Whaddya Mean WILL?

I’ve been watching media figures raise debate over whether the current climate of real and feigned anger will push someone to attack the government.

What do they mean WILL? It’s already happened!

In February, in an attack shockingly akin to ‘Oklahoma City’ and ‘9/11’, Joe Stack flew an airplane into a building in an attempt to kill Internal Revenue Service employees. Why have we forgotten this attack on the government?

Are we ignoring this attack because Stack screwed up and only killed one other person? Would we still be talking about this attack if Stack had killed hundreds?

Hell, CNN, you did a special on Joe Stack and then, the next day, asked whether Tea Party anger could push someone to attack the government. Maybe your correspondents should confer with each other once in a while.
