FBI agents want domestic terrorism to be named as such

So said O'Connor, the head of the FBI Agents Association. Currently there is no federal law criminalizing domestic terrorism and they want that changed.

"Calling it what it is is something that I believe is important. It’s easy for people to wrap their heads around someone coming in with an internationally based ideology and committing a crime. But when it’s a domestic terrorist, because there’s no charge, we can’t get our head wrapped around it. [...] If that crime of force or violence is done to forward a social or political agenda, then that person fits the elements of domestic terrorism.”
