Napolitano rules out terrorism in IRS plane crash
By The Post's Homeland Security correspondent Spencer S. Hsu:
A suicide plane crash that killed the pilot and an Internal Revenue Service worker at an office building in Austin, Tex., Feb. 18 was not a case of domestic terrorism, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Tuesday in a radio interview.
The pilot, A. Joseph Stack, 53, "had his own personal issues and personal motives," and was carrying out a personal agenda, said Napolitano, interviewed on The Diane Rehm Show.
"To our belief, he was a lone wolf. He used a terrorist tactic, but an individual who uses a terrorist tactic doesn't necessarily mean they are part of an organized group attempting an attack on the United States," Napolitano said.
