Obama's Letter to IRS in Support of Murdered Worker

Timothy Geithner delivered this message from Obama:
To the men and women of the Internal Revenue Service at Austin:
I asked Secretary Geithner to carry this message to you.
It is with great sadness that I write to you on the tragic events of February 18th. You, your families and colleagues are in my thoughts and prayers.
Michelle and I extend our condolences to you on the death of your colleague, Mr. Vernon Hunter. Vernon dedicated his life to service to this great country, serving over 20 years in the military before joining the IRS. We mourn his death.
As we work with law-enforcement agencies to investigate the events leading up to this plane crash, I want the dedicated employees of the IRS to know that I am thankful for your dedication, courage and professionalism as we rebuild in Austin. And as you continue your work, we will do what is needed to ensure your safety.
We are grateful for your service to this country.
May God bless you and the United States of America.
At first I thought describing Joe Stack (the guy who crashed his plane into the IRS building killing Vernon) as a terrorist was a little extreme. But now that his daughter calls her father a hero, he perfectly fits the definition of a terrorist. His daughter confirms he was trying to make a point by terrorizing the general population through violence. She says: "Yes. Because now maybe people will listen." She called her father's actions "inappropriate." What??????
Stack is not a hero in any regard. He's the definition of a coward. His actions were immoral and despicable on all grounds and what's more---he didn't make a point. Stack is merely dead and he murdered someone else with the intent of murdering maybe hundreds.
Stack seemed to have a problem with entitlement and an ego that's out of whack with reason.
