Are sniper killings coincidence?

Sniper killings in the Washington D.C. area are being carried out by a sophisticated, cold blooded assassin with no conscience, preying on innocent civilians. A home-grown U.S. terrorist.

Already known facts: One year ago, 2001, the Patriot Act (anti-terrorism legislation) was in Congress. Sens. Leahy and Daschle were questioning the legislation and it was stalled. Daschle and Leahy received anthrax-laced letters and the rest is history. The anthrax threat terrorized the nation and the Patriotic Act was passed in two days, with no debate.

Now, it’s 2002, and Bush’s war resolution is before Congress and D.C.-area terrorism has resumed in the form of nonrelated sniper killings. Coincidence?
