  •  If the people you mention had confined themselves (4+ / 0-)

    to

    reading pro-violent Internet websites, becoming "radicalized," publishing a magazine, or giving anti-U.S. sermons
    you might have a point.

     But since they each carried out or attempted to carry out  

    acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State;
    (B) appear to be intended—
    (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population;
    (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or
    (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping;
    they seem to be homegrown terrorists to me. Not conflated at all. If there are examples of others in the article who did not attempt to carry out any violent acts, but only read about how to do so or even said they  wanted to do so, then you should point them out in your diary. Otherwise, you don't seem to have any evidence of your diary title.
