      Well, throw that thought back. If regular, not irregular, CSA troops
      performing their duties can be regarded as terrorists, then of course
      it means that George Washington and the others were all terrorists, too.

      Ironically, some acts committed by people with CSA association and
      support could be regarded as terrorist acts, something I view with
      deep regret and hold Davis responsible for [and wonder who else should
      be blamed]. In particular:
      -attempted firebombing of a Vermont town
      -attempted firebombing of 24 New York hotels. Count em, yep, 24!
      -assassination attempts. This last I would like to think was totally
      the acts of people deciding to do what they did on their own, however,
      there is evidence their original organization was CSA supported.
