Given the U.S.gov ernments history of "false flag " operations,or U.S. government sponsored coups , do you think we were given the "full picture"?(here's a list of U.S backed coup d'états ,the reason given by the gov, and the real reason for their overthrow.)<quoted text>
There was a mitigating circumstance left out in the first example. It failed to give the full picture. Given a history of suicide attempts, I would be locked into a psych ward even though I was doing the opposite and trying to save my life.

These are United States Government sponsored terrorist actions.
I copied and pasted the Definition of terrorism directly from the fbi website for accuracy. This is not the complete definition .Just the first part .The complete version can be found here http://www.fbi.gov/stats-services/publication...
"There is no single, universally accepted, definition of terrorism. Terrorism is defined in the Code of Federal Regulations as the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives(28 C.F.R. Section 0.85)."
Point being the government doesn't provide the "full picture".
