A senior Obama administration official, speaking on background Friday to a group of reporters, characterized the Fort Hood shooting as “an act of terrorism,” the first time an administration official has used that term in describing the massacre.

“To me, what he did certainly was using terror at its worst,” the official said, defining terrorism as the use of violence to promote political beliefs. The official spoke to reporters on condition of anonymity in order to provide insight into the administration’s discussions. blog it
