First a recap of a previous Democurmudgeon post: "The pilot was identified as Andrew Stack. The IRS has offices in the building complex that was struck. Federal officials said shortly after the crash into the Austin office complex that houses FBI and IRS offices that they had no reason to suspect the incident was terrorism related."
Now comes the jaw dropping update below from ABC News with Stack's adult daughter:
Asked if he considered her father a hero, she said "yes." She spoke in a telephone interview from Norway, where she lives.By the way, you won't believe why Samantha Bell moved to Norway…government health care benefits. Check out this bizarre twist near the end the video clip, it's the ultimate in hypocrisy.

"The daughter of (Joe Stack) is calling her father a hero. Samantha Bell, tells ABC's "Good Morning America" the plane attack was "inappropriate." But she praised his anti-government and anti-tax views. Bell says her father was not a hero for taking a life, but "because now maybe people will listen."
Stack targeted the IRS office building in Austin ... killing employee Vernon Hunter and himself, after posting a ranting manifesto against the agency.
Hunter's son, Ken Hunter, says he's alarmed by comments that called the pilot a hero.
"The only difference he made was he took away from my family and murdered a 20-year U.S. Army vet," Ken Hunter said."
