looks like a whitewashed terrorist attack by weaponized muslim 7 killed October 3, 2001 2001 Greyhound bus head-on crash suicide attack by Croation Muslim Army Veteran Near Manchester, Tennessee, Damir Igric for unknown motives commandeered a Greyhound Lines bus en route from Chicago to Orlando, Florida. He slashed the throat of the driver with a utility knife, causing the bus to crash into oncoming traffic. Seven people, including Igric, died as a result from the crash. At 4 a.m., Igric lunged at the driver and slashed his throat. He proceeded to grab the steering wheel in an attempt to direct the vehicle into oncoming traffic. Although there were suggestions of terrorist activity after the recent September 11 attacks had happened, the media concluded that Damir Igric was just an innocent Croatian restaurant worker with mental issues with no connection to any terrorist motive. A temporary nationwide shutdown of the Greyhound bus service was put into effect. Following a very similar incident nearly one year later, Greyhound Lines installed shields on most of its newer coaches that, even if forced open, prevent someone from easily reaching the driver. Other theories pointed out that the suspect was a Croatian Muslim Army veteran, and that Al Qaeda and Iran supported Muslim fighters in both Bosnia and Kosovo.

Oct. 11, 2001 Seattle Murder of Federal Prosecutor Thomas Wales On the evening of October 11, 2001, Wales was sitting at his computer in his home office in his basement. A gunman avoided the security lights in Wales' backyard and shot him in the neck, through a window, with a handgun. The killer left shell casings behind. Seattle Times: "If he was killed because of his work, he would be the first federal prosecutor in the nation’s history to be slain in the line of duty" Some objected to his off-duty activism as a leading gun-control advocate. As of 2011, this murder case remains unsolved and no evidence has been found to establish a motive. It was just one month after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks but the terrorist-style shooting has never been linked to terrorism.
