NBC should fire Brian Williams

Last week NBC news anchor commented that the "first several US presidents were terrorists." Funny, I do not remember George Washington kidnapping innocent civilians. I also do not remember Thomas Jefferson blowing up explosives to kill and maim non-combatants. I do not remember James Madison beheading anyone in the name of the revolution. I may have missed it but I do not think John Adams held hostages.

A terrorist is someone who advocates repression and violence in pursuit of their aims. How does he justify his characterization?

Were he in any way responsible, he would resign. If he does not he should be launched. He might use some free time to learn a bit more care in his language.
