Make no mistake, this was intended to be and is a terrorist attack; The question is did UNC have reason to know that Muhammad Reza Taheri-azar was a danger to UNC students?

"CHAPEL HILL, N.C. Mar 3, 2006 (AP) Authorities planned to charge a former University of North Carolina student with attempted murder after he allegedly drove a sport utility vehicle through a popular gathering spot on campus Friday, clipping and scattering startled bystanders. No one was seriously hurt.

Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar, 22, who graduated in December, was in custody. He called to surrender and then awaited officers on a street two miles from the campus, Chapel Hill police Capt. Brian Curran said.

The FBI joined the case because Taheri-azar, a native of Iran, 'allegedly made statements that he acted to avenge the American treatment of Muslims,' said agent Richard Kolko, an FBI spokesman in Washington. 'The ongoing investigation will work to confirm this.' "
