Skatteprotest ender med flykræsj

februar 19, 2010

AUSTIN, Texas—A pilot slammed his small plane into a seven-story building that housed the local office of the Internal Revenue Service Thursday, apparently killing himself and one agency employee, in what federal officials described as a deliberate suicide attack amid a long-running tax dispute.

Investigators are looking into whether the pilot, 53-year-old Andrew Joseph Stack, also set his house on fire before taking off in his single-engine Piper Dakota around 9:40 a.m. local time.

Officials said they were evaluating an antigovernment manifesto posted on the Internet earlier Thursday, signed «Joe Stack,» which suggested he planned the crash. «Violence not only is the answer, it is the only answer,» the author wrote toward the end of a tirade against the IRS posted at 9:12 a.m. on a Web site registered to Mr. Stack. He described himself as a contract software engineer.
