Okay, let me translate this statement into Conservative American English.
There were a few meetings at the White House last night and they were trying to figure out how to spin the fertilizer accident into a crisis event that could be "managed" by Obama.
"If we claim and maintain that this was a criminal act maybe we can angle it into more federal control."
"Yeah, let's go with that."
The press is NOT happy with that news. They wanted a Zimmerman - but one who really is white...a conservative. Someone they could hate...
Maybe the 'WACO' angle was to try one more time to trash American citizens who happen to be conservative...to give their press boys some hope of red meat... the left wing wanted a distraction - maybe... maybe... it was them who did this....
Kidding - we don't know and I certainly hope it's NOT some fellow citizen - even if they are liberal...I was doing an imitation of the liberal press musing about it being done by the opposition political party.
