2002 Los Angeles Airport Shooting

On July 4, 2002, an Egyptian citizen who was living in Irvine, CA but had recently returned from a visit to Egypt pulled a gun at the El Al counter at LAX International Airport, started shooting and stabbing, killing two people and wounding others before he himself was killed by a security guard. FBI concluded that this act was not a terrorist act.

Should this have been deemed a terrorist act under the definition of terrorism that is applied by the FBI? Is this considered a terrorist act or not?
