Ben Bernanke, Terrorist?

Last Friday, Bernard von NotHaus was convicted in federal court of counterfeiting. His crime was owning and selling silver coins he made himself. In the FBI's press release announcing NotHaus' conviction, federal attorney Anne M. Tomkins is quoted as saying:
“Attempts to undermine the legitimate currency of this country are simply a unique form of domestic terrorism. While these forms of anti-government activities do not involve violence, they are every bit as insidious and represent a clear and present danger to the economic stability of this country. We are determined to meet these threats through infiltration, disruption, and dismantling of organizations which seek to challenge the legitimacy of our democratic form of government.”

That got me to wondering about two questions. Does this mean that Ben Bernanke is a domestic terrorist? And does this mean that the FBI has infiltrated the Federal Reserve?
