    I think what we have seen over the last 12 years is a gradual decline the aggregate intelligence of terrorists in general and Al Qaeda specifically as their brightest bulbs are now dead or in custody and their replacements are increasingly dimmer bulbs.

    This is what happens with extraordinary events -- confirmation bias runs wild and suddenly accidents that happen everyday without people taking much notice suddenly are tentatively woven into the attack. Let's hope the scope of this attack is limited.

    They just did report people are locked down in hotels.....and that they may not have phone service. Also that the JFK incident was a Fire and not related.

    My prayers for them and for you. It is a hard thing to have such uncertainty.

    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    As another poster has said - cell phone / mobile phone networks have been closed down as trigger signals to any devices cannot now use the network to detonate any device. It's still early - the police reports I saw did not use the word "bomb."

    Wish you all and your American family all the best, but I also wish the best for the innocents who were out innocently enjoying a sporting festival.

    I hope the number of killed is lower but I fear it is closer to the truth considering the reports of how badly those injuries were.

    Don't get ahead of yourself, we don't know who's responsible.
