    Yes, because Obama has gone so easy on terrorists.

    Because it might not have been? And making a judgment, any judgment, without the facts is foolish. Why not wait to find out what's really going on before applying a label? Why does it matter what it's called? It matters who did it and why, and how quickly we can discover this and apprehend those responsible.

    This is what is so funny. Wait till the next drone event. OMG Obama is killing American terrorist in YEMEN (or somewhere). But he is polite when speaking of them on the news, OH NO. I really dont get this discussion. Jindhal is right.

    I sense that Obama and his media are desperately wishing this was a domestic terrorist to use politically, and they probably already know it isn't, so they're going through a careful, painstaking series of meetings to determine just how they can couch this.

    How can they "couch" this? The RW has jumped the shark.

    Looks to me like you and CanadaJohn get a lot of your information from the same source.

    Explaining satire is pointless. You either get it or you don't.

    All of which allows the man, supposedly the most eloquent President ever to live, to obfuscate until such time as his friends in the media save him.
    See? Paying attention to nomenclature and word usage is important.
