Funny, no one rushed in there batting an eye about the stereotyping there and jumping to accusation.
So I'll do as I did there. Its still a bit to early to say anything for definite. While things are pointing towards the potential for it being islamic terrorism I'd hold off on saying it as a definite. That said the recent trip, his descent, and the taliban's claiming of the attack all lean heavily to that (far more than "white guy = tea partier) but right now the only definite fact is likely attempted terorrist act.
However, when all the information comes out and if it does turn out to be Islamic Terror I do hope it is properly labeled.
But to be upset people aren't making definitive statements prior to finding out the majority of the facts is a bit ludicrous.
