    I did get that in your post...I simply don't agree with it. Just because you said it's an act of war doesn't make that a true statement. You seem to presume that just because I don't agree with your assertion that this is an act of war, ergo, I must believe it's a "crime scene"...maybe you're the one who's projecting your presumptuous nature on to me?? The attacks on al-Khobar Towers in Saudi and the attacks on our embassies in Tanzania and Kenya were not considered acts of war either. If I would define it as anything, it would be an act of terrorism and as such, falls under the jurisdiction of the FBI. It would appear that US Gov't policy and its history of procedure handling attacks of this nature supports my statement.

    Hog wash, crime scenes often have elements that investigators don't disclose for very valid reasons

    Those attacks were prior to the actual policy of the war on terror.

    If it's not a war, then what are all the drone attacks and the SEAL raid which killed bin Laden?

    Good point. Let's not forget the drone attack on a US citizen in Yemen, too.

    If it's not a war, that's a murder.

    You don't think they should be investigating the scene gathering evidence and information?

    Like they do at crime scenes.

    Sure, but it's not a crime, so there's no need to maintain the same kind of silence. It's not like they need to worry about tainting evidence or a potential jury. That's why you maintain silence.

    If the State Department doesn't want to tip off the enemy because they've discovered something valuable, that's one thing. But that's not what the State Department said. They said it's out of their hands; it's a crime scene, and we can't comment. That's bovine excrement.

    Fine let's let AQ know what we learn so they can make accommodations for their next attack

    What I cited above is taken directly from the FBI's web site, which, incidentally, is a policy that is current...meaning, it IS part of the actual policy of the war on terror.
