A bomb, broadcast silence, and a very confused FBI
From ThinkProgress: A Bomb Went Off At A Colorado NAACP. Where Is The 24-Hour News Cycle?
Two thoughts. First, along with many others, I wonder why this doesn’t get the television coverage it deserves.
Second: “although the FBI is investigating the motives behind the bombing and says domestic terrorism is still a possible motive [emphasis added].”
“Possible motive?!” WTH. It seems simple enough to me that if someone, citizen or otherwise, plants a bomb here or anywhere, unless that person is authorized by the State (capitalized to distinguish state as a principle), which has the monopoly on the use of violence, then there’s no other explanation necessary. Terrorists plant bombs. Full stop. This needs the full force of a federal investigation until the terrorists are caught, and they should have the book thrown at them. It’s not about whether or not there were injuries. The attempt is all that matters. That the attempt failed should make not a bit of difference.
