75. MSNBC still seems to be speculating possible terrorism primarily (at minimum)
in terms of Middle East/Al Qaeda extremism, including when they say "home-grown"

They referred to the recent deaths of the 2 top leaders recently, the Najibullah Zazi trial - they keep mentioning these things, but I don't know why unless they have factual, official info of the connection. If so, they should say so.

They've also been talking of this in terms of being an IED, which many people might link immediately with who we're fighting in the ME.

... in the time I wrote this, I'm (thankfully) hearing other theories. Still, they've been really putting primary weight in they're own speculations on that one side a bit too much. We don't know, and (clearly) they don't know either...

Maybe I'm wrong, but does happen when I think.
