Public opinion makes “what’s a fact” so nebulous. Mentioned it to my mother this morning and she mentioned he was connected to ISIS. I said “Oh, Ma, they ALWAYS take credit for everything. Makes them appear powerful”. I guess some news outlet she looks at pointed to ISIS taking credit, saw the headline and moved on with her day. Of course maybe ISIS is telling the truth. But I’ve known enough old white guys dreaming of going down in a blaze of glory of some kind who harbor years of resentment that working alone doesn’t surprised me in the least.
