    I noticed how he refrained from using ‘terrorist attack’ since the Reich-wing would jump all over it, like they did with Benghazi. Next thing from the evangelical Reich-wingers will be to blame it on allowing gay marriage in the state.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the the Castro-Chavista regime is behind the attack and used it as a distraction from the stolen elections down in Venezuela.

    @CB: I’d imagine President Obama refrained from calling it a “terrorist attack” because at this point we don’t know who did it. It could be a terrorist group but it could also be a random psycho, or something else.

    What is important to do is to not blame particular ethnic groups in general, all the more so when we don’t have the facts. I would not want to risk repeating, perhaps at a much lower level, the outrageous treatment of Japanese Americans during World War II, where U.S. citizens were thrown into concentration camps due to racism and paranoia. Then it took a good 40 years before the U.S. deigned to even offer an apology. I’m sure President Obama is trying to make sure that there is not a public reaction that would result in innocent people being scapegoated.
