World Trade crash...

As I said before, the middle-eastern political groups are not given to such acts
of vastly undirected violence. They pick their targets, though their weapons
aren't always as well directed as they'd like, and they normally kill themselves
in the process. They're not willing to commit a truly gross act such as this
because of the scale of violence it invites as retribution, though they seldom
fail to claim credit for a successful attack.

This truly smells of our homegrown militia types.
