-——the principle of Occam’s razor applies-——

Trying to make a war into American internal machinations is simplistic conservative balderdash. FReepers fail to give the enemy credit for the ability to act and conduct a war.

The simple solution is that there is a war and the incident was a well planned and successful enemy assault that killed a high level target.

While others choose to ignore facts right in front of their faces.

What makes you think terrorists would think a single ambassador was a desirable target? No matter how 'popular' he was with some of the people there, he would just be replaced.

You're underestimating the enemy if you think they would make such a maximum effort for a minimal result.

Had they continued to occupy the embassy...maybe. Had they held the bodies and submitted a list of demands for their return....perhaps.

But just to kill less than a handful of Americans and parade the dead ambassador bare-assed through the streets?

Sorry. I'm not buying it.
