The article actually says very little.
The most interesting part is at the end,””We want a wiring diagram,” Miller said. “We want an organized picture: ‘It was al Qaeda who ordered it, it was Ansar al Sharia who carried it out, it was this group that assisted. The problem is, the lines have blurred between those groups and their members. Ansar al Sharias are popping up in places like Benghazi, but also in Yemen, also in Tunisia, in all these countries — and they’re not al Qaeda, but they are reading from the al Qaeda narrative and they are being influenced by people who are formerly influential extremists in al Qaeda.”
“The actual truth is, the picture isn’t that clear, but we can piece it together, and that’s not satisfying to people who are used to saying, ‘You can attach this attack to that group,’” said Miller.”
They don’t want to say terrorists did it without specifying their actual affiliation? In other words they’ll bend over backwards to not say terrorists in some generic fashion because people will associate that word with Muslims.Better to specify and essentially carve the terrorist out from the general Muslim population.
