“He probably told s friend of his plans and then killed him when the response wasnt what he expected.”
I was thinking that the “friends” were in some way involved and they had a falling out. I hope that the new politically correct FBI can even see Islam and Jihad as a danger. I have my doubts that an organization headed by an obvious closet Islamist can bring itself to see reality.
Maybe his friend was an extra special friend and he felt guilty about their special times together, especially after becoming religious.
