A man in a private security uniform stabbed nine people at a Minnesota shopping mall, reportedly asking one victim if he or she was Muslim before an off-duty police officer shot and killed him in an attack the Islamic State group claimed as its own.
None of the nine people who were stabbed in Saturday nights attack received life-threatening wounds, St. Cloud police Chief Blair Anderson said. He said it doesnt appear that anyone else was involved in the attack at the Crossroads Center in St. Cloud, which began at around 8 p.m. and was over within minutes. [ ]
An Islamic State-run news agency, Rasd, claimed Sunday that the attacker was a soldier of the Islamic State who had heeded the groups calls for attacks in countries that are part of a U.S.-led anti-IS coalition.

Duh. Your tax dollars at work or not.
Investigating stabbings as possible terror act? No! Really? I mean, who’da thunk it!
Let’s see....does it make the threshold of terror?
Full Definition of terror -
1: a state of intense fear
2 a : one that inspires fear : scourge,; b : a frightening aspect; c : a cause of anxiety : worry; d : an appalling person or thing; especially : brat
3: reign of terror
4: violent or destructive acts (as bombing) committed by groups in order to intimidate a population or government into granting their demands.
Gee, it’s a tough one....
America's premier Agency For The Protection Of Democrat Pols is on the case!
Obama has turned the entire government into a JOKE.
More like the gang that couldn’t shoot straight.
The purpose of the FBI involvement is to shut off the information flow. The local law can now hide behind the FBI, and claim they can’t talk.
After Comey’s cover for Hillary, not much faith in the FBI but it’s no surprise that radar gun operators can’t figure out if it’s a terrorist act.
Geee........... I wonder...
Are we making progress?
Usually by now officials would have released a statement that they don’t know the cause but they know it doesn’t have anything to do with muslims or Islam.
Maybe it was more Workplace Violence.
Or just bad Karma...
We need to fire everyone who will not cross this political correctness line to state that some act is terrorism.
It’s back to the looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, so it must be a kitten.
” the attack was being investigated as a possible act of terrorism”
Gee. Ya think?
What is that thing? Is it something we are supposed to urinate on?
Yup. Happening all over this weekend.
The perp was.....”asking one victim if he or she was Muslim”....
“Rasd, claimed Sunday that the attacker was a soldier of the Islamic State...
Guess, the FBI expects terrorists to carry a sign decreeing they are indeed “Terrorists”. Might be a good idea to start recruiting a few 3rd grade school kids for their jobs.
It is MN; so they will stick with “possible” terrorism.
HHH died before the “age of terrorism”. He would tell them a thing or two.
Well, if he didn’t have actual criminal intent....ya know, like Hitlery...
And this is the 2nd least unexpected headline of the day.
