Musings from an analyst (me):
CNN was absolutely correct to report it in the manner in which it was reported. To label it a terrorist attack, or even a presumed terrorist attack, before the local experts called it as such would have been irresponsible.
This morning's CNN headlines calls it a "presumed terrorist attack," because that is what the local experts are calling it. Again. CNN is absolutely correct in this.
Having said that, I will be glad to again have a prez who will call it what it is (but please The Donald, at least wait until the experts/investigation point it out and quit acting like a 4 year old), which is Islamic terrorism. Obama has many good qualities; refusing to call Islamic terrorism, Islamic terrorism is not one of them. It nauseates me to think that Obama is actually accomplishing anything, other than enabling the Islamists, by refusing to call it exactly what it is.
