I guess it's OK to call it terrorism now

You recall that Rupert Murdoch's Melbourne tentacle published a headline the other day that suggested that the attempted car bombing in New York City was not a terrorist act, presumably because a suspicious-looking white guy was seen on a security video. Of course, they didn't say that was the reason; the article focused on the amateurish nature of the bomb's design, but we all know the real reason. Well, the white guy turned out to be a red herring, and now they've got a brown guy in custody, so you can be sure they'll be back on the "terrorism" script now (and let's forget about the fact that the bomb is no more sophisticated now than when it was found, shall we?)
