Agree and well said.
Why would anyone rule ANYTHING out at this point?
Authorities do it because they're under pressure from higher-ups. Freepers do it because either, a) they like to show how not afraid of terrorism they are, or b) they're posting here with an agenda.
You should see some of the earlier threads on this. Anyone who didn't rule out terrorism was excoriated, ridiculed and oftentimes insulted by these people.
They won't be visiting this thread, I'm sure.
