I don't know whether it was al-Qaida. I only saw that al Qaida is among the likely suspects according to the newscast this morning.
I think al Qaida is a radical extremist terrorist group that intends to commit as much mayhem to men, women, and children as it can by any means that it can wherever it can using a radical extremist definition of Islam as their justification. I think it is unimaginably cruel, savage, without conscience, and evil and I think every member unwilling to denounce that agenda should be destroyed or forever confined in a place where he will be harmless to others.
The idea of killing is repugnant to me, but if the choice is between them or the innocent, I vote to protect the innocent.
