Terrorist Attack

We may never know the motive for Paddock's crime but this one is easy.  NBC New York quotes the mayor (a far left Democrat) as calling it a terrorist attack:

At least eight people were killed and nearly a dozen more were injured when a truck driver deliberately mowed down people and targeted a school bus in lower Manhattan Tuesday in what authorities called a "cowardly act of terror."

A 29-year-old Uzbek national living in New Jersey, Sayfullo Saipov, drove a Home Depot rental pickup truck at least 10 blocks down the popular West Side Highway bike path from West Houston to Chambers streets, hitting nearly a dozen pedestrians and bicyclists before crashing into a school bus near Stuyvesant High School and elementary school P.S. 89, just a few blocks north of the World Trade Center, authorities said.

I am assuming Islamic terrorism.  Is there a Southern Uzbek Association of Fundamentalist churches?  No, he says he did it for ISIS.  Trump's concerns about inadequately vetted immigrants is obviously just ignorant bigotry.

  1. When they started showing the first images of the driver leaving the area I stated to a friend that he either was wearing a bandana or he had a full beard like many devote Muslims. Turns out my aging eyes is still able to pick out a facial feature even in grainy video.
