Millions of people couldn't imagine ANY explanation other than "those
goddamned islamic terrorists!" It seemed like it was a natural progression
-- the logical conclusion, and it was the ONLY explanation.

the "bad" people. At the very least, there must be evidence of complicity,
co-operation or inaction.
