Yes, it's terrorism. Say it.
Why is this so difficult for political leaders? They engage in verbal contortions to avoid stating the obvious after a terrorist attack. While it's perfectly appropriate to gather the evidence and available information on the Chelsea explosion before drawing a definitive conclusion as to the motive, it's bizarre the lengths to which some liberal politicians will go to avoid using the word "terrorism."
Speaking to Americans as if they're children and intentionally, consistently avoiding the word "terrorism" - while simultaneously telling people that an explosive device was intentionally placed in a crowded downtown area of Manhattan on a Saturday night - is the pinnacle of leadership failure. Avoiding calling a threat what it is speaks to a persistent weakness among our political leadership and sends a dangerous signal to the people around the world who wish to do us catastrophic harm.
