The whole point of terrorism is that they can't go to war or they will lose, so they attack us in hopes that we will make more restrictive laws and this lady is taking the bait.
It's seems to be people going it alone now rather than carefully orchestrated strikes. With that in mind these people are just brainwashed by 'alternative' facts. It's not a physical conflict any more except for acts of violence that are almost a symptom rather than the end game. We are in a war of information and the mass murderers are enticed by a sparkling golden ticket, the fame offered by our own profiteering media outlets who erupt into a ratings frenzy at the scent of radicalised blood spilling.
When neither side actually employs much of the truth, exposing lies always makes it really easy for someone in your own echo-chamber to swallow any horse-shit you feed them immediately after.
