In the aftermath of the July 16th Chattanooga murders claiming the lives of five U.S. servicemen and the FBI’s findings concerning the killer’s motivation, we desperately need a correct diagnosis to be made as to cause. Unfortunately, both the media and our government refuse to give it.
The FBI’s official finding on Chattanooga shooter Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez’s motivation was the gunman was a “homegrown violent extremist” acting on his own.
Any time an act or attempted act of violence in the U.S. involves a Muslim clearly exposed to radical Islamist propaganda, the media leads us on a mindless journey to explore America’s societal ills. But rarely does that journey follow the obvious road signs that would take us to the correct destination— radical Islam.
