Terrorists. Bad guys with guns. Al Qaeda. Mean mob. Attack. Opportunistic violence. It’s post-Quadhafi Libya, for Pete’s sake. Arab Spring. Winter. War. Battle. Skirmish. Words. CIA. FBI. NSC. Men and women misbehaving.
Incompetence. Distractions. Who cares? The world is in turmoil. Lessons learned and fixes for the future. Rather than parsing language to describe tragic events of the past. Geez! Get a grip. Small talk. Big problems.
