@20committee Anyway, gotta run. Thanks for the respectful discussion.@20committee This is not altogether different than the violence committed by gangs: young, disaffected men w/out good prospects or guidance.@20committee I can imagine leaders of terrorist-movements are adept at exploiting young men (women?) who are unstable & capable of violence.@Karnythia Just looking at those pictures makes my kidneys ache...Secret Service photos of Hurricane & Jordan (l-r), each a Belgian Malinois, who took down fence jumper @markknoller http://t.co/2GOzt37EEz
Retweeted by L George@20committee Thx. Do we define a terrorist by who is attacked; ie govt? Or is affiliation (Muslim jihadists) more important?@20committee @Kudzu81 Drug use may be caused by underlying mental illness.@20committee Don't know your jargon...@Kudzu81 @20committee I'd question the importance of the 'ideals' of mentally disturbed person.@20committee Call him what you want. But my concern is truly operational. Surely an understanding of psychology is warranted.@20committee Confusing or conflating ppl w/ real illness with those bent on destabilizing Western govts. risks missing imp. details.@20committee And the ways authorities investigate and stop the two kinds of violent actors are very, very different.@20committee Because, a mentally disturbed person can be influenced by radical groups who seek power by violence, but motivations are diff.@20committee I hope security experts are nuanced enough to distinguish between genuine terrorism and the actions of mentally disturbed ppl.@msbellows #tyrannieReally interesting: @deborahamos says ISIS makes some of it's money trading in antiquities. Wonder who is buying?
Retweeted by L GeorgeLast gasps. “@Hadas_Gold: CNN's new show: "High Profits" will follow two of "Marijuana Moguls as they Seek to Build a Franchise Empire"”A non-transparent grand jury process and a leaky investigation is not the way the outcome of this important case should be determined.

Retweeted by L George@MaggiePriceless I hope those that tend react with fear against anybody different aren't empowered by this act to ramp up hateful rhetoric.@MaggiePriceless He clearly intended to target those in power. And I am so very sorry for the loss of your soldier. I am sad for his son.@MaggiePriceless I don't think he was clinically insane in that he knew what he was doing. But he was obviously a troubled person.@MaggiePriceless That fact still doesn't excuse his actions. And it's still important to understand the appeal of jihad to young men.@MaggiePriceless It seems like this guy was mentally ill. What if he had joined a weird cult and done the same thing?
