If It Walks Like a Duck.....
There must be some mistake.
So here is what just happened in Roanoke, Virginia: A 20-year-old guy named Wasil Farooqui, who recently traveled to Turkey and may have tried to cross into Syria, tried to behead two people he didn't know while yelling, "Allahu Akhbar". So the FBI is investigating whether it was terrorist-inspired even though he was reportedly already "on their radar".
I can't imagine why they would suspect this guy had anything to do with Islamic terrorism. Just a bunch of circumstantial evidence if you ask me. And did the people who heard him say, "Allahu Akhbar" know any Arabic? Probably not. Maybe he was shouting, "Ollie, Ollie oxen free."
We should start a lottery and guess where the next such attack will take place. Think of the jackpots involved.
