As is often the case when news is breaking, we get a lot of information in a hurry, some of it not entirely true.
We also get a lot of conspiracy theories and we are getting some of those already. I find them interesting but don't usually believe most of them. I am honestly not sure what I do and do not believe about this story yet.
I do have a few questions.
It appears as though these two are Islamist extremists. Who else is involved? Why no claim of responsibility? And why knock off the 7-11? Stay with me here.
At 5:20 on the afternoon the photos of these two are plastered over every screen in the country, heck the world for that matter. What would you do? Go out five hours later and try to knock off a convenience store? Really??
Next up you carjack a vehicle, drive around for about a half hour and then left the car's owner go. Seems plausible that this guy might have already seen the photos of you and you just let him go? Not to mention that you've just days ago killed three people and injured many more. Having a hard time trying to figure that out.
Then we hear that these two have been in the country for some time. The older brother for a decade or more. The younger a star student and pre-med student. If you plan to pull off a terror attack, why do it in your own town where lots of folks have seen your face. Detonate a couple of IED's, kill and maim a bunch of folks then just head to the house?
Maybe over time some of these will be explained. Meantime just call be dubious of some of the reported "facts".
