If this had occurred in the U.S. would the Obama administration have somehow found a way to call this act of terrorism workplace violence?
From The Investigative Project on Terrorism,
'A British soldier is dead, and two suspected terrorists were shot in a shocking daylight attack outside London Wednesday.
Some accounts say the soldier was shot, while other witnesses described the attack as a "beheading," the London Telegraph reports, and ITV News obtained video of a man with bloody hands carrying knives and a meat cleaver and warning "you people will never be safe" and saying "We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you."
He also said, "We must fight them as they fight us. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth."
Other witnesses reported hearing the attackers shout "Allahu Akhbar" – God is Great – as they attacked the soldier outside Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolich. The victim was not in uniform.
The attackers left his body in the street and reportedly stayed nearby, "waving knives and a gun, and asked people to take pictures of them "as if they wanted to be on TV or something,'" the BBC reports.
Officials are calling it an Islamist terror attack.'
