More than ZERO is Too Many Terrorists

ImageWhy does the left think that it makes a substantial difference if the Boston bombers were acting in collaboration with [fill in the blank terrorist sponsors] rather than acting independently?  Do they think that they score points against conservatives if there is not explicit evidence of Islamist jihadism on a large scale in this particular episode, as if they can just close their eyes and Muslim extremists will just go away?

Why is it better that there might be pockets of motivated self-starters among evil men rather than a highly sophisticated order of mass murderers?  They have no real love of life, they just want to win the political debate about whether there is any real national threat that emanates from the Islamists fundamentalists.

I wonder: If the bombers had been from, say, Texas, had Rebel flags on their pickup trucks and were registered Republicans, would MSNBC go to such lengths to make the point that we should be happy that a couple loners were the guilty party and there is no need to generalize or otherwise impugn the cause of any large group with which the bombers were just incidentally associated.
