Islamic terrorism: Crime or war?

Time to Stop Reacting to Terrorists as if They Were Crooks  "From what I know, the three to four police on the scene responded quickly and followed the shooter into a back room.  Along the way, more people were killed than can now be blamed on Mateen with certainty.  Once in the back room and contained, the police treated Mateen like any other criminal, bank robber, or distraught individual, who wanted to live; backed off; and waited for a negotiator.  Meanwhile, the people hiding in that back room were being shot at will.

"The Clinton administration made a fundamental error when it decided to treat terrorists as criminals.  The result has been acknowledged as less than spectacular by most everyone but Madeleine Albright and the Clintons.  Our police, though, followed this example.
"Police follow procedures, with good cause, but it's time for procedures to discriminate killers from crooks and treat them differently.  A shooter in the midst of a mass of people, particularly in a gun-free zone, should be responded to as a terrorist by police and by civilians in the vicinity acting in self-defense." . . .

". . . "In our current state, we have Scott Baio  yes, Chachi from Happy Days  who has perhaps best said what everyone reasonable in the West is thinking:
[President Barack Obama's reluctance to say] Islamic terror [means] he's dumb, he's Muslim or he's a Muslim sympathizer ... And I don't think he's dumb ... [what is the] end game? ... Is it to totally eliminate the United States as it was created and founded and the way it is now? I'm baffled by the lack of anything happening.
"And now word is coming out that the Attorney General will be "scrubbing" the 911 calls made by the Orlando Islamic terrorist of any reference to Islam.
"The days in the West grow dark, indeed."
