The CBC is doing its best to minimize last week's acts of Islamic terrorism in St. Jean-sur-Richelieu and in Ottawa by characterizing those responsible as "self-radicalized" and "lone wolves". The article quotes a University of Waterloo Professor named Lorne Dawson who is also the co-director of the Canadian Network for Research on Terrorism, Security and Society. Dawson states, "They're both lone wolves. Both a bit more impulsive, bit more opportunistic, if there was planning, it's amateurish."
Well, this amateurishness resulted in the deaths of two Canadian soldiers and forced the Canadian Parliament on lockdown for a day. Some amateurs.
