WTF difference does it make if the guy was acting alone or for Al Qaeda? It was a freaking muslim terrorist suicide bomber who failed. It doesn't fricking matter if the guy's a lone freak or part of a terror cell, does it? It's still a frickin' terrorist attack.
All he managed to do was to set his legs on fire, though, which makes it a failed terror attack. This is a good thing. Thank God this anus was an incompetent terrorist.
...come Sunday my sister is flying home to New Orleans; and this is going to make her trip even more fun. I feel sorry for her.
