Lost in the Shuffle
All of today's headlines were about some Supreme Court decision, relegating to the lower reaches of the media websites was this:
- A suspected Islamist pinned the severed head of his boss to the gates of a US-owned gas factory in France Friday in what President Francois Hollande called a "terrorist" attack.
The alleged assailant, identified as 35-year-old married father-of-three Yassin Salhi, also smashed his vehicle into the Air Products factory, causing an explosion.
The grisly attack near France's second city of Lyon came on an especially bloody day worldwide, with at least 37 gunned down at a beach resort in Tunisia and 25 killed in a suicide bombing in Kuwait claimed by Islamic State extremists.
Just asking, but might this be a prelude to something brewing over the Fourth of July weekend? Something that might explain the palpable panic down at HQ lately? There is a rumor of a "redeployment" of certain personnel, but that is standard for big holiday weekends and has been for over ten years now.
