These issues are a very slithery mess of grays from which the only clear black/white contrast is that only psycho/socio-paths think terrorism is a good thing. Although, we sane ones seem to find it easier to countenance when it is happening to people we don't like.
At a time like this the media should concentrate of informing people rather than alarming them - even if it means selling less advertising. I don't consider the ramblings and speculations of ill informed comentators, commenting on what others of the same ilk have said, as information.
I wonder if SEX has more drawing power these days than ANTHRAX.
