Ottawa: An "Ideological and Political Attack" With No Actual Name or Description

From the Daily Mail: 

"A gunman who shot and killed a soldier at Canada's national war memorial and then stormed Parliament before he was gunned down had prepared a video recording of himself that reveals his ideological and political motives, police claim.

"The footage of Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, which is yet to be released, is said to confirm investigators' fears that this was a meticulously planned terrorist attack."

"Royal Canadian Mounted Police Commissioner Bob Paulson said in a statement they have 'persuasive evidence that Michael Zehaf-Bibeau's attack was driven by ideological and political motives."

What kind of ideology?

What politics? What motive?

This is exactly the conversation that needs to take place but a climate of fear and political correctness has gripped our allegedly free society to the point where we cannot even discuss the issues.

The answers to questions such as what ideology, what politics, and what motive with respect to this attack in particular and other terrorist attacks in general, need to be made public.

"Lone wolves" are never really alone, are they?

"Lone wolves" are part of an internet pack. In today's day and age of digital communication, there really is no "alone". Even the most benign human rarely, if ever, ever can act and live in a complete vacuum, bereft of contact with others. Conversely, the most sinister humans amongst us will always need some kind of human collaboration, companionship, fellowship, encouragement and support.

Please note that at the very least, law enforcement forces are saying that this was a "meticulously planned terrorist attack". Not spontaneous or random: meticulous.

That word alone needs to serve as a very serious warning to us all. 

Who is taking this seriously?
