Minnesota stabbing attack was in fact terrorism after all

Power LineThis past Thursday Abdiraham pleaded guilty to the assault charges. The Star Tribune story by Paul Walsh continues to suggest that the motive for the assaults was psychological.

At the plea hearing, however, Abdiraham issued a statement clarifying the motive for his assaults. Abdiraham explained that he was waging jihad in support of ISIS.

When I reported on this, I believe I mentioned that it sounded like terrorism despite the official explanation being "he was nuts."

When someone says their motive was terrorism, I tend to favor believing them.
