I'd usually be the first to use the word "terrorist" to describe a Muslim who tries to kill people while talking about the "will of Allah."

And how difficult would it be to build a crude but effective explosive device? Hint: not very. That we haven't seen multiple incidents of individual terrorist attacks speaks volumes about the improved intelligence and security measures over the past few years.
