The terrorists who bombed a Bloomington Minnesota Mosque last year have been caught. See the headlines:
Huh. No headline.
Well, anyway, it happened, and it is a strange, Coen Brothers-esque story, and people on my Facebook page are figuring it out. Bottom line: Trump people blew up the mosque to send the Muslims a message and make them want to leave the country.

Anyway, I’ve seen and hear a lot of whining and bellyaching about this term, and Secretary Clinton’s statement.
