Another Political Murder: Two Army Recruiters Shot

In the nation's second political killing in two days, an Arkansas man upset with the U.S. military shot and killed an army recruiter, and wounded another, in Little Rock yesterday. In a recent report, the Council on Foreign Relations cautioned that homegrown radicalism is particularly difficult for law enforcement officials because it's hard to anticipate the motives and actions of a homegrown terrorist; authorities are still investigating this suspect's motives, but they are thought to be "political and religious," according to CNN.
