Call it what it is

To the editor:

Quite frankly I am tired of the media labelling every terrorist attack, such as what happened on Tuesday in NYC, as a "lone wolf act." Of course such labelling satisfies some in being politically correct in opposing a thorough vetting process.

Killing innocent victims with vehicles was orchestrated by ISIS and Al-Qaeda in their network of terrorism. The note in the vehicle in NYC clearly indicated this act was following this orchestrated terrorism.

Classifying these acts as "lone wolf" would indicate his terrorist actions were not affiliated with any other group...We know better.

Our intelligence community has all the capabilities of weeding out those within our borders that profess this type of terrorism. Unfortunately under the present legal guidelines their hands are tied.

How sad it is that we have let a nation that so many have fought, died and sacrificed for, be restricted to following these below standard protections of our U.S. citizens.

As we approach Veterans Day it hurts me that this politically correct BS allow our sacrifices for the protection of our U.S. citizens to be abandoned.
