Attorney General Eric Holder won't say "radical Islam" is a reason Faisal Shahzad tried to blow a hole in Times Square:

"There are a variety of reasons why people have taken these actions," says Holder. "We're in the process now of talking to Mr. Shahzad to try to understand what it is that drove him to take the actions" that he did.

Stephen F. Hayes and Thomas Joscelyn have an article in this week's issue of THE WEEKLY STANDARD on how the Obama administration fails to call acts of terror what they are.
