What a security expert said on MSNBC about the French terror attack has me really scratching my head


Wait, what?

Terror expert Laith Alkhouri was on MSNBC Thursday afternoon talking about the attacks in France, and after host Joy Reid asked if the perpetrators could be using help to evade authorities, Alkhouri mentioned they could be part of a "lone-wolf pack."

To be clear, the definition of "lone wolf" from Merriam Webster's dictionary is, "a person who prefers to work, act, or live alone."

Alone, then, would be the antithesis of a "pack."

See for yourself:

If you're confused, consider that the group Grabien put together a montage showing different media outlets floating the idea of the attacks being the result of a lone wolf. Now, that isn't too odd in the aftermath of terrorism, but the point Grabien seems to be making is that the media are trying hard to push such a narrative. Using something like "lone-wolf pack" certainly helps that argument.

"If you weren't aware that lone wolves can operate in groups, you weren't watching cable news Wednesday, as analysts discussed the massacre of cartoonists and others at the French satirical publication, Charlie Hebdo," the Grabien video says in the description.
