While the world awaits details of the latest terrorist horror in Brussels, two knee-jerk responses:  1) the Government vs. Apple pendulum just got a big shove in the direction of Government (“Big Brother,” as some fear); and 2) Mr. Trump’s candidacy — and those of people like him — just got a (big) boost.

Tragic, in many, many ways.

Timing, Motivation

One would surmise that today’s attacks were set in motion by the arrest of the Salah Abdeslam four days ago.

Not necessarily as revenge, as the media is speculating this morning, but because Abdeslam gave up information that compromised his allies, who knew that their window to act before being apprehended was brief.
