LONDON—A man believed to be a serving British soldier was brutally murdered Wednesday near a London barracks in what Prime Minister David Cameron said appeared to be a terrorist attack.from Man murdered in London in suspected Islamist terror attack
Cameron called the attack “appalling” and said: “There are strong indications that it is a terrorist incident.”
Armed police shot and wounded the two suspected attackers.
It seems to me that one possible reason for this insane attack was to "prove" that these terrorists don't work for the British government. They were probably put up to it by British Intelligence, ultimately, although they wouldn't know it themselves.
Note that the victim was a cadet, and hardly someone who was likely to have killed innocent people in Afghanistan, and that this fits the pattern of the victims of the "war on terror" being typically innocent, or "relatively" innocent (such as the good guys in the military, like this cadet, who are among the worst victims of the "war on terror").
