Another lesson we should take away from the recent carnage in the news is that culture matters. And not just when it comes to Muslims. I'm talking about the West, Texas fertilizer explosion. Fourteen people died. Over 160 injured. The accident arguably outstripped the marathon massacre, even though it would definitely make a much less interesting movie.

Cast your vote and watch Real Time to find out who will ultimately win the distinction of being America's most obtuse official!
Donald Borelli is the former Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the FBI's New York Joint Terrorism Task Force. He is currently Senior VP of The Soufan Group, which provides security advice, research and training for governments, companies and institutions.

What's not to like about the al Nusra Front? They're among the Syrian rebels' most well-trained, well-armed, and well-organized opposition groups. They're so strong and well-positioned that other opposition factions feel they can't afford to alienate them. And this month they literally came out and pledged allegiance to al Qaeda and Ayman al-Zawahiri.
