Terrorism in the U.K.

More explosions, more fear.

I heard the oddest interview on NPR this morning. They were interviewing a journalist (I missed the start of the interview and don't have sound on my work PC, so I can't go back and listen to it) who suggested that this might be a copycat bombing. He also suggested that it might be the work of "journalists or school children" demonstrating that London isn't really safe.

That's been echoing in my head ever since I heard it. I'm trying, and failing, to picture any USofA journalist (or "school child") setting off explosions two weeks after 9/11 to demonstrate that it could happen again.

I'm trying to imagine what kind of person could suggest this? And I'm wondering what he might know, that we don't, that led him to the idea?
