Man of Unknown Religion Dies of Unknown Causes

Two clues, though. The man, who was found dead in a hotel room in Denver just as the Democrats are about to stage their convention, named Saleman Abdirahman Dirie, has been positively identified as "Canadian."

He was found dead in his room next to a jar labeled "Cyanide." Police suspect the jar may contain cyanide.

A man with a similar name left the following blog comment, referring to the murder of a Somali Christian by Islamists:

Please donít talk s**t , that man [the Christian blogger] deserves what happened to him , simply because having the bible in one hand , and a bread in the other hand , is not a correct thing ,! Kill Them , Kill them , Kill them , that is my massage,!

The FBI suspects he may be a Quebecois separatist.

Okay, not really, but given the Rocky Mountain News' failure to identify him as anything except "Canadian," what other motive could he possibly have?

Although the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force was alerted and is helping in the investigation, Wright emphasized that agents do not have information that would lead them to believe that the victim was a "terrorist or has terrorist ties."

Define "information."

Hmmm... Okay, I think I'm wrong to snark about the FBI or even the MSM; there's not any cause to jump to conclusions before the test results are back (though it seems at the very least this guy thought he was making a cyanide gas bomb, given the fact his bottle of deadly chemicals was labeled "cyanide").

But I'm getting pretty sick of law enforcement and the media refusing to mention salient facts -- like that this guy seems to be a jihadist -- for fear that we just can't handle that information without going out on Muslim Passer-By Lynching Patrols.
