After Islamic gunmen attacked the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya, the collective reaction from the US media was to speculate whether such terror could happen here, as if a jihadist assault on a mall inside America had never before been tried.
CNN was typical: “Can it happen here? Yes, say security experts, but it hasn’t.”
News flash: it did.
On the evening of Feb. 12, 2007, a young Muslim man walked into the Trolley Square mall in Salt Lake City with a pistol-grip, 12-gauge shotgun and a 38-caliber revolver and opened fire on shoppers, killing five and wounding four others, including a pregnant woman.
Twice as many people were killed at the Utah mall than the Boston Marathon. Yet the attack garnered few national headlines.

LOL, read the New York Post article above for the facts on this terrorist's calls for Jihad, and shouting "Allahu Akbar" as he gunned down the shoppers in the mall, with this white wash from the New York Times After a Rampage, Trying to Grasp What Led a Son to Kill where it is all a total mystery and Jihad is never mentioned, but is instead, erased.
