I believe that in the coming week, the proper framework 
for last weeks events will emerge as a criminal action. 
That is, it is only an act of war insofar as it might 
be state-sponsored.  Otherwise, it is an act by a 
large, well-financed and coordinated criminal organization 
who have committed murder, kidnap, and vandalism. 
This may seem tepid or simplified, but it accounts for the agencies 
that will now come into play in certain responses and 
the means they will use.   In effect, Osama bin Laden is nothing 
more than a zealous version of Al Capone who just 
made the mistake of committing the St Valentine's Day 
Massacre, an act which dissolved his support in the 
citizenry of Chicago.
 
The religious framework is simple:  In the Name 
of Allah The Merciful, they have slain the innocent. 
There can be no greater sin in any religion.
 
Think of it like this:  in a healthy office culture, 
political alliances and therefore office processes 
are organized by who is the friend of whom.  In an 
unhealthy office, these are organized by who is 
the enemy of whom.  The differences of outcome 
and network design are profound.

To people who think politics and warfare are a matter for decentralization,
now is the time to get in the loop.
