UCLA transfer has 25 points but only four rebounds as Hoyas drop opener to No. 19 Ducks at U.S. army base in South Korea.
The Boston Marathon bombings have ignited a debate in Washington and among terrorism analysts over how the wider threat facing the U.S. has evolved since the 9/11 attacks of 2001.
For a third straight day Wednesday, funeral processions rolled through a grieving Connecticut town trying to make sense of the massacre of 20 first-graders and six adults in an elementary school less than two weeks before Christmas.
"We just picked up the intensity and made plays to make up for the loss," Young said.
From an operational standpoint, the Boston case suggests that the core threat facing the U.S. has shifted from one of internationally financed and plotted mass carnage to something more akin to "lone-wolf type attacks that are less deadly but more difficult to disrupt," said Joseph Young, a professor at American University who specializes in the causes and consequences of terrorism.
