Le Fifth Column nouveau est arrivé! This morning, the triumvirate of Kmele Foster, Michael C. Moynihan, and myself chewed on the big story of the week, focusing on, among other things:

* The furious, occasionally baffling battle over the semantics of the phrase "radical Islam."

* The serial misidentification and demonization of the scariest looking of the murder weapons.

* Hillary Clinton's contention that "we cannot contain this threat. We must defeat it."

* Donald Trump's conspiracy talk.

* The extremely heavy lifting this week performed by the word about.

* What very many idiots wrote about the shooting.
