Did Terrorists Win?

Richard Engel after monitoring pro-jihadi chat rooms and sites yesterday reports that they were celebrating the shutdown of Boston, people terrified, massive amount of money spent and lost--they were calling this a great win.  Of course, many here questioned the over-reaction, too--and warned that it might inspire more such attacks, not fewer.   But Engel then ridiculously claims that folks celebrating the end of the crisis last night somehow sent message that the terrorism had no such effect but the jihadis will simply ignore that.  Of course, the cheers did not wipe out the terror, the costs, the all-day lockdown etc.   But he did add that the reaction abroad did seem to suggest the two brothers were simply "lone wolves."
