The FBI says it has viewed the July 4 shooting attack at the El Al ticket counter at Los Angeles International Airport as a possible terrorist incident “from day one.” An FBI spokesman said that while the agency refused to make this assessment public after the shooting, which killed two people, the focus within the agency has always been on terrorism as a possible motive for the attack and remains so.
