The critical thing about confronting evil is to call it by its rightful name. But New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo decided to call alleged truck terrorist Sayfullo Saipov a “lone wolf.”

“All the evidence we have suggests that he was acting alone,” said Cuomo. “The so-called ‘Lone Wolf syndrome.’”

Lone wolf? That’s a dangerous rhetorical mistake, made by a worried politician trying to avoid reality.

Saipov allegedly used a rental truck as a weapon of mass destruction on Halloween, and when it was done there were eight dead and a dozen seriously injured. He planned the attack for several weeks, said John Miller, the New York Police Department’s deputy commissioner for counterterrorism.
