"Talking about a terrorist motive would be premature at the moment"
In the title:
"A group of US Marines foiled a potential terror attack on a French train "
Use it enough times in an article confirming or denying and even if it turns out to not be terrorist related, it will be terrorist related.
Terrorist, Terrorist, Terrorist, Terrorist, Terrorist, Terrorist,
Well given that he had an AK with 7 clips, was apparently heard loading it in the bathroom, and had to be subdued, I'd say its safe to start calling this a potential terrorist attack.
AH AK 47s are Russian therfore Russia was behind it, just like they downed MA 17 just because MA17 was hit with a Russian made missle. Gottem; red hand handed 100% evidence. Case closed.

Unfortunately, there are so many "known to intelligence services" they lack the resources to adequately monitor them all, all the time. Being "known" might just be that they are aware you've travelled to a particular place, or have mixed in certain circles, but that doesn't mean they have someone following you around all the time. In the UK, there are estimated to be thousands of potential sympathisers which means that MI5, with it's limited manpower, has to prioritise who gets all the attention.
