So who is really our enemy?

Reader comment on item: Denying Islam's Role in Terror: Explaining the Denial

Great article but notice this exchange between Lamar Smith and Mr Holder

Smith: But was radical Islam one of them?

Holder: There are a variety of reasons why people do things. Some of them are potentially religious..

What is amazing about this exchange is that at last Holder admits that some of these "things" (read this as terrorism) done by those "people" (read this as Muslim radicals) are "potentially religious" (read this as inspired by doctrines in Islam)

I read this as Mr Holder is saying that some of these atrocities are attributed to doctrines of violence and war in Islam or am I missing something?
