Taking Responsibility

When I was a kid, I’d hear stuff on television about terrorism, and the announcer would solemnly say, “Such-and-such group has claimed responsibility for the attack.” As a child, I was truly baffled by this. If you admitted to causing trouble, or making a mess, or smacking the paste out of your little sister, YOU GOT IN TROUBLE.  I mean really, who would admit to something huge like terrorism? If you admitted that you were the one who left a glass half-full of milk on the floor of the closet for several weeks, you were likely to get a spanking. How much MORE trouble would you get in if you admitted to blowing up a train station?
