Air France flight and terrorists

There are reports that two names on the terror watch list show up as passengers on the flight that crashed into the ocean. That may be so, but if the crash was terrorism where are the triumphant cries from whichever group managed to down a symbol of the decadent infidels? For that matter, why don't they claim responsibilty even if they didn't do it? I gotta tell you, even though I think the threat of Islamist terror is real and should be a major concern, they do kinda suck. I mean absent a few major successes they manage very little in the way of complicated attacks. I realize it only takes one big hit to keep them in the news, but I am fairly un-impressed with them over all.
