Little Early? This from Reuters on the Chen assassination attempt:
[The government of Taiwan] also ruled out political motivation for the assassination attempt on Chen while he was campaigning on Friday in his home town, the southern city of Tainan.

I'm not a law enforcement expert or anything, but don't you usually wait till you have a suspect till you start ruling out these kinds of things? Isn't this sort of jumping the gun?
