TERRIBLE: MI5 Knew London Terrorist Was Known 'Extremist'...
More details have popped up since yesterday's attack went down in London (see BREAKING: Multiple Dead in London Terrorist Attack. Probably Not Amish...). Firstly, our thoughts and prayers are with the victims across the pond. They're not just victims of violence, but also limp noodled leadership. The latest development reveals British officials were already familiar with the terrorist fecal patty. Yet here we are.
Police have named the man thought to be responsible for the attack as Khalid Masood. Masood, 52, was born in Kent [Britain] and detectives believe he was most recently living in the West Midlands.
Scotland Yard said Masood had previous convictions for assaults, including possession of offensive weapons and public order offences.
So the police already had a few run-ins with this lad, but it gets worse. Apparently he'd previously been under investigation for "extremism" some years ago...
Theresa May revealed this morning that he had been on MI5's radar a number of years ago ... but was "not part of the current intelligence picture". [The] probe into the British citizen's links to violent jihadism was "historical" and he was deemed "peripheral".
ISIS have claimed responsibility for the attack, saying the killer was a "soldier of the Islamic state". Armed police stormed a flat above a takeaway in Birmingham last night and arrested three people. Five others have been detained in raids on six properties thought to be linked to [the] Westminster terrorist.
So he was an ISIS fanboy. Not so surprising, considering the similarities between the France "truck attack" and this all taking place on the one year anniversary of the Brussels bombing. Turns out those links to terrorism weren't so "historic" or "peripheral" after all. Something that seemed to slip by under the radar of British officials, despite having multiple interactions with him. Oops.
Yes, we're pulling zero punches when it comes to criticizing British leadership. Not sorry. For all the recent terror attacks over the past year alone, European leadership is culpable. Between love of open borders and multicultural political correctness, Europe has managed to make itself the top terrorism target of the west. The worst part? The European people want otherwise (see REPORT: Majority of Europeans WANT a "Travel Ban." Guess Why...). Alas, it has no bearing on their politicians. Clearly. But hey, it's only the people, not leadership whose been the victim of these attacks.
In this case, we know this gutter-dweller was born in Britain. It's possible his corroborators were also British-born. Yet he still immersed himself in a culture that people refuse to subject to proper vetting. #NotAllMuslims and such (read Dear Liberals: Political Correctness is Now Torturing and Killing People. Happy Now?). You know how Britain has been struggling to separate itself from the rest of terrorism-ridden Europe lately by way of Brexit? Every leftist and his dog didn't understand why. Well, consider this further evidence.
Behold, leftists. This is the tolerant utopia you created...
