Totally Impossible to Prevent Berlin Attack Was Preventable

Point 1: Germany knew this terrorist and had him under surveillance.

Point 2: He had been flagged for deportation for lying on asylum applications multiple times.


Point 3: After Toulouse, no one thought to install barriers BEFORE people died?

The problem here is not lack of intelligence nor means to prevent an attack. The problem here is never ending intelligence gathering without any action on said intelligence.

Unused intelligence is worthless.

Amri was already known to German police for involvement in an ISIS cell, and had been under police surveillance. If Amri's involvement is confirmed, this would make the Berlin attack yet the most recent case of what I have termed "Known Wolf" terrorism and marking the eighth such incident this year.

As regular PJ Media readers would note, I first identified and termed the ongoing trend of "Known Wolf" terrorism - individuals committing terrorist acts who were already known to law enforcement and national security authorities - back in October 2014.

This year alone I've reported on "Known Wolf" incidents in Columbus, Ohio; Orlando, Florida; Normandy, France; Ontario, Canada; Strasbourg, France; Roanoke, Virginia; and New York/New Jersey.

I would note four of those seven cases in 2016 were here in the United States.

Update:


This is what Gitmo is for, I mean ISIS has declared war on Germany. Yet the Germans treated him with kid gloves. Don't ask Tunisia, Drop the SOB off the coast and let him swim south.

We don't need to close Gitmo, we need to fill it and get on with the firing squads. Because politically correct kid gloves won't beat blood thirsty Islamic terrorists.
