Manchester Attack Colossal Failure to Act on Intelligence Tips
(Bumped Updated US Warned UK of Plot in January)

I'm so disgusted..... my apologies, I always feel bad then these things happen. That I can not stop it. Yes I realize that's unrealistic.

But its turning out that Salman Abedi was very stoppable. It just was not done.

Abedi's father Ramadan and younger brother Hashem were in custody in Libya last night after being arrested by counter-terror police a day after elder brother Ismail, 23, was detained in Manchester. Detectives said Hashem had links to ISIS and was planning to carry out a terror attack in Tripoli.

Hashem was accused of having known about his brother's murderous plans for more than a month, while it emerged his father had been a revolutionary fighter against Gaddafi who publicly voiced support for an Al Qaeda-linked group in Syria.

...A third relative, Abedi's older brother Ismail, was arrested in Manchester.
It is not known what his involvement, if any, was. He was once reported to a counter- terrorism unit after concerns were raised by members of the Muslim community.

A senior Whitehall source confirmed Salman Abedi was 'one of a larger pool of former subjects of interest whose risk remained subject to review' by the security service and its partners.

...Hashem (pictured after his arrest in Libya this evening) was 'aware of all the details' of his plans, Libyan security forces said

Yes indeed, removing Gaddafi sure has paid dividends. Who's project was that, oh yeah it was Hillary Clinton's project.

Sigh......

Sources suggest that authorities were informed of the danger posed by Abedi on at least five separate occasions in the five years prior to the attack on Monday night.
Update: I am one with The Force.


The source told The Mail on Sunday: 'In early 2017 the FBI told MI5 that Abedi belonged to a North African terror gang based in Manchester, which was looking for a political target in this country.

'The information came from the interception of his communications by US federal agents, who had been investigating Abedi since the middle of 2016, and from information unearthed in Libya, where his family was linked to terrorist groups.

'Following this US tip-off, Abedi and other members of the gang were scrutinised by MI5. It was thought at the time that Abedi was planning to assassinate a political figure.

The arrest count is up to 14. That's 14 people who should have already been off the street because of, you know, the war they are making on us.
