(NationalSentinel) Terrorism: Despite the fact that Western intelligence services spend enormous amounts of money – in the tens of billions, at least – each year to keep their respective populations safe, they don’t quite seem to actually prevent terrorist attacks, even when assailants are already known to intelligence agencies.
That was the case once more in London, where British-born Islamic terrorist Khalid Masood was known to MI5 as being a violent extremist, but somehow was allowed to continue living amongst British society – so he could eventually kill a number of them.
As reported by the UK’s The Sun:
Officials have now said the lone wolf maniac was inspired by “Islamic terrorism” and had been investigated for violent extremism by MI5 before he mowed down crowds on Westminster Bridge and stabbed cop Keith Palmer to death outside Parliament.
Theresa May told Parliament this morning: “What I can confirm is the man was British-born and that some years ago he was once investigated by MI5 in relation to concerns about violent extremism.”
She said he was a “peripheral” figure, adding: “The case is historic.
“He is not part of the current intelligence picture. There was no prior intelligence of his intent or the plot.”
She confirmed that his identity would be made public in due time.
ISIS has now claimed responsibility for the attack, publishing a statement and claiming the attacker as a “soldier of the Islamic State.”
Well, okay, but top-notch Western intelligence services don’t investigate “peripheral figures,” so Masood at some had to have demonstrated behavior that put him on MI5’s radar.

Granted, intelligence services haven’t figured out how to read minds (yet), but in each case of terrorism committed by ISIS operatives or wannabes, the perpetrators had previously been identified by intelligence has ‘persons of interest’ regarding potential terrorist ties. And in the age of ISIS-inspired global terrorism, why isn’t that enough to warrant more regular surveillance? How long did MI5 actually investigate Masood? We’ll probably never know.
What we do know is that more Westerners are now dead, thanks to the most violent religious extremism on the planet today. And still liberals insist we ignore the 900-pound gorilla in the room.
And indeed, liberalism is what killed those people in London, and others throughout Europe and the U.S., as British columnist Katie Hopkins notes:
London is a city so desperate to be seen as tolerant, no news of the injured was released. No clue about who was safe or not.
Liberals convince themselves multiculturalism works because we all die together, too.
An entire city of monkeys: see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. Blind. Deaf. And dumb.
The patriots of the rest of England versus the liberals in this city. The endless tolerance to those who harm us, (while the Home Office tries to shift the focus of public fear to white terror) — versus the millions like me who face the truth, with worried families and hopeless hearts, who feel the country sinking.
Reminds us of many, many people in the U.S. But by all means, let’s just keep letting in those who will never approve, like or assimilate with us.
