    I wish someone could explain to me why there are no mailboxes in airports even though there are trash cans. Oh, and toilets and vending machines.

    According to Stern magazine, Israeli intelligence passed information to German authorities about a planned terror bombing at the stadium in Hanover as early as Monday. The next day, November 17, more concrete information, including specific details of the planned attack, was gathered from the same source, indicating on an immediate threat.

    [...]

    According to German media, a car bomb was found near the stadium, disguised as an ambulance, and a suspect known to German police was arrested at the scene - but this information has not been confirmed.

    Leader of Paris Attacks Mingled With Police and Survivors at the Crime Scenes


    Abdelhamid Abaaoud, 29, who led the Paris attacks, returned to scenes of the shootings and the Bataclan concert hall while the siege was still going, says the city’s prosecutor, Francois Molins.

    The Paris prosecutor revealed that Abaaoud’s movements were pieced together using location data from the phone he used that night, reports Sky News.

    The ringleader, who died when police raided his hideout last week, mingled with onlookers outside the Bataclan concert hall where 89 people were killed. He is also thought to have returned to the restaurant and cafe terraces that were also attacked.

    OT (so don't flay me), but I remember the good old days when there were temporary lockers at airports. (And in railway stations, etc. -- there was a horrible Gary Coleman movie called something like "On the Right Track" where the pint-sized mirth-maker lived in such a locker...but I digress from what was already a digression.) Anyhow, I really do miss those lockers, as I travel a lot, and there are often times when I wish I could stow my carry-on gear during layovers.

    I don't really think it's a security issue, though -- I think that it's just that the lockers were not "earners".

    Mind you, in the same "good ol' days", I remember that it was pretty easy to just walk onto the tarmac, even in major airports, if one so wished. In hindsight, that made airplanes a very soft target.

    I'm old enough to remember those lockers. They were especially handy if you had to stay somewhere overnight but be back to catch a plane the next day or had enough time to leave the airport. I hate carrying luggage around the airport with me so I always pay the fee to check my bag.

    The thing about mailboxes is all those little gift shops sell postcards! I'm supposed to buy a postcard in Dallas and not mail it until I get home? Although they don't sell stamps either.

    Ismael Omar Mostefai (killed). Mostefai was the first of the Bataclan attackers to have been identified, thanks to a finger recovered at the scene of the crime.
    The 29-year-old had been flagged by French intelligence services in 2010 as a potential threat to “the security of the state” after becoming radicalised.
    Mostefai lived in the northern city of Chartres "until at least 2012", according to the local deputy mayor, Jean-Pierre Gorges. Between 2004 and 2010, he was convicted eight times for petty crimes (theft, driving without a permit and assault) but never for acts related to terrorism and he was never sent to prison.
    A native of Courcouronnes, just south of Paris, Mostefai visited Syria in the autumn of 2013, according to Le Monde.

    Bilal Hadfi (killed). The 20-year-old Frenchman failed to enter the stadium and blew himself up outside. Hadfi, who lived in Neder-over-Heembeek, a suburb of Brussels, was formally identified on Sunday. The Flemish newspaper "Het Laatste Nieuws" said that he could have been radicalised starting in the spring of 2014. He is also believed to have travelled to Syria, according to the Washington Post newspaper and several Belgian media outlets.

    Two brothers who took part in the Paris attacks that killed 130 and the suspected chief organiser were on a terror suspect watch list handed by Belgian intelligence to the mayor of Molenbeek a month ago, it emerged today, write Henry Samuel in Paris and Matthew Holehouse in Brussels.

    Ms Schepmans told the New York Times: “What was I supposed to do about them? It is not my job to track possible terrorists.” That, she added, was “the responsibility of the federal police”

    denied any knowledge of the terror plot, saying he thought his brothers were going “skiing”.

    Victim's family to boycott Hollande's Paris homage


    Snip

    As the family of François-Xavier Prévost, victim of this slaughter, we will not participate,” wrote Prévost. “We refuse the hand extended by the political representatives of France.”

    She then listed what she perceived to be the authorities’ errors of judgement and failures to prevent the attacks, that have been evoked by many in the aftermath of the November 13th bloodshed.

    “In France, it is possible to have a link with a terrorist network, to go to Syria and to come back freely," she said.

    Prévost said that the reason for her family's anger was the failure of the authorities to combat radicalism effectively. “Because in France, 89 mosques are listed as being radical... Because in France, a man who committed a murder in 2006, sentenced in 2008, was free in 2013,” she said, referring to Jawad Bendaoud, the man who rented an apartment in Saint-Denis to the terrorists.

    Prévost referred to the killings at satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and a Jewish supermarket in January, saying: “Nothing was done and ten months later the same men were able to start again, killing ten times as many people.”

    Interesting, on the aspect of policing:

    "He said policing in the United States changed two weeks ago with the Nov. 13 Paris attacks because everyday cops who respond to an active shooter now must be prepared to encounter attackers outfitted with bomb vests and be on guard for secondary explosions.

    "An everyday cop has to think like one of these troops going into a circumstance in Iraq or Syria," he said."
