    2017.05.22 - Manchester Terrorist Attack; political fallout

    I know that there is a palpable political and idealogical undercurrent related to this and all terror attacks.

    In the interest of keeping such discussion off of the thread dedicated to this attack and its victims, I started this thread.

    (Mods, I will alert my post so that if it not okay, you may delete)

    Sharing this story- the nastiness is being directed at the wrong people, IMO.

    The pro-Trump Facebook page “Patriots for America USA” published a meme Monday of Grande and the words “I hate Americans. I hate America.” The caption reads, “Ariana Grande - Pro refugee, Muslim sympathizer, anti-Trump, anti-American, Women's March organizer and raging liberal is suddenly wishing she was back in the safety of the America she hates so much!” The post had amassed more than 50,000 reactions by Wednesday.

    Maybe he is right:

    After failing to thwart two terror attacks that have occurred in the U.K. so far this year – both of which were carried out by suspected jihadis who were known to U.K. authorities – intelligence agencies have identified 23,000 potential jihadis living in Britain, according to a report published in the Times of London on Saturday.

    The report emerged after U.K. Prime Minster Theresa May downgraded the terror threat to “severe,” after raising it “critical” on Tuesday in the aftermath of the attacks.

    Of this 'pool' of potential terrorists, 3,000 are suspected of posing an “imminent threat” and are being investigated accordingly, the Times reports. Meanwhile, the other 20,000 have been involved with past investigations and have been categorized as posing a “residual risk.”


    Both suspected Manchester attacker Salman Abedi and Westminster killer Khalid Masood were in a pool of “former subjects of interest” and were no longer the subject of surveillance efforts, the Times reported. Abedi, a 23-year-old whose parents immigrated to the U.K. from Libya, killed 22 kids, in addition to himself,...

    Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly on Sunday condemned intelligence leaks after the Manchester attack as "darn close to treason."

    SUSPECTED ISLAMIST ARE BEING PREVENTED FROM RETURNING TO THE UK FOR THE FIRST TIME

    The Guardian
    https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/...rge-amber-rudd

    Suspected Islamist terrorists are being prevented from returning to the UK for the first time, the home secretary has disclosed, as she warned that members of the Manchester bomber’s terror network could still be at large.

    The home secretary said Isis was trying to “weaponise” young Britons and defended the work of the UK’s security services following claims that warnings about Abedi were not followed up.

    The murderer had been a former “subject of interest” to MI5, but Rudd said: “The intelligence services are still collecting information about him and about the people around him. But I would not rush to conclusions, as you seem to be, that they have somehow missed something.”

    She added: “What this reminds us is the scale of the problem that we have, the enemy that we have, Daesh, that is trying to weaponise the young people in our society.”
