London Islamist Terrorists Were Known to Security Services

Yet Another, Astonishingly Similar Screwup

Once again, incredibly, the monsters were … known … to those charged with protecting a nation against atrocities of this kind.

The Fort Hood shooter was … known. The elder Boston Marathon bomber was … known. The Nigerian attackers were … known.

Where's the outrage?

DEBKAfile reports:

The extreme savagery of the killing in broad daylight on a busy London street, culminating in a beheading, recalled the fate of Western hostages at the hands of Al Qaeda’s Iraq commander Musab al-Zarqawi in the years between 2004 and 2006. His custom of beheading victims became a hallmark of al Qaeda savagery. 
What also stands out about this episode is that the jihadis did not run away, but waved their blood-stained hands in the faces of horrified passersby, boasting: “We swear by Almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you. The only reason we have done this is because Muslims are dying every day. The British soldier is an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth!”

EXTRA: Foreign Confidential correspondents report that Nigerian nationals without apparent legitimate means of support are certain to come under closer scrutiny by overseas security services in light of the London attack and the Islamist uprising and terror campaign in Nigeria. Even countries that have in the past felt relatively removed from Islamist terrorism, such as Japan and Taiwan, are likely to review the files of visiting and resident Nigerians, including seeming non-Muslims and actual non-Muslims or secular Muslims whose activities could be aiding and benefitting Islamist groups--e.g. Nigerian fraudsters, swindlers and drug dealers.
