Totally Impossible to Prevent Berlin Attack Was Preventable

Point 1: Germany knew this terrorist and had him under surveillance.

Point 2: He had been flagged for deportation for lying on asylum applications multiple times.

Point 3: After Toulouse, no one thought to install barriers BEFORE people died?

The problem here is not lack of intelligence nor means to prevent an attack. The problem here is never ending intelligence gathering without any action on said intelligence.

Unused intelligence is worthless.

Amri was already known to German police for involvement in an ISIS cell, and had been under police surveillance. If Amri's involvement is confirmed, this would make the Berlin attack yet the most recent case of what I have termed "Known Wolf" terrorism and marking the eighth such incident this year.

As regular PJ Media readers would note, I first identified and termed the ongoing trend of "Known Wolf" terrorism - individuals committing terrorist acts who were already known to law enforcement and national security authorities - back in October 2014.

This year alone I've reported on "Known Wolf" incidents in Columbus, Ohio; Orlando, Florida; Normandy, France; Ontario, Canada; Strasbourg, France; Roanoke, Virginia; and New York/New Jersey.

I would note four of those seven cases in 2016 were here in the United States.


This is what Gitmo is for, I mean ISIS has declared war on Germany. Yet the Germans treated him with kid gloves. Don't ask Tunisia, Drop the SOB off the coast and let him swim south.

We don't need to close Gitmo, we need to fill it and get on with the firing squads. Because politically correct kid gloves won't beat blood thirsty Islamic terrorists.

1 .....and in other news, it looks like Ambassador Karlov's typical peace-loving peace-lover assassin may have been one of Recip Tayyip 'Horse Nuts' Erdogan's guards on the travel team.

UK Telegraph reporting ......

2 Maybe...It look like Angela Merkle and her party pretty much have the German Muslim vote sewed up next election....

3 Gather these folks and subdue them. Place them into a C130 with a destination of any Islamic country. Climb to FL 30. Place flight crew on oxygen, Depressurize cabin while acft flies toward ocean. After an hour, toss trash into the sea. Return to Base. Repeat as necessary. This is completely humane and will not traumatize crew or passengers.

5 Tunisia refused to take him back? As much as I hate to say it, I think Trump will run into the same problem trying to deport criminal illegals.

6 Seems like Germany is becoming another California.

7 Kalifornia; That's what Gitmo is for and Trump intends to use it.

8 Sacrificing the lives of your citizens on the altar of Political Correctness. When the citizens finally tire of it, you get President Trump. Will be interesting to see who succeeds Merkle since her regime is DOA!

9 Has Germany ever thought of flying over Tunisia and kicking this moron out without a parachute? Probably not - I bet they are afraid of being kicked over to a Nazi corner. I wouldn't.

10 Today this attitude can get you investigated by the government for "violent extremism" and they may use active measures against your web host. Talk like that might anger al-Qaeda and inspire acts of violence, don't you know. What about people who actually are al-Qaeda and are planning to kill us? Nobody will dare do anything to stop them. It's an instant career ender if the press whines about you oppressing Muslims.

11 I've got your "career ender" right here with me. On my rocking chair, on the front porch, waiting for all those jihadis that claim they are coming to kill me.

12 Europe seeing they are going to have this little street war with imported Islamist are just getting their people used to the carnage.
It is probably their way of preparing for Islamic rule and Sharia.
No body could be so stupid unless they actually meant for this to happen.

13 The issue with the countries not taking back citizens could be solved very easily. Simply inform those countries that they can no longer have citizens immigrate and that travel would be restricted.

14 Eliminateing Islam is not religious bigotry, it is a restoration of human rights to many many millions of people trapped by a culture of death and barbarity.

Let only Christian middle eastern refugees into Europe, make them PROVE their belief (I recall in Japan when (in 1600s) the Shoguns tried to stamp out Christianity and made the suspects stamp on a crucifix many refused even though it meant their death, and others being samurai went against their honorbound oaths to defy such an act.

The terrorists coming in are NOT Christians and the European people have to beat their politicians about their heads (and throw them out of office) to convince them that their recent acts of dangerous stupidity against their own constituents wont be tolerated.
