Not only that, but also, “police did not follow up when Salah used a picture of the ISIS flag as his social media profile picture.”
Why not? Would doing so have been “Islamophobic”?
“Belgian police missed numerous chances to unmask the ISIS terror cell before they carried out massacres in Paris and Brussels, says secret report,” by Julian Robinson, MailOnline, January 6, 2017 (thanks to David):
Belgian police missed multiple chances to unmask the ISIS terror cell before they carried out massacres in Paris and Brussels, a secret report has claimed.
Jihadists butchered 130 people in the French capital on November 2015 before extremists killed 32 in attacks on Brussels airport and Metro the following March.
A confidential report has revealed that police in Belgium had numerous opportunities to expose the terror network before they went on the rampage in the two capital cities.
The Wall Street Journal says it has seen a report by the Comite P watchdog agency which is looking into the work of Belgian police since the two massacres.
In one example, officers are said to have stopped a vehicle driven by one of the Paris attackers, Brahim Abdeslam – whose brother Salah was later captured – in 2015, and found him with a booklet about ‘parental consent for the Jihad’.
He was arrested for drug possession but, despite being on the terror watch list, was released after a short questioning.
Officers also failed to examine a USB drive concealed behind the car radio, the report claims, adding that an email address the suspect supplied firstname.lastname@example.org, was fake – another detail that went unnoticed.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the report also reveals that the Abdeslam brothers were linked to other suspects while police did not follow up when Salah used a picture of the ISIS flag as his social media profile picture….
