SHOCKING: What BRITISH AUTHORITIES KNEW About the Manchester Bomber
Salman Abedi, the 23-year-old suicide bomber who struck Ariana Grande’s concert, was already well-known to authorities.
As with many jihadis in recent years, the suspect had already raised eyebrows with British authorities.
Sadly, their dismissal of Abedi as a real threat is the reason 22 people were blown to bits.
Leftist simply don’t take Muslim terrorists seriously these days, because it’s not politically correct to do so. Their callous disregard for the obvious is becoming more and more dangerous.
We recently chronicled the escalation of Muslim attacks by decades, and only a fool would ignore the phenomenon. And Leftist are fools.

This is what happens when leftists call refugees harmless.
Still think Trump shouldn’t carefully vet every single one of them? Consider this.

The UK’s parliamentary elections are in just a few weeks, and undoubtedly Prime Minister May’s opposition will try to capitalize on last night’s security failure.
But has any major Western political party made the problem of “Known Wolf” terrorism an issue?
Back in March, after two “Known Wolf” terror attacks in only five days, I asked here how many more have to die before Western authorities begin to address the issue. The resounding answer has been: many more.
Sadly, I’ll have to continue updating the ever-growing list of “Known Wolf” terror attacks.
Abedi Slipped Through the Cracks:
As The Guardian explained:
Abedi was known to the security services but was not part of any active investigation or regarded as a high risk. He was viewed as a peripheral figure in much the same way as the Westminster attacker, Khalid Masood.
The police and security services are trying to establish whether he worked alone or was part of a wider network that helped him with the bomb. Although Islamic State has claimed responsibility, the police have found no evidence to support this.
Even before Abedi was named, several members of south Manchester’s Libyan community wondered whether the suicide bomber was one of their own: perhaps one of the young men who had fought in Libya during the 2011 revolution, some of whom came home traumatised and angry.
But none appear to have suspected that British-born Abedi – a slightly withdrawn, devout young man, always respectful to his elders – would become a mass murderer.
“Salman? I’m astonished by this,” one member of Manchester’s Libyan community told the Guardian. “He was such a quiet boy, always very respectful towards me. His brother Ismail is outgoing, but Salman was very quiet. He is such an unlikely person to have done this.”
Salman and his brother Ismail worshipped at Didsbury mosque, where their father, who is known as Abu Ismail within the community, is a well-known figure. “He used to do the five and call the adhan. He has an absolutely beautiful voice. And his boys learned the Qur’an by heart.
Once again we are confronted with seemingly upstanding people who are radicalized jihadists.
This man murdered 22 people and injured 59 others. And he did this AFTER authorities took a deep long look and decided Abedi was not a threat. How many such Muslims lurk among us?
Abedi traveled to Syria to be radicalized.
One would think that would send enough warning bells. However, in today’s PC world, that means authorities leave him alone, lest they be accused of profiling.
If you believe these failures only occur in Europe, think again. Twelve of the fourteen Islamic attacks that occurred during the Obama Administration were “known wolf” attacks.
The irony that in the post-911 era, we don’t monitor Muslims like Abedi more carefully. But then again, we were in the Era of Obama.
As former federal prosecutor and PJ Media columnist Andrew McCarthy noted last week, for years the Obama administration has pushed a narrative that Islamic terrorists operating in the U.S. were “lone wolves” — striking out of nowhere and without warning. But this simply was not true. In virtually every case, these “lone wolves” were already on law enforcement’s radar — and in some cases, had even been placed on terror watch-lists.
Wolves now encircle the hen house. In case you’re not sure, we are hens. And the refugees represent the wolves.
Leftists bring these terrorists into our midst, where we feed, house, and clothe them. America and the world will soon get enough wake-up calls to actually wake up.
