Once Aryan Skynet Goes Live It Doesn't Matter Who Pulled The Switch
LONDON — President Trump on Thursday denounced U.S. leaks about Britain’s investigation of the Manchester terrorist bombing as “deeply troubling” and asked the Justice Department and other agencies to launch a full investigation.
Leaks from the ongoing probe — including the publication of crime-scene photos in the New York Times and the naming of the suspected bomber by U.S. broadcasters — have provoked ire from British officials.
In response to the disclosures, British police investigating the Manchester attack took the highly unusual step of withholding information from U.S. agencies, which they say are responsible for the leaks. But by late Thursday evening, police said they had resumed intelligence sharing following “fresh assurances.”
Suicide bomber Salem Abedi grew up in south Manchester, which has been home to a string of extremists and terrorists in recent years, many with strong Libyan connections.
Security services were last night urgently investigating if Abedi, 22, whose parents came to the UK from Tripoli in the early 1990s, had links to fellow Libyan terrorist, Abdalraouf Abdallah and his brother Mohammed.
Abdalraouf, 23, was jailed for five and a half years in July last year after being convicted of trying to help other Manchester based jihadis to join Isil.
Among those he helped try to get to Syria was former RAF veteran, and Muslim convert Stephen Gray, who also grew up in the Moss Side area of Manchester.
It’s only been a few years since the Libyan dictator, Mumar Gadaffi, was overthrown by British, French, and American backed Libyan expatriates, many of whom worked rather openly in Manchester, traveling back and forth between the UK and Libya, facilitating the overthrow of Gadaffi with the official blessing of the UK government.
Last month the same network of terrorist planned the Manchester attacks, and the other day the same network of terrorist staged the attacks at London Bridge.
The fact that the identities of the Manchester attackers were “leaked” to the media by the US government caused an international diplomatic row between the UK and USA, only to be smoothed over by a personal visit and apology by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.
It’s getting harder and harder to figure out the line between the “official story” and the “conspiracy theories.”
