Someone in the French authorities is going to have to take responsibility and resign
A senior US official has confirmed to ABC News that Mohamed Merah, the 23-year-old suspect in three French terror attacks, was on the FBI's "no-fly" list, and said that French authorities would be aware that the US had placed Merah on the list as a terror risk.I would not be surprised if political correctness played a major role in this, and some officials are not only going to have to step down, they're also going to have to agree to be prosecuted for disastrous work in maintaining the public safety.
Just hours after a special forces raid in which Merah died, France's foreign minister said there were legitimate questions about how Merah was able to launch three attacks in which seven people died even though Merah had been on law enforcement's radar ever since a late 2011 trip to Pakistan.
"I can understand questions about whether there was a failure on the part of intelligence services," said Alain Juppe. "This should be looked into." A spokesman for Francois Holland, President Nicolas Sarkozy's chief rival in upcoming elections, called for an investigation into what he termed a "failure" by law enforcement.
Update: here's another article about this case on The American Thinker, and Family Security Matters has one too about how the monster's mother would not cooperate with authorities.
Update 2: here's another article on the Daily Caller (via The Jawa Report) about how political correctness is what leads to these kind of horrors. And here's a post on Jihad Watch about how the monster taped his murder of the 8-year-old girl.
Update 3: a teacher in Toulouse who called for memorializing the murderer is also going to have to answer for the abomination she thought of doing. Many of her students rightfully walked out.
