UK authorities knew who suicide bomber was

The identity of the Muslim suicide bomber in Manchester has been revealed:
Salman Abedi, the suicide bomber behind the deadly Manchester Arena bombing Monday night, was reportedly already known to security services but was not judged to be a threat – making Manchester the latest European city to be hit by a terror attack committed by someone known to authorities.

Authorities revealed the identity of the suspected suicide bomber Tuesday afternoon, hours after the Libyan origin British citizen was named by CBS News. [...]

The prime minister said police and security teams were working “at speed” to get the full picture of what happened, and to establish if Abedi was working by himself or as part of a wider group. Mrs. May had earlier said they believed they knew the identity of the perpetrator, but would not confirm his name.

The Evening Standard reported the bomber, who has not immediately been identified by authorities, “was known to security services but they did not believe he posed an immediate threat”. Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attack online.

If Abedi was indeed known to authorities, it would mark the latest in a number of terrorists who committed terrorist atrocities despite having been monitored by security services.
Besides the failure to employ administrative detention of any sort to prevent horrors like what he caused from happening, the authorities also have to shoulder blame for the terrible security at the arena:
A mother who was at the Ariana Grande concert with her daughter has criticised security checks carried out as they entered the venue.

Dawn Waddy was at the Manchester Arena with her daughter Holly and a friend when the explosion took place and said there should have been more security staff in the arena.

She said: "We walked through the doors when we had our tickets and they scan your tickets and we wasn't even checked.

"They never checked bags at all, I never saw them check anybody's bags."
Their disastrous security measures are exactly why this awful attack was able to take place.

Raheem Kassam at Breitbart also notes that this is the real war on women that just occurred.
