France: Jihad murderer was on “extremist watch list” but was deemed not a threat, girlfriend “known to security services”

Yet this savage was still free to murder four people and injure fifteen. What is the use of a watch list if the people on it aren’t actually being watched? These watch lists seem to be designed only to make the non-Muslim citizenry think that something is being done about jihad terror. But little to nothing is actually being done.

When are the French, and the rest of the free world, going to wake up?

“France attack: Lakdim’s girlfriend ‘known to security services,'” BBC, March 26, 2018:

The girlfriend of the man who carried out last week’s attack in south-west France was known to the security services, local media report.

A source close to the investigation told the AFP news agency the 18-year-old French woman, who is in custody, showed “signs of radicalisation”.

Four people were killed and 15 injured in the attack on 23 March.

The gunman, 25-year-old Redouane Lakdim, was on an extremist watch list but it was decided he was not a threat….

According to French-language radio station RMC, the attacker’s girlfriend is a convert to Islam who has been known to security services for at least a year. She has not been named but remains in police custody….

Lakdim, who was born in Morocco and became a French citizen in 2004, was a petty criminal before he was flagged as a potential security threat in 2014.

During the attack, he pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group and is said to have demanded the release of Salah Abdeslam, the most important surviving suspect in the 13 November 2015 attacks in Paris, which killed 130 people….
