New reports are coming out about the radical terrorist who drove a truck into a crowd in Nice, France — an act that killed 84 people.
Apparently, new information indicates Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel planned the attack for months prior to the horrific incident, with “support and accomplices” — which confirm our worst fears and suspicion that Bouhlel was not simply some isolated, mentally ill “lone wolf.”
According to CNN, The man who drove a truck into a crowd in Nice, France, killing 84 people, plotted his July 14 attack for months with “support and accomplices,” Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said Thursday.
Molins said authorities are investigating five suspects who are in custody on terror charges related to the attack that Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel carried out on Bastille Day, France’s main national holiday.
One suspect allegedly sent Bouhlel a Facebook message saying, “Load the truck with tons of iron and cut the brakes. I’ll look brother.”
Bouhlel, 31, drove a 20-ton truck through hundreds who had gathered to watch the Bastille Day fireworks on the Mediterranean city’s waterfront.
An analysis of cell phone and computer content — including a photo of last year’s Bastille Day fireworks event focused on the crowd — showed Bouhlel had been planning the assault since at least 2015, Moins said.
“The investigation underway since the night of July 14 has progressed and not only confirmed the murderous premeditated nature of Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel’s act but also established that he benefited from support and accomplices,” Molins said at a news conference.
French authorities had previously said six people were in custody in connection with the attacks.
One of the reasons this is so frightening is because it clearly points to the fact that these “lone wolf” terrorists we hear so much about are hardly acting on their own.
They almost always, in some capacity, have support and help from other radicals or whole terror groups, whether it’s direct planning or just simply inspiration.
This is one reason why it’s so dangerous to have such lax immigration policies like the ones we have now and a border that’s practically wide open. One radical is dangerous; a whole group is guaranteed trouble.
If we as a nation don’t want to end up like France and other places around Europe, constantly terrified of terror attacks, we need to take the initiative, seal up the border, stop refugees from coming from Syria, and wipe out ISIS with swift military action.
