Why did they let him go? On-the-run Paris terrorist at centre of international manhunt was stopped and QUESTIONED by French police at the border as he fled to Belgium in wake of attacks

French detectives questioned one of the jihadis behind Friday’s terror attacks as he crossed the Belgian border and let him go after he showed them his ID card.

Officers pulled over Salah Abdelsam on Saturday morning on the A2 motorway between Paris and Brussels in a hired car used in the attacks.

Detectives soon discovered their blunder when they discovered that Abdeslam had rented VW Polo abandoned near the scene of the massacre inside the Bataclan theatre. However, by the time they alerted Belgian authorities, the jihadi had abandoned the car in the jihadi stronghold of Molenbeek, Brussels and disappeared.

An international manhunt has been launched.

    Criminal incompetence! And why is there a jihadist stronghold in Brussels? Instead of dropping bombs on Syria why don’t they send in the police or military to clean that up? What’s becoming evident is that the French ‘authorities’ are a fucking joke!

    I guess I should have figured that out before.

    • These people are just the limit!

      The islamists who shot up Charlie Hebdo acquired their weapons in Brussels. It could be time to look at the belgians and figure out why they are not just a safe haven but also an armaments supplier

        They’re more French than the French are.

      The jihadist stronghold in Brussels is better known as the EU headquarters.

    Why Did They Let Him Go?
    …because it’s 2015!
    (To coin a phrase.)

      They let him go out of habit.
