Paris attacks inquiry finds multiple failings by French intelligence agencies

A French parliamentary investigation into last year’s terrorist attacks on Paris has identified multiple failings by France’s intelligence agencies.

The parliamentary commission was set up to assess the failure to prevent a series of attacks that killed a total of 147 people in 2015 – from January’s gun attacks on the Charlie Hebdo offices and a kosher grocery store to the coordinated gun and bomb attacks on 13 November outside the national sports stadium, at bars and restaurants and at a rock gig at the Bataclan concert hall.

The commission highlighted a “global failure” of French intelligence and recommended a total overhaul of the intelligence services and the creation of a single, US-style national counter-terrorism agency.

    The Euro politicians who refuse to have internment camps set up despite the intelligence agencies being swamped with muslim plotters of mass murder are the first ones who need to be “put away” for the duration.

    This is an immigration failure, not an intelligence failure.
