London attack a wake-up call for UK security services
The Epoch Times - 06/07/2017
Max Abrahms, an expert on terrorism and radical Islam at Northeastern University, said that counterterrorism services are often unfairly criticized. Terrorism is very difficult to counter for two main reasons, Abrahms said: terrorists are indiscriminate in their targets, and they are prepared to die.
However, he said the last two attacks in the U.K. “reflect poorly” on the security service, especially when it was already known that Butt supported ISIS and that Manchester terrorist Salman Abedi “was an open supporter of Salafist terrorist groups for at least five years.”
