CNN Terror Analyst Paul Cruickshank was reporting live on Anderson Cooper’s “AC360” on Monday night as the Manchester Bombing’s details were unfolding when, despite the obvious, he suggested right-wingers might have committed the attack.
He made certain to add that right-wingers have been blaming Islamists for acts of terrorism, notably in Germany.
“It must also be noted that in recent months in Europe, there’s been a number of false flag plots where right wing have been trying to blame Islamists for terrorism,” Cruickshank noted, adding that “we have seen that in Germany in recent weeks.”
What right-wingers are running around killing children? None. Who are actually killing children routinely in the Middle East? Radical Islamic terrorists.
CNN wants you to believe the right wing is just as dangerous.
On Wednesday, two brothers and the father of the bomber were arrested, the father and the younger brother were caught in Tripoli. They were planning an attack there as well.
There have been several other arrests and they are looking for the bomb maker.
The younger son, Hashim Abedi, who was born in 1997, was arrested in Tripoli on Wednesday evening by the Libyan counter-terrorism force Rada on suspicion of links to the Islamic State, and was planning a new attack on the Libyan capital, a government spokesman told Reuters on Wednesday.
The father of the bomber was arrested in Tripoli on Wednesday, a Libyan security spokesman told The Associated Press. The father, Ramadan Abedi, had said the older brother of the bomber, Ismail, was arrested Tuesday.
The mother has fled to Libya but her sister is still in the UK. The mother has been described as very nice.
