London Attacker Finally Named: Khalid Masood

Font Size:

Britain’s Channel 4 named the wrong one of #NotAllMuslims yesterday. Turns out that the London attacker was a different designated victim.

The Guardian:

Police have named the attacker as Khalid Masood…

Masood, 52, was born in Kent and detectives believe he was most recently living in the West Midlands…

Scotland Yard said Masood was not the subject of any current investigations and there was no prior intelligence about his intent to mount a terrorist attack.

I’m not sure if that’s meant to be a comfort. An Islamic terrorist who has lived in England his whole life and who took authorities completely by surprise.

Now that we’ve gotten that part settled, all you reporters can start filing your “Muslims Fear Backlash” pieces. And don’t forget to fall for every “Islamophobia” hoax you see. You have a duty to your audience.
