The ringleader of the London Bridge terror attack, a 27-year-old man of Pakistani origin, had once been filmed unfurling an ISIS flag in a documentary by British Channel 4.

The documentary’s subject matter? British jihadists.

That’s what British newspapers report today:

Anti-terror bosses today face tough questions over how the ex-London Underground, KFC and Topshop worker managed to slip through the net before carrying out Saturday night’s atrocity, killing seven people and injuring dozens others.

The 27-year-old manic, who Express.co.uk has decided not to name, was pictured lying dead wearing an Arsenal shirt after armed police gunned down him and two other terror thugs.

It is has now been revealed the home-grown jihadi was twice reported to anti-terror authorities after he was apparently brainwashed by watching extremist YouTube videos …

He even appeared in a Channel 4 documentary last year about British jihadis where he was filmed alongside two notorious preachers.

The documentary even shows him in an altercation with police after he had unfolded the ISIS flag.

You’d think that would be reason enough to investigate his ties and have 24/7 surveillance on him, but it was not. Authorities knew who he was and what beliefs he held but did absolutely nothing to protect society from him.

Yesterday it was reported that at least two individuals had contacted British authorities because they believed the man had radicalized and posed a serious danger to others. Those complaints, too, were simply ignored.

Read the dozens of articles PJ Media’s Patrick Poole has written on what he terms the “Known Wolf” problem.
