And Obama said he wouldn’t have any problem keeping track of the jihadi bad boys just released to Qatar.
EX-MI6 CHIEF ADMITS IT’S ‘IMPOSSIBLE’ TO KEEP TRACK OF RETURNED JIHADISTS
Richard Barrett the former head of Counter-Terrorism at MI6 has warned that it is an “impossible task” to keep tabs on the hundreds of British jihadists who have been fighting in Syria. He says that ‘possibly up to 300 people have come back to the UK’ already and that it’s an “absolute nightmare” for security agencies trying to track them.
His concerns are echoed by Cressida Dick, head of specialist operations including counter-terrorism at the Metropolitan police. “I’m afraid I believe that we will be living with the consequences of Syria – from a terrorist point of view, let alone the world, geopolitical consequences – for many, many, many years to come”, she said, in an interview with the BBC’s The World This Weekend.
Last week it was reported that two British Muslims from Cardiff had travelled to Syria and created a video urging other Britons to join them at ISIS. Nasser Muthana, 20 and his brother Aseel released a video talking of hate and war. Their father is convinced that the two boys could not have funded the trip themselves and were instead subsidised by other radicals intent on recruiting more Muslims.
