Consider The Possibility
Peter Hitchens writes:
There is still no hard evidence that the killer Khalid Masood was motivated by politics or linked to Islamic State.
Nobody has yet proven that he was, as so many have been quick to assert, ‘radicalised’ in prison or anywhere else.
A former employer says he was an apolitical person who showed no interest in radical Islam.
Until hard evidence to the contrary emerges, can we please consider the possibility that he could just as easily have been crazy, probably as the result of years of drug abuse, like the Leytonstone Tube station knifeman or the Russell Square killer?
If this is so, we could actually do something about it by enforcing the drug laws again.
Whereas real terrorism will always take us by surprise.
