There’s good news and bad news in the twin terrorist outrages of the horrific running over and hacking to death of a British soldier and the Boston Marathon bombings. The good: Intelligence agencies had some of these young terrorists on their radar. The bad news: Having them on the radar did little good since the murderers still successfully completed their planned butchery.
Woolwich, a district in South East London, was recently the scene for a new kind of brutal terrorist act when Michael Adebolajo, 28, and Michael Adebowale, 22, reportedly Muslims of Nigerian descent, ran their vehicle over off-duty British soldier Lee Rigby, 25. They then proceeded to jump out and hack him to death in broad daylight with meat cleavers.
