Europe’s Most Wanted Man – Salah Abdeslam ‘Is Now In Syria’ Security Services Believe, After Evading Capture In Wake Of Paris Attacks
Tom Wyke, writes on the November 30, 2015 website of London’s TheDailyMailOnline, that “Europe’s most wanted man — Salah Abdeslam — has escaped to Syria,” citing intelligence sources close to the investigation of the Paris terrorist attacks. The French national, 26, has been on the run since taking part in the [recent] devastating Paris attacks that killed 130.” “Investigators are now working on the basis that it is likely that Abdeslam is now in Syria,” according to CNN. “Abdeslam was meant [supposed] to be the eighth suicide bomber; but, fled the city after taking part in gun attacks on several restaurants and cafes,” Mr. Wyke wrote. “A suicide vest thought to belong to Abdeslam, was found left in a [trash bin close to one of the murder scenes in Paris. Abdeslam was briefly stopped by police at the France/Belgium border — but, was allowed to pass. Officers failed to identify Abdeslam and his accomplice, Mohammed Abrini,” before entering Belgium,after the attack.”
Earlier today, various news outlets reported that Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the apparent ringleader of the Paris terrorist attack, had entered Paris some two months before French authorities originally thought. French security and intelligence officials were initially working on the assumption that Abaaoud was in Syria; and, had orchestrated the Paris terrorist attack from abroad. And, until Abaaoud’s remains were verified in the ruble of the Paris attack — French security and intelligence officials thought he was still operating from somewhere in Syria.
By now, Abdeslam has been given a new identity, has likely changed his appearance, and is being moved around and protected by a bodyguard of Islamic State lies and deception. I still believe that prosecuting Abu Bakr al-Bagdadi and his key henchmen for Crimes Against Humanity — would be a positive step in branding militant Islam in the same fashion that Nazism was branded by the Nuremberg War Crimes trials 70 years ago at the conclusion of WWII. That way, those that provide safe harbor and assistance to evade capture — can also be held accountable for aiding and abetting a convicted war criminal. V/R, RCP
