More details are coming out about the amazing heroics of U.S. service members who thwarted a terrorist attack on a French train. Earlier they were reported to be both marines, but one was actually an Air Force member and the other was a National Guard member.
And we know more about the scumbag terrorist who says he’s really not a scumbag terrorist:
The suspect is a 26-year-old Moroccan, according to an official with police union Alliance, who spoke on French television.
He said nothing to officers after his arrest, a police source said.
The suspect, identified as a 26-year-old man of Moroccan origin known to Spanish authorities as a terrorism suspect, was being interrogated by French police in the Paris region. French media reported that he denied having terrorist aims, and merely intended to rob the passengers. But his arsenal —several guns, a sack of ammunition, a sharp blade —suggested otherwise.
Ah, got it. Oh wait a minute:
A Spanish anti-terrorist official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, revealed the 26-year-old Moroccan suspect had lived in Spain until last year, moved to France then travelled to Syria where he is believed to have trained with ISIS before returning to France.
French Interior Minister, Bernard Cazeneuve, said the suspect had been flagged by Spanish authorities last year for links to ISIS.
Oh you trained with ISIS, had enough ammunition to commit a mass slaughter, but you were just robbing the train. Sure, buddy.
Here’s a video of the Americans talking about the attack:
