ISIS and Al Qaeda celebrate the European security breach they patiently planned for since 9/11. With the widening gap and rapidly growing stream, the Resources of Counter Terrorism Units and Intelligence Services are exhausted!
Tip of the Iceberg!
We are aware of terrorist (and criminals) among the refugee streams and of hundreds we do know in which groups they hide, their ID and intentions. But as planned and expected there are justtoo many unidentified, posing as refugees and current identification efforts are effectively frustrated by defensive group behavior.
Threats Converge With Refugee Streams
Refugees and immigrants are NOT a threat to national securitybut rather a long term natural, economic, social and humanitarian necessity. Today about 80% of global migrants end up in the developing world.
'Motivation by events' is a powerful instrument by which also ISIS bridges continents and inspires masses through social media. During an AML investigation in 2009 we discovered thata 'movement' was developed in cooperation with Al Qaeda controlled ex-patsin Europe and in 2013 we learned that movement was to be reinforced by veterans of the Jihad that were or still are fighting in the Middle East.
Organized Crime taking care of refugees "all the way"
Terror movements of Al Qaeda and ISIS celebrate the European security breach that they patiently planned for.
UpdateSeptember 16 2015:
Clear and Present Danger
In the years after 2003 everyone that ever visited a possible suspect meeting or mosque in western Europe (eventually all of the EU) was identified and profiled for extremism, possible radicalization or connection to terror or transnational crime.
Monitoring by the national CT units, the NSA and Echelon made it near impossible for those identified to be actively involved with terrorism or support of it (anywhere in the world), without the intelligence services knowing about it!
Most of the recent new arrivals from Afghanistan, the Middle East (Syria, Iraq, Palestinian refugee camps, Iran) and Africa are NOT identified or profiled.A clear and present danger.
A compassionate security breach
Recent refugee streams went in to the hart of Europe before being registered and 'identified' and some unidentified travelers never reach(ed) a modern station or a refugee care center with a proper set of security resources.
Those stay of the grid. Some have bailed from transport when trains were stopped in the middle of nowhere for 'security' reasons, some never entered any bus, train or registered at an official welcoming facility. Some accepted a ride from one of the thousands of 'good will' (?) citizens who went to welcome and pick up refugees with their own cars.
