#1 However, the FBI has a problem with labeling it terrorism. He didn't have any children attending public schools here in the states.

#4 As I understand, in the UK, Akram's file was closed or he was taking off whatever list he was on. I wonder if that kept him from showing up further down the pipeline into the US.

#5 Since Illegals can show Arrest Warrants for TSA ID purposes, perhaps he showed his "Watchlist" documents to get to board a flight here? Makes as much sense

#7 Why he was probably taken off the watch list, per the Times of Israel:

The Times on Thursday said Akram had twice been referred to a British government program called Prevent, which aims to dissuade people seen as vulnerable to radicalization.

It cited sources as saying Akram was referred in 2016 and 2019 over “concerns about his anti-Western and conservative Islamic views.” But it was unclear whether he engaged with the voluntary scheme, the daily added.

#8 Thanks, tw!

a British government program called Prevent, which aims to dissuade people seen as vulnerable to radicalization.

Given the end game, I'm guessing there wasn't much dissuasion, despite forms being filled and boxes checked.

#9 You are very welcome, Steve S and Lord Garth. This is the stuff I really care about, mostly leaving the politics and the fun stuff to others.
