German Intelligence Knew That Christmas Market Terrorist Had Been Planning Attack For Almost a Year Before He Struck

Wilkommen, terroristen.

Germany's intelligence services knew Berlin Christmas market terrorist Anis Amri downloaded bomb making instructions on his phone nearly a year prior to a Dec. 2016 incident, German media reports.

German police were reportedly approached by an informant about Amri in Nov. 2015 and had his cell phone under surveillance when they learned of him downloading terror instruction manuals. Ten months prior to the attack German authorities also knew that Amri was using his cell phone to message Islamic State operatives in Libya...

German authorities rejected Amri's asylum application but did not deport him because the Tunisian government refused to confirm his identity. Amri was subsequently released, and allowed to remain unmolested in Berlin for months.

Compassion is not a suicide pact.
