U.S. Denies Jihadist Motivation for Paris Attacks

The man who attacked a Kosher grocery store in Paris, killing four hostages and a policewoman in violent support of the jihadis who attacked the office of Charlie Hebdo, declared allegiance to ISIL. In a YouTube video, he said, “What we are doing is completely legitimate.” With al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula allegedly funding and directing the attack on the Charlie Hebdo office, the Director General for MI5 (British intelligence) made a rare appearance to warn, “A group of core al-Qaida terrorists in Syria is planning mass casualty attacks against the West.” The Canadian Prime Minister also didn’t mince words about the threat of Muslims waging jihad against the West: “They have declared war on any country like ourselves that values freedom, openness and tolerance.” But the United States, the home of the free and land of the brave, is still waffling on whether the Paris attacks were perpetrated by jihadis. U.S. State Department Spokeswoman Marie Harf said, “First, I think, again, there are a lot of unknowns here. We’re certainly not jumping to conclusions.” Heaven forbid she call a spade a spade.
