Can Attacks Like London Bridge Be Stopped? http://thebea.st/2rzSf7h?source=twitter&via=mobile … via @thedailybeast @csdickey
1. I'm waiting for my flight to take off to London to cover the atrocity there. It's been more than 15 hrs since the attack & no claim yet
2. Instead of London, ISIS' Nashir channel - one of its official outlets - is posting news about Aleppo:
3. After every attack ppl assume ISIS "will claim anything." I want you to notice what's happening. Yesterday Theresa May called this terror
4. So why didn't IS claim it yesterday? They had every reason if their claims r purely opportunistic. Yet Nashir was posting unrelated stuff
5. We see this after every attack they claim: It often takes up to a day. What's happening? Why wait? We don't know for sure.
6. But opportunistic is not right term. They are online just as we are - & yet they're waiting*. Why? There is a process we don't understand
7. What Nashir did do yesterday is publish this poster, specifically calling for truck attacks during Ramadan:
