Amri Was Known To German Authorities

Which is prompting some to wonder if this is not a failure to connect the dots. Mr. Amri was the middle-east refugee who drove a truck into a Berlin crowd killing 12 and injuring over 50.

Merkel is under heavy pressure after welcoming a million refugees last year. The options that Germany is looking at includes deporting high-risk individuals back to their home countries. Federal elections are due between August and October 2017. And the Chancellor will be seeking a fourth term.

Instead of growing meet the stature of his predecessors, Trump uses a twisted logic to deny Muslims their fundamental right of movement into the US.
And now, his various moves are pointing to a logic of an all-out war: with China, with Mexico, with Iran...
