Couple more things being said on LBC
The 2 brothers who carried out the initial attack were known to authorities as terrorists. They have been involved in previous incidents.
The third guy, currently holed up in a kosher shop and holding hostages is not on any terrorist list. He has some connection to the brothers but is known to authorities as a thug who has been in jail for violent assaults and such like. But not regarded as a terrorist. I don't know if he is even Muslim.
Anyway its interesting because this happened in 911 where the terrorists were known to the authorities but continued to live in the community and were able to carry out an attack. makes you wonder what the point of these terror lists is if they can go and do things anyway.
Its also interesting in that the third guy's attacks can they be described as terrorist attacks if he is not a terrorist. Its just the work of an evil thug. What his motivation is I dont know. He seems to be calling for the release of the two brothers in exchange for his hostages. Is he a paid hand?
