France says foiled September 11-inspired attack

Source: Reuters

PARIS (Reuters) - France's interior minister said on Thursday that intelligence services had arrested a man for planning an attack inspired by plane attacks on the World Trade Center in New York in Sept. 2001.

France has for several years grappled with how to respond to both homegrown jihadists and foreign militants following a series of attacks across the country. French officials say the threat of attacks remains very high.

On Oct. 3, an IT specialist with suspected Islamist sympathies, who had a security clearance, killed three officers and one civilian employee before he was shot dead by another police officer.

"Just before (that attack) there was a 60th attempted attack since 2013," Christophe Castaner told France 2 television.

1. Now that Trump and Republicans have clearly demonstrated that there is no loyalty to allies,

will European countries come to our defense in case of an attack? Why should they? Trump has done nothing but denigrate them and work with Putin to undermine their governments and their economic security. Trump plainly said that the ISIS terrorists who escaped or were freed by Turkey should just go back to their countries in Europe. Trump doesn’t care whether they blow up people there. Our country is in sad shape now. Moscow Mitch has the power to rectify the situation, but he refuses. How can anyone with half a brain still support this moron!
