Police in London are saying that they have identified the attackers from Saturday night, and will release their names "as soon as operationally possible" . In other words, they have reason, probably good reason, not to release the names yet.

But what BBC calls “security sources in Dublin” have all but identified one of the attackers, by telling the media that he was from Morocco, lived in Dublin for some time and had obtained an Irish/EU identity card seemingly through being married to a Scottish woman.
(RTE is carrying this as their lead story)

After Manchester, we were told that the Brits were enraged by leaks of sensitive material which they had shared in good faith with their counterparts in the US. Has a similar leak from the Gardai now compromised this latest anti-terrorism operation?

There's other mutterings surrounding the identity of another one of the attackers as having appeared on the Jihadis next door documentary which is available on Netflix.

Seems to me the British police are hiding their identities for as long as possible because they are immigrants. They are a disgrace.

But did we not all know that on Saturday night?

I'm giving them (London Police) the benefit of the doubt here and assuming they have good reason for holding back the info at the moment

How do you know the three of them are immigrants? What is your source? Or are you just saying stuff which seems to you?

What would be the advantage of doing that ? I reckon they're not revealing in order to carry out raids on addresses , current and past, of the attackers. This now might involve a Dublin address as well.

The leaks only bothered the UK because it displayed their collaboration with the same people when it suited them.

Exactly.

But now it looks like some loose tongues in Dublin may have given the terrorist a tip off

These are all "Brits" who were on the "watchlist", they allowed them to travel to Libya and Syria when it suited them to put feet on the ground.

Election on Thursday. Don't want it to turn into a debate on immigration, borders etc.

They're hiding their identities in some cases to go after co-conspirators and because MI6, have been very naughty boys....


And Theresa was HS during the naughtiness and there's that small matter the election Thursday and no one wants to let the cat out of the bag and have a very angry Theresa back in No 10 and looking for vengeance.

Has there been a leak, yes there has. Will it compromise anything, time will tell or not.

Sky reporting he was married to a Scottish women, she will need to be located and spoken to, if it proves to be a shame wedding then perhaps there needs to be a look back over others. Sham weddings are a reality and a business.

Don't think they were all Brits, where did you get that?

Bingo, and this probably explains why the whole trend has been to avoid even discussing the problem.

It didn't suit the establishment for people to point out that politicised Islam had gone down the far right route and not the hippy dippy route.

Still who else is at fault. All of us for believing the lies the establishment told us.

Naughty because they have been caught playing with the fascists.
Mi6 and 5 don't do things for TR British people. They work for the state. Still, if Brits should oppose the Brits state policy then how far do we want them to go.
Should they also stop pretending that there isn't a problem with an organized group willing to kill not only on revenge but also to ensure Brits who are women and gays get their dues as prescribed.

If we're going to call out the Brit secret service and they should be then we can't stop pulling at the thread that says the bad guys.

What, exactly, is an Irish/EU identity card?

According to RTE

"British police discovered what is believed to be an EU identity card which indicates previous countries the person lived in."


Ireland presumably was one of these countries.
