Buzzsprout Episode 195 Did Norway’s security service drop the ball in the latest Oslo attack? Not necessarily
As we learn a little bit more about a shooting outside a bar in the Norwegian capital, Oslo, on June 25 we now know that the suspect, a man of Iranian Kurdish origin and believed to be an Islamist extremist, was on the radar of the Norwegian Police Intelligence Service (PST) as far back as 2015. If this is the case, why was he not monitored and prevented from shooting dozens of people, killing two? Borealis weighs in with what security intelligence services do with the information they collect with special emphasis on mental health cases.
