    What we know about the driver:

    CNN reported:

    A day after a terrorist mowed down dozens of people celebrating Bastille Day in the coastal French city of Nice, investigators dug into the life of the man they say was the killer: A 31-year-old delivery driver and Nice resident who was born in Tunisia.

    Authorities said Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel drove a rented, refrigerated truck weighing about 20 tons into crowds along a roughly 2-kilometer stretch of Promenade des Anglais Thursday night, killing 84 people — including 10 children and adolescents — and injuring 202 others.

    The attack ended when police shot into the truck, killing Bouhlel, French prosecutor François Molins said Friday.
    Of the injured, 52 were in critical condition, and 25 were in a coma Friday, Molins said; French President Francois Hollande described the most seriously injured as being “between life and death.”

    Staff at the Lenval Hospital in Nice said 28 children remained hospitalized.

    On Friday, authorities began searching an apartment building where Bouhlel apparently lived, and Molins said Bouhlel’s ex-wife had been detained Friday morning.
    No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, and authorities did not release information about a motive. But Molins said the attack fits with calls that “terrorist organizations regularly give out on their videos and elsewhere.”

    Bouhlel was known to police because of allegations of threats, violence and thefts over the last six years, and he was given a suspended six-month prison sentence this year after being convicted of violence with a weapon, Molins said.

    But he was “entirely unknown by the intelligence services, whether nationally or locally,” Molins said.

    “He had never been the subject of any kind of file or indication of radicalization,” Molin said.

    Why did they have to kill him? Couldn’t they have just found him a job?

    Oh, wait…he had a job. Somebody ask Marie Harf what happened.

    EXCLUSIVE: France ‘Suppressed Reports of Gruesome Torture’ at Bataclan Massacre. Remember Bataclan was a Jewish owned theater.

    “According to this testimony, Wahhabist killers reportedly gouged out eyes, castrated victims, and shoved their testicles in their mouths. They may also have disemboweled some poor souls. Women were reportedly stabbed in the genitals – and the torture was, victims told police, filmed for Daesh or Islamic State propaganda. For that reason, medics did not release the bodies of torture victims to the families, investigators said.

    But prosecutors at the hearing claimed these reports of torture were “a rumor” on the grounds that sharp knives were not found at the scene. They also claimed that maybe shrapnel had caused the injuries.”

    Remember the 2008 Mumbai attacks. Most people only remember the attack on the hotel. But the Islamic radicals also attacked a Jewish Center. They tortured the people in the Jewish center almost the same way as those tortured at the Bataclan.

    I don’t recall ISIS being around in 2008.

    It’s about time someone said this:

    “Gingrich concluded, “I am sick and tired of being told the wealthiest, most powerful civilization in history, all of Western civilization, is helpless in the face of a group of medieval barbarians who, for example, recently burned 20 young women to death, burned them to death, because they wouldn’t have sex with them. A group which beheaded recently in the Philippines two Canadian businessmen, and we’re told to be reasonable, to be passive, to not judge. I just want to tell you tonight, everybody who watches this video, this is the fault of Western elites who lack the guts to do what is right, to do what is necessary, and to tell us the truth, and that starts with Barack Obama.”

    He’s right. Our “leaders” are pathetic.
