Ten days before the bombings, a top Sri Lankan police official warned the security services that a radical Islamist group was planning suicide attacks against churches, but no action was taken against the group. It was unclear what other precautions, if any, the security agencies had taken in response to the threat warnings.

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said on Sunday that neither he nor his cabinet ministers had been informed of the warning, highlighting the power struggle between him and President Maithripala Sirisena, who is also the defense minister. Late last year, the feud led, for a time, to there being two officials claiming to be the rightful prime minister.

The apparent intelligence failure and the breakdown of communication within the government are likely to prompt political recriminations and attract attention in investigations into the attacks.

At a news conference on Monday, the health minister, Rajitha Senaratne, said there had been a warning as early as April 4, reiterating that the prime minister and his allies had been “completely blind on the situation.” He noted the lack of cooperation within the government, saying that when the prime minister attempted recently to call a security council meeting, members of the panel refused to attend.

An April 11 letter from the police official not only named the group believed to be planning an attack, National Thowheeth Jama’ath, but also named individual members, and even gave addresses where they could be found.
The information came from “foreign intelligence,” the letter said. It did not specify which country had supplied the intelligence, but Indian security officials said they had given it to their Sri Lankan counterparts as early as April 4.

“We must look into why adequate precautions were not taken,” Mr. Wickremesinghe said on Sunday.

They phrase it that way because their base doesn't enjoy seeing everything framed as a race/religious war for the soul of humanity.

The (R) base does, so it's fine for them so say "Muslims are killing Christians and it's time for us to fight back."

That's also true

But Rico is talking specifically about Dems not using the word "Christians" and instead saying "Easter worshipers"

Where is this guy's race?

https://www.nytimes.com/2015/06/18/u...-carolina.html

Dylann Roof's race isn't in the headline.

Was Tim McVeigh's race in the headline? The guy who shot up the Sikh temple in Oak Creek, WI...I don't remember his race being brought up at all, he was a 'lone wolf.'

White people are not the victims here.

This terrorist attack is unacceptable, as all are.

Thats probably because they were lone wolf attacks, this was a coordinated terror attack

But when a black man throws a 5-year-old white boy over the 3rd floor balcony in MOA.. no mention of race in the headlines.


Had it been the other way around, there'd be riots and "white man tried killing black child!! " coverage galore.





It is what it is.

Its hard not to notice the difference in how attacks are talked about / their prevention etc. based on the race/religion of perps. Leftists have scared everyone into not wanting to be called Islamophobes.

I think it's a bit more complicated than that. It's about not wanting to start a 'run' on Muslims and knowing how potentially volatile the situation is.

jfc.

How to avoid being called an islamophobe? Don't make Islamophobic statements.

Don't want to be called a racist? Don't make racist statements.

Don't want to be called a sexist? Don't make sexist statements.

Honestly this isn't hard.

You know damn well any criticism of religion takes an ugly turn when its Islam. Christianity = no problem, Judaism = no problem, Islam = death threats, actual terrorist attacks, silenced by the mob.

I wasn't speaking in terms of violent reprisal, but that you aren't going to get away with it without some backlash.

Can't agree with this.

Let's remember that in our public sphere, most of the "attacks on Christianity" are coming from people who were born & raised Christian themselves. Especially Catholics and Evangelicals.

Make anti-Jewish comments and you'll get crushed. Why? Thank a ****.

Anti-Islam comments will get you bashed by Dems and loved by the Fox News/MAGA crowd.

And Islam...right or wrong, it's too easy to reduce the debate to the decadent, wealthy, oppressive West vs. the oppressed, simple people of Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. That's why it takes on a racial tinge when Westerners make (in some cases legit) criticisms of Islamic society.

Christianity is the number one persecuted religion globally, and in non majority christian countries. I'm not taking about atheists taking jabs at Christians. I'm talking about actual people being killed or persecuted where they do not have protection under the law.

Eh not really. Notable figures make anti-semetic references all the time and they dont get a plethora death threats from the Jewish community in response.

Anti-Islam comments will get you bashed by Dems and loved by the Fox News/MAGA crowd.
Charlie Hebdo? Benghazi? Didn't Clinton blame the video for that attack? Like I said, literal terrorist attacks over satire or criticism.

The Jews were oppressed, historically, Muslims have been the oppressor.

You don't actually believe it was in response to a video, do you?
