Surprised? Belgian Government Knew Terror Attack Was Coming

On the surface, there really isn’t anything mysterious about Tuesday’s terrorist attack in Brussels. Belgium carried out a small bombing campaign against ISIS last year, and roughly 100 of their military personnel remain in the Middle East in advisory roles. Couple that with the fact that Belgium has a sizeable migrant population from the Middle East, and many of their urban neighborhoods have become no go zones for the authorities, and it becomes shocking that an attack like this didn’t happen sooner.

The country is so out of control, that it has become a breeding ground for Islamic terror groups who use the country as a staging area for future attacks against Europe. In fact, the assailants who committed the brutal terrorist attack in Paris last November were originally based in Belgium.

So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that a terrorist attack was attempted in this country, and it isn’t first time this has happened. The only thing that’s unique about it this time around, is the scale of the devastation. What is surprising however, is the fact that the Belgian government couldn’t prevent this attack. According to some sources like Haaretz, Belgian authorities should have known this was coming.

The Belgian security services, as well as other Western intelligence agencies, had advance and precise intelligence warnings regarding the terrorist attacks in Belgium on Tuesday, Haaretz has learned.

The security services knew, with a high degree of certainty, that attacks were planned in the very near future for the airport and, apparently, for the subway as well.

Despite the advance warning, the intelligence and security preparedness in Brussels, where most of the European Union agencies are located, was limited in its scope and insufficient for the severity and immediacy of the alert.

And that’s not all. Turkey’s President recently said something along similar lines.

Belgium had been notified of the terrorist links of one of the suicide bombers involved in the deadly Brussels attacks when he was deported from Turkey last year, according to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The Belgian citizen was detained in Turkey’s southeastern Gaziantep province, which borders Syria, in July of 2015, and was subsequently deported, Erdogan said.

“One of the attackers in Brussels is an individual we detained in Gaziantep in June 2015 and deported. We reported the deportation to the Belgian Embassy in Ankara on July 14, 2015, but he was later set free,” Erdogan said, as cited by Reuters.

“Belgium ignored our warning that this person is a foreign fighter,” he added.

Similar accusations were hurled at the Belgian government following the Paris terror attack. They had all the intel they needed to foil the terrorists, but completely bungled their counter-terror efforts. For many of you reading this, I’m sure alarm bells are ringing in your head. You may be wondering if a conspiracy of some kind is afoot. It almost seems too convenient for Belgium to repeatedly drop the ball on these attacks.

However, it’s just as likely that Belgian authorities are simply incompetent. That’s certainly what many U.S. intelligence officials believe.

News of Tuesday’s attack was met in some parts of Washington with resigned frustration.

“There was only so much we could do to help,” one official explained to The Daily Beast.

“Belgium has been stepping up the amount of people they’re devoting to intelligence and law enforcement but they’re playing catch-up and we’re seeing the terrible results of that today,” Rep. Adam Schiff, the senior Democrat on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said on MSNBC.

Indeed, an official said there were warnings as recent as this weekend.

A frustrated U.S. intelligence official bemoaned the state of the counterterrorism apparatus in Belgium and across Europe.

“Even with the EU in general, there’s an infiltration of jihadists that’s been happening for two decades. And now they’re just starting to work on this. When we have to contact these people or send our guys over to talk to them, we’re essentially talking with people who are—I’m just going to put it bluntly—children. They are not pro-active, they don’t know what’s going on. They’re in such denial. It’s such a frightening thing to admit their country is being taken over.”

So what do you think is going on? Is the Belgian government completely incompetent, or are they letting these attacks happen? Honestly, neither would surprise me at this point.

    No, both, because this comes from the imperial banana republic UssA whom runns the show, the fact that this happends despite intiale warnings, is Their peoblem, but the forces we talk about, the so called “radical islam” is the same merc force they have had ongoing for decades since Afganistan and Chetcnya.

    Some of them morphed into Al Q, and from this, in Africa and Levante, they have spread, but the Turks and Saudis know them well, the west whom for some years ago, armed and helped the “jihadists” to travel to Iraq/Turkien to then fight against Syria, for years the west have pimpe this narrative, for years people have gone down there to do that, and now, the same western MSM denies or dont even mention the wests incestios and the state that made the birth of them all possible, the UssA.

    I know this is pre planned, pre packed and executed acordingly, and the inability to handle this people, like the refugie issue show that this is indeed intended.
    I acuse them for murdering europa, we are been raped and plundered, the Tribe robbs ius and their rat pack rapes us.
    And stil people dont gett it.

    I stil dont belive a word of whatever soundbytes coming out of this “officials”, irrelevant and not even true.
    And, again, the unisone demand for all muslims to apologie, intresting, why dont the christian church apologize, murdering in the name of Yeshua Ben Youseph.
    The lord of truth and peace.

    The twisting of reality is not even shocking anymore, its only the deept they sink to, that stil holds some suprices.
    The film, Apocalyso Now, is infact from Belgian Congo, the atrocetys comitted is beyound belife, and dwarfs a lott of other shameless behavious of the old imperialistic forces, the same to day, all thoe names change, their agenda never does.
    World dominance.

    Turkey tries to play the good guy by saying that they warned Brussels about the terrorists. Meanwhile, they are buying stolen oil from ISIS to support their terrorist organization and shooting down Russian jets to protect the oil convoy.
    American intelligence officials also warned Brussels about the terrorists. They are another group of people who claim to be fighting terrorism but are sending money and weapons to ISIS to support their proxy war efforts, and they are blowing up abandoned buildings and empty lots and wasting munitions just so they can say that they are making progress against ISIS and that they are contained and almost defeated and bla bla bla.
    This whole situation is completely absurd. It’s so obvious that they are all involved in supporting ISIS and allowing these terrorist attacks to continue unabated. And only the most dimwitted imbeciles actually believe the bullshit coming from the MSM and the liars in Washington. Not only are they supporting ISIS and the other terrorists but they are giving them the orders for when and where and how to carry out these terrorist attacks.
