Seems odd because it is Wim I think.
I reckon this guy has been a lone nutter, and CystISIS waits the 24 - 48 hrs to claim, when they don't have a clue who the guy is, and want to vet him for PR purposes before they say he was " a Soldier of Islam" etc.
Found it curious that the Psychiatric stuff didn't come out in the media until after they had claimed him/it.
Are the authorities cluey enough to realise what the guy actually was (could find & haven't found any links to ISIS), and aware how IS "claiming" worked, .. to keep it under wraps until they had, so that an ISIS claimed "soldier" is then revealed to be a head case, thereby casting the inference that they are all "Mad" in the hope of discouraging others joining??
Reckon it's quite possible, .. it is afterall, first & foremost, a propaganda war.
Spot on re propaganda.
Isis are starting to feel the pinch on the ground in their "caliphate". They finally admitted Shishani was dead and militarily things havent gone well since the yanks suspect they shoved a missile down his throat 3 months ago.
The journo's who know how Isis has worked find this one a bit different. The claim was relatively late in coming for someone then bequeathed "soldier of Islam" title rather than "supporter of Isis". Apparently the difference in sobriquet is significant.
I'd be trying to bury any links to ISIS if i was the French, even if they exist. Paris attacks give all the justification needed for military action against Isis. As horrible as this one is, they dont need it for ramping up support. Go your hardest off the grid, but Try to deny the propaganda attempt associated with this one publicly. A bit like the hunt for an attention seeking serial killer, dont give them what they want on any level.
