The Latest on Manchester bombing

According to CBS News, the suicide bomber at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, was 23-year-old, British-born Salman Abedi. He was known to British authorities and still nothing was done.

As usual, the ISIS claimed responsibility for Abedi's attack.

The horrific and cowardly attack left 22 people dead, including children, the youngest being merely 8-years-old. 

Abedi's neighbors revealed that weeks before the bombing, he was exhibiting "strange behavior," saying that he was "chanting Islamic prayers loudly in the street" outside his home in the south of the city. 

That should have been the first clue to those who were allegedly "watching" him.

ISIS claimed responsibility this morning and threatened more attacks. So what's new? They always claim responsibility and they always threaten more attacks. They said "one of the caliphate's soldiers placed bombs within a gathering of the Crusaders."

They obviously see this as a religious war, but we still pretend they have misinterpreted Islam. 

Authorities are attempting to determine if Abedi was radicalized in the last few years, and if he acted along or was part of a larger terror cell. Now that he has been identified, this will be somewhat easier.

Apparently, police have raided Abedi's home in Elsmore Road, Fallowfield, where a controlled explosion took place. A neighbor, Lina Ahmed, 21, said she heard him chanting Islamic prayers at the home a few weeks prior to committing the jihad attack.

She also told MailOnline: "They are a Libyan family and they have been acting strangely. A couple of months ago he [Salman] was chanting the first kalma [Islamic prayer] in Arabic very loudly in the street.

"He was saying "There is only one God and the prophet Mohammed is his messenger."

Forensics found a booklet in his home titled "Know Your Chemicals."

And while the PC crowd keeps saying that these terrorist acts are not 'a perversion of Islam' it seems the more religious a young Muslim becomes, the more likely it is he will become an "evil loser."
