An Afghan Taliban officer aligns with ISIS
Taliban counters French-led Western unity demo with pledge of allegiance to ISIS chief Al Baghdadi
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report January 12, 2015

Finding this culprit and establishing his (or her) ties to North Korea would give President Obama evidence of Pyongyang’s culpability. But the US is rightly walking on eggs, lest a frontal collision cause more damage than benefit.  All US systems, public and commercial, subsist on computers and internet links, whereas North Korea is less dependent and so less vulnerable to cyber punishment.

Brussels Jewish Museum attack
Thousands of al Qaeda terrorists are on the loose in US and Europe – under the radar of Western intelligence
DEBKAfile DEBKA Weekly June 3, 2014

When French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said, ”We’ve never faced a challenge on this scale,” he was referring to around 11,000 Islamist terrorists on a constant commute between the Middle East, North America and Europe primed for lethal action.
