Brace yourself. The German authorities have admitted that the driver of the truck that killed 12 people and wounded dozens others at the Christmas Market in Berlin, may have been part of a Terrorist Cell. ISIS has already claimed responsibility for the attack.


From the Washington Times:

German Attorney General Peter Frank told reporters that a 23-year-old Pakistani asylum-seeker taken into custody following Monday night’s attack “may not have been the perpetrator or belong to the group of perpetrators” responsible.
Other security sources went further, telling Germany’s Die Welt newspaper that police believe they have arrested the wrong man. According to the Deutsche Welle, the nation’s public international broadcaster, a police chief told Die Welt that “the true perpetrator is still armed, at large and can cause fresh damage.”
Authorities say 12 people were killed and 48 wounded Monday night when a tractor-trailer truck plowed through a Christmas market in West Berlin.
Holger Münch, the head of Germany’s Criminal Police Agency, warned Tuesday that further attacks may be coming. In the aftermath of such an incident, “there’s always a heightened risk of significant further attacks,” he said.

At least they are being honest about the existence of terrorist cells, this attack has all the hallmarks of Nice. That isn’t a coincidence. ISIS has literally put out “How To” manuals on attacks with vehicles. Asking their followers for an increase in these cowardly acts.
