The French Get Their Man




Chalk one up for Inspector Clouseau. French police have arrested the man responsible for the stabbing of a French soldier last week week. Seems the guy is a recent convert to Islam.

As to possible motive....

"Alexandre was known to investigators before the stabbing, Mr. Valls said. He urged caution and said, “I cannot talk about radical Islam.” Investigators wanted to know more about the suspect’s motivation, background and family environment, Mr. Valls said."

That's OK, Mr Walls, we'll just have to figure it out for ourselves.

Recent converts are always the worse, not unlike ex-smokers.
