Hmmm. So, on the one hand, the police are confident that Mohammed Merah was a lone wolf who exaggerated his ties to organized terror groups, while on the other hand, they swooped in to arrest, in Toulouse and several other cities, 20 members of the group Forsane Alizza, which they say wanted to bring the caliphate to France. No necessary connection, of course. It's good to know that the police are on the job, but it would also be nice to know how Merah accumulated a stockpile of weapons and €26 000 euros in cash while ostensibly under (loose) surveillance by the DCRI.
