No word exactly who “preyed upon” and “radicalized” the man, who is white, but we can guess - it was British intelligence. If this seems like a stretch, consider the fact British intelligence sheltered Abu Qatada and his family... If we are to believe the Telegraph, “radicals” supposedly “brainwashed” Nicky Reilly “outside a fish and chip shop.”
