France should have let him go to Syria
There are also reports that one of the attackers was a local resident who was under electronic tag surveillance having been jailed in France for trying to travel to Syria in 2015. His bail terms allowed him to be unsupervised between 8.30am and 12.30pm – the attack happened between 9am and 11am.
They should have let him go to Syria where he would have died fighting and removed himself as a danger to French citizens, as well as saving a lot of money on surveillance which turned out not to be that effective.
I say that anyone who wants to travel to Syria should be given a free plane ticket, so long as they surrender their passport and any right to return.
