Krauthammer: France terror attacks "the third stage of the jihadist war against us"

 

Charles Krauthammer told viewers Friday on “Special Report with Bret Baier” that this week’s terror attacks in France are “the third stage of the jihadist war against us.”

Krauthammer, a syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor, said the first stage “of course is 9/11. All of the attackers were from the Middle East. And then for the last year or two, we have seen the lone wolf attacks, usually home grown but fairly unstable.”

Now, he said, “it’s as if there’s a critical mass of these dissident jihadists in the West who are now in a position rather than act like the single guy in Australia or the single guys acting separately in Canada, as a group, as a cell, and as an organized wave. And that could be what we’re facing right now.”
