ASIO boss Duncan Lewis last month: “I have absolutely no evidence to suggest there is a connection between refugees and terrorism.”
The Somali killer behind the Brighton siege last night: “This is for al-Qaeda.”
His identity: “Khayre was also born in Mogadishu, in 1987, and came to Australia in 1994 via a Kenyan refugee camp.”
His background: “Khayre was charged and later acquitted over a terror plot to launch a suicide attack against Sydney’s Holsworthy army barracks in 2009.“
How did such a numbskull get to be head of ASIO? I thought some sort of intelligence would be one of the requirements for the job.
