Thirty-two hours of fame: how the strange story of Mohamed Merah does not add up | End the Lie %u2013 Independent News

The lone avenging angel of death aura surrounding Mohamed Merah is beginning to wear thin, even in the French mainstream media. It is extremely doubtful if Merah had anything to do with the tragic murders of the Jewish rabbi, his two children and another small girl, as well as the attacks on the off-duty paratroopers with North African and Caribbean backgrounds. The man who tossed a really big spanner in the works is the retired former director of DCRI (La Direction centrale du renseignement intérieur, the French internal counter-espionage agency). M. Yves Bonnet informed the main daily paper in Toulouse, Depeche de Midi, “He [Merah] was known to the DCRI. Not especially because he was an Islamist, but because he had a correspondent in domestic intelligence.” And then he added for good measure, “When you have a correspondent, it’s not completely innocent. This is not trivial.” Correspondent is spook–speak for handler.
