Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, President of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, told Fox News that the stabbing attack “had every hallmark of warnings we should have heeded, but the failures continue to repeat themselves.” Jasser warned that the West continues to repeat mistakes in combatting terrorism.

Britain’s prime minister, Boris Johnson, said it was a mistake to grant early release to the suspect, Usman Khan.
