Here’s a brief follow-up on the previous post from The Observer, who translated the article:
There are a couple of things worth pointing out in connection with the revelations presented in the article:
Assuming the the claims made in this article are true, did Høibø notify the PST about Breivik’s radicalism?
Did the SOS Rasisme and Tjen Folket representatives involved in the NDL in any way influence Breivik ideologically — i.e. fire him up with anti-government/anti-Muslim rhetoric, the very thing that the Left has claimed that the conservative community in Norway were responsible for? And has this been investigated by the PST?
Håvar Krane was egged on to make the infamous death threats against leading Norwegian politicians by the same left-wing agitators within the NDL who then secretly recorded it and leaked it to the press.
If the PST was made aware of Breivik, then why did they claim that Breivik flew under the radar during the court case? There are now three known incidents that should have made the alarm bells go off at the PST in regards to Breivik, and they are as follows:
1. A male person called the government office in early 2011 claiming in a very calm voice that he was going to shoot and kill young AUF members. 2. Breivik was apparently kicked out of the NDL because he was too radical, but the PST wasn’t notified by the infiltrator whose job it was to notify the PST of potential radical elements within the organization, and who kicked Breivik out of the organization because of his radicalism. 3. In Poland Breivik bought chemicals that were on the PST list of interest and which should have automatically triggered an investigation, but the PST failed to do so.
This doesn’t paint the PST in a very flattering light, and it does raise some very interesting questions about SOS Rasisme and Tjen Folket and their role in building up an organization that is now on the PST’s threat list.
