The stunning turnaround in the British bombing story. The first tweet that President Trump sent out after being informed of the London bombing hinted that British police knew who did it. Trump received criticism from UK politicians for being ‘unhelpful’. We wonder whether anyone will apologize. It would seem that police and British politicians knew all along.
As said yesterday, police had arrested an 18-year old in the port city of Dover, suspected of plotting and carrying out the attack on the metro of Parsons Green which wounded over 30 people.

In the afternoon, a house in Surrey was raided. A house where an older couple takes in refugee children.
Ms Penelope Jones, 71 years old, and her husband Ronald, 88 years old, have raised 268 foster children in the house over three decades and the last eight of those have been refugees from countries like Iraq and Afghanistan.
Whilst there has been no official confirmation, the British press has puzzled all the pieces together.
The teen who did it seems to be a 'problematic foster child' who was arrested two weeks ago already near where the attack took place.
He was a refugee taken in by a foster family who has taken in many children like him in the past.
The British press interviewed one of the neighbors of the elderly couple whose house was raided.
Ms. Serena Barber, 47 years old, has known the couple all her lives. She said: 'They have two boys at the moment, both are foreign. One is very quiet and polite, the other who is 18 is awful. I know about two weeks ago he was arrested by police at Parsons Green, for what I don't know and returned back to Penny and Ron. After that Penny said she was going to have to stop caring for him, she couldn't handle him.'
There has been no official word from police or British politicians on this development so far.
