And Saturday’s attack in London just got a whole lot worse.
According to Politico, Italian-Moroccan Youssef Zaghba, the third man named as a suspect in the attack, told police at Bolonga Airport last year that he was “going to be a terrorist” after he was stopped, with no luggage, because he looked “agitated”:

The Moroccan-Italian man who has been identified as the third London attacker told Italian authorities “I’m going to be a terrorist,” when he was stopped at Bologna Airport last year, an Italian security official told POLITICO.
Youssef Zaghba, 22, was the third man shot dead by police during Saturday’s terrorist attack in central London. He had been notified to British and Moroccan authorities by Italian intelligence when Italian police intercepted him on 15 March 2016 at Bologna Airport with a one-way ticket for Istanbul, two officials said on condition of anonymity.
He was stopped because he looked “agitated,” one source said. When questioned by police at the airport about the reasons for his journey, he replied, “I’m going to be a terrorist.” He was carrying no luggage.
What more do they need to arrest these people?!
British authorities reportedly did nothing with the tip:
The third terrorist Youssef Zaghba was reported to British authorities but yet again we did nothing.

Italian media is reporting that Zaghba was charged, but cleared, in 2016:
Third London Bridge terrorist named as Youssef Zaghba. He was known to British authorities, was arrested while traveling to Syria last year.
