On 22 March 2017 an attack occurred on Westminster Bridge, when a man drove into several pedestrians, killing two on Westminster Bridge.[1][2]

Perpetrator

The British-born lone nut, Khalid Masood,[3] was known to MI5 – 'but had been dismissed as a “peripheral figure”.'[4] He then reportedly fatally stabbed a police officer, PC Keith Palmer, before being shot dead by other officers.

Kevin Barrett suggested that the Westminster attack, exactly one year after the Mass murder in Brussels, might have been an Operation Gladio/B operation.[5] He questioned why when wielding only a knife, the perpetrator was shot dead, observing that this would avoid the need of a trial.

Timing

The attack happened at the same time as a debate on whether to ask Westminster for permission to hold a second referendum on Scottish independence. The debate was suspended as the attack unfolded, to be resumed on Tuesday 28 March, and the vote rescheduled for 14:20 hours.[6]
