It has emerged that one of the four people murdered during the Westminster terror attack in London last week, 75-year-old Leslie Rhodes, used to be Winston Churchill's window cleaner.Oddly enough, Churchill had a decidedly contrarian view of terrorism.Because within hours of the attack, the U.K. government was quick to resurrect its perennial desire to implement a litany of heavy-handed, coercive measures to combat the threat posed by Islamist terror groups.It was claimed by Daesh (ISIS), who called Masood its "soldier".Would more armed police, or greater access to Masood's social media, have prevented the London attack?Of the 12 people arrested in the aftermath of the attack, only two remain in custody, while a third has been released on bail.At the risk of sounding callous, Masood's attack on Parliament succeeded only in generating publicity.It is worth remembering the Daesh executioner "Jihadi John," Londoner Mohammed Emwazi, was able to escape to Syria in 2012 despite being on an MI5 terror watch list, which prohibited him from leaving the U.K. Despite extensive so-called intrusive surveillance of Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale, both men slipped through the intelligence net and hacked to death an off-duty soldier, Lee Rigby, in broad daylight on a busy London street in 2013 .
