She was said to be the evil terrorist who would rather blow herself up with her suicide vest than be caught by law enforcement. Dubbed “France’s First Female Suicide Bomber”, Hasna Aitboulahcen died on Nov. 17th, just days after the Nov. 13th Paris Attacks, when law enforcement came looking for her cousin Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the suspected mastermind. He was later killed in a shootout involving bullets and grenades.
Police later said she and her accomplices in the room with her were planning another terrorist attack and of course that story served to justify what happened to her. Try as they might, they never could cobble together a convincing narrative of her becoming “radicalized” to the point of wearing a suicide vest. And her story was quickly dropped down the memory hole.
In the end, they changed the story and said she did not blow herself up, but rather, one of her accomplices detonated his suicide vest, which triggered hers. With that, her story was quickly dropped down the memory hole.
But that doesn’t appear to be how Hasna Aitboulahcen died at the early age of 26.
A video posted by Youtuber “ron johnson” accurately dissects the footage that was made public of the explosion in the tiny little Paris apartment. He also includes an audio file purportedly of dialog taking place between the French RAID teams (their equivalent of our SWAT teams) and Hasna as she begs to be allowed to leave and simply “go home”. A voice, reportedly of French RAID officers, repeatedly demands they give up Abaaoud and she says over and over again that he wasn’t there.
The now famous video of the explosion that took her life has a very distinct sound to it. It’s a minor explosion just before a major one. Not even a full second in between them but you can clearly hear the two distinct sounds.
When I first heard it, I wondered what that was. It didn’t sound like a suicide vest to me.
“Ron Johnson” has figured out what it was…. a grenade launcher attachment on an assault rifle.
(Remember, the official story about what happened later to Abaaoud states he was killed in a shootout and his body torn to shreds with “grenades”)
Is it possible that the RAID officers thought they would find Abaaoud in the apartment with Hasna but instead found a young woman with her boyfriend? Is it also possible that rather than simply enter the dwelling and search for the suspect, RAID officers decided not to put themselves in harm’s way and instead lobbed a grenade into the room where the two of them were, later concocting the story of the suicide vests as cover?
The “ron johnson” video is below. Whatever you think they motive was, I think it’s pretty clear that what we all heard was a grenade launcher taking out 26-year-old Hasna Aitboulahcen. Good work ron.
