ISIL had been planting the infrastructure of terror in Europe for two years

NY Times:

How ISIS Built the Machinery of Terror Under Europe’s Gaze

Two years before the Paris and Brussels assaults, a special branch of the Islamic State was churning out smaller attacks that the authorities repeatedly discounted as isolated or random acts.
The Europeans discounted the attacks in much the same way that Obama has attempted to do so in this country.  Meanwhile, the cancer spread and was unleashed in large mass murder attacks as ISIL became under more pressure in the caliphate.  ISIL generally responds to pressure at home with attacks elsewhere to distract and stay relevant with its followers.  This infrastructure facilitated that response.
