France has a problem with its vetting process for Muslim job seekers
The story highlights the problem in determining when the "sudden jihad" syndrome will strike. It raises suspicions about the viability of the current vetting used by European and American law enforcement.
“Petitjean had no trouble getting through a police investigation and psychological evaluation,” a source told the paper.
“He was considered to be a hard-working, friendly young man who did not pose any danger to passengers or others using the airport. He got through the police investigation easily,” the source said.
The ISIS wannabe, who left the airport in April, was spotted by Turkish intelligence officials on June 10 as he tried to reach Syria to join the terror group.
He returned to France June 11 for reasons that remain unclear and was put on a terror watch list on June 29, authorities said.
