Trump again pushes debunked claim on WWI-era general

The US president earlier condemned the attack, which saw a van drive through crowds in the popular tourist district Las Ramblas and cost the lives of at least 13 people and injured around 80 more.

The intelligence followed similar attacks using vehicles in several European cities, including Nice, Berlin, Stockholm and London. Police have arrested two suspects. He said the incident "has the hallmarks of what appears to be yet another terrorist attack".

Intelligence agencies have long warned that Catalonia was at high risk of an attack.

"The Moros were fighting for a lot of reasons, not just because they were Muslims", Lance Janda, a military historian at Cameron University, told PolitiFact.

"Heavy immigration - both legal and illegal - from North Africa (Morocco, Tunisia, and Algeria) and Southeast Asia (Pakistan and Bangladesh) has made this region a magnet for terrorist recruiters", wrote Eduardo Aguirre, who was then USA ambassador to Madrid in a cable published by Wikileaks.

"Homeland Security and law enforcement are on alert & closely watching for any sign of trouble", he wrote on Twitter. "Our borders are far tougher than ever before!" he said.

A fact-checking organisation that checks the claims of politicians stated Trump's story about General Pershing to be "ridiculous and unreal".

PlayStation's official Twitter account hacked
However, it seems like the latest PlayStation Twitter hack might have been done by some "gentlemen" instead of the usual culprits. The responsibility for the hack of PlayStation twitter account hack has been helping up by OurMine , a security hacker group.

"Study what General Pershing. did to terrorists when caught", Mr Trump said, referring to the discredited story. "There was no more Radical Islamic Terror for 35 years", Trump tweeted. According to Trump, Pershing dipped the bullets used to execute Muslim terrorists in pig blood.

"And he had his men load his rifles and he lined up the 50 people, and they shot 49 of those people", he continued. The survivor was told to go back and tell his people what happened.

It isn't in history books because it's false, as is the story that Pershing buried the bodies of Muslim fighters in graves with dead pigs.

"It was not pleasant to have to take such measures, but the prospect of going to hell instead of heaven sometimes deterred the would-be assassins", wrote Pershing. And he took the 50 terrorists, and he took 50 men and he dipped 50 bullets in pigs' blood - you heard that, right?

US President took to Twitter saying, "Radical Islamic Terrorism must be stopped by whatever means necessary!"

The president has been heavily criticized by human rights and civil liberties advocates for his stances on combating terrorism, including his support for the USA military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, his promotion of the use of torture in the interrogation of detainees, and his ban on immigrants from several predominantly Muslim countries.
