Security Analyst Paul Buchanan says the terrorists slipped through the cracks "and it's a failure of intelligence." He says the failure is in the lack of priority given to white supremacists. "What fell through the cracks were concerns white nationalists in this country would turn violent, even though they have a track record of violence," Mr Buchanan says. He says white supremacists in Christchurch have committed multiple acts of violence in the city over the years.
