“Henry became incensed when he heard of this outburst and is said to have uttered the fateful words “Will no one rid me of this turbulent priest!” Four of Henry’s knights, probably not the brightest of men, took this as a summons to action, and left for Canterbury immediately.”
Well the line should have a question mark at the end. It is not a direct order to murder, but that is what happened, vile stabbing assassination in the centre of the church.
Henry II failed to arrest the knights, advising them to flee to Scotland. It is likely special adviser for POTUS in the middle east, son in law Jared Kushner is right now promoting this as a solution to weasel the crown prince out of this jam.
