    Islamic State Claims Responsibility for Orlando Attack

    "Carried out by an Islamic State fighter"

    World | Sun Jun 12, 2016 2:59pm EDT



    According to Amaq News, a Syrian news agency with close ties to the Islamic State, the group has taken credit for the attack in Orlando, Florida.

    Islamic State's Amaq news agency said on Sunday that the Islamist militant group was responsible for the shooting that killed at least 50 people in a massacre at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

    "The armed attack that targeted a gay night club in the city of Orlando in the American state of Florida which left over 100 people dead or injured was carried out by an Islamic State fighter," Amaq said.

    Amaq News, a Syrian news agency with close ties to the Islamic State, says the group is responsible for the attack on an Orlando gay club, which has killed 50 people, and left 53 injured.

    LIVE UPDATES: Mass shooting at Orlando gay nightclub




    "The armed attack that targeted a gay night club in the city of Orlando in the American state of Florida which left over 100 people dead or injured was carried out by an Islamic State fighter," Amaq said.

    "That has not been confirmed. We'll have to see what those connections are once we get the details," said Florida Senator Bill Nelson.

    FBI have also stated Omar Mateen, had proclaimed his loyalty to Islamic State in a 911 call, and mentioned the Tsarnaev brothers, who bombed the Boston Marathon in 2013.

    The agency revealed that Mateen had been investigated in 2013, and 2014, over alleged social media threats and contacts with "a known suicide bomber", but that no charges had been brought forward, due to lack of evidence of any wrongdoing.

    Last month, the Islamic State spokesman urged Western-based jihadists to execute attacks during holy month of Ramadan, which is now ongoing, "to punish the Crusaders" in a widely-distributed audio tape.

    Mateen, a 29-year-old Muslim US citizen, who was brought up by a family of first-generation Afghan immigrants.

    Earlier, Mateen’s father, Mir Seddique, claimed the mass shooting, the worst in US history, had “nothing to do with religion,” and speculated that it was caused by his son’s dislike of public displays of homosexuality.

    You stupid liar. It had everything to do with Muslimism. Your son was reported by co-workers in 2013 and 2014 for terrorist threats, investigated by the FBI, twice, and the ball dropped. You need to leave our country and take your family with you. You are now persona non gratis in the United States.

    ISIS Fighter Behind Orlando Shooting: Report

    ISIS Fighter Behind Orlando Shooting: Report


    World |Agence France-Presse | Updated: June 13, 2016 01:45 IST


    Omar Mateen, an American citizen of Afghan descent, had pledged allegiance to the terrorist group ISIS.

    Beirut, Lebanon: Highlights


    1. Orlando shooting was carried out by a ISIS fighter, says report
    2. Gunman, Omar Mateen, had pledged allegiance to ISIS before the shooting
    3. 50 were killed,53 wounded in the worst mass shooting in US history


    A fighter from the ISIS group carried out Sunday's mass shooting inside a gay club in Orlando, Florida, the ISIS-linked news agency Amaq said, quoting an unidentified source.

    "The attack that targeted a nightclub for homosexuals in Orlando, Florida and that left more than 100 dead and wounded was carried out by an Islamic State fighter," it said in a terse statement quoting a "source".

    Amaq gave no further details.

    US media reported that the gunman -- widely identified as 29-year-old Omar Mateen, an American citizen of Afghan descent -- had pledged allegiance to the terrorist group ISIS.

    Fifty people were killed, in addition to the shooter, and 53 wounded in the worst mass shooting in US history, the mayor of Orlando Buddy Dyer said earlier on Sunday.

    US officials were probing whether the suspect had radical Islamic "leanings".

    US President Barack Obama said the FBI was investigating the killings "as an act of terrorism".

    So it sounds like he wasn't even on the Terrorist Watch List.

    According to the LA Times, Mateen "had once been on the Terrorist Watch List" but wasn't any more.

    Omar Mateen was taken off a terrorist watch list, but keeping him on it wouldn't have stopped him from buying guns

    Omar Mateen was placed on a terrorist watch list maintained by the FBI when its agents questioned him in 2013 and 2014 about potential ties to terrorism, according to U.S. law enforcement officials who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the case.

    He was subsequently removed from that database after the FBI closed its two investigations, one official said.

    In the first investigation, Mateen was questioned by FBI agents after they were told he had made inflammatory comments that co-workers worried were sympathetic to terrorists.

    The FBI agents determined that Mateen had not broken any laws and closed the investigation, a second official said.

    They questioned Mateen again the following year because agents had learned he had contact with an American who later died in a suicide bombing in Syria.

    Agents closed that investigation because they concluded the contacts with the suicide bomber had been minimal, an FBI official said.

    Even if Mateen were still on the terrorist watch list — known as the Terrorist Screening Database — the designation would not have precluded him from buying the semiautomatic pistol and assault-style rifle that he used in Sunday's massacre.

    Mateen bought two guns in the last 12 days from a gun store not far from his Florida home, federal officials said.

    The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives described the weapons as a “.223 caliber AR type rifle and a 9mm semiautomatic pistol.”

    — Del Quentin Wilber
    http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-...htmlstory.html

    Typical LA Times makes the big deal about him having the guns. There is no crime in having guns. The crime is using the guns to try and kill over 100 people. Whether he bought a gun legally or acquired one illegally is irrelevant. What is relevant is that you have a terrorist on a watch list and in custody twice, and you let him go and removed him from the watch list. Obviously he lied to the FBI and fooled them, twice.

    I smell a big fat rat in this mess. It's time for Congress to investigate this mess. Get Trey Gowdy on it, he'll get to the bottom of why a confirmed terrorist was on a Terrorist Watch List and removed, why despite 2 reports, 1 from co-workers and another from an association with a suicide bomber led not only to letting him go because he had apparently not broken any laws yet to removing him from the Terrorist Watch List, not that being on the Terrorist Watch List would have made any difference since they don't tail or track them because it requires 3 shifts and multiple vehicles.

    We're on our own folks. This government is not protecting US. It's just there counting bodies and doing post-mortem interviews.

    The news media has completely dropped the ball on this. They've been so busy sucking up to the wrong people, they're no longer reporters, they're agents of those who hate our country and representatives of those who want to weaken and destroy US.
