Did the FBI cover up the fact the motive behind the Orlando terrorist’s attack was retaliation for a drone strike in Iraq?
The FBI is on quite a roll: first; after listing all the reasons why Hillary Clinton should be charged for her actions in the email scandal James Comey decided not to seek prosecution and now we are learning the FBI may have covered up the motive of the Orlando night club shooting terrorist.
The FBI was reluctant to release the transcripts of the calls Omar Mateen made during the shooting, supposedly out of respect for the victims’ families, before finally relenting and releasing a partial transcript. I have always found it odd the FBI would not release the entire transcript because it appeared as if the agency was trying to hide something.
The Orlando Police Department has now released the full transcript and it is interesting to note what was in it that the FBI decided the American people did not need to know. Here is more:
The domestic terrorist behind the Orlando nightclub massacre was motivated by a Pentagon drone strike in Iraq a month before the shooting, according to police transcripts made public last week.
Conversations between Omar Mateen and an Orlando police negotiator on June 12 were kept secret by FBI and local police until Friday. The secrecy contributed to misleading media accounts of the terrorist’s motives in the days after the killings.
During an exchange in the early morning hours of June 12, an Orlando Police Department negotiator identified only as “Andy” asked Mateen, who was speaking by cell phone from inside the club, to tell him what was going on.
“Yo, the air strike that killed Abu Wahid a few weeks ago… that’s what triggered it, okay?” said Mateen, who earlier in the conversation identified himself as a follower the Islamic State terror group.
“They should have not bombed and killed Abu Wahid,” the former security guard declared. “Do your fucking homework and figure out who Abu Wahid is, okay?”
Additionally, Mateen praised one of the bombers of the 2013 Boston Marathon, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, and another domestic terrorist whose name was transcribed as unintelligible in the released transcript.
At other points, Mateen told the negotiator that the United States needed to stop all bombing in Iraq and Syria.
In the aftermath of the shooting the American people were told not to jump to conclusions about the motivation for the attacks because it was too early to determine what drove Omar Mateen to such a deplorable act. However we now know that the motive was known all along and the FBI, and presumably the Obama regime, decided to cover it up because it did not fit the narrative. It is pretty clear at this point that everybody involved in the investigation knew from the beginning what this attack was all about and decided to keep it from the American people because, after all, ISIS is just a JV team and Barack Obama has made America safer…
