Omar Mateen – Islamic Terrorist
Details on the incident in Orlando where Omar Mateen shot up a gay night club called Pulse are still emerging. But the shooter Omar Mateen is dead along with at least 50 of his victims.
At about 2 am Sunday morning Omar Mateen began his killing spree. The worst mass murder in US history. He was heard yelling Allahu Akbar during the attack. And professed his allegiance to ISIS during and before the massacre.
A resident of Port St.Lucie, Florida, about an hour and half away from the scene of the crime. There are reports that his father Mir Seddique said he was upset about gay men kissing he had seen on Miami Beach.
There is also a report that Omar Mateen called 911 and pledged his allegiance to al-Baghdadi of ISIS immediately before the shooting massacre.
Many hours now after the attack bodies are still all over inside the club. And at least 53 people are in critical condition at the Orlando Regional Medical Center.
President Barack Obama from the white house briefing room says this is “An act of terror, and an act of hate,” he also said “The FBI is investigating this as an act of terror.”
The president expressed profound gratitude to police and first responders, and said “this is a heartbreaking day for our friends who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender.”
His remarks also included “No act of hate or terror will ever change who we are” and that, “this is a further reminder of how easy it is for someone to get their hands on a weapon. We have to decide if that is the kind of country we want to be.”
The president took no questions at the conclusion of his statement.
Omar Mateen was born in born in New York to Afghan parents and was married for a time to a woman in New Jersey.
His ex-wife reportedly told the Washington Post that Omar Mateen would beat her frequently for things like the laundry not being done. She said that he was not “a stable person.”
The FBI said that he has been on their radar before. In both 2013 and 2014 but that their investigation was closed due to lack of evidence to support further investigation.
It would appear that the FBI missed something in this case.
Omar Mateen held two firearms licenses both set to expire in september 2017.
