It’s too obvious that something else inspires them. 29 year old Omar Mateen swore allegiance to ISIS, in a call to 911 before he massacred a large portion of the crowd inside an Orlando gay bar. Prior to this time he had been employed as a security guard at a juvenile detention center. His first wife had accused him of domestic violence, and he had been described as a “known quantity” to the FBI.
Meanwhile another person transporting weapons and explosive substances has been detained in LA. He claimed to have been headed to the Gay Pride Festival in West Hollywood. The name of the second person is being withheld, but it is claimed that the two incidents are not related.
Updates are taking place on Drudge Report and Breitbart websites if immediate and less massaged news coverage is desired. CBS has published that ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack. The Gateway Pundit had pointed out that there was chatter from ISIS three days ago, predicting attacks on civilians in Florida.
Prayers for the dead, the injured and those grieving the loss of life at this time. It is hoped that we can formulate a rational response to this act of terrorism, that respects the human right of people to protect themselves from being killed.
