I have some questions for those at the FBI.
The culpability of the federal government, particularly the FBI and his security firm employer, in the murders of those in Orlando shows a serious lack of action, a bizarre indifference to those radicalized.
Did the FBI interview his ex-wife? If not, why not? If yes, what did she say?
His former wife has described him as “not a stable person.”
“He was mentally unstable and mentally ill.”
The FBI and his employer didn’t know this? Why wasn’t his firearms license revoked?
Apparently the FBI interviewed some of his co-workers. Yet, nothing happened. Who was interviewed and what did they share?
One co-worker, after the attack, said that “he was an angry, loud, profane man who used slurs for gay people, blacks, Jews and women.”
He was “unhinged and unstable.” There’s that word again: unstable.
“I saw it coming,” he said. “He talked about killing people all the time.”
“I saw it coming.” Yet, the so-called experts didn’t. Why didn’t the FBI act? Why didn’t his employer, the security company G4S?
Some of his classmates from his high school in Florida claim he celebrated the 9/11 attacks.
“After 9/11 happened, he started changing and acting different.”
Did the FBI talk with any friends and acquaintances from high school? Did the FBI do or request a psych evaluation?
The Associated Press has even more damning information about what the FBI knew, including quotes and information from FBI Director James Comey.
Mateen had twice come to the FBI’s attention before Sunday’s shooting, the FBI said. It investigated him for 10 months, beginning in May 2013, because he had made “inflammatory and contradictory” statements about ties to terrorist groups that caught his coworkers’ attention.
He told folks that he wanted to be a martyr.
Mateen had also told coworkers “he hoped that law enforcement would raid his apartment and assault his wife and child so that he could martyr himself,” Comey said.
And yet the FBI still refused to do more.
Comey said Mateen admitted making the statements reported by his coworkers, but explained that he did it in anger because he thought they were discriminating against him and teasing him because he was Muslim, Comey said.
They just took him at his word? How gullible is the FBI?
Comey said that FBI agents interviewed Mateen again during the investigation, but found no “significant contacts with the suicide bomber for Al-Nusra” and moved on.
So, because he didn’t apparently have any connections to terrorist groups, the FBI dropped the matter? What the hell?! Has the FBI ever heard of lone wolves?
The Boston bombers likely acted on their own. So why the hell did the FBI dismiss all of this mounting evidence in the case of Mateen?
Are agents in the FBI really this stupid?
