FBI Didn’t Think We’d Find This… Look Who Mateen Pledged Allegiance To

The Obama administration has been trying to convince the American public that last week’s terrorist attack in Orlando, Florida, was just a “lone wolf” attack and not indicative of a more pressing terrorist problem in the United States.

In fact, officials have claimed that Omar Mateen, the Orlando nightclub shooter, was “self-radicalized” and did not have the support of a larger Muslim organization, such as the Islamic State group.

Partial transcripts released by the FBI on Monday of conversations between Mateen and emergency responders didn’t exactly give clarity to how involved the terrorist was with the radical organization, so the public has been forced to piece together information in our search for the truth.

Rukmini Callimachi, a correspondent for The New York Times, went on a Twitter spree with possible explanations to the unanswered questions left over from the partial transcripts.

In particular, she questioned whether Mateen pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group or to the leader of the terrorist organization, as well, because the wording of Mateen’s pledge would indicate how involved he was with the terrorist organization.

As Callimachi pointed out, those who are “in the know” understand that you’re supposed to pledge allegiance to the leader of the Islamic State group, “Baghdadi.”

“This is where you can see level of knowledge & hence the level of radicalization of ppl believed to have been radicalized,” she tweeted.

A simple pledge to the Islamic State group would indicate ignorance about the customs and thus, likely very recent radicalization.

One look at the redacted transcripts, however, showed that Mateen may not have been as “lone wolf” as Obama wants us to believe.

In the transcript, Mateen pledged allegiance to an omitted source, which could have been the Islamic State group, but then he said “may God protect him.”


Callimachi pointed out that Mateen’s use of the word “him” would indicate that he was pledging allegiance to a male person, instead of an entire group.

FBI Director James Comey had previously acknowledged that Mateen mentioned support for the leader of the Islamic State group during phone calls with officials during the massacre, according to Reuters.

However, any specific names of people or groups were omitted from the transcripts, suggesting the FBI was hoping we wouldn’t put two and two together to figure out that the “lone wolf” theory was completely bogus.

“So he was at least knowledge enough 2pledge 2not just ISIS, but its leader and 2name him,” Callimachi tweeted.

This directly contradicts the Obama administration’s claim that Mateen was radicalized without any support from others in the Muslim community, such as recruiters for the Islamic State group.

“What we do know at this point is it appears this was a case of self-radicalization,” Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said, according to the New York Post. “He does not appear to have been part of any group.”

The Obama administration has been trying to pull the shade over our eyes, once again, about the threat of an Islamic State group attack on our own soil. But it cannot deny the shooter’s own words. They can try to gloss over the problem by “omitting” the words, but it doesn’t make it any less true or threatening.
