Does anything happen in this administration that isn’t a coverup?
And do mainstream media ever think about regaining at least a small portion of the credibility they have lost by talking about it?
Excerpted from Bill Gertz’s article at Washington Free Beacon – and please pay special attention to the first two paragraphs which I have put in bold print:
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.
Initial reports from several news outlets reporting on the mass shooting variously described Mateen as gay, a “homophobe” and a “wife beater,” despite his having made claims of allegiance to the Islamic State.
THEY KNEW. But, in an effort to push a social agenda they sat back and watched media weave a fairy tale of this having something to do with homophobia, instead of what THEY KNEW it was – radical islamic lunacy.
If this were a Republican administration and the coverup was for some piece of social legislation favored by the right, you can bet your bottom dollar media would be screaming about this from the rooftops.
But the information investigative reporter Bill Gertz uncovered has been available since last week. And I would bet money that either Mr. Gertz’s article or this blog is the first you know about it.
This administration, and its media sycophants, are a disgrace. Why would anyone believe any of them?
