Omar Mateen: Under FBI surveillance one day, terrorist the next
by Allan C. Brownfeld - Jun 21, 2016A careful review of how the FBI conducts business with regard to terrorism is clearly overdue. Boston Bombers, Texas shooters and the Orlando killer - each remained free to inflict damage despite FBI investigations.
WASHINGTON, June 20, 2016 — The mass murder carried out by Omar Mateen in Orlando highlights the failure of government to identify and monitor potential killers. It is still not clear what motivated his attack, whether it was his own conflicted sexuality, his commitment to Islamic extremism and ISIS, or a combination of factors. What is clear is that his troubled history made him unfit to work for a security company or to purchase an assault weapon long before he went to the Pulse Nightclub.
But no one paid proper attention, and 49 were killed, 53 wounded.http://www.commdiginews.com/politics-2/omar-mateen-under-fbi-surveillance-one-day-terrorist-the-next-65948/#I5TM9KYj9BtfDFTH.03
