Wife of Orlando mass murderer is missing.


Wife of Orlando mass murderer has been arrested at her home in San Fransisco.

Maybe she was confused about what sanctuary city now means. Speaking to the FBI with out an attorney present is dangerous to your freedom.



From what I read, and heard after the attack, she was fully aware of his intent, "claimed" she had tried to talk him out of it, but did nothing to stop it. I believe she also provided him transportation to the club that night, but that may be incorrect. Either way, she is just as culpable as the garbage she married. JMHO

So is lying to the FBI, unless your last name ends in Clinton.

Here is some interesting additional perspective on the shooting. I hope that the information was duplicated in some earlier article. This one is dated later than the latest post on the thread.

I've always been fascinated by the "Just In Time" training concept (Trinty gets helicopter pilot instructions in the movie "The Matrix). It apparently applied to the Orlando shooter and his rifle jam.

There are some hard truths in that article. I'm not surprised that I haven't heard many of these things on the regular news regarding this shooting.

The Pulse Nightclub Shooter's Wife Metaphorically Pulled the Trigger

At the end of December, federal authorities quietly released new information on the Pulse Nightclub Shooting, USA Today reported. In the 12-page statement, authorities detail what Noor Salman, the gunman's wife, knew about his actions leading up to the June 2016 shooting.

Salman was arrested last year on federal charges for providing material support to a terrorist and tampering with evidence. She has pleaded not guilty and maintains the notion that she was suffering from PTSD stemming from abuse by her husband, Omar Mateen.

Salman's current stance contradicts a signed statement she provided the FBI back in 2016, when she goes into details of Mateen's plan of attack. On multiple occasions, she told the FBI about his plans to attack Pulse Nightclub. She even told the FBI that when he left their house that night that he was planning to carry out his attack.
Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence. - John Adams

WOW! I never heard that part... the comments from the OPD were also excellent:
.....Even worse, it was discovered that the shooter had a rifle malfunction that prevented him from using his firearm and had enough time, with the help of the internet, to clear that malfunction. That’s right, his rifle malfunctioned and he used his phone to watch a video on how to fix it. Now I do not know about you, but I have worked far too hard in my life to just let someone try to kill me without at least fighting back.

I was horrified by the fact that the shooter could walk around the nightclub and shoot people who were kneeling or cowering on the dance floor and in the bathrooms without one single person doing so much as throwing something at him. How hard would it have been for him to shoot with liquor bottles flying at him, or chairs, or something? Better yet, imagine if people were allowed to carry their self-defense firearms in the club. Once the shooter started to fire, a good Samaritan with a concealed weapons license could have pulled their firearm and returned fire. But it’s illegal to carry a concealed firearm in a club or bar in Florida. This gun free zone did not stop the criminal from shooting, it only stopped law-abiding citizens from defending themselves.....

Since I don't go to gay night clubs or straight ones for that matter, (It's probably been 20 + years since I've been in a garden variety bar) I do my boozing at home, but if I did go to either and shooting broke out, I wouldn't work at protecting anyone but me.

Sound cold?

Probably, but given the litigious world we live in I'm not protecting folks I don't know, I'm protecting me and mine only.

Others, are on their own.

No, I'm not protecting you with one caveat...and it's quite doubtful if the atmosphere is a bar, you're a pregnant woman or a child, then yes, if I must I'll shoot it out and die for you if I must...and I'm in no way a hero or ready to be one either...
