All of the other mass shooters have wanted their victims to see and fear them. It has been a individuals who felt powerless gaining a transient sense of control through violence, and who kill themselves before that fleeting experience is ended by the LE response.

Paddock mirrored that pattern only in his suicide. Terrorism and terrorists are not focused upon themselves but upon a cause; their aims can be declared for them by others even after the fact. They don't require intimate contact with their victims because the sense of power and control is not the end goal. Paddock's distance from his victims and his apparent disinterest in being known or "finally understood" seem more similar to terrorism than to the "commando fantasy" shooters that we so often see.

Maybe we never make even the usual amount of sense of this crime, but it seems odd to me.
It makes complete sense if it was a false flag operation. But that's just crazy talk, right?
The craziest part is that the whole event is was so much like what Matthew Bracken wrote about in his book Enemies Foreign And Domestic

Three women in room with Paddock. Names redacted.
Interesting! Sad that in such an important investigation Sheriff Joe Lombardo was caught lying to the public.
