FBI has found no evidence that Orlando shooter targeted Pulse because it was a gay club

The FBI has found no evidence so far that Omar Mateen, who killed 49 people and wounded more than 53 at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, chose the popular establishment because of its gay clientele, U.S law enforcement officials said.

“While there can be no denying the significant impact on the gay community, the investigation hasn’t revealed that he targeted Pulse because it was a gay club,” a U.S. law enforcement official said.

Soon after the shooting in the early morning of June 12, top U.S officials such as the FBI director and U.S. attorney general described it as both a hate crime and an act of Islamic terrorism. The shooting rattled the gay community, which felt singled out by Mateen.

“People often act out of more than one motivation,” Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch said in the days after the attack. “This was clearly an act of terror and an act of hate.”

A month later, though, a complete picture of what motivated Mateen remains murky and may never be known since he was killed in a shootout with police and did not leave a manifesto. Officials said there is no evidence thus far that Mateen, 29, was gay or that his attack was motivated by homophobia.

    The PC FBI could not find its own Azzz if held in both hands.

    Justice has been Lynched!

    Watch it, FBI… You are going against the mantra of the Administration and that can adversely effect your budget. While I can believe it was not simply because they were gay but because they were free Americans acting in a way that is against the beliefs of murdering morons, you can not say it with out repercussions. After all, it the attack is on foreign soil, it’s terrorism (Nice) but if something similar happens here, it’s merely “gun violence” (Orlando, San Bernardino, etc). Heck, even though the bad guys say they are ISIS supporters, Lynch would NOT call it terrorism. (Yet we are required to call a man who won Olympic medals as a man a woman because he says he is one, go figure)

    The Muzzie Omar Mateen was gay himself – a patron of the club – familiar with the layout of the club and knew the club would be busy Saturday night. He was making a political statement – just another Puppet Thug of King Bo..

    • used_to_be_a_liberal

      Sorry Ken, he was not gay. He was checking these clubs out, to see which one was the best one for him to hit, just like a bank robber checks out a bank before trying to rob it.

      • Ken says

        It’s a bitch to be wrong – BUT YOU ARE – go over all the evidence . His father was a Muzzie Zealot and would be the last person to admit he had a gay son – it’s better his son be known as a traitor and eligible for the virgins. If I were to bet on what Allah gives them – father and son will get a goat.

        • used_to_be_a_liberal

          I guess it depends who you want to believe. The more politically correct version that exonerates Muslims and Islam, by saying that this P O S was gay, or simply an over-reactive homo-hater.
          Or, the truer version, that he was fulfilling his loyalty to Islam.

          21 Jun 2016 … Mateen was “very sweet” and liked to be “cuddled,” the man told Univision. But he was upset about the way gay men responded to him.

          24 Jun 2016 … Omar Mateen does not appear to have frequented gay clubs or dated men using gay phone apps, according to the FBI.

          • Ken says

            Omar had multiple problems – he was Muslim – he was Gay – his father was a Muzzie Zealot. His friends from high school talk about his m2m activities and he was also prone to violent episodes that show the inner conflict the guy was having with being Gay and his Religion. He chose his Religion to gain his fathers approval. Omar is dead but his father should be charged as co conspirator in the murders. Both are Radical Islamic Terrorists.

            YEAH the Same FBI that can;t find their ass with a gps

  • Donnie Buchanan

    His father stated that he was VERY upset when he saw two gays kissing at the beach.

    • Ken says

      When father and son are going to have their trove of virgins taken because the son is gay and the father raised a gay son – now they will each get a goat – what would you say if you were the father?

  • Dolores Adams

    The FBI could have been ordered by the chief-divider to not indict Hellary.

    • CharlieSeattle

      That fact is a given.

  • aztex7007

    Yeah, and the sun rises in the North and sets in the East. FBI has
    lost credibility and no one trust Loretta the Liar. Here is an essay

  • unbridled

    The fbi is full of SHYT! Or, maybe just full of obama & hillery. Same thing actually. Does anyone still believe the fbi? Forget why he did it. Who cares. He did it and we know why. If they could they would say it was some conservative white guy to please the spook in the people’s house.
    Where is the shooters wife? Word has it she packed up and skipped with the father’s help. He says he knows nothing. They let her skip and can’t find her? Yeah, OKAY! We’re stupid enough….
    FBI= Federal Bunglers & Idiots.

    • Worried Vet

      You left out Christian conservative white guy quoting God , that’s what they want us to believe so Muslim law can take over.

      • unbridled

        Okay, I took care of it….LOL

        • Worried Vet

          Thanks. It’s sad but true. How liberals have two sets of standards. They blame everything on everyone else but the ones responsible. It’s time for a change in D.C.
