Chattanooga Shooter Followed Al Qaeda Cleric Online in 2013 [FBI, Media still baffled on motive]

FBI agents have found evidence that Chattanooga shooter Mohammod Abdulazeez was following a radical American member of al Qaeda online in 2013, as well as pages of writing that showed the young man was suicidal and looking for a way to absolve what he considered were his sins, according to a representative of Abdulazeez's family.

Video tapes of Anwar al-Awlaki, the high-profile American al Qaeda cleric and recruiter, have circulated on the internet and have been popular in jihadist circles long after al-Awlaki's death by American drone strike in September 2011.

....there is no evidence so far that Mohammod Abdulazeez, 24 -- whose family insists he was deeply troubled and mentally ill -- was inspired by or directed by ISIS to carry out a bloody attack on U.S. military targets of the sort the Syria and Iraq-based terror group has publicly called for over the past year, the officials said. Al-Awlaki was a high-profile member of al Qaeda, from which ISIS -- once an al Qaeda affiliate in Iraq -- publicly split in recent years.

Yes, you see that right:

"there is no evidence so far that Mohammod Abdulazeez...was inspired by or directed by ISIS.... Al-Awlaki was a high-profile member of al Qaeda...

So the murderer, you see, was NOT inspired by ISIS, but maybe Al-Qaeda. We are JUST NOT SURE FOLKS.

By the way, the Confederate flag made Dylan Roof a murderer.

Mohammod was his name. He did a spring break trip to Jordon.

No Red Flag for the FBI? WTF?

What the hell is the FBI doing?

He was a fricking muslim terrorist out to kill westerners and Christians.
Note that all terrorists attend a mosque. Maybe issuing mosque control would reduce the violence that they generate.

I’m sure they are searching everywhere for some link between this guy and a confederate flag.

“I’m sure they are searching everywhere for some link between this guy and a confederate flag.”

Next best thing, each report talking about his friends points out he visited a local shooting range often. Sometimes they even put up the sign for the range and a picture of some targets presumably at that range too.

It was interesting that, under the guise of their attorney, the family claimed the poor widdle tewwowist was despressed.

When the newsies interviewed various former school acquaintances, coaches, neighbors, etc., not a one of them gave any indication that the poor widdle tewwowist showed signs of medical or psychology problems. Nearly all of them claimed he was just an average, ordinary, regular guy.

I love the way the media is ‘puzzled’ over the possible motivations of Abdulazeez, but are very certain that the motivation of the black church shooter was the flag of the Confederacy.

Hey Trump and Cruz. Another Alphabet group to add to the list to defund, the FBI.

They cannot find their ass with both hands and are of no use to us anymore. Either defund or promote the lowest ranking individual to the top and cut the ones in between.

FoxNews just reporting that a hand gun was found inside one of the Chattanooga recruitment centers.

Reporter speculated that the gun may have been a ‘private’ weapon of one of the Marines. The weapon seems to have no connection to the shooter and was not an ‘official’ military issue. If so, did the one who possessed the weapon violate the ‘gun free zone’ regulation? Did he use the weapon to respond to the shooter's shots?

Why did it take 30 minutes to put him down?

My wife often has FOX on in the background.

Last night, I happened by, and FOX (was it Megan’s program?) appeared to have someone doing a full court press on how disturbed and mentally ill the Chattanooga Muslim was. “He was depressed; his family says he was drinking and doing drugs for years, etc.”

All of these statements seemed to imply that he wasn’t a “good Muslim” because “good Muslims” don’t do these things. Consequently, the implication — which was unstated — was that Islam was not in any way to blame. He was just a lone nut.

I got the impression that this was a high-up editorial decision to steer the conversation away from the obvious conclusion and protect Islam. It was statement after statement—not just a fact or two thrown in.

Did anyone else see this segment and feel the same way?

What is going on in the Virginia state legislature? · by LSUfan · 9 replies ACT! for America ^ | 18 March 14 | Brigitte Gabriel

Something is terribly wrong with the Virginia state legislature. On Wednesday, March 5th, in House Joint Resolution 484, the elected representatives of the people of Virginia commended the notorious, terror-tied Dar al Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church. Dar al Hijrah has a history of ties to multiple known and convicted terrorists, led by its former Imam, Anwar al-Awlaki, who became head of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, before he was killed in a US air strike in 2011. It was this institution that the Virginia House and Senate agreed to commend by voice vote. This amounts to an...
