Skip to comments.IPT Exclusive: Document Reveals Omar Mateen's Father Tied to Radical Islamist Groups
Posted on 06/20/2016 5:52:22 PM PDT by Nachum
The father of Orlando mass shooter Omar Mateen has longstanding connections to prominent Islamist groups in the U.S., a document discovered by the Investigative Project on Terrorism shows. Seddique Matin is listed as president of a then-new American Muslim Alliance (AMA) chapter in Fort Pierce in a July 1997 announcement archived by the IPT.
The AMA sponsored several radical conferences in the U.S. and its leader, Agha Saeed, has spoken in defense of convicted terrorists, including Aafia Siddiqui (a.k.a "Lady al-Qaida"), Palestinian Islamic Jihad board member Sami Al-Arian, and Pakistani intelligence lobbyist Ghulam Nabi Fai.
The Fort Pierce chapter is among 10 new AMA chapters opened, the announcement in an AMA bulletin says.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
NO talk about dad’s job —maybe some type of former or current CIA asset..?
Maybe dad had LE influence and could crush inquiries into his SON..?
Gun shop called, etc but NO ACTION taken.
Here is a chilling one:
**Maybe Omar was an ASSET who got doubts about the way he’d gone and flipped BACK to the dark side..?**
Sorry, we gotta consider it ALL.
The parallels are spooky:
The Boston Bombers also had an Uncle who’d married way, WAAAY up in the CIA, married the daughter of the #4 guy:
That high-up guy’s specialty had been how the US should cozy up to, co-opt and CONTROL Central Asian muslims..! He strongly advocated a level of engagement that was HEAD-SPINNING.
Maybe Omar is something similar...?
so what is his father and family’s immigration status? did they lie on their applications?
Probably friends with Huma Abedin!!
Meanwhile Obama call the Orlando jihad attack "home grown extremism" and calls for gun bans.
Blaming guns for Muslim hate filled attacks makes about as much sense as blaming Zyclon B for the Holocaust instead of Nazi Ideology. (h/t Cubs Fan)
My prediction: The FBI considered Mateen an “asset,” one of their CI’s used to ferret out the “radicals” at the mosque.
They thought they were playing him, but he played them.
Which would explain why they didn’t follow up the gun store owner’s call about the armor vest sale etc.
“Omar Mateen? He’ one of ours. Let it go.”
Shades of Elohim City, and OKC.
See my last above.
My question to the FBI:
WAS OMAR MATEEN AT ANY TIME A “CONFIDENTIAL INFORMANT?”
This won’t go away, guys. Come clean. Start to rebuild your lost honor.
Why would they have to lie? The current administration appears to love extreme moozlums.
Why is the father still here?
The gun store didn’t know his name.
Vaguely Carol Howe/John Doe 2’ish.
The more I think about it, the more it really makes sense.
Didn’t Disney drop a dime on Mateen as well?
Coupled with Comey's admission that they had this guy under surveillance for YEARS.
That all leads to the WH, and most certainly to Hillary.
that doesn't look so hot.
I guess Hillary wants to kill gay people.
This is a consequence of adopting the idea that the enemy is our “partner”, an idea promoted by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and adopted by the State Department, DOJ, DOD, and DHS.
on and on
