Skip to comments.Airport Shooter Converted to Islam, Identified as Aashiq Hammad Years Before Joining Army

The Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooter is a Muslim convert who years before joining the U.S. Army took on an Islamic name (Aashiq Hammad), downloaded terrorist propaganda and recorded Islamic religious music online, according to public records dug up by the investigative news site of an award-winning, California journalist. This is pertinent information that the Obama administration apparently wants to keep quiet, bringing up memories of the Benghazi cover up, in which the president and his cohorts knowingly lied to conceal that Islamic terrorists attacked the U.S. Special Mission in Libya.
Information is slowly trickling out that links the Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooter to radical Islam while the official story from authorities is that the gunman is a mentally ill, Hispanic Army veteran named Esteban Santiago that became unhinged after a tour in Iraq. Only one mainstream media outlet mentions the possibility of Santiagos jihadist identity, burying it in a piece about New York possibly being his initial target. A paragraph deep in the story mentions that investigators recovered Santiagos computer from a pawn shop and the FBI is examining it to determine whether he created a jihadist identity for himself using the name Aashiq Hammad The reset of the traditional mainstream media coverage promotes the government rhetoric that omits any ties to terrorism even though early on a photo surfaced of Santiago making an ISIS salute while wearing a keffiyeh, a Palestinian Arab scarf.
The public records uncovered in the days after the massacre suggest Santiago (Hammad) is a radical Islamic terrorist thats seriously committed to Islam. Besides taking on a Muslim name, he recorded three Islamic religious songs, including the Muslim declaration faith (there is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger) known as the Shahada. He also posted a thread about downloading propaganda videos from Islamic terrorists on a weapons and explosives forum. The investigative news site that unearthed this disturbing information connected the dots between Santiago, who is of Puerto Rican descent, and Hammad, an identity he created in 2007.
This week a prominent Ft. Lauderdale businessman and longtime resident addressed a letter to the citys mayor and commissioners blasting county and federal officials for covering up that Aashiq Hammad, not Esteban Santiago, attacked our city and county. The businessman, respected Ft. Lauderdale real estate entrepreneur Jim Morlock, specifically names Broward Countys elected sheriff Scott Israel, Florida senator Bill Nelson, the first to identify Santiago as the shooter on national television, and congressman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, ousted last summer as Democratic National Committee (DNC) chair over a scandalous plot to damage Bernie Sanders during the primary.
Since when does a US Senator (Bill Nelson), not law enforcement, be the one to so quickly release this terrorists Hispanic name but nothing about his more relevant Islamic background? the letter asks. Obama must have told Sen. Nelson to keep this from looking like a Muslim Terrorist attack during the last 12 days of his watch. Bad for his legacy. Morlock goes on to state that its better to portray this atrocity as white Hispanic Alaskan mental Iraq war vet gun violence. The real estate entrepreneur proceeds to reveal that Santiago lives in walking distance to the only mosque in Alaska, was radicalized before he entered the military and was knowingly allowed to serve despite his Islamic sympathies thanks to Obamas PC military.
The letter poses interesting questions, including why this Muslim terrorist chose Ft. Lauderdale out of all the nations airports and who Santiago knows in Broward county, which has a large and growing Islamic community. In 2015 Judicial Watch obtained records from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) that show and Al Qaeda terrorist who helped plan several U.S. attacks lived in Broward County and graduated from the local community college with a degree in computer engineering. His name is Adnan G. El Shukrijumah, but he also had a Hispanic identity, Javier Robles, and for years he appeared on the FBIs most wanted list. Back in 2012 Judicial Watch reported on a terrorist front groups demands that Broward County public schools close twice a year to celebrate Islamic holy days, illustrating the influence that Muslims have in the region.
The Left continues to deny reality. How can anyone still be surprised that islam is involved in these events?
Sounds like a friend of the Obama Administration.....John Brennan, Muslim head of the CIA missed giving him a job appearantly...
But Islam had nothing to do with it.
He was just mentally ill.
Cue the gun grabbers.
He was a Catholic Hispanic White male with mental issues.
Just because they are Muslim killers and attackers, that doesn't mean they are Muslim terrorists!
You’re exactly right.
Now that we know, send him to collect his virgins.
This murder has certainly been swept under the rug by the media! Unlike Israel, who puts up the photos of the recently martyred, we dump them in the trash can of history. May God rest their souls and may Trump avenge them.
IF ODUMBI HAD A SON
SHOCKING--His name is Adnan G. El Shukrijumah, but he also had a Hispanic identity, Javier Robles, and for years he appeared on the FBIs most wanted list.
Back in 2012 Judicial Watch reported on a terrorist front groups demands that Broward County public schools close twice a year to celebrate Islamic holy days, illustrating the influence that Muslims have in the region.
Sure he did
And 72-96 hours this is Old News in favor of the weeks long Russians Are Coming Fake News
So much for nothing to do with Islam or terrorism. The 0bomb’s record remains unblemished, according to “The One.”
Since the FBI seemed to let this guy slip through the cracks, and the FBI seems to be doing the “full investigation” on this event, does anyone think that the truth will prevail?
How do you spell coverup in Arabic?
But But, we have been told by the Commie media that this guy went nuts after going to Iraq for 5 seconds..but then we find out that in 2007 when this scum bag was 17 years old, he was posting on Jihadist web sites, guess he was “hearing voices” then too/sarc
We all knew this within a few hours.
Many Freepers were doubting it was Islam when they revealed his name and background, but I knew. It’s always Islam.
