Orlando, the FBI, and the Muslims

While the usual bleating goes on about 'the religion of peace,' the facts on the ground present a much different picture.

The gunman who murdered at least 50 people in a Florida nightclub early Sunday morning was a follower of a controversial gang leader-turned-bank robber who was released from prison last year...Omar Mateen... was a radical Muslim who followed Marcus Dwayne Robertson...

...Robertson's school may not have been the only source of Mateen's spiritual guidance. The gunman was at the Islamic Center of Fort Pierce with Imam Shafiq Rahman two days before the nightclub attack, according to The Washington Post. That mosque was frequented by American-born suicide bomber Monar abu Salha, who blew himself up in Syria in 2014, and the two knew each other, according to officials. Mateen's association with Salha led the FBI to interview him in 2014....

At this point, it is worth asking just whose protocols the Orlando FBI office was using when they 'cleared' this guy after two--not one, but TWO--terror-related contacts.
