Here are some items related to this morning's attack at the gay bar, Pulse, this morning in Orlando.
First of all, the official response from US president Barack Obama:
President Obama's speech contained about as much information, and as much propaganda, as did the CBC report on this Islamic terror attack which failed to contain even a single reference to motive other than, "A hate crime".
In the event that through embarrassment, the CBC updates their report with a modicum of fact, the original report is archived here.
Analyst, Dr. Sebastian Gora is interviewed on FOX and makes pertinent observations.
"...nor is it a hate crime". I hope someone calls that in to President Obama.
"...is an Afghan man who holds strong political views, including support for the Afghan Taliban."
The father of Omar Mateen, identified by police as the man behind the carnage at an Orlando nightclub early Sunday morning, is an Afghan man who holds strong political views, including support for the Afghan Taliban.
Seddique Mateen, who has been referred to as Mir Seddique in early news reports, hosted the “Durand Jirga Show” on a channel called Payam-e-Afghan, which broadcasts from California. In it, the elder Mateen speaks in the Dari language on a variety of political subjects. Dozens of videos are posted on a channel under Seddique Mateen's name on YouTube. A phone number and post office box that are displayed on the show were traced back to the Mateen home in Florida. Mateen also owns a nonprofit organization under the name Durand Jirga, which is registered in Port St. Lucie, Fla.
More will be posted separately later today.
