It has been one whole week since the Orlando tragedy. Today the FBI has new evidence that will help Americans reach closer to the truth. Authorities have released a bone-chilling transcript of the call made by Islamic terrorist Omar Mateen during the attack.
On the call Mateen speaks Arabic and makes many references to ISIS. He even claims to be a “soldier of the caliphate”.
The following transcript was provided by the Department of Justice. In it, you will see that they omitted the word ‘ISIS’ numerous times. This is only a partial transcript. The Department of Justice desired to prevent victimizing survivors from the Orlando nightclub attack.
OM: In the name of God the Merciful, the beneficial [in Arabic]
OM: Praise be to God, and prayers as well as peace be upon the prophet of God [in Arabic]. I let you know, I’m in Orlando and I did the shootings.
OM: My name is I pledge of allegiance to [omitted].
OM: I pledge allegiance to [omitted] may God protect him [in Arabic], on behalf of [omitted].
Catherine Herridge is the Chief Intelligence Correspondent of Fox News. She summed up the Islamic terrorist’s allegiance to ISIS in two words: steady drumbeat.
ISIS terrorist Mateen is stating his allegiance without apology. This is evidence to a potential threat. One only has to wonder, Hello! Is anybody home in America?
There are many summaries of this transcript floating around the news. One explains that in the call, the shooter identifies himself as an Islamic soldier. He told the crisis negotiator that he was “the person who pledged his allegiance to [omitted].” Mateen continues to urge America to stop bombing Syria and Iraq. He confirms that is the why he was “out here right now”.
The following is based on Orlando Police Department (OPD) radio communication (times are approximate):
2:02 a.m.: OPD call transmitted multiple shots fired at Pulse nightclub.
2:04a.m.: Additional OPD officers arrived on scene.
2:08 a.m.: Officers from various law enforcement agencies made entrance to Pulse and engaged the shooter.
2:18 a.m.: OPD S.W.A.T. (Special Weapons & Tactics) initiated a full call-out.
2:35 a.m.: Shooter contacted a 911 operator from inside Pulse. The call lasted approximately 50 seconds.
The story is still developing. One question we should ask ourselves is what is being done? America should not ignore the evidence. It is hitting us on the head! What will America do now?
We need drastic measures for these desperate times!
