This is the first time ISIS has claimed responsibility for an attack on US soil.
Shortly before the attack, Mateen, who was born in New York to Afghan parents, called 911 and pledged allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, law enforcement officials told NBC News.
And the terror group's Amaq news agency said on Sunday the Islamist militant group was responsible for the shooting.
Hello JIC? Paging Mr. smartest guy in the room... Willing to change your tune yet?
Overnight conversion...you know exactly nothing of what you spew. ISIS took credit...and the evidence of his radicalism, depth and breadth is DAMNING and overwhelming. Like usual though, you and your liberal buddies are out in force here to belittle those who speak the truth. You progs ALWAYS know better. You pity us poor ignorant fools who are so bigoted and hateful. Literally nearly everything you wrote has been proven woefully wrong based on the incoming evidence. But you say it with conviction though. You are an authority, right? Please.JohnInCarolina said:With respect to the shooter in Orlando? I'm not sure there's a lot more that that could have been done by law enforcement. The guy was born here, acquired a firearm legally, and with an apparently overnight conversion - appears to have had little to no contact with terrorists overseas. He was a "lone wolf." There's a reason ISIS is encouraging those - because they're almost impossible to catch.jabam said:@JohnInCarolina so what would you do? Just curious where you stand on all this. Not trying to antagonize, just wanting to hear your view.
