41 Dead and 239 Injured in Co-ordinated Terrorist Suicide Attack at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport (VIDEO)

TERRORIST ATTACK HITS TURKEY’S ISTANBUL ATATURK AIRPORT, 36 41 DEAD.

Three explosions rocked Istanbul’s Ataturk airport in a co-ordinated suicide attack as innocent people ran for their lives. In the end there are 41 dead, to date, and nearly 240 injured following this radical Islamic terror attack. However, it is expected that the death toll could rise to 50. Three suicide bombers drove to the airport in a taxi and starting shooting before they blew themselves up. Although they have not officially claimed responsibility for the terror attack, ISIS is suspected.

Witnesses have described the terrifying moment three suicide bombers launched a co-ordinated attack on Istanbul airport that has left at least 41 dead saying there was blood and body parts everywhere.

Shocking footage has shown an explosion at the door to the arrivals hall by a suicide bomber before another two attackers snuck into the building and detonated their devices.

Twenty-three of the victims were Turkish citizens and 13 foreign nationals were also among the casualties, an official has said. A total of 41 people have already been confirmed dead, but Turkish officials said that number is expected to rise to 50.

This morning the airport has re-opened while investigators piece together what happened, just hours after the attacks, which also left 239 people injured.

One of the passengers who was traveling through Ataturk airport at the time of the blasts was Laurence Cameron, a British cameraman who was traveling from Latvia to Izmir, on the Turkish coast.

UPDATE I: Airports in the U.S. and around the world increased security in the wake of Tuesday night’s suicide bombing attack at Istanbul airport.

Airports in the U.S. and around the world increased security in the wake of Tuesday night’s suicide bombing attack at Istanbul airport, in which the Islamic State terror group is suspected of killing at least 41 and injuring hundreds more.

The body count was expected to climb in the wake of the attack at one of the world’s busiest airports after three suicide bombers opened fire with AK-47s before blowing themselves up as police engaged them. As if to underscore Turkey’s determination to carry on in the face of a growing threat, the airport reopened Wednesday, just hours after the dead and some 239 wounded were carried away and glass and debris cleared.

“The findings of our security forces point at the Daesh organization as the perpetrators of this terror attack,” Turkish Prime Miniser Binali Yildirim told reporters at the airport, using the Arabic name for ISIS. “Even though the indications suggest Daesh, our investigations are continuing.”

Attorney General Loretta Lynch Says: Our Most Effective Response to Terror is Compassion, Unity and Love (VIDEO)

GOOD GRIEF: FROM THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WHO HAS BROUGHT YOU ISIS COMES, ALL WE NEED IS LOVE TO FIGHT TERRORISM.

Yesterday, Attorney General Loretta Lynch spoke in Orlando, Florida and stated, our most effective response to terror and hatred is compassion, it’s unity, and it’s love.” ARE YOU FRIGGING KIDDING ME!!! Let’s understand this, the United States most effective response to terror is compassion, its unity and its love? WTF is this woman talking about? This is the liberal, political correctness agenda that is going to get us all killed. Liberalism truly is a disease.  As Legal Insurrection opined, “It should come as a surprise to no one that under Obama, the nation’s top law enforcement officer sounds more like a high school guidance counselor than a prosecutor.” It is exactly this type of thinking and dealing with terrorism, or the lack thereof, that is responsible for 49 individuals being slaughtered in an Orlando nightclub. How is it that the Obama administration uses more harsh words and rhetoric to describe Republicans and Conservatives than they do terrorists? Thus lies the problem. The barbarians are at the gates and according to the Obama administration, all ya need is love.

We have an administration that has their heads up their collectives asses so far due to an ideology that they are putting America and Americans at risk. I would ask, who is the JV? It would seem it is the current Obama administration. Democrats need to be thrown out of office before we are all killed by terrorists.

Washington Free Beacon:

Lynch said the Department of Justice stood in solidarity with the LGBT community “in the light” following a Muslim terrorist’s massacre of 49 people at a gay nightclub last week.

“We stand with you to say that the good in this world far outweighs the evil, that our common humanity transcends our differences, and that our most effective response to terror and to hatred is compassion, it’s unity, and it’s love,” Lynch said. “We stand with you today as we grieve together, and long after the cameras are gone, we will continue to stand with you as we grow together in commitment, in solidarity, and in equality.”

Lynch has been in the news for defending the administration’s decision to redact transcripts between law enforcement and the terrorist, Omar Mateen, during his attack.

Lotus Gunworks Gun Store Owner: We Called FBI Before Orlando Shooting Where 49 Were Killed

THE PROBLEM ISN’T THE GUNS, THE PROBLEM MAY BE THE DIRECTION FROM ABOVE IN THE FBI

Not only was the terrorist gunman Omar Mateen investigated twice by the FBI for potential terrorist behavior in the past, but prior to the Orlando night club shooting where 49 people were slaughtered a gun store owner called the FBI regarding Mateen. The co-owner of a Florida gun store, Lotus Gunworks, says his employees contacted law enforcement before the Orlando shooting after gunman Omar Mateen attempted to purchase body armor and ammunition. We are told as citizens to be aware and report things that are unusual.

Maybe, just maybe Barack Obama and Democrats, who would use a tragedy that was a result of radical-Islamic terrorism, for their own liberal anti-gun agenda, maybe this more about a government agency that seems to have restrictive rules in doing their job. How is it that Mateen, like the Boston Marathon terrorist brothers slipped through the cracks? Every indication would point to the fact that they were vulnerable to be swayed to terrorism. Some how the FBI thought differently. A note to Barack Obama, former co-workers stated that Mateen was a ticking time bomb and some how the FBI said no. So if you really stand in solidarity with law-abiding Americans and not just pandering for your anti-Second Amendment agenda, you will have to admit, the government got it wrong and We the People had it right. It was not a gun that killed 49 innocent people at a gay night club in Orlando, Florida, it was your inability to define the enemy and deal with terrorism. So who is the JV now Mr. President?

The co-owner of a Florida gun store says his employees contacted law enforcement before the Orlando shooting after gunman Omar Mateen attempted to purchase body armor and ammunition.

Robbie Abell, co-owner of Lotus Gunworks, said Thursday his workers had a gut feeling about Mateen when he came to the store four or five weeks ago.

Mateen asked for level 3 body armor, according to Abell, but was told the store didn’t carry it. He then made a phone call and spoke in Arabic before asking for bulk ammunition, but employees did not sell it to him.

Abell told reporters “we contacted FBI direct” after Mateen left the store but he did not elaborate on how investigators responded. He believed his employees did what they should have done, Abell said.

Law enforcement officials have told CBS News at this point, they have not found any evidence that the gun shop contacted police about Mateen’s alleged suspicious behavior.

So before you decide to take people’s guns away, maybe you might want to adequately have the FBI investigate those that fit all the descriptions of a terrorist. Do I dare say it, how about the FBI profile Muslim extremists?

Federal Grand Jury Could Charge Wife, Noor Salman, of Orlando Nightclub Shooter Omar Mateen

WHAT DID SHE KNOW AND WHY DIDN’T SHE SAY ANYTHING?

Is it possible that the deadliest mass shooting in American history could have easily been prevented? It certainly is starting to look that way. A federal grand jury has been convened to look into possible wrongdoing by the wife, Noor Salman, of the gunman who killed 49 people at an Orlando gay nightclub. Possible criminal charges could be brought against her. As reported at NBC News, Noor Salman feared he was going to attack a gay nightclub overnight Saturday and pleaded with him not to do anything violent, but failed to warn police after he left. WHO DOES THIS? How on earth do you dot say something? She feared he was going to go to the Pulse nightclub and shoot someone and she still did not notify the authorities. UNREAL.

A federal grand jury has been convened to look into possible wrongdoing by the wife of the gunman who killed 49 people at an Orlando gay nightclub, and criminal charges could be brought against her early as Wednesday, a law enforcement source said.

Omar Mateen’s wife, Noor Salman, knew of his plans for what became the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, said the law enforcement source who has been briefed on the matter.

“It appears she had some knowledge of what was going on,” said U.S. Senator Angus King, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, which received a briefing on the attack.

“She definitely is, I guess you would say, a person of interest right now and appears to be cooperating and can provide us with some important information,” King told CNN.

Salman was with Mateen when he cased out possible targets for an attack in the past two months, including the Disney World resort in April, then a shopping complex called Disney Springs and the Pulse nightclub in early June, CNN and NBC reported.
