25 Year Old Larossi Abballa, ‘Claiming Allegiance to IS group’ Stabs French Police Officer and Partner to Death & Takes Son Hostage in Paris Suberb (Update: Terrorist Killed, Boy Safe)
HMM, HEY OBAMA, FRENCH PRESIDENT FRANCOIS HOLLANDE NOT AFRAID TO CALL ACTS OF TERROR FOR WHAT THEY ARE …
25 Year Old Larossi Abballa, who claimed allegiance to ISIS, stabbed to death a police captain and his companion on Monday had been sentenced to prison in 2013 for membership in a group that was planning terrorist activities. Abballa also took a 3 year old boy hostage. The terrorist was shot dead by members of an elite French police unit after negotiations failed. The child was rescued and safe. President Francois Hollande called the murder of two police officials by a man claiming allegiance to so-called Islamic State (IS) is “unquestionably a terrorist act”.
A man who claimed allegiance to the Islamic State (IS) group stabbed a senior French police officer to death on Monday night before he was killed in a dramatic police operation, officials have said.
The attacker repeatedly stabbed the officer before taking the officer’s partner and their son hostage in their home in Magnanville, near Paris.
He was shot dead by members of an elite police unit after negotiations failed. The partner was found dead but the child was rescued.
French President François Hollande said Tuesday the murders were “unquestionably a terrorist act”.
Sources close to the investigation named the suspect as 25-year-old Larossi Abballa, adding that he had been sentenced in 2013 for links to a jihadist network that sent recruits to Pakistan.
A news agency linked to the IS group said the attack had been carried out by an “Islamic State fighter”, days after posting a similar claim following the massacre at a gay club in Orlando, Florida.
Omar Mateen Was Investigated by FBI … Mateen’s Ex Wife Says, ‘He Was Not a Stable Person’: Orlando Shooter Showed Signs of Emotional Trouble
HOW IN THE HELL DID WE LET THIS UNSTABLE ISLAMIC TERRORIST THROUGH THE CRACKS?
In just another example of what can only make Americans scratch their collective heads in wonderment, how does a 29 year old male who follows Islam, (yes I am profiling), who claims to have had ties to terrorism and had twice had been investigated by the FBI … become the terrorist gunman who murders 49 individuals at a gay nightclub in Orlando, FL and and becomes the greatest mass murder in American history? How could everyone have misread the signs? Or was in political correctness that did so? Just a note to Barack Obama and the liberal news media, terrorism is an act of hate no matter who the victims are. Also a news flash to Obama and the MSM, ISIS hates the homosexual community.
While Mateen claimed allegiance to Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, no evidence had emerged by late Sunday pointing to actual ties to terrorist groups or a significant association with jihadist causes. And although family members said Mateen had expressed anger about homosexuality, the shooter had no record of previous hate crimes.
He had twice come under investigation by the FBI — once for comments suggesting an affinity for Islamist groups, and a second time for vague connections to another Florida man who traveled to Syria to become a suicide bomber. Neither probe turned up evidence of wrongdoing, and Mateen had a blemish-free record when he applied for a Florida license to carry concealed weapons and again when he legally purchased two firearms, including an assault-style semiautomatic rifle, just a few days before the shootings.
But there also were early signs of emotional trouble and a volatile temper, according to Sitora Yusifiy, who was briefly married to Mateen. Yusifiy described Mateen as an abusive husband who beat her repeatedly while they were married.
“He was not a stable person,” she told The Washington Post. “He beat me. He would just come home and start beating me up because the laundry wasn’t finished or something like that.”
Orlando Nightclub Shooting: 49 People Dead in Largest Mass Shooting in US After Radical Islamic Terrorist Gunman Opens Fire at Gay Club Pulse (VIDEO) (Suspect ID’d as Omar Mateen)
49 people were killed and many more injured as a radical Islamist gunman opened fire shooting anyone in sight. The gunman opened fire and took hostages at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, early Sunday morning. The gunman has been identified as 29 year old Omar Mateen, who was killed by police. Prior to the mass murders, Islamic killer Omar Mateen swore allegiance to ISIS.
The terrorist gunman has been shot dead!
At least 50 people were killed and more than 50 others were wounded when a gunman opened fire and took hostages at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, early Sunday morning.
The shooter, identified by several law enforcement sources as Omar Mateen, 29, was killed in a shootout with law enforcement after a three-hour siege.
The massacre — the worst mass shooting in the history of the United States — began when the gunman stormed the Pulse Nightclub about 2 a.m. ET with an AR-15 type rifle and a handgun, officials said.
The carnage ended about 5 a.m. ET, when 11 Orlando police officers and three Orange County sheriff’s deputies stormed the nightclub and exchanged fire with Mateen, authorities said. City officials said about 300 people were in the club at the time of the shooting.
Imagine that, losing your job for not being able to do your job …
Kelly Hoggan, the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) head of security operations was removed from his post Monday. Imagine that, because the TSA is such a model of efficiency and organization.
The Transportation Security Administration’s head of security operations was removed from his post Monday, law enforcement sources told Fox News.
The departure of Kelly Hoggan was one of a series of shakeups at the agency amid a furor over growing security delays at American airports.
Members of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee expressed outrage in a May 12 hearing over a $90,000 bonus package Hoggan received, even after reports surfaced of systematic security screening failures at airports around the country. Those security lapses were detailed in a Department of Homeland Security Inspector General report last year.
TSA administrator Peter Neffenger announced Darby LaJoye, former head of security operations at Los Angeles International Airport and John F. Kennedy International Airport, as Hoggan’s replacement effective immediately, according to the email obtained by Fox News.
HMM, I GUESS 50 WASN’T ENOUGH … THIS FOOL JUST HAS NO CLUE. WHO IS THE JV?
What a joke, Barack Obama announced Monday that he plans to send 250 more special forces to Syria to help build on his so-called successes against ISIS. Oh, what would that be Mr. President? Maybe you could tell us the plan and what you think Syria might look like in 2-5-10 years? I pray for the day we can have a Commander in Chief that actually has a clue and wants to truly defeat the enemy, not use our brave young men and women of out Armed Forced as pawns. Maybe it is just better that he go golf, attend baseball games and pick March Madness brackets.
President Barack Obama announced on Monday the biggest expansion of U.S. ground troops in Syria since the civil war there began, saying he would dispatch 250 special forces soldiers to help local militia to build on successes against Islamic State.
The new deployment increases U.S. forces in Syria six-fold to about 300. While the total U.S. ground force is still small by comparison to other American deployments, defense experts said it could help shift the momentum in Syria by giving more Syrian fighters on the ground access to U.S. close air support.
Announcing the decision in Germany at the end of a six-day foreign tour, Obama said the move followed on victories over Islamic State that clawed back territory from the hard-line Sunni Islamist group.
“Given the success, I’ve approved the deployment of up to 250 additional U.S. personnel in Syria, including special forces to keep up this momentum,” Obama said in a speech at a trade fair in the northern city of Hanover, the last stop on a trip that has taken him to Saudi Arabia and Britain.
“They’re not going to be leading the fight on the ground, but they will be essential in providing the training and assisting local forces as they continue to drive ISIL back,” he added, using an acronym for Islamic State, also known as ISIS.
