    Airport Shooter Converted to Islam, Identified as Aashiq Hammad Years Before Joining

    The Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooter is a Muslim convert who years before joining the U.S. Army took on an Islamic name (Aashiq Hammad), downloaded terrorist propaganda and recorded Islamic religious music online, according to public records dug up by the investigative news site of an award-winning, California journalist. This is pertinent information that the Obama administration apparently wants to keep quiet, bringing up memories of the Benghazi cover up, in which the president and his cohorts knowingly lied to conceal that Islamic terrorists attacked the U.S. Special Mission in Libya.


    Information is slowly trickling out that links the Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooter to radical Islam while the official story from authorities is that the gunman is a mentally ill, Hispanic Army veteran named Esteban Santiago that became unhinged after a tour in Iraq. Only one mainstream media outlet mentions the possibility of Santiago’s “jihadist identity,” burying it in a piece about New York possibly being his initial target... ” The reset of the traditional mainstream media coverage promotes the government rhetoric that omits any ties to terrorism even though early on a photo surfaced of Santiago making an ISIS salute while wearing a keffiyeh, a Palestinian Arab scarf.

    I wonder how quickly the Goebbels Inspried Media Propagandists (GIMPs) will move to report this?

    Is mental illness going to be the go to defense for radical Islamists?

    He's a nut. Doesn't matter if he converted to Islam or decided to worship paint drying under the all knowing heat lamp - he's a nut. He told the FBI, for God's sake, that he was hearing voices in his head.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    It's not entirely uncommon for people with mental illness so severe they are literally hearing voices in their head to gravitate toward religion and cling to it whether it be Islam, Hinduism, Christianity, or occultism. An already crazy person attempting to follow the teachings of crazy people is only a logical step forward.
    The risk I took was calculated but man, am I bad at math.

    First thing I think of whenever someone shoots a place up: "Betcha he said 'Allah Akbar!'
    Next day in the news: "Shooter said 'Allah Akbar' before shooting up the place."

    And they still gave him his gun back:

    It’s the same gun the Iraq War veteran had with him after he went to an FBI office in Anchorage, Alaska, in November to claim his mind was being controlled by U.S. intelligence. He said he was being forced to watch ISIS videos.

    Santiago was then committed for four days to be mentally evaluated. A month later, he petitioned to get his gun back from Anchorage police.

    Without a judge’s order to commit him, police say they had no choice but to return the gun.

    Are you a mental health professional? If not, I insist that you provide literature and statistics supporting your unfounded remarks. Please be accurate and specific, or I will know you are bull****ting.

    I'd post more but it is a rather well documented and well known fact that some cases of mentally ill believing the voices in their head to be god/angels/Satan/etc. Your defensiveness is really coming out of left field here.

    Charleston SC would be two. I’m sure that’s the only other one where a mass murderer didn’t yell “allah akbar” murdering innocent people.

    Lots of religious people say that, don't they?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
