Another supposed “lone gunman”, this one a Muslim extremist named Omar Mateen, shoots and kills 49 and injures another 53 at a gay nightclub in Orlando. Already, a number of points lend credence to those who might suggest that intelligence agencies more so than desert-dwelling terrorist organizations are responsible for organizing and directing the attacks. A number of questionable aspects regarding this shooting include:
- The FBI knew about the shooter and investigated him prior to the attack.
- The shooter had a connection to a known ISIS recruiter.
- The shooter’s father was a former “Afghan presidential candidate” who supported the Taliban.
- The FBI’s history in creating terrorism.
FBI Foreknowledge, ISIS Sympathies, Taliban Ties
What may at first sound like an instance of senseless violence brings with it a number of other questions. For instance, the FBI was already well aware of Omar Mateen and his apparent connections to radical jihad and terrorism. According to CNN’s article, “50 Killed in Florida Nightclub, Shooter Pledged ISIS Allegiance,” two officials tell CNN that the FBI had investigated Mateen at some point for possibly having ties to or sympathizing with Islamic extremism. A law enforcement official said there were two cases opened involving Mateen but the probes didn’t result in enough evidence to charge him with anything. Omar Mateen worked as a contractor for the US Department of Homeland Security.
In addition, Omar’s Afghan-American father, Seddique Mateen, who is closely linked to some of the most powerful leaders and agencies in Washington DC, was also a CIA asset. But there’s more! Seddique Mateen is also planning to run for President of Afghanistan and is allied with the Taliban leadership – an absolutely ideal profile for a Washington-managed, CIA controlled-opposition political candidate.
The investigations were reported by a number of mainstream media organizations and later confirmed by the FBI itself during a press conference. The FBI admitted that Mateen had been interviewed by agents twice in 2013 due to comments made about radical jihad which were overheard by coworkers. He was interviewed for a third time one year later due to his connection to Moner Mohammad Abu Salha, an American who had traveled from Florida to train in Syria and later to return to the United States in order to recruit other Americans to fight in the Western-backed terrorist brigades attempting to overthrow secular and legitimate government, Bashar Al Assad.
Salha allegedly returned to Syria and blew himself up in a suicide bombing. It is also interesting to note that Mateen’s father Seddique Mateen is a political personality in his own right having hosted a TV show and apparently declared himself a presidential candidate for Afghanistan. Seddique has denounced the Pakistani government and expressed support and encouragement for the Taliban movement.
Still, the question regarding the fact that Mateen was on the FBI’s radar is extremely important. One key aspect suggesting a false flag that should be looked for soon after the attack is any possible connection the suspect or group of suspects may have had with intelligence agencies. A connection to any one of these organizations and institutions may go some length in explaining how the attack was coordinated, the motivation of the perpetrators, the actual involvement (or not) of the suspects, and who actually directed the operation. For instance, on 9/11, many of the alleged hijackers had previously had close contact with the FBI, CIA, and other high-level intelligence agencies (both home and abroad). Likewise, the Tsarnaev brothers who have been accused of masterminding and carrying out the Boston Bombing had ties to the FBI before the attack.
In many instances, connections to certain military agencies and communities should serve as the same red flag as connections to intelligence agencies since these institutions have largely been blended together.
The Presence Of FBI “Informants”
The FBI did much more than simply “investigate” Mateen – they introduced him to “informants” as well. According to the New York Daily News in the article, “FBI spied on Orlando gay club terrorist Omar Mateen for 10 months in 2013: FBI Director James Comey,”
Mateen first appeared on authorities’ radar in 2013 after the security guard’s colleagues alerted the FBI to inflammatory statements he made to colleagues claiming “family connections to Al Qaeda,” according to Comey. Mateen also told coworkers he had a family member who belonged to Hezbollah, a Shia network that is a bitter enemy of ISIS — the network he pledged allegiance to the night of the carnage, Comey noted. The FBI’s Miami office opened an inquiry into Mateen. “He said he hoped that law enforcement would raid his apartment and assault his wife and child so he could martyr himself,” Comey said. Nevertheless, FBI investigators investigated Mateen, who was born in New York, for 10 months. They introduced him to confidential informants, spied on his communications and followed him. They also interviewed him twice.
Connections To Known Terrorists, FBI Informants, CIA Assets
Mateen was not only connected to Mohammed Abu Salha, he also maintained ties with Marcus Dwayne Robertson, a notoriously violent radical Muslim/CIA Asset. The Daily Mail describes Robertson in the article, “Orlando terrorist connected to radical Muslim cleric who was released from prison last year after he converted 36 people in jail and ‘runs a website used to dispense his teachings,” by writing. Robertson, who is also known as Abu Taubah to his thousands of followers, converted at least 36 people to his version of Islam while he was imprisoned for four years in jail.
Early Sunday authorities brought Robertson, who was living in Florida, along with several other associates in for questioning.
According to Fox News, a law enforcement source said: ‘It is no coincidence that this happened in Orlando. Mateen was enrolled in (Robertson’s online) Fundamental Islamic Knowledge Seminary.’
Police believe that Robertson’s Timbuktu Seminary is used to dispense his radical teachings, sources told Fox News.
Robertson, who was a former US Marine and undercover FBI agent before turning into a radical Imam, was released from prison last year despite warning from officials and prosecutors that he would recruit people to carry out horrendous acts of violence. He was considered so dangerous that he was kept shackled with his own security detail away from other inmates. Whenever he was transported to court, authorities had a seven-car caravan of armed federal marshals escort him.
He was eventually moved to solitary confinement after prison officials discovered that he was trying to radicalize his fellow inmates.
After serving as a Marine for six years, Robertson, 47, went on to become a bank robber, before turning FBI informant after his arrest in exchange for a short prison sentence. He was dismissed by the FBI in 2007 after allegedly attacking his CIA handler, and then began preaching Islamic extremism. He was thrown in jail for tax fraud back in 2011, prosecutors attempted to have ten years added to his sentence last year after discovering documents preaching terror among his possessions. However, a judge released him.
Robertson has openly preached against homosexuality, as wiretaps from 2011 proved that he instructed one of his students to file fake tax returns to get a refund to pay for travel to Mauritania for terror training. According to Fox News, federal law enforcement officials have been familiar with Robertson since as early as 1991. Robertson became the leader of a New York gang known as ‘Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves’ and robbed more than 10 banks, private homes and post offices at gunpoint. They shot three police officers and also attacked an officer after he suffered injuries from a homemade pipe bomb.
In that same period, authorities claimed that Robertson, who was known as ‘Ali Baba,’ also ‘served as a bodyguard to Omar Abdel Rahman, who led the terrorist group that carried out the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center,’ Fox News reported. When he was arrested in 1991 he cut a deal with prosecutors who let him serve four years in prison before he went to work undercover for the FBI in 2004 to document terrorists’ plans in Africa and the United States. Thus, the best efforts of the FBI, CIA, and their media mouthpieces are to attempt to convince readers that Robertson was a legitimate radical Muslim (aside from his ties to the U.S. military, FBI, and CIA) but that he was simply too much of a loose cannon to be used as an informant and was therefore cut loose from the program.
This claim would actually mean two things: First, Robertson may have been a loose cannon but he was still willing to work as an informant. Secondly, despite his being known as a radical jihadist with a notorious criminal history, he was released from prison on numerous occasions having served less time than many with simple drug offenses to their names. In reality, however, the story purporting to show Robertson as a legitimate terrorist are most cover for what was and still is a CIA/FBI asset.
It should also be noted that Robertson was known to have acted as the bodyguard for Omar Abdel Rahman, the alleged leader of the terrorist group that carried out the World Trade Center bombing in 1993, another “sting” operation that resulted in a terrorist attack going live.
Crisis Actors used? (from Henry Makow)
- Omar Mateen – The alleged Pulse nightclub shooter, Omar Mateen, has been, since 2007, an employee of the world’s largest security firm, G4S, which does contract work for the US Government. Omar Mateen’s father, Siddique Mir Mateen, is a top official in Afghanistan who has close ties to the US Government and the CIA. Omar Mateen performed as an actor in The Big Fix (2012), a dramatized documentary about the BP oil spill. Omar Mateen’s employer, the global security firm G4S, has confirmed that Omar Mateen appeared in The Big Fix.
- Christopher Hansen (Bjorn Jiskoot, Jr) – Survivor Christopher Hansen, who is described by the media as the Pulse “hero”, gave several interviews the following day “at the scene”, but he was actually interviewed in a TV studio in front of a green screen. Christopher Hansen has been identified as an actor named Bjorn Jiskoot, Jr, who has performed in low-budget horror films.
- 3) Norman Casiano (Luis Burbano) – The survivor Norman Casiano has been identified as an actor named Luis Burbano, whose acting website features head shots and his acting resume. He appeared in The Sacred (2009). Norman Casiano (Luis Burbano) said that he saw a bullet four inches long sticking out of a victim’s leg. There are no small arms bullets that are four inches long.
- Christine Leinonen – The bereaved mother Christine Leinonen was interviewed “at the scene”, but actually, both she and the news presenter are performing in front of a TV studio green screen. The indoor TV studio lights are reflected on the surface of her glasses. Christine Leinonen made an audition video in which she talked about her acting ability, and about how she wanted to perform on the TV show “Wheel of Fortune”. No death certificate, nor any death record, for Christine Leinonen’s alleged son Christopher has appeared on the Internet.
- Patience Carter – Survivor Patience Carter is an intern, and a news presenter, for Fox News.
- The team of “famous”, but undocumented, trauma surgeons – The members of the team of “famous trauma surgeons” at the Orlando Regional Medical Center have any online history of videos, nor talks, nor patient reviews. Six surgeons could not possibly have coped with 44 gunshot trauma victims at once as they claim. The Youtube blogger named Concerned American explains that the Orlando Regional Medical Center has severe long-term financial deficits, and the Orlando Pulse shooting hoax may have been planned, in part, to improve the ORMC’s funding, and to boost its reputation as a regional trauma center.

Patsy Backs out of Same Day After-Event – A Parade Bombing at L.A. Pride Parade?
If James Wesley Howell were a genuine terrorist, you’d think there’d be one news item about his case in the two-and-a-half-months since he was ‘arrested’ June 12 in Santa Monica, CA, the day of the Orlando night club shooting. Howell told police he was turning himself in because he wanted protection. His story was that he had been assured by his recruiters that he would not be harmed in the shooting but, when he heard on the news that Omar Mateen, the lead gunman in the Orlando group, had been killed by sniper fire, he realized he was being set up as a patsy and would be killed.
According to two department sources, Howell called the Santa Monica police on Sunday morning claiming that he needed protection from the CIA. Howell further elaborated to the dispatcher stating that he “had been set up by the CIA – they are going to kill me.”
The anonymous police officers story cannot be independently verified, but circumstantial evidence supports it. For example:
- After the FBI took charge of the investigation, Police Chief Jacqueline Seabrooks changed her original report that Howell was part of a group of five people who intended to do harm at the gay-pride event in West Hollywood. Her altered report made no mention of anyone other than Howell.
- The web site that reported this story is still carrying the article without triggering legal action against it. That is significant because, if the story is false, immediate legal action would be expected. If it is true, Howell will be most likely killed or ‘disappeared’ to prevent him from talking, but the last thing the perpetrators would want is a public trial where witnesses can be called to testify.
Police found the following in his possession, items no freelance or ISIS terrorist would be able to assemble: “He had twenty-five (25) pounds of Shoc-Shot, an explosive used for blowing up targets by high velocity bullets most likely to cause a crowd widespread panic, and a possible escape by assailants in smoke and mass confusion. The two components needed to make the Shoc-Shot explosive had been mixed. Howell had an Anderson Manufacturing AM-115 .223- high velocity round caliber rifle. The rifle had a round in its chamber and additional rounds in a 30-round magazine attached to it. Another 30-round magazine was taped to the rifle. He had a .30-06 bolt-action rifle with a round in its chamber, and a high velocity .22-caliber Ruger semi-automatic pistol. He had a mass murdering commando assassin’s arsenal.”
If the ‘leaked story is true, James Wesley Howell was a CIA-sponsored “terrorist” who realized he was being double-crossed. He backed out and surrendered to local police before he could be murdered. Of course the MSM spun it that he was arrested.
James Wesley Howell may be the smoking gun that proves terror events worldwide are sponsored by intelligence agencies. He asked Santa Monica police for protection June 12, the morning of the Orlando “massacre.” He told them he was supposed to bomb the gay pride parade but had backed out when he learned Omar Mateen had been killed in Orlando. He said he had trained with Mateen at a CIA camp in Virginia.
According to the LA Times, “James Wesley Howell, 20, was charged in Clark County with child molestation of a girl under 14 years old on May 31 in Henryville, Ind. A warrant for his arrest was issued in the case, court records show. The girl was 12 years old, according to the criminal complaint…. The child molestation charges come a day after L.A. County prosecutors charged Howell with felony possession of explosives on a highway, possession of an assault weapon and possession of high-capacity magazines. The misdemeanor charge was possession of a firearm in a car.”
Why were no charges brought against him on Sunday or Monday? Were these trumped up charges to keep the patsy quieted? Perhaps the charges of child molestation are true and were used as leverage to get him to comply to the CIA for the planned false flag event? Or, maybe the guy actually is a ‘lone nut’ terrorist that wanted to kill homosexuals, even though he was bi-sexual himself? Will we ever know the truth here or will we be left to speculate?
While the information presented above may not be enough evidence to prove in the court of law that the Orlando attack was a false flag attack, it is reason enough to question the official story thus far. If this attack is indeed placed in the lap of ISIS, however, all fingers should immediately point to NATO and the Atlanticist Intelligence apparatus. It is they who control ISIS and they who bear the responsibility for its actions. If the attack is attributed to a lone jihadist nut the FBI has some serious explaining to do since it appears that the agency itself is the greatest initiator of terrorist activity inside American borders and is either the most incompetent anti-terror fighter in the U.S. or it is complicit in the attacks that take place.
Orlando False Flag: The mainstream media’s version of the Orlando shooting – RADICAL MUSLIMS HATE GAYS, PLEASE SUPPORT GUN CONTROL – falls apart under critical examination. In this book, nineteen leading public intellectuals contest the official version of the Orlando shooting. Some consider the evidence suggesting the event was a false flag; others discuss the historical and cultural background and deconstruct the media propaganda. Orlando False Flag also covers apparent follow-up events, including the shootings in Dallas, Baton Rouge and Munich, and the truck attack in Nice, France. Following on the heels of We Are NOT Charlie Hebdo and ANOTHER French False Flag, Orlando False Flag brings Kevin Barrett and colleagues’ trenchant critique of the “war on terror” back home to the USA. “Kevin Barrett is to be applauded for Orlando False Flag, his latest instant anthology false flag exposé. It presents a variety of sometimes clashing views. As such it’s an example of much-needed radical informational democracy in print, devoted once again to the key challenge of our time: vast manipulative deception by the American Empire.” – Barrie Zwicker, author of Towers of Deception: The Media Cover-up of 9/11
The Orlando Mass Casualty Event: Updated to document a total of 70 anomalies documented with 166 linked endnotes and to include as an appendix the letter sent via certified mail to FBI Director James Comey with a copy of the chapter in draft form. – – – I have executed a false flag operation – no one died – for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). The term “false flag” means nothing more or less than “not what it seems.” The FBI, our final line of defense against domestic treason or foreign covert operations on US soil, appears to have sacrificed its integrity and turned false flag terrorism into a budget-building campaign. – – – Bottom Line Up Front: Orlando was a false flag planned months in advance by the Obama-Biden Administration, and in my judgment, specifically by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), with the full complicity in advance of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Among the key indicators – I list seventy (70) of them with linked documentation in this publication – are these: 01 Omar Mateen did not expect to die – he was booked to fly on the 14th 02 Mateen has been groomed since 2011, probably by the Mossad pretending to be CIA, and including two upper-end trips to Saudi Arabia and beyond. 03 The responding police were ordered not to go after him inside the club 04 All medical matters are ludicrous, undocumented, an impossibility 05 All witnesses appear to be scripted, less the laughing winking cop 06 Three musical follow-ups were clearly developed in advance of the day 07 The event started at closing time; 7 of the 8 exits were not used. 08 All audio-visual evidence has been eradicated – nothing from the CCTVs in the club (over eight of them), nothing from individual cell phones, nothing from Mateen’s unscripted calls to his handler during the 3 hour stand-down, nothing from police scanner traffic during the entire period. 09 The FBI is known to have manufactured 175 domestic “terrorist” cases. – – – The following groups of anomalous questions are addressed: A.
