Lynch: FBI is whitewashing Mateen's 911 calls pledging aleagance to ISIS

LOL! Deleting the ISIS reference is the story now. Bringing more attention to it. It's the "Banned in Boston" dynamic. They're not even good propagandists.

How many people do you think are familiar with the concept of "living in denial".

This got to be it.

Gabriel Malor, an attorney tweets...

"Under Florida law, 911 records (with appropriate redaction of identifying info) are public records. So this is coming out eventually."

Leland said...

My first thought was along the lines of Malor. 911 calls are not just public records, but local records. Why does Lynch get to decide what gets released?

Otherwise, this is gaslighting by the administration, but I think it is going to come back to bite them. They are trying hard to sell the notion that Marteen's motives were not terrorist related, that he had nothing to do with international terrorism. But the stories from the past are coming out. The FBI investigated because he made terroristic threats in the past.

Kill the Bureau's credibility now so, when they start leaking the truth about Cacklepants and the mail server (and maybe Benghazi), they can say, "Well, look how they fudged stuff on Oralndo".

And how many believe it's the G-men who are going soft on IS?

When she gets in she can remake the Bureau in her own image.

On the radio in the car - AG Lynch is the one who wants to hide the whole transcript.

Not sure what to make of that.

Not wanting to let anyone hear this guy talk about his ties and allegiances to ISIS has Obama written all over it.

I get 911 tapes not redacted. They are public record. Some sensitive and horrible information. I still hear the screams of a dying child. Again, imagine if Bush did this.

Does the FBI have a spokesperson?

AJ Lynch said...

On TV shows, when the cops get someone's cell number, they are able to see who he has called pretty quickly yet they did not seem to know he was getting texts and calls from his wife during the crisis?

My guess is investigators don't divulge too much for the sake of the investigation and where it might lead.

The info about Mateen calling came from survivors, I believe.

Lem said...

At least initially.

What do you bet these tapes are "disappeared."

Which one of Alinski's rules says you should piss off and aggravate your political opponents as much as possible?

This is what aiding and abetting the enemy looks like.

Does this surprise anyone? Actions like this is what I've come to expect from this administration. I'll bet that the MSM also thinks that this is a good idea.

chick, The tapes won't disappear. I mean I hate these Obama folks but I don't go nuts about stuff. They are evidence. They will be retained. That said, I learned that in many counties, for non sinister reasons, the 911 Tapes are reused. I applaud that frugality. Dane County[Madison] and some of the surrounding counties, give you 90 days. All I need to do is put in a written request stating why the 911 tape should be retained. I simply need to say it is evidence in a case I'm working. It is retained until the case is settled or tried. Prior to putting the hold on the actual tape, I get copies of the tape. I've been doing this for decades. Prior to the ubiquity of cell phones, you would get maybe 3-5 calls regarding a fire, accident, etc. Now, HUNDREDS of calls in minutes. The calls tie up 911 dispatchers. It's a problem.

Allen, Many of the MSM are not saying the terrorists name any longer, ostensibly to not give him fame, or infamy. Funny, I hear Dylan Roof and Tim McVeigh all the time.
