Pulse gunman’s wife: I knew he was going to Orlando to attack

A handwritten statement given to the FBI by the wife of Pulse nightclub gunman Omar Mateen says she saw him prepare for the deadly attack for months and knew that the LGBT nightclub was his target.

The 12-page statement, quietly released by federal authorities at the end of December in a batch of records in the case, was taken hours after the June 12, 2016 shooting. The attack left 49 dead and dozens of others injured. Noor Salman was questioned for hours, without a lawyer, after authorities learned her husband was the gunman behind the attack.

    If this was obtained without her having a lawyer present you can bet it will be tossed in court. However it does bring up something the so called alt-right has been saying sometimes tongue in cheek and other times seriously, “A radical muslim is the one that goes out and commits these acts and a moderate is one that knows about these attacks and doesn’t report them”. Thanks to the present rules in western legal systems this will be tied up in courts for years, so long in fact even the SJWs that crawl out of the woodwork to support her will move on to other causes, and very little will come of this.

    There must be some especially backward, theocratic, woman-oppressing hell-hole to which this one could be deported.
