Orlando Terror Attack ‘Triggered’ by Pentagon Drone Strike

“Mateen killed 49 people during the attack on the Pulse, a gay nightclub, and wounded 53 others. Police eventually stormed the club and killed Mateen in a shootout after talks aimed at convincing him to surrender failed.

During an exchange in the early morning hours of June 12, an Orlando Police Department negotiator identified only as ‘Andy’ asked Mateen, who was speaking by cell phone from inside the club, to tell him what was going on.

‘Yo, the air strike that killed Abu Wahid a few weeks ago… that’s what triggered it, okay?’ said Mateen, who earlier in the conversation identified himself as a follower the Islamic State terror group.

‘They should have not bombed and killed Abu Wahid,’ the former security guard declared. ‘Do your fucking homework and figure out who Abu Wahid is, okay?’

Additionally, Mateen praised one of the bombers of the 2013 Boston Marathon, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, and another domestic terrorist whose name was transcribed as unintelligible in the released transcript.”
