CALIFORNIAMARTY: DOJ pressed on decision to drop Orlando gunman from terror list FoxNews.com Published July 27, 2016 Key lawmakers are demanding an explanation for the FBI’s decision to drop Orlando nightclub shooter Omar Mateen from its terrorist watch list, despite signs the Orlando gunman had ties to radical Islam. In a Tuesday letter to the Department of Justice’s internal watchdog, the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs asked for a thorough examination of the agency’s “decision to add—and, later, to remove” Mateen from the Terrorist Screening database. Mateen killed 49 and wounded 53 inside a gay nightclub in Florida on June 12, and pledged his allegiance to ISIS during the attack. “It is unclear how the FBI made the decision to remove Mateen from the TSDB, despite the concerns that had been raised,” wrote committee chairman Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., pointing to multiple red flags linking the killer to terrorism in the years leading up to the attack. The FBI has said it initially added Mateen to the database in 2013 after he admitted he had ties to terrorist organizations, but removed him the following year - just days after a decision to close the preliminary investigation because of a failure to “substantiate” Mateen’s affiliation to terrorism. If he had not been taken off the terror list by the FBI he would not have been able to purchased the weapon used in the worst shooting on American soil!!!!
