What We Know About the Orlando Shooter (Father Ran for Presidency of Afghanistan)

Omar Saddiqui Mateen
The shooter at the Orlando gay bar where 50 have been killed and 53 injured has been identified as Omar Saddiqui Mateen.

WAPO reports:
The ex-wife of the 29-year-old man suspected of killing 50 people in a Orlando nightclub early Sunday said that he was violent and mentally unstable and beat her repeatedly while they were married.
The ex-wife said she met Omar Mateen online about eight years ago and decided to move to Florida and marry him.
At first, the marriage was normal, she said, but then he became abusive.
“He was not a stable person,” said the ex-wife, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because she feared for her safety in the wake of the mass shooting. “He beat me. He would just come home and start beating me up because the laundry wasn’t finished or something like that.”...

Mateen’s ex-wife said his family was from Afghanistan, but her ex-husband was born in New York. His family later moved to Florida.... I 
Mateen’s ex-wife said she was having a difficult time when she first met him and decided to move to Florida to be with him. The two married in March 2009 and moved into a 2-bedroom condominium in Fort Pierce, Fla., that Mateen’s family owned.

“He seemed like a normal human being,” she said, adding that he wasn’t very religious and worked out at the gym often. She said in the few months they were married he gave no signs of having fallen under the sway of radical Islam. She said he owned a small-caliber handgun and worked as a guard at a nearby facility for juvenile delinquents.

“He was a very private person,” she said.

The ex-wife said her parents intervened when they learned Mateen had assaulted her. Her father confirmed the account and said that the marriage lasted only a few months.
Her parents flew down to Fort Pierce and pulled her out of the house, leaving all her belongings behind. The ex-wife she said never had contact with Mateen again despite attempts by him to reach her.

“They literally saved my life,” she said of her parents.

According to Florida court records, the two formally divorced in 2011.

After learning about what happened in Orlando, she said: “I am still processing. I am definitely lucky.”
Via Gawker:
  Law enforcement sources told NBC News that Mateen declared his allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in a 911 call placed at the time of the shooting.

Via Brad Jaffy:
 Gunman's father tells NBC News his son got angry a couple months ago when he saw men kissing at Bayside in Miami.

[Matten's] father is a very active man.  He previously served as a director of the Islamic Center of Fort Pierce Inc.  He is or was involved in other businesses, including something known as Wonderworks Production, LLC with Desiree Mufson; the Durand Jirga, Inc., in which his two daughters are also involved; and something only a few months old called The Provisional Government of Afghanistan, Corporation.  He is unquestionably involved in the politics of Afghanistan, having even announced his candidacy for the President of Afghanistan in May 2015 through his Durand Jirga Show on the Payam-e-Afghan network.


  1. I live in same town as the attacker and even lived within mile of him. The fanatics can be anywhere. Just another reason to carry everywhere you go.
    Pretty good info here and

  2. The ex wife's parents flew down from where?

  3. WOW! Here we go AGAIN and gullible Joe and Josephine American will swallow this horse feces up hook, line and sinker. It's a win-win-win Obama admin, false flag operation; 1st, an AR weapon is used (we all KNOW how the Fuhrer can't wait to outlaw that particular gun and the ammo used by it), 2nd this nut-job mateen calls 911 in the midst of his shooting spree to pledge allegiance to ISIS??? And lastly (let's ALL be honest here) it happens at a packed (NO pun intended) gay night club. AR weapon, ISIS in America and gays gunned down in cold blood (can you say HATE Crime). ALL the boxes ARE checked for a political box office blow-out. Your soap box for the next couple months Mr Obammie...

    1. You forgot to check the battered wife, feminist box for Hillary....The question is why they are never deep-fried?

  4. Interviewed by the FBI (3) three times? So exactly WHAT are the criteria to move one from the 'person of interest' (deserving 3 interviews) to a 'person requiring some sort of action'? Pardon my brazeness here, but the FBI doesn't seem to have what it takes to properly identify potential domestic terrorists after interviewing the THREE times.

  5. Anyone remember "The Underwear Bomber" back in 2009? He also had a high-profile father, involved in business and politics in his native country. Even Osama Bin Laden had a father who was wealthy and powerful. I think I'm seeing a pattern here.

  6. The 'THEY' are not even trying anymore. This is too obvious.
