Gee, no one saw that coming. Except, like, everyone but the Feds.
Loretta Lynch Admits That Federal Authorities Have Lost The Orlando Shooter’s Wife
As US Attorney General Loretta Lynch said today, federal authorities are going back and looking at all of the contact with Omar Mateen, as well as those around him in order find out if there is anything that was missed.
However there is one rather large problem with one key person in the investigation, it appears that Noor Salman is missing and may not even be in the state of Florida anymore. In an interview the Sun Sentinel conducted with Seddique Mateen, the shooter’s father, Seddique said that Salman was “not around here.”
Lynch said the following in response to an inaudible question: “right now I do not know exactly the answer to that, I believe she was going to travel but I do not know exactly her location now”
Consider that: A suspect in a terrorism investigation, whom they knew to be planning a trip, and they didn’t track her. I wonder if they even added her to to no-fly list, or if she’s already left the country.
No doubt she’s traveling with that mysterious $9,000 of jewelry. Which she’s keeping solely for the sentimental value, a reminder of her beloved jihadi husband, and not the whole portable wealth thing. You know, when you fly out of the country, they ask about how cash you’re taking, but not jewelry.
There is the possibility that she waltzed into her friendly neighborhood jihad base and training center, err, mosque. But they would of course turn her in, right away.
