WND You won't believe the 'warning that came before the attack
WASHINGTON – The case of Esteban Santiago, the 26-year-old shooter in the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport massacre, gets stranger by the minute.
He was already being prosecuted for attacking his girlfriend and attempting to strangle her. He even broke the terms of his release on that charge by entering her home again. But he was allowed to keep his gun.
He served in Iraq for the Army Reserves and the Alaska National Guard but was discharged for “unsatisfactory performance.”
He registered on MySpace under the name “Aashiq Hammad” and recorded Islamic religious music on the site three years before he ever deployed to Iraq. In 2007 he was posting on an explosives and weapons forum about mass-downloading Islamic terrorist propaganda videos.
He also downloaded three songs – one of them titled “La ilaha illAllah,” which is Arabic for “There is no God but Allah” – the first half of the Muslim declaration of faith, the Shahadah. He lived within walking distance of Alaska’s only mosque.
Investigators say he was planning the attack for some time – selling his possessions, including his car, and posting comments that, authorities say, indicate an extended period of preparation.
His family was pleading for help – warning of his instability, and friends in Alaska have told investigators that his behavior had grown erratic. His brother blames the FBI for letting him slip through their fingers.
Not exactly the boy next door who seemed so nice.
As a result of sheer federal government incompetence, once again, Santiago AKA Asshiq Hammad, was able to kill five and injure 6 in a shooting attack at the Florida airport Friday after all those “warning shots.”
A year ago this month, Santiago verbally assaulted his then girlfriend, a 40-year old mother of one child from a previous marriage, smashing through a locked bathroom door and telling her to “Get the f— out, bitch.”
After he forced his way in by breaking down the door, he smacked her in the head and attempted to strangle her. By the time police arrived, Santiago had fled the scene. Read more at http://www.wnd.com/2017/01/who-gave-this-guy-his-gun-back-twice/#IAThpyXOFkW0b4L5.99
