What a tangled web we weave...
Turns out that attack on a gay nightclub wasn't an attack on a gay nightclub at all, or at least its motivation wasn't. This was revealed after a Florida court ordered the release of the transcripts that were kept secret by the FBI. The domestic terrorist behind the Orlando nightclub massacre was motivated by a Pentagon drone strike in Iraq a month before the shooting.
“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. At other points, Mateen told the negotiator that the United States needed to stop all bombing in Iraq and Syria.
No, it wasn't about Islam at all, right?
Clinton lies, Trump lies, Government lies, the Police lie, the Media lie... face it, we live in a world of Pinocchios. What's exceptionally sad isn't that people lie, it's that we let them. How many of you liberals won't vote for Clinton because of her lies, how many of you conservatives won't vote for Trump because of his?
Sadder still? We're all lying to ourselves.
