    Federal agents over the weekend arrested a Pinellas Park man described as having extremist jihadist beliefs who wanted to blow up a target in Tampa and create "terror" in victims' hearts. "I want to do something terrifying," he said, according to a federal complaint, "like one day, one night, something's going to happen. Then six hours later, something else." Sami Osmakac, 25, was taken into custody after an FBI sting operation in which he tried to buy explosives, at least 10 grenades, Uzis and an AK-47, authorities said. Osmakac's intended target shifted over the course of the investigation, which spanned...

    (Original title too long: Muslim Suicide Bomber Take 50 Germans Hostage At Theater, The Police Blast Him Just Before He Blows Himself Up- The Middle East Is Now In Central Europe). This was a close call. Thank God for the swift action of German policemen who saved these 50 people. But there will be another time, and next time might be too late, especially since the German media is already trying to say the man had ‘no identifiable links to radical Islam’: An armed man who was gunned down by the police at a cinema complex in Viernheim, western Germany,...

    Mateen was a 'known quantity' to federal law enforcement before he killed 53 people in the worst mass shooting in U.S. history. Omar Mateen of Port Saint Lucie, Florida, came to the attention of federal authorities twice prior to being identified as the gunman in the Orlando nightclub mass shooting, a senior law enforcement source told The Daily Beast. [Snip] The senior law enforcement source reports that Mateen became a person of interest in 2013 and again in 2014. The Federal Bureau of Investigation at one point opened an investigation on Mateen but subsequently closed the case when it produced...

    Fox News was told the relationship as well as the Mateen case in general are "very complex" but would not go further, citing the sensitivity of the FBI investigation and classified information. The source said the bomber's return to Florida in 2013 is under fresh scrutiny as well. Mateen’s name surfaced twice for FBI investigators in the run-up to the attack. After the first, full FBI investigation of Mateen concluded in March 2014, his name surfaced two months later in a second, separate FBI investigation of American suicide bomber Moner Abu-Salha -- who drove 16 tons of explosives into a...
