Skip to comments.Islamic connection to Las Vegas massacre quickly rejected by FBI

The shooter in Sunday nights mass slaughter of 59 concert goers in Las Vegas, identified as 64-year-old Stephen Craig Paddock, a man with no criminal history, is now being investigated for possible ties to Islamic terrorists.
At least 527 people were injured in what was described by Sheriff Joseph Lombardo as a well-coordinated attack.
ISIS claimed credit in an Arabic-language website, but authorities immediately tried to debunk the claim saying they had no evidence to support it.
We will investigate that down to the end, but thus far nothing has been found to connect Paddock to international terrorism, Lombardo said at one of four news conferences held Monday on the shooting.
We have determined, to this point, no connection to an international terrorist group, said an unidentified spokesman for the FBI in a brief statement at a news conference at 11:40 a.m. Monday in Las Vegas.
The questions stemmed from a Twitter posting by the group Site Intel Group that ISIS spokesman Amaq has claimed Paddock was one of its soldiers who converted to Islam months ago.

The statement, in Arabic, read, Attacker of the #Las_Vegas shooting is a soldier of the Islamic State and carried out the operation in response to targeting coalition countries, Jihadoscope, a cybermonitoring company that monitors jihadi activity, confirmed in a translation sent to Newsweek.
Michael S. Smith II, co-founder of terror analysis company Kronos Advisory, who regularly tracks ISIS activity, also confirmed to Newsweek the claim of responsibility and the claim about Paddocks conversion.
After media continued to discredit the ISIS claims, the terrorist organization doubled down by sending out...

Well, isn't that special. The FBI can tell us all within minutes that the shooter has "no connection" to Islam or terrorism. In fact, they go out of their way to "debunk" the claims of ISIS themselves.
But the FBI cannot tell us definitively that after 2 years of investigations, illegal wire tapping/unmasking and surveillance by former Obama officials, a Special Counsel and his 20 partisan prosecutors, two Congressional investigations, and millions of dollars spent - that Trump had not "colluded" with the Russians to steal the election from Hillary.
But the "authorities" are Johnny on the Spot to tell us this guy had no left-wing or Islamic connections.
Not an avid gun guy at all where the hell did he get automatic weapons? He has no military background, gunmans brother says pic.twitter.com/EMSKLQGYFM

World Nut Daily has never been a trusted site.
That’s even faster than Comey not going after Hillary!
the Muslims then repeated their claim of responsibility
and a British analysis of all their claims reports that their claims are almost always proven correct, that the Muslim terrorist gangsters are careful not to over-claim lest they ‘lose credibility” (as murderous Muslim terrorists, of course)
we will see if the obvious proves correct or if it was something else this time................like, what?
another case of Obama’s “workplace displeasement”? or
maybe this time its “peptic upset” or
just a case of “constipation angst” perhaps?
For example, in this case we quickly found out that:
1) The shooter(s) was/were from ISIS
2) The shooter(s) was/were from antiFa
3) The shooter(s) was/were from BLM
4) The shooter was a lone wolf
It was also good to find out that the suspect was most likely using a belt-fed fully automatic machine gun of various makes and calibers.
And he went through a waterfall of money of unknown origin for a long time.
My gut keeps saying....”Fast & Furious”.
WND is a conservative, pro-christian, and pro-American site. Most media could not carry their jockstrap. Go away. I don’t have time for trolls today.
They don’t even know for sure who shot him. Western resort areas are full of foreign immigrant residents and foreign immigrants and visitors working in services and vacationing.
Mine says Newtown Martian, Joker Boy and all. Interesting, how in more than one of the bizarre, paradoxical cases so far, the mass murderers had the ID of a relative or mate on or near the site of the mass murders (Lanza’s brother’s ID and Paddock’s girlfriend’s credit/debit card).
Possibly a little too quickly...
So...You don’t have time or the intelligence to to leave WND? I bet you like Downtrend.com.
I just saw that reported on FOX News. They said the casino confirmed he was making huge bets these last few days. Tens and tens of thousands of dollars.
It could be he was draining his life savings, because he expected to die. Or, it could mean he was spending his ISIS money. But for the FBI to quickly give us this "No Connection!!" BS is just too much.
Go away troll.
Is there a trusted site?
The most significant piece of evidence that this guy was involved with isis is the fact that the FBI tells us there is no connection.
“Is there a trusted site?”
I hear you!
Is there ever? But some make that most)...are better than WND.
Go away little Richard.
Look! The concern troll from the other thread gets around!
