'marginalized because of his Muslim faith'

Brace yourself, because your blood's about to boil. According to Fox News’ Catherine Herridge, the FBI performed a thorough 10-month investigation of Orlando shooter Omar Mateen.  As Herridge reports, "He told his co-workers that he had family connections to Al Qaeda, that he was a member of a Shia terrorism organization, and that he hoped law enforcement would raid his home and assault his wife so that he could then retaliate and martyr himself." 

Here's the really bad part:

The FBI dropped its inquiry because they apparently believed his terror threats were simply a response to “being marginalized because of his Muslim faith.” Mateen was then removed from the terror watchlist.

That's right, the concerns and complaints of vigilant accusers were dismissed as the rantings of anti-Muslim bigots and Omar Mateen was free to go about his deadly business. 

The extent of the federal government's politically correct failure was revealed during a closed door meeting with FBI director James Comey on Monday.

Here's the report.

 

Remember; this is the same government that promises it will protect you when you give up your 2nd Amendment rights. Anyone feeling confident in their abilities?
