New details have emerged about Omar Mateen – the terrorist who murdered 49 Americans at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando.

The new documents reveal his motivation behind the massacre.

And they expose a massive Obama cover up.

After the shooting, the Obama administration bent over backwards to withhold any information that would lead people to believe the attack was an act of radical Islamic terrorism.

At first, the Obama administration tried to get away with releasing edited transcripts which had censored out any mention of ISIS or jihad made by Mateen.

But public outrage forced Obama to backtrack.

This was also after Obama – once again – refused to call it a radical Islamic terror attack.

Now Americans are learning that Mateen had explained his reasons for launching the terrorist attack – and why the Obama administration hid it from them.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

“The domestic terrorist behind the Orlando nightclub massacre was motivated by a Pentagon drone strike in Iraq a month before the shooting, according to police transcripts made public last week.

Conversations between Omar Mateen and an Orlando police negotiator on June 12 were kept secret by FBI and local police until Friday. The secrecy contributed to misleading media accounts of the terrorist’s motives in the days after the killings.

The transcripts were released by Orlando police Friday after a Florida court hearing held in response to a lawsuit filed by several news organizations…

During an exchange in the early morning hours of June 12, an Orlando Police Department negotiator identified only as “Andy” asked Mateen, who was speaking by cell phone from inside the club, to tell him what was going on.

“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 in the released transcript.”

Obama tried to hide the terrorist’s motives because another jihadist attack on our soil would have exposed his failed policies.

Obama has cozied up to Islamists by emptying the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay and refusing to call radical Islam by its name – and it’s done nothing to stem the tide of attacks on Americans.

If anything, many critics argue Obama’s weakness has emboldened the enemy.

These critics contend that Obama cannot seriously confront an enemy he refuses to name.

The Free Beacon reports Obama withheld the documents for fear of fueling copycat attacks:

“The secrecy surrounding the transcripts of Mateen’s comments appears based on Obama administration fears that publicizing the jihadist’s statements would fuel further attacks.

The administration has sought to play down domestic ISIS-inspired terror attacks as disconnected from the Islamic ideology. The number of ISIS-linked attacks has increased over the past year.

FBI and Orlando police spokesmen declined to comment when asked why the full transcript was not made public earlier.

Heather Fagan, deputy chief of staff in the Orlando mayor’s office, said the transcripts were withheld by the FBI during the Joint Terrorism Task Force investigation and released last week.

“The Department of Justice and the FBI recently advised the city of the FBI’s determination that the 911 calls no longer need to be protected as their release would not compromise the ongoing investigation into the Pulse nightclub massacre,” she told the Free Beacon.

The FBI and Justice Department released a partial transcript of the calls June 20—eight days after the attack. But those transcripts made no reference to the Iraqi airstrike that killed Wahid, or the Boston Marathon bomber.”

Critics argue that Obama’s attempt to appease radical Islamic terrorism only encourages future attacks.
