Ten days after the worst terror attack on American soil since September 11, 2001, with the highest loss of life of any mass shooting in the nation’s history, the Attorney General of the United States, the top law enforcement officer in the country, is stumped.

As the Department of Justice continues to trip over itself hampering the investigation in attempts to deflect attention from the irrefutable facts – that the perpetrator, Omar Mateen, was a Muslim who committed the heinous act in furtherance of Islamic jihad – Loretta Lynch was forced to admit that she somehow has lost track of Mateen’s wife who may, in fact, be an accessory or coconspirator in the crimes.

At a press conference held in Orlando after Lynch met with victim families, survivors, and first responders, Lynch was asked by a reporter whether Noor Salman, Mateen’s wife, had left the state of Florida.


Presented with the direct question, Lynch had little option other than to admit, “Right now, I don’t know exactly the answer to that. I believe she was going to travel but I do not know exactly her location now.”

Lynch added that the FBI, which is actively involved in the investigation of the Saturday night massacre that took place at a gay nightclub in Orlando on June 12, is also unaware of Salman’s whereabouts.

The admission came as the AG faced an onslaught of criticism for redacting the religious content from transcripts of Mateen’s cellphone calls to 911 placed during the 3-hour standoff while he held clubgoers hostage.


Salman accompanied her husband on various shopping trips when he purchased the weapons and ammunition used to commit the terror attack, as well as numerous trips to the nightclub and Disneyworld so Mateen could scout the venues for targeting.

Salman was aware that her husband transferred the deed to their home to his brother for a nominal amount shortly before the attacks.

She faces federal and state charges for each of the 49 murders and 53 assaults with a deadly weapon on each of the people injured in the attack, in addition to conspiracy and terrorism charges if the FBI is able to prove prior knowledge of her husband’s intent.

A grand jury has been empaneled in Orlando, but in the event it recommends an indictment… Salman may have already escaped prosecution.
