Loretta Lynch Won’t Release Full Orlando 911 Transcripts, Here’s Why…
The Obama Administration took another stab at political correctness Monday in an effort to try and continue Obama's strong policy of not calling the recent murders in Orlando acts of terrorism by radical Islamists. Lorretta Lynch, Obama's Attorney General, initially said that she wasn't going to release the full 911 transcripts. That idea, however, met with some stern resistance.
Lynch said that by releasing the full transcripts of what Omar Mateen, the security guard who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State and murdered almost 50 people in an Orlando nightclub, the Department of Justice would simply be furthering his cause.
"What we're not going to do is further proclaim this man's pledges of allegiance to terrorist groups, and further his propaganda. We are not going to hear him make his assertions of allegiance [to ISIS.]"
Lynch didn't want to hear his "assertions of allegiance"?
Thankfully ABC later tweeted out at least a partial transcript of what Mateen said when he called the 911 dispatcher during the middle of his murderous rampage.
Here's part of what Mateen said:
"Praise be to God, and prayers as well as peace upon the prophet of God. I wanna let you know, I'm in Orlando and I did the shootings." Mateen later said, when asked for his name, "my name is I pledge allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi of the Islamic State."
That's about as clear as it can get, folks. The fact that Lynch was initially trying to propagate Obama's faulty reasoning that not talking about Islamic radicalism will make the problem go away, is ridiculous.
Lynch, the Department of Justice, and the FBI left out the parts where Mateen pledged allegiance to specific groups of ISIS as well as the part of the transcript where he identified himself.
Because the liberals in Washington don't believe that we can handle the truth. We need to let them know that we deserve the truth and all of it. No more of these redacted, edited transcripts. We want the whole truth and we want it now!
