-Obama Administration’s ‘Edited’ Orlando Tape Controversy

by Dr. D ~ June 21st, 2016

The Obama administration continues with its narrative that Islam has nothing at all to do with radical terrorist events like Orlando, it’s all about guns. In keeping with that view the Justice Department published a highly edited transcript between the Orlando terrorist and a 911 operator with all references to ‘ISIS’ and ‘Allah’ blocked out:

Orlando Police Dispatcher (OD): Emergency 911, this is being recorded.
Shooter (OM): In the name of God the Merciful, the beneficial [in Arabic]
OD: What?
OM: Praise be to God, and prayers as well as peace be upon the prophet of God [in Arabic]. I let you know, I’m in Orlando and I did the shootings.
OD: What’s your name?
OM: My name is I pledge of allegiance to [omitted].
OD: Ok, What’s your name?
OM: I pledge allegiance to [omitted] may God protect him [in Arabic], on behalf of [omitted].
OD: Alright, where are you at?
OM: In Orlando.
O
D: Where in Orlando?
[
End of call.]

On Sunday,  Attorney General Loretta Lynch appeared on a number of TV news programs announcing that the administration would be releasing partial transcripts on Monday with some references blocked out:

"What we’re not going to do is further proclaim this man’s pledges of allegiance to terrorist groups, and further his propaganda," Lynch said. "We are not going to hear him make his assertions of allegiance [to the Islamic State]."

Obviously the administration thought that the media would go along and support them in this farce but for once they were wrong and the whole thing blew up in their faces. By Monday afternoon they were forced to release a less redacted version:

Response: Notice that the newest version may include a reference to ISIS but still blocks the terrorist’s obvious reference to ‘Allah’ of Islam. As it stands, a ‘Christian’ could have made the first statement about ‘God.’ In fact I am quite sure if the terrorist claimed to be a Christian and said that his actions were ‘in the name of Jesus Christ’ we would have a full and complete transcript. Not only that, but the full blame would go to ‘homophobic’ conservative Christians that ‘cling to their guns and religion.’

Even though the terrorist himself proclaimed an allegiance to ISIS and referenced Allah and the prophet of Islam, the President still maintains that this terrorist event was the actions of an unrelated non-directed single gun toting individual:

"We see no clear evidence that he was directed externally," the president added. "It does appear that at the last minute, he announced allegiance to ISIL. But there is no evidence so far that he was in fact directed by ISIL, and at this stage there’s no direct evidence that he was part of a larger plot."

These people (the President and his administration) are supposed to be among the brightest and smartest in America? ISIS announced last month that all faithful American Muslims should attack non-believing fellow Americans but because there appears to be no ‘direct’ communication between ISIS leaders and the Orlando terrorist this latest terrorist event is unrelated to ISIS and Islam no matter what the terrorist himself said?

Do they really believe this or do they think that Americans are really that stupid? Apparently so, since they continue to maintain the narrative that it has nothing to do with radical Islam and it is all about guns. Forget the fact that box cutters killed over 3,000 on 9/11/2001.              *Top

    Dr. D — Do you recall the Norwegian terror attacks of July 22, 2011? First, there was a car bomb detonation. The main stream media immediately started cautioning people “this could be Islamic terror, but let us not jump to conclusions.”

    A short time later, a Norwegian man (Anders Brevik) attacked a Norwegian Labor Party youth camp. The shooter mailed a huge manifesto to media and government outlets all over Norway. The initial reaction was (and I quote), “The gunman is a fundamentalist Christian”.

    Here is a second quote: Deputy police chief Roger Andresen initially told reporters that “We have no more information than … what has been found on [his] own websites, which is that it goes towards the right and that it is, so to speak, Christian fundamentalist.”

    here is another quote: “At first, the media called Anders Behring Breivik a Christian fundamentalist, some of them even a Roman Catholic. This shows the cavalier use of the word ‘fundamentalist’ prevailing today in several quarters.” See Massimo Introvigne, “The Identity Ideology of Anders Brevik” Centro Studi sulle Nuove Religioni

    When you read the manifesto in full, however, Brevik rejected the idea that he was a Christian – but he saw Christianity as a useful cultural tool to use to obtain his cultural and political goals.

    Naturally, there was a rush to media judgment that Brevik was a Christian and, more specifically, a “fundamentalist” Christian (of which there are lots and lots in Norway). Once the full story was out, any retraction was buried in a paragraph deep in a follow-up article.

    Nothing has changed.

    Brian, Thanks for the recollection. Even after the recent Islamic terrorist event a DHS conference was referencing ‘right-wingers’ including conservative Christians as a bigger threat than radical Muslims.

    I guess we are in fact a ‘bigger threat’ to their ideology and political causes but it is ridiculous to consider Christians as an actual ‘terrorist’ threat. But it does serve their narrative.

    Also Brian, can you imagine the uproar in the media if the Orlando terrorist claimed to be a ‘Christian’ and referenced the prophet Moses and cited Lev. 20:13 as justification for his actions. Nothing of the sort happened and still Christians were blamed by some.

    Here’s the real difference however. Not one regular Christian church or denomination would condone his actions or his application of OT scripture, nor would there be any Christians celebrating. But there were Muslims all around the world celebrating the deaths of 49 Americans and a normative teaching of the Quran by thousands of Muslim clerics would seem to justify what he did in the minds of at least 10-20% of Islam- that is a hundred million to 2 hundred million or more Muslims at the very least.

    Obviously different standards apply. There are still some in the media that like to claim that Timothy McVeigh was a ‘Christian’ since he was born into a Roman Catholic family even though he never referenced religion. Meanwhile Islamic terrorists reference Allah and Islam on every single occasion. But we are ‘Islamophobic’ if we dare to mention that tie and relationship to Islam.
