Omar Mateen’s father, Seddique. He is many things. He is an immigrant. He is an outspoken supporter of the Taliban. He’s the father of an ISIS terrorist who murdered 49 Americans in cold blood and injured more than 50 more. He’s someone who has meetings with Obama Administration officials in the White House, people in the State Department, and senior Senate Democrats.
He’s also a guy who goes on television and blames the Pulse Nightclub for his son’s murder spree.
His theory is that the Pulse was not prepared for so many patrons that night. What does that have to do with anything? They weren’t prepared for a shooting? Were they supposed to be?
What did Seddique know and when do he know it?
What was he doing at the White House? Who did he meet with?
What was he doing at the State Department? Who did he meet with?
We know Seddique Mateen is a Taliban supporter, so we know what he was teaching his son – who he described as a “good son” – while he was growing up. What role, if any, did he play in the shooting that he thinks is the Pulse’s fault?
