And by partial, er, we mean only the parts that the Obama Administration and the like has deemed suitable for the world to see. The transcript, perhaps, released Monday morning starts and ends with “I pledge allegiance to redacted”.
Lynch, appeared on talk shows over the weekend confirming that transcripts from those three 911 calls Omar Mateen had with authorities would be released. But, per Lynch, the Obama admin “doesn’t want to feed into ISIS’s propaganda machine” by unredacting the highly redacted transcripts that show Mateen ‘s allegiance to ISIS and so on.
The redaction of the transcripts has led to legitimate concerns that the Obama Administration may be hiding something from the public. Some experts, including news outlets, have posed the question as to why the Obama administration would hide any information (if at all) in a situation like this one.
The redaction comes despite the fact that many actually already saw Mateen ‘s Facebook page, some of which, shared declarations like this one.
“I pledge my alliance to (ISIS leader) abu bakr al Baghdadi..may Allah accept me,” Mateen wrote in one post during the attack. “The real muslims will never accept the filthy ways of the west” …“You kill innocent women and children by doing us airstrikes..now taste the Islamic state vengeance.”
