More information is flooding in about the gunman who murdered 5 people and wounded 18 in a Florida airport.
Esteban Santiago-Ruiz, 26, allegedly “argued” with passengers on a fliught from Alaska, where he is a resident, then retrieved a 9mm handgun from his luggage and gunned down 5 at the Ft. Lauderdale Airport baggage claim. Santiago-Ruiz, who was born in New Jersey, and raised in Puerto Rico, was a Iraq War veteran.
Authorities earlier said they were looking into possibility this was an “act of terror.” Now it looks like those fears may have just been confirmed.
In November 2016, during an investigation into his downloading of ISIS propaganda videos, he told FBI agents in their field office in Anchorage, AK claiming he was being forced to fight for ISIS.
But the FBI did not detain him. Instead they called Anchorage police, and he was sent to a psychiatric hospital, and released just weeks ago.
That’s right, Obama’s FBI let him go.
Here is a photo of Santago-Ruiz, in a camouflage keffiyah (war scarf of Islam), apparently giving the one-finger “ISIS salute” we have seen so frequently in Iraq and Syria.
It is unknown whether the gunman was a convert to Islam, or was radicalized after his service in the army. His family tonight is only calling him a “spiritual person.”
However, Gateway Pundit is reporting that Santiago-Ruiz lived just blocks from the only mosque in Alaska.
In 2011 or 2012, he was investigated for child porn by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Three weapons and a computer were seized but there was not enough evidence to prosecute.
UPDATE: An additional source is reporting that ISIS online sources mentioned Santago-Ruiz’s name before CNN or FoxNews reported it, similar to the aftermath of the San Bernardino attack in 2015, before the names of the assailants were discovered:

In typical form, the mainstream media is downplaying the possible terrorist angle, trying to frame the attack as a mentally-deranged veteran with PTSD who “snapped” at fellow passengers in a fit of “air rage.”
It is simply too early to know for sure. But after the lies and propaganda we have seen from the media during the 2016 campaign, Americans need to have all the facts in front of them before making up their own minds.
