FBI contradicts media reports on Orlando shooting: Mateen not gay; police shot victims

The media tell us that:

  1. Orlando gay-club shooter Omar Mateen was gay — his ex-wife said he was; Mateen frequented Pulse gay club, used gay dating apps, and had male “lovers”.
  2. Mateen was the lone gunman who had killed 49 and wounded 53 by the time police finally broke into Pulse nightclub after 3 hours of negotiations.

The only problem is this: Both purported truths are contradicted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

#1: Mateen was not gay

Molly Hennessy-Fiske reports for the Los Angeles Times, June 23, 2016, that the FBI has found no evidence so far to support claims by those who say Mateen had gay lovers or communicated on gay dating apps, several law enforcement officials said.

FBI investigators also do not find the testimony of “Miguel” credible. “Miguel” was the man wearing a disguise to conceal his identity who told Univision that he had sex with Mateen after meeting him on the gay dating app, Grindr. “Miguel” also said Mateen had sex with other men too, including a threesome with a Puerto Rican who allegedly told Mateen, after having had unprotected sex with him, that he was HIV positive.

In seeking to verify the reports of Mateen’s homosexuality, federal agents have culled the alleged shooter’s electronic devices, including a laptop computer and cellphone, as well as electronic communications of those who had claimed Mateen was gay. But the FBI found no photographs, no text messages, no smartphone apps, no gay pornography and no cell-tower location data to suggest that Mateen — who was twice married to women and had a young son — conducted a secret gay life.

Nor has the FBI uncovered any direct links between Mateen and members of Islamic State, although it is possible that Mateen might have had communications on cellphones or other electronic equipment that have not been recovered by investigators.

Cord Cedeno, 23, a Pulse regular who insisted he had seenMateen at Pulse months before the shooting and messaged with him on Grindr for a short time, Cedeno said he has no reason to doubt accounts from other Pulse regulars who also said they had seen Mateen visit the club in the past. Cedeno said, “I can go take a lie detector test. I know for a fact Omar messaged me,” and accuses the FBI of “obviously . . . trying to cover up their information.”

#2: Mateen didn’t shoot anyone before police entered

We were told that at 2:02 a.m. on Sunday, June 12, 2016 outside Pulse gay dance club, Omar Mateen first exchanged gunfire with the club’s security officer and two “nearby” police officers, then entered the club where he shot or wounded 102 people before police, after 3 hours, finally broke into the club and killed Mateen in a shootout.

But if we go by the FBI’s report, either Mateen did not shoot anyone inside the club, or no club patron was killed or wounded.

According to the FBI Tampa Division’s report on the Orlando shooting, “Investigative Update Regarding Pulse Nightclub Shooting,” June 20, 2016, the following is the timeline of the shooting, based on Orlando Police Department (OPD) radio communication (times are approximate):

  • 2:02 a.m.: OPD call transmitted multiple shots fired at Pulse nightclub.
  • 2:04 a.m.: Additional OPD officers arrived on scene.
  • 2:08 a.m.: Officers from various law enforcement agencies made entrance to Pulse and engaged the shooter.
  • 2:18 a.m.: OPD SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics) initiated a full call-out.
  • 2:35 a.m.: Shooter contacted a 911 operator from inside Pulse. The call lasted approximately 50 seconds [….]
  • 2:48 a.m.: First crisis negotiation call occurred lasting approximately nine minutes.
  • 3:03 a.m.: Second crisis negotiation call occurred lasting approximately 16 minutes.
  • 3:24 a.m.: Third crisis negotiation call occurred lasting approximately three minutes. […]
  • 4:21 a.m.: OPD pulled an air conditioning unit out of a Pulse dressing room window for victims to evacuate. […]
  • 4:29 a.m.: As victims were being rescued, they told OPD the shooter said he was going to put four vests with bombs on victims within 15 minutes. (An immediate search of the shooter’s vehicle on scene and inside Pulse ultimately revealed no vest or improvised explosive device.)
  • 5:02 a.m.: OPD SWAT and OCSO Hazardous Device Team began to breach wall with explosive charge and armored vehicle to make entry.
  • 5:14 a.m.: OPD radio communication stated that shots were fired.
  • 5:15 a.m.: OPD radio communication stated that OPD engaged the suspect and the suspect was reported down.

The FBI report then says:

Based on OPD radio communications, there were no reports of shots being fired inside Pulse between the initial exchange of gunfire between responding officers and shooter, and the time of the final breach. During this time, the shooter communicated with an OPD 911 operator and an OPD crisis negotiator, and OPD radio communications reported that victims were being rescued.

Below is a screenshot I took of the above paragraph. (I cropped out the timeline, highlighted the paragraph with a red bracket, and painted the red arrow pointing to the time and date when I took the screenshot.)

In other words, according to the FBI, between 2:02 a.m. (when Mateen exchanged fire with Pulse security and police officers at the front door of the nighclub, before he entered the clu) and 5:02 a.m. when police breached the club’s walls and entered Pulse, NO SHOTS WERE FIRED INSIDE Pulse nightclub.

It now makes sense that the police had waited 3 hours before breaching the club. If Mateen indeed had shot people inside the club, it was unconscionable for the police to wait that long before entering — wounded victims would have bled to death. According to the FBI report, however, Mateen hadn’t shot anyone but was keeping some of the club patrons hostage in a bathroom, which led to police negotiating with him for 3 hours.

Here’s Judge Andrew Napolitano pointing out that according to the FBI report, no one died at Pulse until 5:13 a.m. that morning:

So who actually shot the victims? Here’s a clue, as reported by the Daily Mail on June 13, 2016:

He [Omar Mateen] first had a shootout with the off-duty officer at the club’s entrance.

Then two other officers arrived and the firing continued. […]

But authorities chose to hold off on letting the tactical units enter Pulse nightclub, where more than 100 people were shot.

[Orlando] Police Chief John Mina has also admitted that some of the victims may have been hit by officers’ gun fire. 

John MinaAll of which means either of two things actually happened:

  1. Omar Mateen didn’t intentionally kill or wound anyone. Rather, 49 people were killed and 53 wounded in the exchange of fire between the police and Mateen, some of whom by the police; or
  2. No one at Pulse, except Mateen, was killed or wounded.

And then, there’s a third possibility, which is that no one died, not even Mateen. Has anyone seen his death certificate, his body, his funeral?

In the event the FBI scrubs the report, here it is archived.

  1. Google “The FBI polygraphers will clean-up this mess” — Trust no one in the FBI… except the FBI polygraphers.


    • When the FBI conducted a witch hunt against Dr. Steven Hatfill, based on his writing a science fiction novel of an anthrax scare and a jealous co-worker’s hearsay allegation, DEPOSITIONS of key FBI actors revealed the dirty tricks and cover-up in that case. Hatfill’s attorney, a former AUSA, obtained a 5.5 million dollar verdict. That got Congressional interest and the Director got grilled in an open session. I think here and in Sandy Hook, and similar events, we need judicial standing and lawsuits (including FOIA litigation) to expose the cockroaches’ crimes exposed to the light of day.

  3. Now that he is deceased Omar Mateen’s FBI file, for events pre-dating the “ongoing investigation” of the Pulse shooting, are subject to FOIA. Maybe cops did gun down the victims in the night club because Mateen blended in with them. However, in 2013 Mateen made a terrorist threat to a court officer that led to an attempt by FBI to entrap Mateen in a conspiracy case. Using standard COINTELPRO tricks, watch listing and gang stalking, these records could provide a context and motive for the Orlando shooting.

  4. This additional news makes this affair stink like last month’s kettle of rotting fish! I wonder if we will ever know the truth. Thank goodness we have Dr Eowyn keeping us up on the latest information about this tragedy.

  6. I first noticed it with the Sandy Hook debacle: The news reports are contradictory, or, there is so much information that it is almost impossible for me to put all the pieces together. Long Story Short: We’re being programmed and conditioned to being lied to, in more ways than one. First it was about economic theories. Then it was the assassinations of the 1960’s. Then Viet Nam. And on and on.
    Expect these false flag events to continue. Expect both local and Federal agencies to lie, to twist the truth, to distort, to selectively omit crucial information, or to provide elements to the events out of the sequence in which they occurred. They’re out to confuse us so we cannot think straight.
    God Knows they’ve already done this with 9/11 and Sandy Hook.

    The more I read about the CIA and Tavistock and their programs of mind-control and conditioning, the more I realize there is much more to learn. But beneath all the politics and public reactions, there is always the magic: We are being constantly bombarded with demands to “look over here” while they’re doing something else out of eyesight. This is extremely important and no mere footnote: The key agencies of our Government have people in them who are, for all practical purposes, overt Satanists. In addition to their sexual perversions, they rely on magic; David Icke is one of the few who explores this.

    The false flag events, the shootouts, the lies and the politics and the magic and the destruction of evidence shall continue. Great post, Dr. Eowyn and keep up the good work.

  7. Anyone who resides outside of Connecticut making a modest $20 donation to a Sandy Hooker fund could sue that fund for Fraud in their local federal court based on diversity jurisdiction.

  8. Former CIA Robert David Steele goes into the details of 68 anomalies in an article at phibetaiota.net with links to the sources. He senses Israel was behind it, quite possibly with Mossad posing as CIA, and sure enough, Netanyu gives a speech with 15 million YouTube views alone, 911 redivivus, that we’re all in this fight against terror and hate together as democracies, blah, blah, blah. The probability Orlando was not a false flag involving Israeli given its involvement in 911 approaches Zero.

  10. Amidst the stealth, lies, threats and bribery, they do make mistakes. It’s our responsibility to spread this information and examples of proof as best we can to the naysayers and those who are still asleep.

  11. Obama's boyfriend

    Given this administration I am sure the FBI would say the jihaddie wasn’t gay. In fact, wasn’t he really a Swedish Lutheran? I mean who can doubt the FBI under Obama’s thumb?

  12. Good information here. These are getting very sloppy. That or the spell has been broken. It seems they don’t care how fake it appears. Peekay Truth youtube channel has a few clips that seal it. One catches the club’s internet lineup with nothing scheduled the night this supposedly happened. Another clearly shows crisis actors in their staging area before their walks in front of the camera. Stay vigilant!

  13. If one looks at the timeline, there is plenty of time and opportunities for mateen to shoot people. He has an hour at one point. You can shoot 100 people in that time. Two questions arise: Why didn’t they leave? And: Were some escaping during the three hour period? According to a layout of the building that appeared in the NYT, there are two visible ingress/egress points to the building. There may have been more. Perhaps a backdoor. After all, what kind of gay night club is it that doesn’t have a backdoor? It would be difficult to cover both simultaneously, especially while talking on the phone. The strangest part of this story is that this gay night club had separate bathrooms for men and women.


  14. Has anyone every seen a Swat team sit around for 3 hours and twiddle their thumbs. It stinks and so will their cover. The guy was a wacko gay guy going against his instilled beliefs.
    Sadly, the FBI has sold their souls for job security, to hell with the country or doing what’s right.


  15. Anyone besides me ever watch the movie, “Wag The Dog”? Yeah…
