2017 Fort Lauderdale airport shooting

2017 Fort Lauderdale airport shooting --- ===

Authorities and mainstream media are covering up obvious evidence that Fort Lauderdale airport was attacked by a Puerto Rican ISIS Islamist terrorist who has been radicalized and was known to FBI and law enforcement who investigated him but wrongly let him go and gave back his gun go after concluding he was not radicalized or connected to any terrorist organization or political beliefs. even after he told them he was being forced by the CIA to be a ISIS terrorist and watched radical videos.

Fort Lauderdale Suspect First Planned NYE Trip to NYC: Authorities
ABC News July 10, 2017


Debunked conspiracy theory: Fort Lauderdale Shooter Esteban Santiago Used a Muslim Name?
snopes.com July 10, 2017 Some reports indicate the suspected Florida shooter may have used an Arabic-sounding name web sites began claiming that the shooting suspect, who has been identified by authorities as Esteban Santiago Ruiz, 26, used Arabic-sounding names, and that he was a radicalized terrorist who had converted to an extreme form of Islam. Some said that he used the name Emir Mohamed Sikkim, while others claimed he had assumed the name Aashiq Hammad.  An unnamed law enforcement official told ABC News on 9 January 2017 that Santiago may in fact have used the name Aashiq Hammad:  Since the attacks, investigators recovered Santiago’s computer from a pawn shop, and the FBI is examining it to determine whether the alleged shooter created a jihadist identity for himself using the name Aashiq Hammad, according to officials familiar with the case. conservative site GotNews.com, which is owned by controversial media figure Chuck C. Johnson, claimed that Santiago may have used the name Aashiq Hammad, and was a fan of the Japanese animation art form known as anime. The GotNews team used the Nexis public records database search results of proof for their claim:  A search of public records database Nexis reveals that Puerto Rican Esteban Santiago has a brother named Bryan Santiago and two e-mails registered to his name... The second e-mail, “Naota33@hotmail.com”, is how GotNews exclusively visually identified Santiago before every mainstream media outlet and discovered he was posting on an explosives/weapons forum about mass-downloading Islamic terrorist propaganda videos in 2007 yesterda The account user lists the city of Peñuelas, Puerto Rico as their home and has Muslim religious song listed under "songs." (We have e-mailed both the accounts to see if they are in use, and have not received a response).

Their claim hinged on whether e-mail addresses and other personal information ascribed to Santiago by the Nexis search were in fact correct. Information gleaned from such searches can contain errors, because such databases pull information from multiple available records. They have in the past been known to conflate information belonging to individuals with similar names.

The article continues with a claim that Santiago was recording "Islamic religious music" online:

That song was recorded in 2007, 3 years before Esteban Santiago went to Iraq as a U.S. soldier in 2010, destroying the lying mainstream media’s narrative that he was a “mentally disturbed veteran”, although even they admit Santiago went into an FBI office in 2015 and told agents he was being forced to watch ISIS videos by voices in his head (or something).

2007 was also the year that “Naota33” was posting on an explosives/weapons forum about mass-downloading Islamic propaganda videos, as GotNews exclusively revealed yesterday.

Santiago was definitely mentally disturbed, but if he was calling himself “Aashiq Hammad”, recording Islamic religious music online, and downloading Islamic terrorist propaganda all in 2007, 3 years before his first deployment to Iraq, what do you really think is the root cause here?

Investigators are looking at terrorism as one possible motive, but have not decisively established it as such. George Piro, FBI special agent in charge out of Miami, told reporters during a 7 January 2017 press conference:

We continue to look at all angles and motives and at this point we are continuing to look at the terrorism angle.

A mass shooting occurred at Fort Lauderdale–Hollywood International Airport in Broward County, Florida, United States, on January 6, 2017. The attack occurred at about 12:55 EST (UTC-5) near the baggage claim in Terminal 2. The suspect traveled to the airport from Anchorage, Alaska and checked a semiautomatic 9mm handgun as his only luggage. After he completed shooting, he laid down on the ground. He was arrested without incident, is under federal custody, and has been questioned about the case.

Five people were killed, six others were taken to the hospital, and a suspect was taken into custody. There were 30 to 40 people who sustained other injuries. About 10,000 stranded passengers were bused to Port Everglades, where they received shelter, food, and travel assistance. The airport remained closed for the remainder of the day, but reopened to commercial flights early the following day.

Attack[edit]

The attack happened near the baggage claim in Terminal 2 (in red on map).

The assailant opened fire with a 9mm semi-automatic handgun[1][2] in the airport at about 12:55 p.m. EST, in the baggage claim area of Terminal 2,[3] which is the host terminal for Delta Air Lines and Air Canada.[4] Video showed travelers rushing out of the airport and hundreds of people waiting on the tarmac as numerous law enforcement officers rushed to the scene.[4] Part of the panic occurred following "unfounded reports of additional gunshots"; the false alarm touched off a brief panic in other terminals.[3] Former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer tweeted from the airport, "Shots have been fired. Everyone is running."[3]

The shooting lasted about 70 to 80 seconds.[5] The suspect laid down on the ground after he finished shooting. Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel stated that law enforcement officers did not fire shots and that the gunman was arrested without incident.[4]

The Broward County Sheriff's Office reported that five people were killed. Originally, eight people were have said to have been injured,[3] but the sheriff clarified on January 7 that the number of people injured due to the shooting was actually six, with three admitted in intensive care units.[6] The sheriff said that in addition to the people injured by gunshots, about 30 to 40 others were "injured in the panic" during the event.[3]
Aftermath[edit]

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a ground stop notice, closing the airport to all but emergency flights.[7] Port Everglades, staffed by American Red Cross, assisted about 10,000 passengers who were bused there for food, shelter and to connect to transportation.[3] The airport remained closed for the remainder of the day, but reopened to commercial flights early the following day.[3] Following the shooting, more than 20,000 pieces of baggage were left at the airport amid the chaos.[5]

The media in Alaska reported that the Qupqugiaq Inn, a motel in midtown Anchorage, was evacuated on the day of the shooting as part of the investigation into the suspect. Authorities would not specify what connection he had to the lodge.[8]

President Barack Obama was briefed about the shooting by Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Lisa Monaco. President-electDonald Trump tweeted that he was monitoring the situation and that he had spoken with Florida Governor Rick Scott regarding the shooting.[9] President Obama later consoled the victims and stated that he had asked his staff to reach out to Mayor Jack Seiler in order to make sure efforts were coordinated between state and local officials.[10] Governor Scott ordered flags of the United States and of Florida to be flown at half-mast throughout the state on January 7 and 8 to honor the victims.[11]

Date apprehended January 6, 2017


Esteban Santiago-Ruiz (born March 16, 1990), a 26-year-old resident of Alaska and a military veteran,[12] was arrested immediately after the shooting.[3] Because the attack took place at an airport, it falls under federal criminal jurisdiction. Santiago-Ruiz was put in federal custody after the incident.[3]

Santiago flew from Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport in Anchorage on a Delta flight, connecting through Minneapolis–Saint Paul International Airport. Investigators say that he checked a declared 9mm pistol in his baggage before retrieving it in Fort Lauderdale and loading the gun in an airport bathroom just before the attack.[2][13][14] According to law enforcement officials, he had purchased Glock 9mm and .40 caliber pistols in the past, but it was unknown whether these were the firearms used in the attack.[15] Santiago was reported to be carrying military identification at the time of the shooting.[16]

Santiago was reportedly born in New Jersey in 1990, having moved to Puerto Rico two years later.[17] He joined the Puerto Rico National Guard on December 14, 2007, and served in the Iraq War from April 23, 2010 to February 19, 2011 as a combat engineer. He later served in the Alaska Army National Guard from November 21, 2014, until receiving a general discharge in August 2016 for "unsatisfactory performance."[17] He was a private first class and received ten awards during his time in the military.[18] According to his family members, he had become mentally ill after his tour in Iraq and had recently received psychological treatment following a number of incidents.[19] Federal officials confirmed that he was undergoing treatment for mental health problems.[20]

In January 2016, Santiago was arrested and charged with assault in an incident involving his girlfriend in Anchorage, Alaska; in the criminal complaint, police said that Santiago had attempted to strangle her; the case resulted in a deferred prosecution agreement.[21]

Officials said that Santiago visited the FBI field office in Anchorage in November 2016 and reported hearing voices in his head telling him to commit acts of violence. He also said that he was in control and did not intend to hurt anyone. These statements are similar to the suspect of the Washington Navy Yard shooting.[3][4] Officials later told the Associated Press that during his visit, he claimed that the US government was controlling his mind and making him watch videos by the [terrorist group ISIS ]Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.[22] He reportedly stated that the CIA was forcing him to join the group.[23] Authorities urged the man to seek mental health treatment[4] and notified the local police who detained him and took him to a medical facility for a mental health evaluation.[3][24] His handgun was taken from him due to the incident, however was returned in December after the authorities found no wrongdoing on his part.[25]
Investigation[edit]

Santiago was identified as the lone gunman by multiple law agencies and as the sole suspect.[26] FBI stated that he appears to have arrived in the city specifically for carrying out the shooting. But according to them, investigators found no specific reason why he chose the airport nor had determined any motive.[27] Per authorities, the shooting was carried out for 70 to 80 seconds. State and local law officials stated that Santiago had fired with a semiautomatic 9mm handgun at the baggage claim in Terminal 2.[28]

January 10, 2017 Airport Shooter Converted to Islam, Identified as Aashiq Hammad Years Before Joining Army - Judicial Watch  they suspect he was inspired by islamist leaders in florida JANUARY 10, 2017 The Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooter is a Muslim convert who years before joining the U.S. Army took on an Islamic name (Aashiq Hammad), downloaded terrorist propaganda and recorded Islamic religious music online, according to public records dug up by the investigative news site of an award-winning, California journalist. This is pertinent information that the Obama administration apparently wants to keep quiet, bringing up memories of the Benghazi cover up, in which the president and his cohorts knowingly lied to conceal that Islamic terrorists attacked the U.S. Special Mission in Libya.

Information is slowly trickling out that links the Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooter to radical Islam while the official story from authorities is that the gunman is a mentally ill, Hispanic Army veteran named Esteban Santiago that became unhinged after a tour in Iraq. Only one mainstream media outlet mentions the possibility of Santiago’s “jihadist identity,” burying it in a piece about New York possibly being his initial target. A paragraph deep in the story mentions that investigators recovered Santiago’s computer from a pawn shop and the FBI is examining it to determine whether he created a “jihadist identity for himself using the name Aashiq Hammad…” The rest of the traditional mainstream media coverage promotes the government rhetoric that omits any ties to terrorism even though early on a photo surfaced of Santiago making an ISIS salute while wearing a keffiyeh, a Palestinian Arab scarf.

The public records uncovered in the days after the massacre suggest Santiago (Hammad) is a radical Islamic terrorist that’s seriously committed to Islam. Besides taking on a Muslim name, he recorded three Islamic religious songs, including the Muslim declaration faith (“there is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger”) known as the Shahada. He also posted a thread about downloading propaganda videos from Islamic terrorists on a weapons and explosives forum. The investigative news site that unearthed this disturbing information connected the dots between Santiago, who is of Puerto Rican descent, and Hammad, an identity he created in 2007.

This week a prominent Ft. Lauderdale businessman and longtime resident addressed a letter to the city’s mayor and commissioners blasting county and federal officials for covering up that “Aashiq Hammad, not Esteban Santiago, attacked our city and county.” The businessman, respected Ft. Lauderdale real estate entrepreneur Jim Morlock, specifically names Broward County’s elected sheriff Scott Israel, Florida senator Bill Nelson, the first to identify Santiago as the shooter on national television, and congressman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, ousted last summer as Democratic National Committee (DNC) chair over a scandalous plot to damage Bernie Sanders during the primary.

“Since when does a US Senator (Bill Nelson), not law enforcement, be the one to so quickly release this terrorist’s Hispanic name but nothing about his more relevant Islamic background?” the letter asks. Obama must have told Sen. Nelson to keep this from looking like a Muslim Terrorist attack during the last 12 days of his watch. Bad for his legacy.” Morlock goes on to state that it’s “better to portray this atrocity as white Hispanic Alaskan mental Iraq war vet gun violence.” The real estate entrepreneur proceeds to reveal that Santiago lives in walking distance to the only mosque in Alaska, was radicalized before he entered the military and was knowingly allowed to serve despite his Islamic sympathies thanks to “Obama’s PC military.”

The letter poses interesting questions, including why this Muslim terrorist chose Ft. Lauderdale out of all the nation’s airports and who Santiago knows in Broward county, which has a large and growing Islamic community. In 2015 Judicial Watch obtained records from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) that show and Al Qaeda terrorist who helped plan several U.S. attacks lived in Broward County and graduated from the local community college with a degree in computer engineering. His name is Adnan G. El Shukrijumah, but he also had a Hispanic identity, Javier Robles, and for years he appeared on the FBI’s most wanted list. Back in 2012 Judicial Watch reported on a terrorist front group’s demands that Broward County public schools close twice a year to celebrate Islamic holy days, illustrating the influence that Muslims have in the region.

To have a Muslim pseudonym (Aashiq Hammad), like a song “no God but Allah,” raise his finger as an Islamic declaration (a favorite by Jihadis), have facial hair with a trimmed mustache and wrap his neck with a Qafiyyeh; the man is either an undercover agent masquerading as Muslim, or is indeed a Muslim convert. While the probability of an undercover agent to shoot Americans at an airport are extremely slim, if we add all our combinations and to top it all, this includes an actual killing of American civilians at an airport, one can bet top dollar that he is a Muslim convert and a terrorist lone wolf.  If we apply the laws of probability, the chances of this being wrong are extremely slim.
We don’t know a motive at this point,” Nelson said. “This could well be someone who is mentally deranged, or in fact it could be someone who had a much more sinister motive that we have to worry about every day, and that is terrorism. We can’t conclude that.”
And now they say that he has “no connection with Islam”. This is completely false. The dead giveaway in Ruiz’s photo below is not just the Kaffiyeh around his neck, even more particular, is him raising his index finger, his facial features and his MySpace account with his choice of Muslim song that declares “no god but Allah” and his acquiring of a Muslim pseudonym leaves a set probabilities impossible to ignore, unless we conclude him at least a convert to Islam. And with killing American civilians at an airport of all places, this should top it all for a self-made lone wolf Jihadi.
The Muslim calls the index finger sabbabah, to proclaim “there is no god but Allah,” a single unique god is the Tawhid (declaration that one is Muslim). This is a sign that he believes that Allah is the unique absolute one (not the Trinity). To Muslims, Allah sent Muslims to destroy the concept of the Trinity which would be three fingers raised as Orthodox Christians do. This is the signal of the anti-Christian belief.
And if the Nazi has a Seig Heil and cutting their sides of their hair, the Islamist uses the sabbabah (index finger) and lets the beard go while trimming the mustache. This can be seen including raising the index finger on photo with a Middle Eastern headscarf shows his allegiance to Allah and Islam.

UPDATE: I have had too many naive Americans doubt my observation so let me certain things clear. Besides the index finger, here we have the facial features and demeanor.
A convert ends up looking Muslim and a tracker like myself can easily tell, for all this dispenses an ora in the eyes and facial features. This takes time to acquire. Ruiz was obviously Muslim for a while. His appearance and dress, like donning a middle eastern headscarf, and letting his beard go (even if it is peach fuzz) while keeping the mustache trimmed is a dead giveaway. And after finding out his MySpace account with the Islam loving (more on that later), all this reveals he is definitely Muslim.
Naive Americans do not research. Trimming the mustache (not shaving it, just cutting it short) and letting the beard go are signs. This goes to show these know the Hadith. Muhammad said “Qussu Al-sharib wa-A’immu al-Liha” (cut short the mustache and let the beard go, see Sahih Muslim 260).
“Trim mustaches, lengthen/leave beards and do not imitate the Jews.” (Tahawi, Sharh Ma’ani al-Athar, 4/230)

And lest Americans don’t get it, showing the index finger is to go against the Christians, trimming the mustache and elongating the beard, is to denounce the Jews and the Magi (Persians who trimmed their beards). This is well referenced in Islam as the reason; to look different and set Muslims aside from Christians, Jews and Magi. One thing Ruiz erred is that he also trimmed the hair below the lower lip for it, according to Islam, belongs to the beard. However, many Muslims miss that one.
But there is more. The song “La ilaha illAllah” selected on his MySpace account while giving himself the name “Aashiq Hammad” which means “Lover of the Blessed” (Allah), while the song is an Arabic recitation of the Muslim declaration of faith “There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is his messenger” nails everything we need to know. This is someone who knows some Arabic and knows that a convert needs to change his name to something like Lover of the Blessed (Allah). But the fact that all this was well hidden reveals he knew how to go dark making it more suspect that what we have is an ISIS lone wolf.
END UPDATE
Obviously Ruiz drank the Muslim pill and was converted durning his service in the Middle East. His brother, Bryan Santiago told the Associated Press that “He was deployed to Iraq in 2010 and spent a year there with the 130th Engineer Battalion, the 1013th engineer company out of Aguadilla, according to Puerto Rico National Guard spokesman Maj. Paul Dahlen.”
As far as the “mental illness” is concerned, this rampage was carefully planned. He flew for Alaska to FLA via MPS-St Paul. The act was too cold and calculating for someone with mental issues. The attack compares to the summer 2016 attack on Ataturk Airport in Turkey and ISIS terrorist channels knew Esteban’s name before the news reported it. A U.S. senator gave Esteban’s name out live on MSNBC. It is unclear if ISIS channels spread his name before MSNBC.
If claimed by ISIS, the attack would be the second ISIS attack this year, with the first being the Reina Nightclub attack in Istanbul, Turkey. In that attack, a gunman shot and killed a policeman and a civilian around 1:45 a.m. on January 1 before entering the club and opening fire, reports the New York Post. 39 people were killed.
While Tennessee GOP states that Santiago-Ruiz “was posting on Jihadi forums when he was 17 years old in 2007” the evidence to this can be found here where Ruiz was fiddling with Islamic nasheed songs registered on MySpace under the name “Aashiq Hammad” and recorded Islamic religious music on the site, 3 years before he ever deployed to Iraq as a U.S. soldier …

Ruiz did obtain Global War on Terrorism Medal. But all this means was that he was deployed overseas for service in the global war on terrorism like Operation Iraqi Freedom. Their, in Iraq, soldiers tend to mingle with the local population which can be a reason why he caught the Islam flue bug.
So now we come to the probabilities. To have a Muslim pseudonym (Aashiq Hammad), like a song “no God but Allah,” raise his finger as an Islamic declaration (a favorite by Jihadis), have facial hair with a trimmed mustache and wrap his neck with a Qafiyyeh; the man is either an undercover agent masquerading as Muslim, or is indeed a Muslim convert. While the probability of an undercover agent to shoot Americans at an airport are extremely slim, if we add all our combinations and to top it all, this includes an actual killing of American civilians at an airport, one can bet top dollar that he is a Muslim convert and a terrorist lone wolf.  If we apply the laws of probability, the chances of this being wrong are extremely slim.
