A breaking story from Liberty Unyielding explains that the Orlando gunman’s wife knew about his plans to attack a gay night club in Orlando, yet she did nothing to stop him!
The Orlando gunman’s wife has told federal agents she tried to talk her husband out of carrying out the attack, NBC News has learned.
Omar Mateen’s current wife, Noor, told the FBI she was with him when he bought ammunition and a holster, several officials familiar with the case said. She told the FBI that she once drove him to the gay nightclub, Pulse, because he wanted to scope it out…
Authorities are considering filing criminal charges against Noor for failing to tell them what she knew before the brutal attack, law enforcement officials say, but no decision has been made.
She is cooperating with investigators, several officials say.
While it’s good that Noor Mateen is now willing to help investigators unravel the horrific attack, the fact that she chose to do nothing to prevent the attack is unconscionable. While they should consider granting some leniency to her for being willing to cooperate now, the government must still charge her as either a coconspirator, or at the very least, as someone who acted with depraved indifference in allowing the deaths of 49 innocent people.
