Orlando shooter Omar Mateen’s wife has revealed that she had tried to dissuade her husband from carrying out the attacks.
What she didn’t realize that was in making that admission, she had revealed that she had withheld information from authorities that could’ve prevented the attack. A grand jury is currently deciding whether or not to indict her on those charges, and she’s been added to a no fly list in the meantime.
As for her defense, as BizPacReview reports, it’s a bit creative:
When it comes to excuses for being complicit in a terrorist attack the family, and former teacher, of Orlando shooter Omar Mateen‘s wife, Noor Salman, have raised the bar.
In a statement to ABC News, while declaring Salman to be “completely innocent and unaware of the attacks,” they gave this doozy of an excuse.
Salman was enrolled in special education classes in school and doesn’t understand “cause and effect.”
“Noor had difficulty with retention, she had difficulty with conceptualizing, understanding, all challenges to her,” her middle school teacher “Susan” told ABC News.
“She tried hard. She was very sweet.”
Salman was a “special day class student,” which meant she had special education teachers in every class she took.
Let’s see how the jury ends up taking that one in. You don’t exactly need to be Einstein to understand what shooting people does.
