Orlando Jihadi Bought Plane Tickets For His Family One Day Before Terror Attack

The plot continues to thicken…

As if the evidence wasn’t clear enough that Omar Mateen’s family was complicit in his massacre, we just uncovered the most bizarre part just yet.

The day before the massacre Mateen purchased plane tickets for him and his family. But as you’ll read, it’s the particular timing – and destination, that’ll have you scratching your head.

CNN reports:

The gunman paid the entry fee, obtained a wrist band, and entered the club, the officials said. Investigators believe he may have been checking the club security. Surveillance video, cell phone tracking along with witness interviews have helped the FBI to build a timeline of his whereabouts on the night of the attack. But they are still working to determine what he was doing for a two-hour period between when he left the club and returned.

The day before, he had bought three plane tickets for him, his wife, Noor Salman, and child to travel from West Palm Beach to San Francisco in July. Investigators don’t know why, if he was planning an attack, he made travel plans.

So – he purchased plane tickets the day before the attack, to travel a month after the attacks.

I’m not really sure what he was thinking with this one, but now that his wife is on a no-fly list, she won’t be able to enjoy whatever vacation she may have been planning.
