The FBI Was Warned About The Odessa Shooter Before The Attack, Similar To Past Shootings

A new report has revealed the FBI had been alerted to the Odessa, Texas shooter prior to his attack.

The shooter himself, Seth Ator, called the FBI before shooting and killing seven people and wounding 22 others. FBI special agent Christopher Combs has said the gunman “was on a long spiral down” before the shooting on the day he was fired.

The suspect had been fired over the weekend from Journey Oilfield Services before he started shooting during a routine traffic stop in West Texas.

FBI agent Combs has asserted knowledge that the shooter went to work “in trouble,” on the day he was fired, and lived at “a strange residence,” and that his condition reflected “what his mental state was going into this.”

This is not the first time the FBI has admitted to advance knowledge of a potential mass shooter in advance of an attack.

The FBI was alerted twice by tips to its national call center about Nikolas Cruz, the teenager who shot and killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last year. Both tips warned that Cruz was a potential school shooter, but the FBI has claimed that it failed on both occasions to send to agents in South Florida to investigate.

“The FBI could have and should have done more to investigate the information it was provided prior to the shooting,” the deputy director of the FBI, David Bowdich, said during congressional hearings on the Parkland shooting. 

The FBI was warned by a friend of the Cruz family that Nikolas Cruz had made concerning comments about the Islamic State terrorist group, that he had bought multiple guns, that he had mutilated small animals, that he had the mental capacity of a 12- to 14-year-old, and that he was “going to explode.”

The FBI has a special history in failing to prevent radical Islamic terrorism.

FBI Special Agent Juvenal Martin testified that he had interviewed Pulse nightclub shooter Omar Mateen multiple times in 2013 after co-workers notified the FBI that Mateen had made comments about al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups.

The FBI also knew Mateen was a follower of radical imam and bank robber Marcus Dwayne Robertson, who prosecutors warned would recruit people to carry out violent acts. The FBI also knew that Mateen had close links to Moner Mohammad Abu-Salha, another American citizen who had become an Islamic Terrorist and suicide bomber.

Walt Disney World even alerted the FBI about Mateen, because Disney felt he was casing Disney World to commit a crime.

Despite all of this information, the FBI under the direction of Jamey Comey took Mateen off their watch list. Mateen killed 49 people and wounded 53 others in Orlando, before admitting to police hostage negotiators during the ensuing standoff that he had pledged his allegiance to ISIS.

Omar Mateen’s father, a radical with very extremist views, had been an FBI informant for 11 years. After the shooting, Mateen’s father was given a prominent seat at a Hillary Clinton rally.

The FBI was also reportedly in contact with radical Islamic terrorist Tamerlan Tsarnaev before the Boston bombing in 2013 that killed three people and injured several hundred others.

In an FBI interview, the convicted bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev claimed he was approached by four alleged FBI agents before the Boston attacks, which corroborated earlier statements by his mother.

Many online are starting to notice a pattern of the FBI failing to stop mass attacks, despite having foreknowledge of their perpetrators.

In another bizarre incident, a New Mexico compound was destroyed by authorities after the FBI arrested the son of a notorious imam who ritualistically murdered his own three-year-old son and trained nearly a dozen other children to commit school shootings.

The FBI has a strange history in many of the most notorious acts of Islamic terrorism.

In 1996, the Khobar Towers were bombed in Saudi Arabia, killing 19 U.S. airmen and wounding nearly 500 others. Osama bin Laden was quoted in al Quds al Arabi, the Palestinian daily published in London, as saying, “The crusader army was shattered when we bombed Khobar.”

FBI agents working on the Khobar case rejected any evidence of bin Laden’s involvement in the bombing, because a decision had been made that Shi’a radicals were responsible.

After the World Trade Center was bombed in 1993 by a group of Muslim radicals, the New York Times printed a story admitting, “Law-enforcement officials were told that terrorists were building a bomb that was eventually used to blow up the World Trade Center.”

The FBI admitted to having advance knowledge of the bomb, and Emad A. Salem, the informer helping the FBI claimed an FBI supervisor “is the main reason of bombing the World Trade Center.”
