Fort Lauderdale shooter was “Aashiq Hammad” on MySpace, recorded Islamic music

Fort Lauderdale shooter Esteban Santiago was “Aashiq Hammad” on MySpace, recorded Islamic music, by GotNews. Another mass shooting in the US, and after a few days it turns out the shooter has links to ISIS and the mainstream media is covering it up.

Fort Lauderdale Airport terrorist Esteban Santiago 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, destroying the lying mainstream media’s narrative that he was just a mentally disturbed veteran and that “Islam had nothing to do with it.”


The article goes into the evidence at the link. Looks pretty conclusive that there was some Islamic link.

Fort Lauderdale airport suspect ‘came here specifically’ to attack, FBI says, by Catherine Shoichet. Seems authorities are backtracking on their initial claim that the shooting had nothing to do with terrorism.

Esteban Santiago went to baggage claim and picked up his one piece of checked luggage. There were no other bags, just a case with a handgun inside.

Santiago allegedly took the 9 mm handgun out of its case and fired at other travelers Friday afternoon, killing five people at the Fort Lauderdale airport. On Saturday, authorities revised the number of wounded to six after earlier saying eight.

A few months earlier he reportedly had a mental evaluation after a bizarre visit to an FBI office in Alaska. … The military said Santiago’s nine years of service in the National Guard included one 10-month tour of Iraq, where he was awarded a combat action badge. …

The FBI has not ruled out terrorism, Piro said, but Israel cautioned it was early in the investigation and authorities did not know Santiago’s motive.
