The only thing surprising about this information is the source: The New York Times. They muddle the article enough to obscure reality and the divine inspiration common among all jihadists: ISLAM. Starting with the headline, Chattanooga Gunman Researched Islamic Martyrdom, Officials Say.
Counterterrorism investigators have uncovered evidence the gunman [Mohammod Abdulazeez] who killed five service members last week in Chattanooga, Tenn., searched the Internet in the days leading up to the attack for Islamic materials about whether martyrdom would lead to forgiveness for his sins, like drunkenness and financial debt, according to law enforcement officials.
Investigators believe that one of the crucial factors in his radicalization may have been an uncle who lives in Jordan. The uncle, who is an American citizen and hosted Mr. Abdulazeez during a trip lasting several months to Jordan last year, has been detained there since Friday and interrogated by Jordanian intelligence officers. F.B.I. agents have been dispatched to Jordan to question him while other investigators in the United States are seeking to interview his associates.
Abdulazeez stayed at the home of his uncle, his mother’s brother, in East Amman, Jordan, for several months last summer, said the uncle’s lawyer, Abed al-Kader Ahmad al-Khateeb. Mr. Abdulazeez went to Jordan to work with the uncle, As’ad Ibrahim As’ad Haj Ali, at his mobile-phone company, the lawyer said. The uncle, the lawyer continued, was not involved with Islamic extremists known as salafis.
“I want to tell you, Mohammod is not religious, and is not belonging to any group,” Mr. Khateeb said in an interview in his Amman office Tuesday night. “I specialize in salafi movements, and this guy has no record with the salafis, not him or his uncle.”
Odd, he blogged about Islam and quoted the Koran before waging jihad.
The lawyer said Jordanian intelligence officials contacted the uncle Thursday, shortly after the deadly attack at a Naval Reserve center, and asked him to come to their headquarters. He was released that day, called back the next morning, was released again and then was arrested later Friday at his home, Mr. Khateeb said. He added that Jordanian officers had “confiscated all the mobiles and all the laptops.”
More from ABC:
Monday U.S. officials told ABC News that in 2013 Abdulazeez did online research for militant Islamist “guidance” on committing violence. The Internet searches were discovered on electronic devices such as his smartphone analyzed over the weekend by the FBI Lab in Quantico, Virginia, several counter-terrorism officials confirmed to ABC News.
If the uncle is an American citizen, does he have a wife or wives in the U.S.? Children?
And what happened to the 3 other Muslims who went practice shooting before the Chattanooga attack?
And what about the woman/women arrested at the jihadists home the day of the shooting?
Is there an investigative journalist anywhere asking real questions for the American public?
