ISIS has tripled-down on its claim that Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock was both a convert to Islam and operating on its behalf in its just published edition of its weekly Naba newsletter. The Islamic State propaganda newsletter features infographs and new specific claims concerning Paddock, who the terror group identifies according to the Muslim name, Abu Abdul Barr al-Amriki (or Abu Abdul Barr "The American").
Whereas ISIS media statements initially said Paddock converted "months ago" the new publication now claims he converted six months ago. Minutes after the newsletter was issued, counter-terror analysts focused on the specificity of that particular new information. Thus far investigators have failed to uncover or make public a motive for the mass attack which left 59 dead and over 500 wounded in the deadliest shooting in American history.

Assuming that FBI and police investigators are truly coming up short on motive or ties to terrorism, a main perplexing oddity that stands out is the clearly immense amount of prepping and planning that went into the attack combined with the seemingly non-existent public messaging left behind by the shooter.

Problem is anyone can claim to be to ISIS. It's not unlike 'anonymous'.
Whole thing is screwy. What we do know:
They was many people involved. (woman who warned of attack 45 minutes prior - I believe that witness testimony.
Multiple shooters - cab driver video is most convincing to me - but there's other audio anysis to confirm
Cameras in Mandalay Bay hallways & alarms on window if broken are substantiated.
There had to be people working at Mandala Bay who enabled the smuggling of arms into the suites.
I could go on; but the whole thing stinks like a black op inside job pile of pig shit.
And yes. REAL people DIED.
I'm not an idiot.
Two platforms in two adjacent suites that Paddock booked. He didn't need two suites he coulda just worked from one.
