The more I think about it, the more I am insulted by our government who thinks they are wiser than any of us are.

Idiots.

What sort of SWAT team waits 3 hours to go in knowing there's dozens of casualties bleeding to death?


A SWAT team that believes that the shooter is an Islamic terrorist wearing a suicide bomb. This jerk used the Islamic terrorist boogey man to his advantage.

I see it as being more sinister and calculated.

I see it as not being "allowed" to hear the truth, as opposed to not being able to "handle" the truth. This is social engineering. "Handle" is a verb in this context, and I believe this government is using social engineering to make people believe 'they' are the only ones allowed to "handle" anything. Therefore, they manipulate the truth so there's nothing left for people to 'handle'.

The fact that they're just releasing transcripts, instead of the audio, is enough for me to not even bother reading their propaganda.

Removing references to "Islamic terrorism" is Obama trying to turn this into a gun control issue ..

Why does the gov of Florida have the state police or sheriff release the full transcript.

My suspicion is this is exactly what will wind up happening in some form. I don't think this PC gag order on the actual transcripts will last for long.

The truly disturbing part in all this is the fact that the AG came right out and said it! To me, this shows just how far past the point of no return we are as a country. They're not hiding it, they're coming right out and saying it in the light of day...'we're going to manipulate the facts, and YOU can't do a damn thing about it!'

This should be truly terrifying to any citizen of this country, regardless of which side of the aisle you sit on!

The implications of editing the tape are profound politically, socially and culturally. If you feel that the government should be censoring this type of information "for our protection" then you haven't been paying attention.

Agreed. When I see our government literally editing reality- changing the details and the truth- as it happens, and telling us they're doing it, I can't describe my amazement. What happened to honest reporting of the news?? The message from this administration seems very clear. Mass deception is the new normal, and we should be okay with that. We'll only be spoon-fed the versions of events that will help us to behave in the proper way, and have the proper opinions, to advance a chosen agenda.

This makes me think about the old 'slippery slope' argument. For them to consider this practice to now be acceptable, it had to begin somewhere. But every time someone mentions a slippery slope, there are ATSers who jump all over them, insisting that it's a ridiculous logical fallacy.
Pretty soon, if we the people allow things like this to continue, REPORTING THE FACTUAL VERSION OF EVENTS will be more synonymous with 'treasonous behavior' than oh, I don't know, mishandling top secret information that leads to exposure of American intelligence agents overseas.

...but I digress.

At least they aren't trying to call it a glitch this time but to me it shows they are getting bolder.

And this is the beginning of Newspeak


ambiguous euphemistic language used chiefly in political propaganda.

The full tapes might reveal much the administration doesn't want us to know.
First off the guy worked for G4S security solutions, a government contractor.
He was licensed to carry 2 weapons concealed.
He had a long history of violence and threats all the way from grade school to his first wife who left after only being married for months due to domestic violence.
Mateen had been investigated 3 times by the FBI and released every time.
Disneyland security reported Mateen to the FBI
Even a gun store he visited called the FBI or DHS to report the man.
A fellow employee of G4S quit due to threats and stalking by Mateen which was reported to his superiors.
"See something, say something' appears to me to be the most singularly useless program yet invented.
Nobody gets off after all those alerts unless someone high up in government wants this guy on the loose.
Want something to blame?
Don't blame guns.
Blame the government that did NOTHING over and over again.

Lynch: "Partial Transcript" Of Orlando 911 Calls Will Have References To Islamic Terrorism Removed.


In an interview with NBC's Chuck Todd, Attorney General Loretta Lynch says that on Monday, the FBI will release edited transcripts of the 911 calls made by the Orlando nightclub shooter to the police during his rampage.

"What we're not going to do is further proclaim this man's pledges of allegiance to terrorist groups, and further his propaganda," Lynch said. "We are not going to hear him make his assertions of allegiance [to the Islamic State]."

Key words: "the FBI will release".

I fully believe that the calls will be edited but not for those reasons.

"I'm in Pulse and I see 4 shooters!!!" - Delete.

"We are being shot at by the police!!!" - Delete.

"Something strange is going on like a play or a staged event." - Delete.

"Why are the authorities allowing this to continue uninterrupted for 3 hours!?" - Delete.

What else will be edited out, feel free to add your own.


I'll bet all that's left on what gets published is even more redacted than that. More like...

"...gun..."

"...shooting..."

"...multiple shots..."

"...guns..."

"...shot..."

"...gun shots..."

"...bullets..."

"...guns..."

"...shooter..."

"...killing...guns...dead...shooting..."

"...gunshots...shooter....dead...(screams)...gun...gun...gun...kill...gun..."

Well, you get the idea.

You cannot win a war if you cannot even define your enemy,America has lost

You sir, are correct. But there is apparently another enemy...at least of the people. An enemy that breaks our laws and doesn't give it a second thought. An enemy that lies to the people and (in this case) decides to edit out important information. The last time they did that they were caught and caught in a lie to cover it up. This time they are telling us they are editing it so they can't be caught with their pants down.

While I have long suspected, and previously supported the right strongly in defense against this enemy...times and experience has changed my view. The government of the United States is the greatest enemy of the people of the United States. It is the biggest reason for our economic problems, our social problems, or foreign problems and our morality problems. I am patiently waiting for someone, some group to stand and begin fixing this problem. Maybe that involves Trump...maybe not. But when they appear, I will be there to provide any support possible.

Our government is out of control and is the biggest threat to America, Americans and our way of life today.

Sounds like you guys want to hear the shooter's propaganda, and you want the whole world to hear it too. You want his last dying message and pledge to ISIS to be broadcast everywhere. So, you like to help with terrorist recruitment? Exactly what side of the battle are you guys on, when you are most concerned about a terrorist scum's last words being heard?

Anything short of the truth and the whole truth is worthless. By stating they are editing the transcript, they are covering their asses so they can remove information they don't want the people to know. They have done it before and have been caught doing it and then lying about it. We are adults and this is our country. We want to hear every single unedited word so we know exactly what we are up against.

We don't need some wanna-be-president changing the truth to his PC, watered down lie. We have had enough of that and this administration of liars.

It's not that you've completely missed the point which is so surprising; it's by how FAR you missed it which is so stunning!

This isn't about helping terrorists! This is about selective censorship by government. I want the entire World to hear what evil these terrorists perpetrate! I want the entire civilized World to hear that these heinous acts are the acts of ISLAMIC TERRORISTS. I want people to see this for what it is...ISLAMIC TERRORISM. I want the entire world to see ISLAMIC TERRORISTS are the uncivilized ANIMALS they truly are!

I don't want our government, or anyone else, putting rose colored glasses on these events!

The whole purpose of this censorship is to change the focus of the events and paint a completely different narrative with it. They want to change this narrative to not be about ISLAMIC TERRORISM, but rather about demonizing firearms. This is WRONG and we, as a people, should not have to stand for it!!

I understand your take on it, that you don't want any valuable truth left out.

Do you understand the other argument which has nothing to do with PC, or dictating what the people can handle, and has everything to do with stifling his propaganda message?

No I just don't trust the government to sanitize information that is available in other murder cases with a simple FOIA request.
That is kind of the entire point of the FOIA. Lynch went on television to IMO redefine the FOIA. She does not get to do this.

Simply put...NO! Because there is no logical / sensible basis for this...AT ALL!

The deeds are done, nothing anyone says can undo them. Nothing. Why hide the truth now?

The ONLY justice now is contained in the truth. Manipulating the truth now only perpetuates more LIES!
