Is the FBI Covering up an Antifa-ISIS Connected Cell Responsible for the Las Vegas Massacre?
Many questions remain unanswered about last October’s tragic mass shooting at the Mandalay Bay casino in Las Vegas. Even mainstream news outlets are reporting on the odd lack of details released to the public. Leaks from the FBI reveal there may be a cover-up going on within the FBI. Stephen Paddock may have not been a lone shooter.
True Pundit, an investigative news site, has talked to anonymous sources within the FBI. “It’s a movie script that was written after the shooting to rewrite what really happened,” an FBI agent told the outlet. “The investigation is an entirely different story that we are not allowed to talk about. If we do and get caught, we get fired and probably charged (criminally).” Seasoned law enforcement and military experts expressed serious doubts to The Daily Caller about the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s initial report. They found it odd that police gave no motive for the shooter.
FBI sources told True Pundit that agents were told to ignore evidence of accomplices, including other shooters. “One would-be target was never pursued despite pleadings from intelligence officials and agents that he was possibly the second shooter.” The inside FBI sources said as many as five shooters planned to fire from the suite. Police scanner recordings revealed officers reporting shooters at more than one location. Several witnesses reported other shooters as well.
The Antifas-ISIS Connection
Paddock may have been part of an Antifa-ISIS connected cell. Law enforcement found Antifa materials in his hotel room and photos of women in the Middle East. A Melbourne, Australia, Antifa group claimed credit for the attack on a Facebook post since deleted. “One of our comrades from our Las Vegas branch has made these fascist Trump supporting dogs pay.” FBI agents told True Pundit that Paddock was anti-Trump. They said Paddock worked with Antifa and an ISIS-linked terror faction. They said the FBI knew Paddock targeted the country music concert because it would be full of Trump conservatives. But they were told not to talk about it.
The FBI declared there were no terrorist connections to the shootings. However, ISIS’s Amaq news service said Paddock was a “soldier of the Islamic State who carried out the attack in response to calls for targeting coalition countries.” He “converted to Islam months before the attack.” ISIS’s weekly Al-Naba news referred to Paddock as “Abu Abdul Barr al-Amriki.” Despite the FBI’s denial, President Trump has said he has “no idea” if ISIS played a role.
Police have not released any of the surveillance coverage that might have caught Paddock transporting his guns and ammunition from the parking garage into the hotel. There were 18 AR-10 and AR-15 rifles and hundreds of rounds of ammo housed in bulky gun magazines. Police obtained 21,560 hours of video and 251,099 photo images from the hotel. MGM refused to share video surveillance footage from the casino. FBI agents were told not to reveal this to the media, or they would lose their jobs, agents told True Pundit.
The Unseen Autopsy
Other details are fishy. Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg is defying a court order to release Paddock’s autopsy. Fudenberg claimed he hadn’t finalized the autopsy. But Paddock’s body was cremated back on December 21 and given to his brother. Fudenberg claimed Paddock’s death was a suicide. Law enforcement released minimal details about the autopsy report on January 8, which mentioned a single bullet to the head. However, FBI sources told True Pundit that Paddock suffered two gunshot wounds. If so, forensic evidence would suggest it was not a suicide. The sources believe FBI agents likely killed Paddock.
The brother of Andrea Castilla, a 28-year-old California woman killed during the mass shooting, said he still hasn’t received a copy of her autopsy. “We can’t even get a response from the coroner’s office,” Adam Castilla told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “It’s been over 100 days and I’ve called at least 20 times. I haven’t gotten one call back. I feel like they’re definitely trying to protect someone or themselves.”
Las Vegas security guard Jesus Campos, who Paddock shot in the leg, skipped five media interviews after the shooting. He could not be located for awhile. His family is under a gag order.
While many treat all speculation about the shooting as “conspiracy theories,” much of it is coming from law enforcement and sources within the FBI.
