UPDATE: Looks like his father set up something called the Provisional Government of Afghanistan corporation back in March of this year. The business appears to be located in his home.
UPDATE: Obama just announced on Thursday a widening of US troop involvement in Afghanistan and an extension of how long they are to stay in the country.
The Washington Post reported on Thursday evening that the Obama administration’s new measures “authorize U.S. troops, stationed in Afghanistan on a dual training and counterterrorism mission, to begin accompanying conventional local forces on the battlefield in a way that now occurs only with elite Afghan forces.”
I’m still piecing this together so bare with me, but Goddamn.
It would appear that the father of the suspected shooter, Omar Mateen, runs an NGO out of Port St. Lucie Florida and is politically active in Afghanistan, so much so, he may indeed have aspirations to be Obama’s next puppet in the country.
The father’s name is Mir Seddique and he runs something called The Durand Jirga. As far as I can tell, it has something to do with the line between Pakistan and Afghanistan and he doesn’t like it.
The guy has a TV show which I think he films in Florida and broadcasts over there in Afghanistan but I could be wrong. But he does seem to have some influence in the war-torn country and has even supposedly put his name in the hat for the next presidential election.
“Florida incorporation papers indicate that a Seddique Mateen heads a non-profit organization, The Durand Jirga, Inc. The non-profit was formed in 2010 and is registered at the Port St. Lucie, Florida address where both the father and Omar Mateen appear to reside.” Daily Beast
He did some kind of stunt back in 2011 in DC. Notice his sign says “Long Live USA”
Here he is on his TV show from back in May of 2015 announcing his candidacy for president (I think. I don’t speak Pashtun, if that is what he is speaking)
He says in the video, or at least it’s included, in ENGLISH cations mind you, that the ISI (Pakistani intelligence services) are responsible for all terrorism and wants the US to stop funding them. Same thing is said in the photo above so apparently this is a thing for him.
He put together a peace deal a couple years ago between the US and factions fighting in Afghanistan. I don’t know what happened to it or even if anyone listened to him in DC, but there he is trying to get some attention in front of the White House.
I just find it very odd that the man who is probably going to usher in Obama’s gun-grabbing (and don’t say it isn’t) legislation with his motiveless attack on people at the Pulse nightclub last night just HAPPENS to have a father with political ambitions in Afghanistan, a country where Obama just announced we need to get more involved with more troops being sent in.
Is that a coincidence? Is that a stupid question?
