Orlando Shooter’s Wife: The FBI Told Me Not to Tell the Media He Was Gay

from AlterNet

The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation told the former wife of the Orlando shooter Omar Mateen, Sitora Yusufiy, not to speak of his homosexuality or the fact that she, his family and others believed he was gay, Yusufiy’s current fiance, Marco Dias, told a Brazilian TV channel in an interview.

Dias told the Brazilian television station SBT Brazil Tuesday that Yusufiy believed Mateen was gay and that his father called him gay several times in front of her. However, “the FBI asked her not to tell this to the American media.” Since the attack, Mateen has been dubbed an “Islamic terrorist” by politicians, senior officials and commentators in the U.S. following reports he had pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group. However, the idea that he could have been a closet-homosexual indicates that the Orlando shooting might have been a deeply felt and personal act of hate. The FBI and law enforcement in the United States have so far been pursuing the “Islamist terrorism” angle and their alleged demand from Mateen’s ex-wife to keep mum about his homosexuality suggests they want to downplay the personal and self-hating nature of the attack in favor of the Islamic terrorism-related one.

  1. Say what you will about the FBI but they are sensitive guys. I found this really touching. Trying to avoid besmirching the memory of a man post-mortem who, OK, they know he was an “islamic terrorist” but “gay”? No, they can’t allow that to get out.

  2. No, wait. I thought about it some more and I think I called it wrong. I shouldn’t let emotion lead me astray. Far from being sensitive, the FBI are bigots. What else can you call them when they clearly consider homosexuality something to be so ashamed of that you wouldn’t wish it on your worst enemy. Yeah, that’s it, they are bigots. There is no other explanation for trying to hide this terrorist’s homosexuality.

  3. Aaand…ACTION! -“I did it for ISIS”
    Check out this dweeb

  4. Hey Scott, I’d like this short video to be part of the record …

    Thanks.

    PS alternet.org ( org?) is quite suspect usually IMO

    • looks like him. and yeah, but even Di$info gets something right every now and again

    • It is the actor who was Omar Mateen, together with the other guy who has the «NYPD» t-shirt.
      These CIA operatives sure do know how to make bad movies.

      • do you remember “The Innocence of bin Laden”? Or the better known version that supposedly set off the Benghazi attack, “The Innocence of the Muslims”? Or better yet, “Zero Dark Thirty”? Yeah, they make bad movies.

        • Another blog informs that this so called Omar Mateen (artistic name) was in «The Big Fix» and «Love City».
          Orlando so called massacre was just a week ago and already news and tv’s are changing to other subjects. We have no images of the funeral of any of the victims. So the idea of these directors and producers who make these sick bad comedy shows is «who cares? as long as you have the news of the 50 dead and the photo of the arab who did it, it is all settled».

    • Do we “really” know if so told Omar Mateen was killed? Play dead, hears your paycheck. Now go lay low somewhere.

  5. The MSM has absolved the FBI and given a free pass to the SWAT team, who spent three hours eating donuts and wondering what in the hell is all that noise.
    But they’re going after his wife, who just happens to be of Palestinian origin.

    That should tell everyone who’s really behind this tragedy.
