Las Vegas Shooter Converted to Islam Months Ago Claims ISIS

ISIS news agency Amaq (yes, the Islamic State has a news agency) claims responsibility for the Las Vegas massacre on Sunday night. According to Amaq, the alleged shooter who was killed by police was one of ISIS’ soldiers, i..e Stephen Paddock converted to Islam months ago and has died in jihad against the infidels.

Obviously, so far ISIS/Amaq presented absolutely zero evidence for their claims. Las Vegas police also offered very little details about Stephen Paddock, but they did mention there’s no obvious link to international terrorism.

There’s an old saying about extraordinary claims that require extraordinary evidence, and so far, nobody is really buying ISIS’ propaganda, but the day is still young. However, a number of US senior officials told Reuters that there’s no evidence so far linking Stephen Paddock to international terrorism/ISIS or whatever. As usual, the conflicted disinformation/misinformation phase of every major terrorist event is my favorite part.

And speaking of the alleged ISIS operative Stephen Paddock, the details about him are very scarce. The most efficient (lone wolf) mass shooter in US history, as the mainstream media narrative goes, is a 64 year old retiree, a grandfather who lived somewhere in the middle of nowhere, in a remote desert homestead.

He arrived at the Las Vegas hotel last Thursday and prior to that, he lived a quiet life for many years in a small town near Las Vegas (he doesn’t have a criminal record in Nevada). He was also the owner of 2 planes and a licensed pilot, a guy who loved gambling and music, and he visited Las Vegas casinos often. His brother told the Daily Mail:

‘He has no political affiliation, no religious affiliation, as far as we know. This wasn’t a terror attack’.

We’ll just have to wait and see about that. Maybe the  guy just…snapped.
