The FBI just defied Obama and his DOJ in the best way possible. Do you think Obama will take actions to get some sick revenge for exposing the Orlando shooter’s true motives?
The Department of Justice and the FBI has released the unredacted version of the Orlando shooter’s 911 call after tons of outcry for redacting references to ISIS.
Republicans by the score ripped the White House over politically correct concerns, and Paul Ryan demanded the unredacted version be released.
Here’s the full transcript, without the omissions:
OD: Emergency 911, this is being recorded.
OM: In the name of God the Merciful, the beneficent [Arabic]
OM: Praise be to God, and prayers as well as peace be upon the prophet of God [Arabic]. I wanna let you know, I’m in Orlando and I did the shootings.
OD: What’s your name?
OM: My name is I pledge of allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi of the Islamic State.
OD: Ok, What’s your name?
OM: I pledge allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi may God protect him [Arabic], on behalf of the Islamic State.
OD: Alright, where are you at?
OM: In Orlando.
OD: Where in Orlando?
[End of call.]

According to the Daily Mail:
Omar Mateen praised God, wished peace upon the prophet and spoke in Arabic during a 50-second call he made to a police dispatcher on June 12 from an Orlando gay club.
The FBI initially released partial transcripts of Mateen’s conversations with members of law enforcement during the brutal attack, starting with the 911 call he made at 2:35am, a little over 30 minutes after the first report of shots being fired at the Pulse nightclub.
Much of what Mateen said was redacted, with the FBI making the decision to leave out all references to Islam, 9/11 and any of the groups that the shooter pledged his allegiance to during the attack, which left 49 dead. References to ‘Allah’ were also replaced with ‘God’ throughout.
After facing criticism from Republicans, including House Speaker Paul Ryan who called the selective editing ‘preposterous’, the DoJ and FBI decided to release the complete transcript some hours later.
In a joint statement from DoJ and the FBI, it said the change of heart was down to the redacted transcript ‘causing unnecessary distraction” from the work of law enforcement authorities.
‘We also did not want to provide the killer or terrorist organizations with a publicity platform for hateful propaganda,” the statement added.
