After reading this, do you STILL think he’s just a guy who ‘snapped’?
He’s crazy, we’re told.
He’s a ‘white Hispanic’ we’re told.
Because they are DESPERATE for at least SOME attackers like this to have no connection to ISLAM.
Oops. There goes the narrative.
Besides what he said when he checked himself in to the FBI. (He specifically mentioned ISIS videos.) And besides the keffiyeh and the one-finger salute that is ‘essentially an ISIS gang sign’?
Well, the headline summarizes it nicely:
BREAKING: #FortLauderdale Terrorist #EstebanSantiago Joined MySpace As “Aashiq Hammad”, Recorded Islamic Music
They used Nexus search records to trace and identify him. They did some cross referencing. Looked up old records that matched. That’s how journalism used to work. Here’s what they dug up:
First they figured out what email he was associated with:
A search of public records database Nexis reveals that Puerto Rican Esteban Santiago has a brother named Bryan Santiago and two e-mails registered to his name:
The second e-mail, “Naota33@hotmail.com”, is how GotNews exclusively visually identified Santiago before every mainstream media outlet and discovered he was posting on an explosives/weapons forum about mass-downloading Islamic terrorist propaganda videos in 2007 yesterday.
Today, we discovered the first e-mail, “Naota017@gmail.com”, in the MySpace database that was leaked earlier this year. This is the raw data we found:
The middle entry “aashiqhammad” can be added to the MySpace URL to discover the profile that was registered to the e-mail address “Naota017@gmail.com”.
The trail led them to a weapons and explosives forum…
In 2007, someone using the username “Naota33”, the same as Santiago’s e-mail, posted on an explosives and weapons forum on a thread about mass-downloading propaganda videos from Islamic terrorists.
But that’s probably a coincidence, right? Because he is speaking negatively of the videos, right?
Hold that thought. let’s check a second source.

Well look at that! Corraboration!
Let’s check out that recorded music on MySpace…
(Remember kids… the internet ‘is forever’)
Sure enough, Esteban Santiago registered a MySpace account under the name “Aashiq Hammad”:
The song “La ilaha illAllah” by “aashiq” is indeed just an Arabic recitation of the Muslim declaration of faith “There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is his messenger.” We recorded the song and you can download and listen to it for yourself here.
“Intentional” recitation of the Shahadah is generally considered sufficient to convert to Islam. Listen to that song. It sure sounds like Esteban Santiago was “intentional” about what he was saying!
And the best part?
That song was recorded in 2007, 3 years before Esteban Santiago went to Iraq as a U.S. soldier in 2010, destroying the lying mainstream media’s narrative that he was a “mentally disturbed veteran” –GotNews
There’s your Islam connection. Remember how Podesta wished the shooter in San Bernadio were white and the interview were Muslim?
You can expect that same longing to linger in the media.
But now you can follow the breadcrumbs for youself and make up your OWN mind.
