We were all stunned last June when we saw the reports come flooding in about the terrorist attack at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida where 49 people were killed.
It was yet another painful reminder that radical Islam is on the march and will stop at nothing in their quest to kill Americans.
The shooter’s wife, Noor Salman, appeared to be off the hook when it came to being connected to the crime but that all changed today.
She was arrested for obstruction of justice today.
From ABC News:
The wife of the gunman who carried out a mass shooting an Orlando, Florida, nightclub was arrested by the FBI today in San Francisco, the FBI and her lawyer said.
Gunman Omar Mateen‘s wife, Noor Salman, was charged with obstruction of justice and with aiding and abetting Mateen’s attempted provision and provision of material support to ISIL, the U.S. Attorney’s office said, referring to the terror group also known as ISIS.
She is expected to appear in court on Tuesday for a first appearance, her lawyer told ABC News. Salman is expected to be extradited to Tampa, Florida, where she was indicted.
Noor knew about the planned attack on the Pulse nightclub and failed to report the information to authorities according to NBC News:
Noor told the FBI she was with him when he bought ammunition and a holster, several officials familiar with the case said. She told the FBI that she once drove him to the gay nightclub, Pulse, because he wanted to scope it out.
It’s unimaginable that someone could know a devastating terror attack is coming and not say anything.
Hopefully, Salman will be punished to the fullest extent of the law.
