Congrats America, we were just attacked by ISIS!
The Islamic State militant group claimed responsibility on Tuesday for the attack.
Abdul Razak Ali Artan, 20, was shot dead by a police officer on Monday moments after he plowed his car into a crowd of pedestrians and then leapt out and began stabbing people with a butcher knife.
Oh my god, so ISIS is in America and we are going to have bloody war for the next months, who knows how many more attacks are going to happen!
Investigators were probing the background of Artan, a Muslim who was a lawful permanent resident of the United States and a student at Ohio State.
We can only guess the motive – hatred against America!
So far, investigators have found no strong evidence linking Artan to other known militant individuals, cells or groups, said two federal law enforcement officials, who declined to be named because the probe is ongoing.
Artan’s actions fit the pattern of lone-wolf militants who carried out other attacks in the United States, such as the gunman who shot to death 49 people at a nightclub in Orlando, Florida, in June, and the man who killed four U.S. Marines and a Navy sailor in a shooting in Chattanooga, Tennessee, last year, the officials said.
The gunmen in those two attacks were also Muslim and were killed by police.
A federal official who asked not to be identified said that while Islamic State has claimed responsibility in other attacks, investigators have seen no evidence so far that the militant group’s role was anything more than inspirational.
Investigators were looking into a message posted on Facebook by Artan that contained inflammatory statements about being “sick and tired” of seeing Muslims killed and reaching a “boiling point,” a law enforcement source said.
Artan on Facebook also called Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S.-born radical cleric linked to al Qaeda’s Yemen wing, “a hero.” Awlaki was killed by a U.S. drone strike in 2011.
So why was this not a reason he to be immediately followed by FBI and CIA?! Why was he not on the watch list?!
In its claim of responsibility for Monday’s attack at Ohio State, the Islamic State news agency AMAQ posted a photo of Artan wearing a blue shirt and sitting with greenery in the background. It described him as a soldier of the group.
“Brother Abdul Razak Ali Artan, God accept him, implementer of the Ohio attack, a student in his third year in university,” the caption read.
Great! How many more brothers of ISIS are in the US?!
Artan, who was born in Somalia, arrived in the United States in 2014, said a federal official, who also asked not to be identified. Ohio State University Police Chief Craig Stone said Artan was 20 years old.
Investigators believe Artan may have lived for as long as seven years in Pakistan, said the federal official, who declined to be named because of the ongoing investigation. Somali refugees often spend some time in Pakistan before coming to the United States, another official said.
Trump has to appoint very strong people on the important government positions. This has to be stopped immediately! America is in huge danger!
