Likewise Noor Salman, Omar Mateen’s wife, also denied knowing anything was afoot with her her cherub of a husband: all those weapons and that bad attitude. Please. Mateen even told the FBI about his orientation as an aspiring terrorist. The FBI thought he was kinda cute.
At the time, Attorney General Loretta Lynch (confirmed by Republican lickspittles) stepped up to assure the public that federal authorities were scouring their contacts with Mateen, and those around him, to ferret out whether they’d missed anything. When grilled about Mateen’s wife, a key figure in the investigation and a possible co-conspirator, Lynch replied that Noor Salman was … missing.
I guess we have all the proof we need of Marilou Danley’s innocence: Her sisters went on Australian TV and wept a lot. And she returned to the US from vacation. Oh, an Australian TV anchor said she was “just a good woman.”
The End. Proof positive. QED (quod erat demonstrandum).
Does the FBI, preoccupied with setting up elaborate plots to entrap idiots, ever lean hard on a suspect?
