Where is President Obama on this? That’s right. This was a Muslim terrorist named Mohamed Barry who went after people not somebody near a Planned Parenthood facility. There was no gun used so there’s nothing for Hillary Clinton or President Obama to exploit.
Thus far, this is being investigated as a “lone wolf” terrorist attack. Here’s some fun news: This guy was known to the FBI:
The machete-wielding man who allegedly injured four people in an attack at an Ohio restaurant before he was shot and killed by police was known to the FBI, but not under full scale investigation, law enforcement sources tell ABC News.
The suspect, identified as Mohamed Barry, 30, according to Franklin County Coroner Dr. Anahi Ortiz, was in a law enforcement database which includes names potentially related to terrorism, sources said. Being in the database would have flagged him if he came in contact with local authorities.
The FBI is investigating the suspect’s motive, Columbus Police Chief Kim Jacobs said at a news conference this afternoon, adding that the motive is not yet clear.
Barry had a Columbus address, but police do not yet know where he is from, Jacobs said.
The man’s attack was first reported at the Nazareth Restaurant and Deli in Columbus around 6 p.m. Thursday, the Columbus Police Department said today. The man allegedly walked into the restaurant, had a conversation with an employee and left, before returning about 30 minutes later, according to the Associated Press. That’s when he allegedly approached a man and a woman sitting by the door and launched his attack, the AP reported.
It doesn’t matter if this is a “lone wolf” attack. People (ie the left and the administration) attempting to downplay the terrorist threat, jump on the “lone wolf” theory to “prove” they’re not affiliated with the JV ISIS team.
The reality is, these people don’t need to be part of an “official” group. In fact ISIS is encouraging attacks such as these and there will likely be more. Instead of concern trolling over fictitious “backlash” against the Muslim community, perhaps the administration can have the FBI be a little more aggressive in dealing with people who are known to them for whatever reason.
Something this guy did put him on the FBI’s radar. The question has to be asked: Could this have been prevented?
