Orlando Killer Worked For Company Transporting Illegal Immigrants Inside US; Was Interviewed By FBI 3 Times

Tyler Durden's picture

In a surprising discovery, the Palm Beach Post first reported that according to state records, Orlando shooter Omar Mateen - who as we reported earlier was licensed as a security guard and also holds a firearms license - was employed by the US subsidiary of G4S plc, a British multinational security services company, whose US-headquarters are located in Jupiter, Fla, and which also happens to be the world's largest security company by revenue. 

Shortly thereafter, G4S confirmed that Omar Mateen has worked for the company since 2007. This is the statement released from G4S:

“We are shocked and saddened by the tragic event that occurred at the Orlando nightclub. We can confirm that Omar Mateen had been employed with G4S since September 10, 2007. We are cooperating fully with all law enforcement authorities, including the FBI, as they conduct their investigation. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the friends, families and people affected by this unspeakable tragedy.”

In other words, Mateen who according to preliminary reports, had been on a terrorist watchlist, and who still managed to obtain weapons thanks to his various licenses and permits just last week, was employed by one of the world's largest security companies, where he may have had extensive clearances well above his pay grade, not to mention access to sophisticated military weapons and equipment.

But where it gets more disturbing is that as Judicial Watch reported several days ago, in a post titled, "DHS Quietly Moving, Releasing Vanloads Of Illegal Aliens Away From Border", border patrol sources said that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was quietly transporting illegal immigrants from the Mexican border to Phoenix and releasing them without proper processing or issuing court appearance documents. As a reminder, the government classifies them as Other Than Mexican (OTM) and this week around 35 were transferred 116 miles north from Tucson to a Phoenix bus station where they went their separate way. Judicial Watch was present when one of the white vans carrying a group of OTMs arrived at the Phoenix Greyhound station on Buckeye Road.

And this is where the Mateen-G4S link emerges: as JW reported previously, a security company contracted by the U.S. government is driving the OTMs from the Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector where they were in custody to Phoenix, sources said. The firm is the abovementioned G4S, the world’s leading security solutions group with operations in more than 100 countries and 610,000 employees. G4S has more than 50,000 employees in the U.S. and its domestic headquarters is in Jupiter, Florida.

Judicial Watch noted that it had filed a number of public records requests to get more information involving the arrangement between G4S and the government, specifically the transport of illegal immigrants from the Mexican border to other parts of the country. The photo below shows the uniformed G4S guard that transported the OTMs this week from Tucson to Phoenix.

Outraged Border Patrol agents and supervisors on the front lines say illegal immigrants are being released in droves because there’s no room to keep them in detention. “They’re telling us to put them on a bus and let them go,” said one law enforcement official in Arizona. “Just move those bodies across the country.” Officially, DHS denies this is occurring and in fact earlier this year U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske blasted Border Patrol union officials for denouncing this dangerous catch-and-release policy. Kerlikowske’s scolding came in response to the congressional testimony of Bandon Judd, chief of the National Border Patrol Council, the labor union that represents line agents. Judd told lawmakers on the House Judiciary Committee that illegal immigrants without serious criminal convictions can be released immediately and disappear into the shadows. Kerlikowske shot back, telling a separate congressional committee: “I would not stand by if the Border Patrol was — releasing people without going through all of the formalities.

Meanwhile, the Hill reported that Mateen's employment, and gun licenses, were untouched even though the FBI confirmed it had interviewed the 29-year-old three times before the shooting took place early Sunday morning.  An official said that the FBI first became aware of the suspect, Omar Mateen, 29, in 2013 when he made "inflammatory comments to coworkers alleging possible terrorist ties."

 In the course of that investigation, Mateen was interviewed twice, but the FBI was unable to verify the substance of his comments.

Then, one year later, in 2014 the FBI conducted an investigation into possible ties between Mateen and an American suicide bomber. The FBI conducted another investigation, which included an interview with Mateen, but determined that the contact did not constitute a threat at that time. Which may be an overstatement: the FBI's 2014 probe allegedly found that the  Orlando shooter had "minimal" contact with Florida al-Nusra fighter Moner Abusalha who blew himself up in Syria.

In 2015, after Moner Abusalha became the first American suicide bomber in Syria, the FBI investigated Omar Mateen’s connection to Abu-Salha. Abu-Salha went to the Middle East, trained, and returned to the Treasure Coast, specifically Vero and fort Pierce, to recruit. The FBI says he didn’t recruit anyone, but it’s possible he did have contact with Mateen.

The FBI said it is looking into any and all connections, both domestic and international to the shooting. It appears to have found nothing despite it all being laid out in front of its face. 

The agent at Sunday afternoon’s press briefing also confirmed reports that the shooter called 911 before the massacre, and said his remarks had general connections to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terror group. The content of those calls is now federal evidence.

* * *

It gets even more bizarre: despite his chequered history and his numerous FBI encounters, the Orlando Police just reported that he had managed to purchase firearms in just this past week.

A Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives spokesperson confirmed that Mateen legally purchased 2 firearms — a handgun and a long gun, “within the past few days.”

* * *

Armed with all this information, the big question, now that it has emerged that Mateen worked for the same company that has been tasked - under questionable circumstances - to transport illegals into the US, is whether or not this individual who swore allegiance to ISIS moments before the worst mass shooting and who was also employed by G4S for almost a decade, and who had been interviewed by the FBI three times and yet still managed to buy guns just last week, was also tasked in any way in facilitating the transport of illegal immigrants across the border, and if so, whether he helped other like-minded radical islamists enter the country.

We are confident all these questions will be addressed by the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI and the government, and that the media - liberal or otherwise - will promptly follow up on these key questions.

Wow. Obama is an absolute failure without question. I'm embarrased to be an American with him as our leader. Disgusted.

Obama would in no way consider this a failure.  He would see it as one of his greatest achievements.

I remember someone commenting here after Trump's muslim ban proposal, that Trump is putting his chips in there being a huge terrorist attack before the election. Well, that person was correct. And so is Trump.

That line at the end about being sure the MSM will get right to asking the above mentioned questions is comedy gold. Yes, I'm sure they'll get right on that. Id love to see someone like opensecrets.org release a list of which politicians G4S has given money to. I'd guess nearly all of them... That'll go a long way to predicting exactly how much scrutiny all this gets. I'd guess not a whole lot.

Take your pick:
1) I think the whole thing is pure theater.
2) The Mossad is on overdrive.
3) Omar is probably a Latino. Martin in Spanish is pronounced Mateen - just watch Gabriel "Fluffy" Iglesias when he does his comedy routine and poke fun of his friend "Mateen". But to get the war on terror sham going, they pronounced him Afghan and Muslim.

“He was not a stable person. He beat me. He would just come home and start beating me up because the laundry wasn’t finished or something like that.” — Shooter’s ex-wife.


“My son was very angry after seeing 2 men kissing.” — Shooter’s father.


I guess beating the mother in front of the son was OK.


It’s amazing the inability of some minds not to reason around some basic human rights while believing in some magic man on the sky.

Perhaps it is time for the 'Gay Brigade' to realize Islam has brought the war to them, and that they should man up.

Also curious of the weaponry utilized.
Only 'Handgun and Long-gun' described by Msm and Fbi.
Usually, typical Black Guns are castigated.

Makes me wonder if one of G4S's select fire rifles was compromised.

SO they let him walk right in with a rifle and a gun? Geez. Doesn't this smell of pure manure to you?

Never see vid's or stills of shooters in action.


Shooting 100+, killing 50, requires reloading, likely several times.


Chaotic bar full of drunken, gay Latinos at last call is perfect cover for false flag.

We have heard Middle Easterners are coming across the Mex border too.

Must have had Chinese co-worker, they are down at the border as well.

Because lots of Mexicans have Afghan parents.

Makes perfect sense.

Hopefully this will shed light on BOTH the PC racked scum at G4S for letting this happen, as well as the invasion the company is facilitating under 0bama's orders.

It's all war, its all empire.

How did his parents get here, must have been helping Brzezinski in Afghanistan fight the Soviets for his grand chessboard.

As I said long ago, the unmasking is occurring. The powers that be are being exposed at every turn and when this is over

won't be here or there anymore. They wanted global control, so they are hunted globally now.

Now they will try the Gay Holocaust to collect guns, bet on it.

btw Jupiter Florida is where Michelle Fields accussed Trumps campaign manager of knocking her to the ground.

The Chief of Police is Jewish and you can find him online hooked up with AIPAC.

False flags always occur with a friendly mayor, ususally govenor and Chief of Police to cover it all up and make it look real.

jeff montanye's picture

it has been reported that the mateens immigrated here in the 1980's and omar was born here in 1986 so operation cyclone is definitely a precursor.  don't anyone forget the importance of the mossad and pakistani isi who with the cia armed, funded, trained and directed the mujahideen, including bin laden's al qaeda against the soviets, leading to the takeover of afghanistan by the taliban.

What will it take, for the world (so called civilized world) to wake up and realize that Islam IS NOT a religion of peace!  Home grown or imported, they are ALL dangerous because they follow a lunatic caravan raider, that dyed his beard red, married his aunt and little girls, and declared himself a prophet!

I went to Democratic Underground this AM to see what they were saying.

I kid you not......."Christians need to be called out for this one"


Yes it is the guns.

I would expect a false flag in London now that the Brits want to exit as well.

But we shoudl kill muslims.   WTF is going on here on Zerohedge?



greenskeeper carl's picture

No, we shouldn't go out and kill Muslims, or anyone else for that matter. We should withdraw all of our troops and fleets from that region, leave those people to their own devices. If they want to live like barbarians from the Middle Ages, why should we expend blood or money to stop it? The second part of that is to stop fucking letting them into the country. Do both of those things, killing anymore people anywhere won't be necessary.

Great idea, I support it 110%.

However, the Owners of the USA will not let that happen. They need Assad gone and Russia in flames.

If Russia is in flames, most of the world will be as well.

I will also say stop disrespecting their prophet. chances of some one out of a billion people take MG and start shooting randomly and you getting hit are more than winning a power ball.

Cloud9.5's picture

I have a better idea.  Why not sic the Southern Poverty Law Center on the mosque and Iman that called for the death of these people and sue the hell out of them, bankrupt this local chapter of idiots and get on with the rest of our lives.

As for respect of the prophet is concerned, non-Muslims have no duty to respect the tenants of sharia law.  To live in fear of a minority who would murder us for our secular beliefs on this matter is to surrender to the terrorists. As horrific this event is, it is a statistical anomaly. We all have a better chance of being killed in traffic than getting shot up by a would be terrorist.  We would be fools to surrender a single freedom as the result of this event.


There is a reason Louis Farrakhan sides with Trump on this issue.  He understands that a handful of radicals can turn the whole country against Islam.  Should that happen, the balkanization will begin and the radicals on all sides of the social fracture will unfurl their colors.  Keep this up and the Knights of Malta will ride again and the Knights Templar will reorganize.

The Zionists hate Muslims more than your average Southerner. Does it make sense now?

Sorry, the Zionists hate thinking white Christians most of all. They can be dangerous whilst Muslims are easier to manipulate...


jeff montanye's picture

no,  they don't hate muslims, they hate anyone who gets in the way of greater israel.


they are ok with the house of saud; they worked extensively with pakistan's isi and al qaeda in afghanistan in operation cyclone against the soviets; their support of the muslim brotherhood is legendary and spans decades and continents; their doctors bind the wounds of daesh and send them back into battle against assad, the russians and hezbollah; they are happy to help erdogan's family (and daesh) enrich themselves on stolen syrian and iraqi oil . . . .


why they even let a few arabs help them out on 9-11.
