FBI Explains Why It Redacted The 911 Transcript – “Simply Put, You Can’t Handle The Truth”

    This report was originally published at ZeroHedge.com

    With Speaker Ryan decrying the preposterousness of redacting the Orlando shooter's 911 call transcript, The FBI has been forced to explain itself (and its Obama administration-driven political-correctness). Simply put, "you (America) can't handle the truth," as the bureau argued that letting the public hear or even read the gunman’s justification for the attack in his own words risked encouraging further attacks.


    As The Intercept reports, doing nothing to advance the heated political debate over what combination of factors might have prompted Omar Mateen to open fire inside a gay nightclub in Orlando last week, the FBI on Monday refused to release the audio or a full transcript of the gunman’s phone conversations with the police during the attack.

    Although it is impossible to say what was left out — and the timeline refers to more than 29 minutes of conversations that are only very briefly summarized — it is worth noting that no part of the summary released by the FBI refers to any comments Mateen might have made about hatred of the LGBT community. NPR’s Dina Temple-Raston sparked a heated backlash online when she reported on Saturday that intelligence officials and investigators were “increasingly convinced that the motive for this attack had very little or maybe even nothing to do with ISIS.”

     At a news conference in Orlando on Monday morning, the assistant special agent in charge of the FBI’s Tampa field office, Ron Hopper, said that the while “the audio is compelling,” it would not be released as part of the effort not to glorify such attackers.

    Pressed by reporters as to why the transcript released on Monday was partial, and edited, Hopper seemed to refer to Mateen’s words about the other attackers.


    “Part of the redacting is meant to not give credence to individuals who have done terrorist attacks in the past,” he said, “we’re not going to propagate their rhetoric, their violent rhetoric, and we see no value in putting those individuals’ names back out there.”


    “We’re trying to prevent future acts from happening, again,” he continued, “and for cowards like this one, people like that influence them, so we are not going to continue to put their names out front.”

    You tell us – does this FBI Special Agent look comfortable with the establishment line?


    Finally, as Mediaite points out, thanks to the FBI and the administration, [omitted] has suddenly become Twitter's unwitting joke of the day.

      1. We handle the truth, every time.

        • Wilson : When was the last time they told the truth for us to handle? We never get the truth, therefore we never handle the truth. Now, if you said we can handle the truth, every time, well that is a hole new subject.
          If I had any say so, I would demand the truth every time. Weather we can handle it or not, it should be spoken. If I don’t want to hear it, I can turn it off, and stick my head in the sand. They don’t want to rile us up. WE NEED TO BE RILLED UP. We need to be pissed off. We need to hold obolo and our guberment accountable.

          • it is BEYOND time to hold -em accountable, they have shown there true colors as TRAITORS and they need to be removed from office and tried for treason! we have 1/2 of our government is traitorous and should be made a example by them swinging from a light pole on the beltway (of course after there fair trial)

            • Apache54

              Not going to happen.

              • Anon,
                I know that it won’t happen BUT that does NOT mean it should not happen!! and we have to hope and PUSH for it to happen IF we ever want this country to survive, or at some point those of us who are openly negative about the feds will be rounded up and we will be the ones targeted! so do YOU make a line in the sand of what you will tolerate or do you just hide your head in the sand and wait for the final blow! only you can answer that, being a sheeple is a part of the problem! I am NOT slamming you just making a point.

          • That is exactly what I intended to say, We CAN handle the truth. fat fingers!!

        • SITREP:
          What your Covernment, FBI, and TREASONOUS Pretend president obummer are doing for You:

          -You are seldom if EVER given the Truth.
          -You are LIED to on a continuous basis.

          Divide and Conquer:
          -You are goaded into Anti-Semitism. ( Idiots with low IQ always blames jews.)
          -You are goaded and media manipulated into CLASS warfare.
          -You are being media manipulated into RACE warfare. (Racism also targets low IQ,)
          -You are being Provoked into a civil war by a COMMUNIST TRAITOR obummer sitting as poser pretend president of the “changed” amerikka.

          The Big One: WW3
          -You are being manipulated into a world war 3 NUCLEAR conflict with Russia/China.
          RE-READ THIS ONE. Understand why God’s people should leave USSA.

          Your Plan should be:
          -Get Squared Away.
          -Pray to God.
          -Leave USSA. Do NOT be here when the Bankers have their made up WAR.

          USSA Amerikka is slated for Economic, Moral, and PHYSICAL destruction by world powers and TRAITOR obummer does ALL of the bidding of his Internationalist-One World-UN Agenda 21-Banker/Super Rich Bilderberg, masters. obummer is just a lap dog for the ones pulling strings to DESTROY what was Once YOUR America.

          Sometimes the obvious truth hurts. But you allowed this to happen. We all were silent living our lives while we were INVADED from within by a Fifth column.
          Now invaded by ILLEGALS that HATE America. Allowed by TRAITOR obummer.

          Your preps won’t help for long in a Russia/China vs. USSA nuclear war.
          Leave USSA while you still can. Save your Family.

          • Hey willy . Read what low IQ . Famous men have said about the Jews. Including Washington Jefferson and Franklin. Not to mention Jesus calling them the children of Satan. And God saying I know the blasphemy of those that call themselves Jews but are of the synagogue of Satan. Yea a bunch of low IQ types .. Who’s the real low IQ type?

          • Check out. Renegade tribune. When is it enought. Look what they all say. Domestic enemy?

          • …and go where?…hmmm

            Live Free or Die…cowards leave

        • ” A lie can travel twice round the world before the truth ever puts it’s shoes on”

      2. “We’re trying to prevent future acts from happening, again,” he continued, “and for cowards like this one, people like that influence them, so we are not going to continue to put their names out front.”

      3. TRUTH just stands there, being the truth. It is constantly being assaulted, yet never flinches. It is maligned, scoffed at, ridiculed, denied and defamed. Yet it remains.
        It bears the insults, the sneers and the denials. Still, there it stands, steadfast. It’s popularity is never very high and often near zero. But, there it is, changing nothing to gain greater appeal. It just keeps being the truth.
        Naysayers and deniers come and go. Throughout the ages there has been a steady stream of counterfeiters, each with a ‘newer’ lie. A ‘better’ tale. Before long, they all fall.
        But there stands the TRUTH/ Simple. elegant, unadorned. Unchanged and unchangeable.
        A thousand years ago it was true. Ten thousand years hence it shall be also. It needs not that anyone defend it. It is the TRUTH, after all.
        Jesus, praying to the heavenly Father for his disciples,and all that would believe on their word, said “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” (John 17:17)

        • That was a good post.

          Just read it aloud to my wife and two boys.

          I needed to read that today more than you’d think.

      4. The problem is that these people do not answer to the taxpayer.

      5. Brain-dead libturd sheeple are never able to handle the truth.

        • Howdy Brave : That is one reason for all the lies and BS.
          The other reason is they do not want to get the locals excited.

          • Fishandmud, give me truth any day over propaganda. Often the truth isn’t pretty but that’s part of life. I always know how to handle truth. That fed in the video had no problem sticking to the party line but I’ll bet those local cops in the background were uncomfortable with it.

        • And just what the fuck do the “GungHo” numbnut conservatards accomplish???

          NOTHING! Hahahahahahahaha…..

          Retards to the left of me, retards to the right…

          Your NO better than the rest of the chattel my man… No better.

      6. We are playing the game of “Truth or Consequences”.

        • Yeah but we are only getting consequences.

      7. OK by me. If this event is real, which I doubt, putting out the gunman’s reasons for such an attack could encourage more copycat attacks by like minded individuals. This is not the Kennedy assassination. It isn’t a historical event. We are dealing with a clear and present danger in immigrants with Islamic jihadist beliefs.

        Why the hell is our traitorous government bringing in more??? Do they like to see Americans getting shot down.

        We need to bring The Obama Administration traitors to trial for undermining the safety of American citizens. Stop immigration. Revoke the 1965 immigration law. Send Muslims to a safe place with other Muslims. Declare America officially a Christian country. Refuse to allow the practice of any supremist ideology. Declare Islam an enemy of Christianity and of America. While we are at it, declare The Talmud an enemy as well. Since it surely is. “Jesus is boiling in excrement for eternity. And his mother is a whore (shiksa) who slept with Roman soldiers.”

        • ” Send muslims to a safe place with other muslims ”

          I think HELL would be a safe enough place. Send them there in a truck load of pig $hit.

          • That poor pig shít.

            • CC, that’s an insult to the pig shit.

              • Exaclty

                im no rocket scientist but I do know that muzzies<pig shít

                if I rememeber correctly , war was decl la red on me not the other way around.

        • B. Good post. Agree with everything. I don’t know y our govt such idiots. Thry definitely are trying to infiltrate.

          • “I don’t know y our govt such idiots.”
            Idiots yes because they are TRAITORS, have committed TREASON, which requires a penalty of DEATH, IMPRISONMENT of not less than five years and a FINE of not less than $10,000

            18 U.S. Chapter 115 Code & 2381
            “Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”

            Problem: every one of this barack hussein obama regime is either directly guilty of the crime or complicit in allowing it, and obviously will not penalize themselves.

        • “could encourage more copycat”

          Thats the troubel with “Could” and “Maybe” and it is the state that alsways decides what “Could” happen and we are forced to run with it.

          The killer “Could” had been Gay like reports are sugesting and he “might” had been set-up as a fall guy and never made any phone calls at all to the the CIA/FBI

          Buldings that are not hit by a plane on 9/11 “Could” just fall down unlike any other steel framed building in the world and a lump of gold could just fall out of space and land on my head if you listen to what the government uses for excuses these days.

      8. SmokinOkie, outstanding post.

      9. Hmmmmm…can’t lose our most prolific donors…I guest we’ll just reverse that transcript back to the original….its on Drudge.

        Live Free or Die…steels resolve…whatever the fuck that means

      10. I believe within a very short time we are going to have to go vigilante. We are forced to obey their “laws”, they don’t have too. I’m sick of double standards, sick of liberals, sick of muslims, sick of hispanics, sick of politicians, sick of the whole damn thing. Soon the line will be crossed and folks will start taking out their local, then state, then federal “managers”. The anger temperature is about 210 degrees, it boils over at 212 degrees.

      11. While every media outlet is concentrating on what a dead terrorist may, or may not have said, they should be banging down the doors where a LIVE terrorist is being held in LA. Mr. Howell turned himself in during the course of his plan to attack a LGBT parade when he found out that fellow ‘crisis actor’ Omar got capped. Now THAT is a story worth pursuing.

      12. Terrorists coverup the actions of other terrorists, hence, the FBI won’t release the full transcript.

        It shouldn’t be any surprise actually. Remember how on 911 the FBI bastards immediately went and confiscated every video which showed what flew into the Pentagon. They fought tooth and nail to not release any of the footage to the public because they knew no 757 flew into the Pentagon.

      13. We better wake up and smell the coffee or our country will be over run with mosques and prayer rugs. The money spent on these people would be better spent on building tent cities in Jordan. It would be a hell of a lot cheaper and they would assimilate better there. they won’t here. Leave us alone and you will survive, mess with us…game on.

        • RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM! Can you hear me now? [SARCASM]

      14. Your children will convert to Islam or be killed. They will breed with your daughters till there are no more Christians. And your sons which you disowned will become martyrs for Allah. Sharia will be the law of the a land.

        • Anon, not happening with me. Muzzies come to f#$% with me they go straight to hell. Game on. Time for cowboys and sandapes.

          • Braveheart, NOT happening as long as there are still True Americans in our country. Islam is still doing what islam has been doing for 1200 years. Every single day, Islamists throughout the world commit grievous crimes of rape, torture and murder in the name of their ideology. It’s time to fight for our families, our nation, and our Freedom.

      15. Omitted

      16. No truth whatsoever, all lies all the time. That is the American experience, lies that enslave the people. Lies that degrade life itself.

      17. 9/11 was total complete utter bullshít too

        Im done participating in the charade.

        Bring your worst , demon scum

        MOLON LABE

        • Yup, they are indeed demon possessed, reptilian scum – through and through.

      18. It is the same BS, hiding behind the PC coverup. It might encourage similar attacks- probably would especially against the Orlando Police and the FBI for hiding the truth -they might just be attacked- your right. Bottom line- we are the slaves, the mentally slow, the retarded, the lower intelligence mass needing protection as “they” plunder, lie, duck and dodge questions and the truth on all matters and turn our country over to the Global Masters who despise us and all we stand for.
        “Please protect us Mr. President- don’t let the boogyman without a name hurt us!! Please take our guns so we don’t kill one another, or any of your “brethren” without a name.

      19. “Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority; still more when you superadd the tendency of the certainty of corruption by authority.” Lord Acton

        No truer words to describe that slime bag Islamic homo that has a tranny sitting beside him all of the time. This lying scum stays true to his Islamic handlers to the max each and every day. It is really a shame that more can’t see that this goat fucker and his minions are doing everything they can to destroy this country and then try and hand it off to the KFC poster child.

        The trail of death she has behind her and her thoughts on life should cause individuals to draw back in revulsion, but like bozo the first the stupid’s will believe anything from that hags and that goat humpers mouths.

      20. The term “Hate Speech” is being over used by the facists in power to silence people and you are not to question if the killer even made any phone calls or ask questions about him being “Gay” less you offend some people.

        Strange he had been a frequent vistitor to the gay bar for years and boys that he went to school with were “Hit on” as he tried to date them.

        What about the second planned killing by a guy that called the police when he worked out he was being set up by the CIA and handed himself with his weapons.

        Trust nothing you are being told and also notice that many of the wounded shown on news reports are being carried back to the gay bar after the shooting and not away from it as it looks like they are.

      21. I know I’ve posted this before, but I will do it again, until it sinks in… “But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.” From the Declaration of Independence

      22. The FBI had to omit the parts of the transcript when the patsy (oops, I mean the perp) advised that he had been trained for the attack by the FBI and was told that he would be allowed to slip away.

        • Exactly, Winston!

      23. If you’re so much for of a follower of God, why sell us the information instead of just giving and sharing it? A lot of lives are at stake and you want to sell survival tips? Go figure…
