FBI KNEW ARIZONA ISLAMIST WAS TARGETING TEXAS CONFERENCE!
They knew it hours before the attack occurred!
Elton Simpson (on left) , reportedly tweeted minutes before the attack that he and his fellow assailant had pledged allegiance to Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
The FBI knew Elton Simpson was heading to Garland, Texas.
But the event organizers WERE NOT Notified nor was their security team!
Shepard Smith reported on Thursday:
The FBI knew one of the gunmen in Sunday’s attack in Texas could be targeting the controversial Mohammad cartoon contest, anti-Islam conference… And they knew it hours before the attack occurred. That comes straight from the FBI director who just moments ago held a closed door meeting with reporters. The FBI put out a bulletin with suspect’s picture before the attack. He said it’s not clear if police in Garland, Texas knew about that bulletin.
