WOW: FBI was considering making Pulse nightclub shooter Omar Mateen a confidential informant!

This morning the news broke that Omar Mateen’s father, Seddique Matteen, was an informant to the FBI.

Now we find out that the FBI was considering making Omar Mateen himself a confidential informant after finding no ties to terrorism, via FBI Special Agent Juvenal Martin who testified this morning in Noor Salman’s trial:

At that point Martin was finished giving his testimony.

It’s amazing that the FBI was this involved with Mateen and yet never realized he was a jihadist in the making. I don’t know when these interviews took place, but we’ve posed on reports where Mateen threatened to have Al Qaeda kill a sheriff deputy and his family for a statement the deputy made about the Middle East.

I guess he was just being stupid then too.
