Omar Mateen: Why a profile is not necessary

From The Last English Prince:
Attorney General Loretta Lynch has announced that a profile will be built of Omar Mateen so that we can “move forward” and also see that another attack is averted. 
There is no need for a profile of Omar Mateen. There is no need for a forensic necropsy. 
The extensive profile, a necropsy, is available within the body of work which I call the Qur’anic Sciences. 
Here is what Omar Mateen stated during his attack: 
“I pledge of allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi of the Islamic State ….” 
After the first and the second ‘Aqabah Pledge, a group of men later gave pledge to Muhammad whilst under a tree. 
Pledging allegiance is of such importance that when Muhammad died men also lined up to pledge allegiance to Abu Bakr as the first Caliph of Islam. Regarding Abu Bakr and the allegiance afforded him it is noted within Shi’a literature that his men “displayed cunning and political acumen and neither did they shrink from violence.” * 
Within the Islamic gestalt there is a strong principle of declaring allegiance and also not shrinking from the battle. There is actually a limited menu of options for turning the back on the battle against the enemy. You will find these allowances within the Qur’an. Yusuf Ali covers it best. 
Omar Mateen pledged allegiance. He displayed cunning. He did not shrink from violence. 
Until we are honestly able to profile a body of work we will miss the signals. Islam is signal, symbol and code. 
In coming weeks smug analysts will deliver the profile of a disturbed mind. Golf claps all around. Will they deliver a profile of what disturbs the mind? Probably not. 
We cannot deal with shockers. Humans, as a species, do not like to be made to feel uncomfortable. Let me make you uncomfortable. Ideological pathology does not issue forth from a vacuum. Omar Mateen did not wake up one day and make this all up. He had a play book. 
We must tell the truth about what Islam teaches regarding violence. Until we tell the truth and call to account, the pathology will continue along until it is epidemic in proportions.

The truth about these jihad attacks is an inconvenient truth as far as the Obama Administration is concerned.

Furthermore, the Obama Administration will continue with the narrative they have promoted since Obama began occupying the Oval Office.

The epidemic proportions mentioned here are a certainty.

New Orlando Terrorist Details – Omar Mateen Purchased Family Airline Tickets Day Before… via Conservative Treehouse

Omar Mateen reportedly bought nearly $9,000 worth of jewelry days before attack

********‘Speaking of the suspect killed in the Pulse Bar massacre in Florida, Howell stated, “Omar was not suppose to be killed. They lied to us – Omar and Brandy were suppose to get away.”’

I’m not sure about this source, but this piece of information at least seems to check out.

IIRC, there were similar suggestions made by the arrested suspect who was found in a parked car with weapons - heading to the PRIDE parade in California.
