Muslim terrorists who actually commit attacks often have a history of red flags and investigations that were dropped for lack of evidence.
Details in the Plano Jihad attack by Imran Ali Rasheed are lacking. And that’s on purpose.
A man who shot and killed a Lyft driver in Garland on Sunday stole her car and drove to Plano Police Headquarters, where he tried to shoot people in the lobby before police fatally shot him, police said Monday.
There’s a note, but we’re not allowed to know what it says.
A note left in the vehicle of a Lyft driver who was shot and killed Sunday, August 29, suggests the murder suspect “may have been inspired by a foreign terrorist organization,” said Matthew DeSarno, Special Agent in Charge of FBI Dallas.
What’s in the note? It’s a mystery.
“We have no idea why he came to Plano to confront police officers,” Plano Police Chief Ed Drain said.
Little was said about Rasheed’s specific motive, but an official from the FBI’s Dallas office said they are investigating a written note that was found in Lewis’s car.
The note suggests that Rasheed was conducting a terrorist attack on behalf of some organization. Which organization? Can’t say.
“I’m not going to talk about the specific organization because I don’t want to give any organization the opportunity to claim any credit for this,” said FBI Special Agent Matthew De Sarno. “We believe at this point that he was inspired by rhetoric and/or propaganda by a foreign terrorist organization.”
Or have the Biden admin suffer a hit. So the American public doesn’t get that information either.
But somehow if that note had been about Trump, QAnon, or vaccines, I somehow suspect it would on every channel in the country and in every detail with no concerns about credit.
But odds are that it’s Al Qaeda or ISIS.
The ‘X’ here though is that the FBI insists that Rasheed was acting alone. And yet he had been previously investigated.
Rasheed was the subject of a Dallas FBI counterterrorism investigation from 2010 to 2013, said DeSarno.
“All investigative steps were taken. I’m comfortable the investigation was done thoroughly and properly,” he said.
That case was then closed it was determined that Rasheed did not pose a threat at that time, DeSarno said. That investigation was initially opened to see if he was involved in activities with foreign terrorist organizations and was a threat to the public.
I think we got our answer.
