According to a shocking new report the man who was arrested in connection with a bloody massacre in Boulder, Colorado on Monday, Ahmad Al Aliwi Issa, was known to the FBI well before his rampage.
Yet in spite of the FBI being aware of Al Issa’s dangerous nature he was till able to purchase firearms in Colorado.
As Townhall reports:
Here we are again. The man arrested for killing 10 people at a grocery store in Colorado Monday night was on the FBI’s radar and had ties to another individual that agents were investigating.
“The suspect’s identity was previously known to the F.B.I. because he was linked to another individual under investigation by the bureau, according to law enforcement officials,” The NYT reports. “Court records show he was born in Syria in 1999, as did a Facebook page that appeared to belong to the suspect, giving his name as Ahmad Al [Aliwi] Issa.”
Al Aliwi Issa was able to legally purchase a firearm and passed a background check six days before his rampage.
How many times does this happen? Is it because FBI Director Wray is too busy chasing down Grandmas who wandered around the Capitol? pic.twitter.com/1x4hOOTANg

As noted yesterday, Al Aliwi Issa’s Facebook page, before it was taken down, was full of posts about “Islamaphobia” and he heavily criticized President Trump’s policies to combat terrorism. The FBI is still claiming a motive is unknown.
The #Boulder, Colo. mass shooting suspect who is accused of killing 10 people is an immigrant from Syria. His full name is Ahmad al-Aliwi al-Issa. His online posts show he was a deeply religious Muslim. pic.twitter.com/57vokI5jFz
