Leading Terror Expert Believes Stephen Paddock May Have Been ISIS Jihadi

Rukmini Callimachi, a terror expert who has studied the Islamic State for years, believes Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock may have been a jihadist. 

Daily Star UK reports:

Vile terror group ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack, but cops have rejected this, claiming there is no evidence that Paddock was linked to the group.

The death worshippers then went on to claim that Paddock had converted six months before the deadly shooting.

She wrote: “ISIS has rarely claimed attacks that were not by either their members or sympathisers.

“I don’t buy the argument that they are now opportunistically claiming attacks to deflect from battlefield losses.”

She added that ISIS members in chatrooms were declaring the incident as a cover-up, and that Paddock was “one of their brothers”.

She also wrote: “ISIS considers an attack to be their handiwork if the attacker is sent or inspired by them.”

The Islamic State tripled down on the Las Vegas massacre on Thursday.

The Islamic terrorist group claimed Stephen Paddock converted to Islam six months ago.
