It would appear there is far more than was first released which may link Stephen Paddock, the mysterious man who killed 49 people at a Las Vegas Country Music Festival on Sunday, October 1, 2017 to connections in the Middle East. 

ISIS did release statements taking credit for the incident.

http://www.theblaze.com/news/2017/10/02/isis-takes-credit-for-las-vegas-mass-shooting-heres-what-they-said/

According to reports, ISIS claimed through a propaganda arm, Amaq News, that 64-year-old Stephen Paddock was a “solider” who converted to Islam just a few months ago.

“The Las Vegas attacker is a soldier of the Islamic State in response to calls to target coalition countries,” the agency claimed, according to the Independent UK.

According to reporters who cover the Islamic State, when the terrorist group takes credit for an attack, it is generally reliable. Many claim the Islamic State will take responsibility for any attack, but that isn’t true.

Further, the Washington Post analyzed the language Amaq uses in its statements last year following a string of attacks that were carried out by terrorists inspired by the Islamic State. The language in Monday’s statement mirrored previous statements. However, it must be emphasized that law enforcement has not confirmed the terrorists’ claims.

Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock wired $100,000 to an account in his live-in girlfriend’s home country, the Philippines, in the week before he unleashed the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history, according to multiple senior law enforcement officials.

comment: If he committed suicide isn't this similar to what Muslim would do after such an act? it is of course - and only a few mass murders kill themselves or feel any remorse for their deeds.

We have only to look at the brothers in the Boston Massacre which were inspired by people when they studied Islam and later propaganda materials were found.

Yet in this case, we have what appears to be an intelligent methodical person who according to his wife was a nice person she hoped to be with- she knew nothing of his actions nor did his own brother.

Is it possible that neither law enforcement or intelligence agencies may choose not to confirm a terrorist even if a person was one? 

It is a mystery and of course in any mystery when some things just don't add up, the truth may be forever hidden.

It is a little hard to be a millionaire and have the government unaware of you. Did he pay taxes.

Did he travel to suspicious Middle Eastern countries before the shooting? Yes, he did.

“Responding to the call of [Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi] to target the states of the Crusader alliance, and after careful observation of gatherings of the Crusaders in the US city of Las Vegas, one of the soldiers of the caliphate (Abu Abd al-Bar al-Amriki, may Allah accept him) lay hidden armed with machine guns and various ammunition in a hotel overlooking a concert,” it said.

It is already known which countries he took trips to, but finding out specific ones is still challenge. It is know that some of these were to the Middle East. Why would he go there?

Here it is.

http://www.news.com.au/world/north-america/stephen-paddock-had-recently-been-on-a-cruise-to-the-middle-east-as-experts-say-dont-discount-islamic-states-potential-involvement/news-story/4846b116c77f95140968c4cf967f0319

VEGAS killer Stephen Paddock visited the Middle East on a cruise within the last year, a police source has said.

The anonymous official confirmed the gunman had traveled on a dozen voyages over the past few years — one of which was to the region.

Police had earlier dismissed three claims by Middle Eastern terror group ISIS that Paddock carried out the attack on its behalf after converting to Islam six months ago.

comment: I think I am much further on this than most of our intelligence, law enforcement, or the media.  He was in the Middle East in the last year and could have made contacts there.

No one sits down and calculates all the variables as to the effectiveness of his gunfire on paper and executes a crime of this sort without some serious training. This was a well-executed planned attack.

He was not mentally ill in the sense of some sort of emotional break or crisis. This was carefully set up and he likely had help.

I would not be surprised to see them find a connection to ISIS who took credit for this. We still have a mysterious female contact that they have not released information on. Also there is a contact to a sister of his wife in Australia.

One of the terrorists on the plane that hit the World Trade Center in 9/11 was from Australia and I talked to a woman who got a message from him  the night before and tried to warn everyone that the attack was going to happen and was ignored.  We may never be told the truth about 9/11 either.

Something just doesn't add up. He had no history of mental illness. The "note" was not a suicide note as they first tried to say - and the reports of him shooting himself versus being taken down have stopped.

As I see it, most of them are clueless and I see a definite possibility here. They would be satisfied and have stated "we may never know".  Well, it's not over.

With our data-searching technology and records of travel by him to the Middle East - someone had to help this guy. It is that simple.

Stephen Paddock was never in the military and had no formal military or weapons training. Yet he was not only carrying weapons but had explosives as well. Where did he learn to even handle explosives. I remember during my military training that there are many consideration when dealing with explosives or making bombs. One can easily blow themselves up.

The mystery continues...

His wife was asked if he was with her when she traveled to Dubai - in the Middle East. What was she doing there in the first place and why do later records show he did got here?
Las Vegas Shooting ~ Stephen Paddock planned escape and other mass shootings “he had help”



He traveled to Dubai and UAE . Over the years I have researched weapons flow and sales around the world.

American weapons receipts rose to $36.2 billion in 2014 from $26.7 billion the year before, bolstered by multibillion-dollar agreements with Qatar, Saudi Arabia and South Korea. Those deals and others ensured that the United States remained the single largest provider of arms around the world last year, controlling just over 50 percent of the market.

How easy would it have been for him to go ashore and find just about any type of gun he wanted?

Why does someone need to have connections overseas to be classed as a terrorist? Timothy McVeigh didn't that I'm aware of.

Seems like we're trying awful hard to figure out why a white guy with access to lots of guns committed mass murder on US soil when, by and large, that's exactly who tends to carry out these atrocities.
