Drugs and Mental Illness Behind Chattanooga Shooting
FBI: no link found to ISIS
A representative for the family of Mohammod Abdulazeez says the 24-year old Chattanooga shooter had abused both prescription and non-prescription drugs, including sleeping pills, opioids, painkillers, marijuana and alcohol.
Abdulazeez’s diary reveals he was suicidal and entertained thoughts of “becoming a martyr” after losing a job due to his drug and alcohol abuse.
Moreover, Abdulazeez was thousands of dollars in debt and was considering bankruptcy before he attacked two military targets in Tennessee.
His family attempted to get Abdulazeez help for mental illness and tried without success to keep him away from friends who drank and smoked marijuana.
Prior to the emergence of the dairy the corporate media portrayed Abdulazeez, a naturalized American citizen, as a radicalized Muslim.
The SITE Intelligence Group said Abdulazeez blogged that “life is short and bitter” and Muslims should not miss an opportunity to “submit to Allah.”
The blog posts have yet to be independently verified and the FBI has said it has yet to find a link between Abdulazeez and ISIS or any other extremist group.
The Search for International Terrorist Entities Intelligence Group (SITE) was co-founded by Rita Katz and consists of her and two “senior advisers,” one of whom is Bruce Hoffman, the Corporate Chair in Counterterrorism and Counterinsurgency at the RAND Corporation and former director of the RAND’s Washington DC office.
In 2003 and 2004, SITE received financial support from the US government. Also in the early 2000s SITE was on contract providing consulting services to the FBI.
Over the weekend Infowars.com reported that retired US Army General and the former Supreme Allied Commander of Europe for NATO Wesley Clark advocated rounding up “radicalized” and “disloyal” Americans and putting them in internment camps for the “duration” of the war on terror.
