Fort Lauderdale shooter says he carried out attack for ISIS, FBI says

January 18, 2017

FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida (CNN) — Esteban Santiago, the man charged with killing five people at the Fort Lauderdale airport, told FBI agents he carried out the attack on behalf of ISIS, FBI special agent Michael Ferlazzo testified at Santiago’s bond hearing Tuesday.

The agent did not elaborate on whether Santiago was purporting to be linked to ISIS or simply inspired by the terrorist organization.

Federal authorities in Alaska said Santiago told them prior to the attack that he was hearing voices and that his mind was being controlled by the CIA. Santiago made no such claim during the six-hour interview conducted shortly after the January 6 shooting at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, Ferlazzo testified.

ISIS has not claimed responsibility for the attack.

Ferlazzo, who conducted the interview, said only that Santiago claimed to be fighting for ISIS and that he’d been in touch with like-minded people via jihadi chat rooms who were planning attacks as well.

    This is the very reason ISIS and their supporters should be executed when discovered> Think this is unchristian? ISIS and friends will kill you just for the fun of it. They have no compassion for anything except, “Thou shalt kill the infidel”.

    Never doubted this. He loved ISIS easy to see from the start. Airport, one way ticket, shooting strangers as many as he could, head shots, new tactic that, executed them. Already went to FBI mentioning ISIS, put in mental facility then let go. Why let him go after he talks of ISIS? You make sure he is put into a hospital for intense mental testing.

    How many times has the FBI known what these people are and let them go.

    This murderer needs to understand that many people in chat rooms will never go beyond thought. He also needs to realize one person may have several identities. If these people have no problem murdering people it is unlikely they are going to have problems lying.

    Whatever his reasons, this man murdered five people and affected the lives of many others. He needs to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Hopefully the jury will give him the death penalty. He had no problem taking the lives of others so he should have no problem with the government taking his life.
