Report: ISIS Is Claiming Responsibility For Las Vegas Attack

Officials have identified the shooter as Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old American who had multiple weapons on the 32nd floor of a nearby hotel, where he is believed to have killed himself.

A statement published by the group’s Amaq propaganda agency claimed the attacker was a “soldier of the Islamic State”.

“The Las Vegas attacker is a soldier of the Islamic State in response to calls to target coalition countries,” it said.

Isis also claimed the gunman “converted to Islam several months ago”, without providing more details.

The wording of the release is similar to other attacks that have been inspired, rather than directed, by Isis.

The claim, which cannot be independently verified, came days after Isis released a speech purporting to be from the group’s leader.

A 46-minute audio recording appeared to show Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi praise the jihadis killed in the battle to retake Mosul and other former Isis territories.

He urged followers to “intensify one attack after another against the infidels”, following a spike in global terror attacks.

Security officials and experts have long warned that Isis will seek to maintain momentum and legitimacy through terror as its so-called “caliphate” dwindles in Iraq and Syria.

Keep in mind that while an ISIS group is claiming this, there is no evidence yet that it is true.

Multiple sources are reporting this:

Exactly, 1:44. I had questioned his ties to Islam from the beginning but I still doubt whether ISIS had anything to do with the attack.

She's been in Dubai but not this time. Was in the Philippines (where he just wired $100,000) and is now in Japan I believe. Scheduled to return to the US tomorrow. Just for the record ISIS is heavy in the Philippines.

The Dems have a responsibility of these killings. He was seen at a anti Trump rally and listening to these Dems spewing hatred along with the MSM. This is the same thing that occurred at the ball field

FBI is worthless.

I tried to report terrorist activity and they did not want to hear it.

On FBN, they had the congressman from there (or maybe he is local Pol) advising to be prepared for some very disturbing imagery to come out, said the gunman made videos while in the room.
I saw some pics of inside the room and on an hexagon shaped table looked like a note of some sort.

I'm calling bs. Their whole deal for "salvation" or jihad or whatever you call it is to blow themselves up. Suicide is not the way they typically end things. Seems like ISIS is just seizing the opportunity.

3:35 brown people moving in next door to you is not terrorist activity.
