Former CIA Agent Revealed A Shocking Secret About The Las Vegas Shooter

culture, news

The facts surrounding the Las Vegas shooting are still shrouded in mystery.

Is law enforcement hiding something from the public?

Now, one ex-CIA agent stepped forward and revealed a huge secret about the shooter.

Ex-CIA officer Tony Shaffer was interviewed on Fox News, and he claimed law enforcement was withholding information about the shooter’s motivation.

He claims investigators know there was a political motivation to the shooting and they are keeping this knowledge from the public.

Independent Journal reports:

WHILE OFFICIALS HAVE YET TO DETAIL A MOTIVE IN THE LAS VEGAS SHOOTING, COL. TONY SHAFFER TOLD FOX NEWS ON WEDNESDAY THAT LAW ENFORCEMENT IS “HOLDING BACK” INFORMATION THAT WOULD SUGGEST A POLITICAL MOTIVE TO THE MASSACRE.

ACCORDING TO SHAFFER’S SOURCES, AUTHORITIES HAVE REVIEWED THE SHOOTER’S RECORDED FOOTAGE DURING THE ATTACK AND HAVE A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THE MOTIVATION.

“MY SOURCES TELL ME THEY REVIEWED THE INFORMATION ON THOSE VIDEOS AND THERE ARE THINGS THAT DO LAY OUT SOME UNDERSTANDING OF HIS MOTIVATION,” THE CIA-TRAINED FORMER SENIOR INTELLIGENCE OFFICER SAID, ADDING THAT OFFICIALS HAVEN’T RELEASED THE NEW INFORMATION BECAUSE OF “LEADS THEY WANT TO FOLLOW.”

WHEN PRESSED ON WHY OFFICIALS WERE RELUCTANT TO SHARE THE INFORMATION, SHAFFER SAID: “THERE IS A POLITICAL ANGLE PEOPLE ARE CONCERNED ABOUT.”

“THERE IS ONE LEGAL LAW ENFORCEMENT ISSUE, ACCORDING TO MY SOURCE,” HE SAID. SHAFFER ADDED THAT HIS SOURCES TELL HIM THERE’S CONCERN BEHIND THE SCENES REGARDING WHY CERTAIN INFORMATION, SUCH AS IMAGES OF THE GUNS USED IN THE ATTACK, HAVE LEAKED AND NOT THE VIDEO THAT THE SUSPECT REPORTEDLY RECORDED DURING THE SHOOTING.”

Was the political motivation terrorism?

In an earlier interview, Shaffer also described the shooting as a “deliberate act of terror.”

ISIS has made repeated claims of responsibility for the attack.

Though no evidence yet exists to tie the gunman to ISIS, the terrorist group claims he converted to Islam six months ago and their latest newsletter featured an image of the Mandalay Bay hotel drenched in blood.

What was the shooter’s motivation?

Was this an act of terrorism?

So far, no proof has been discovered to link ISIS to the killings.

But the investigation is still ongoing and the shooter’s motivation may yet be discovered.

We will keep you updated on any new developments in this story.
