It takes a special level of cowardly evil to open fire on a bunch of civilians who are out for an evening of fun.

"Awesome" ends in "Me".


I think not.

THIS was the largest mass shooting in America.

I knew there were bigger ones than this.

Orlando Shooting: Omar Mateen's Wife Arrested
by Pamela Brown, Evan Perez and Adam Levine, CNN
January 16, 2017

Federal authorities have arrested the wife of Pulse nightclub shooter Omar Mateen in connection with their investigation into the June mass shooting, FBI spokesman Prentice Danner said Monday.

Noor Salman faces federal charges, which were filed in the Middle District of Florida, including obstruction of justice and aiding and abetting Mateen's material support to ISIS, according to a law enforcement official.

The arrest was first reported by the New York Times.

Authorities believe Salman acted of her own free will and knowingly took steps to obstruct the investigation into the shooting, according to a law enforcement official.

The official said her claims that she was coerced through her husband's abusive behavior did not stand up.

Another official says the evidence will show that she was complicit and knew her husband was going to do something bad.

Attorneys for Salman have not responded to CNN's request for comment. CNN's Dan Simon visited her family's home in Rodeo, California, for reaction and was told "no comment."

"I am glad to see that Omar Mateen's wife has been charged with aiding her husband in the commission of the brutal attack on the Pulse nightclub," said Orlando Police Chief John Mina.

"Federal authorities have been working tirelessly on this case for more than seven months, and we are grateful that they have seen to it that some measure of justice will be served in this act of terror that has affected our community so deeply."

Salman was arrested in the San Francisco area Monday morning, Danner said. She will have a court appearance on Tuesday in Oakland, California, according to Assistant US Attorney Abraham Simmons.

Salman, who married Mateen in 2011, came under increasing scrutiny as authorities investigated Mateen, who killed 49 people and injured more than 50 others when he opened fire at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

A law enforcement official told CNN last year that authorities were looking into whether Salman should face charges.

Salman gave conflicting accounts about what she knew of Mateen's intentions in the hours before the attack, authorities said last year. Salman, who was Mateen's second wife, had been cooperating with various law enforcement agencies after the attack last June.

Months before the attack, Mateen added the name of his wife to his life insurance policy and made sure she had access to his bank accounts, two law enforcement officials said. The gunman transferred his share of the home in which his sister and brother-in-law lived to them for just $10.

Mateen also bought his wife an expensive piece of jewelry, the sources said.

Salman told investigators that in the weeks leading up to the attack, Mateen spent thousands of dollars, buying among other things the guns used in the massacre. In April, he visited Disney World with his wife, and Disney security officials believe he was conducting surveillance, a law enforcement official told CNN.

Two days before the attack, he left his house angry and was carrying a bag of guns, his wife told investigators. Salman begged her husband not to leave and grabbed him by the arm, she said.

She told the FBI her husband said he wanted to carry out a jihadist attack, though she denied knowledge of his plans to launch the deadliest mass shooting in US history, a law enforcement official told CNN in June.

Two hours after the attack started, Mateen texted his wife at 4 a.m. and asked her whether she heard the news about the shooting. At one point, Salman told Mateen that she loved him.

FBI investigators initially didn't believe she was a co-conspirator in the attack but were looking into whether she should face charges for what information she may have had about Mateen's intentions, which she possibly failed to report to law enforcement.

Florida Nightclub Gunman's Widow Knew of his Plan, US Prosecutors Say
by Curtis Skinner
Feb. 1, 2017

The widow of the gunman behind the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history knew he was planning an attack and concocted a cover story for him, federal prosecutors said in a California court on Wednesday.

Prosecutors revealed new details about their case against Noor Salman, 30, as they argued she should remain jailed on charges stemming from the June 2016 shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Donna Ryu did not immediately rule, instead ordering psychiatric and psychological tests for Salman.

Salman was arrested earlier this month in the San Francisco Bay Area on federal charges of obstructing justice and aiding her late husband, Omar Mateen, in his attempt to provide material support to a terrorist organization.

She admitted knowing Mateen left their house with a firearm and a backpack full of ammunition before the Pulse nightclub shooting, Assistant U.S. Attorney Sara Sweeney told a federal judge in Oakland.

Sweeney also said Salman devised a cover story, directing Mateen to tell his parents, if asked, that he was at dinner with a friend.

"Noor aided and abetted her husband and repeatedly lied to the government," Sweeney said, calling her a "very calculating and callous person" who should be detained until her trial in Florida.

"Salman knew her husband was leaving to commit an attack and her actions contributed to the deaths of 49 people," she added.

Sweeney also alleged Salman accompanied Mateen on "casing" trips to two other locations, including Downtown Disney in Orlando, in the days before the shooting.

The prosecutor said Mateen asked Salman whether she thought people would be more upset by an attack on Downtown Disney or a club. Sweeney did not say whether Salman answered or specify her role in those trips.

Defense attorney Charles Swift said Salman's alleged admissions occurred after 18 hours in police custody, during which she was interrogated without a lawyer. Prosecutors have yet to provide written or recorded evidence of Salman's alleged admissions, Swift noted.

"She's alive and Omar Mateen is dead. So she's the only person they can charge," said Swift, describing Salman as a battered spouse who had learning disabilities in high school.

Salman's attorneys want her released to her family, saying she poses no threat to the public and requires mental health services not available in jail. They said she was asleep at home with the couple's 3-year-old son during the attack.

Widow of Pulse Nightclub Shooter Knew of Attack, FBI Says
by Megan Cerullo
Dec. 22, 2017

The widow of Pulse mass shooter Omar Mateen declined to testify in court Friday during an evidence suppression hearing.

Lawyers for Noor Salman, who is accused of aiding Mateen in planning and carrying out the June 12, 2016 attack that killed 49 people and injured at least 68 more, argued that statements she made to the FBI the day of the attack -- that indicate she was aware of her husband's plans -- should not be allowed into evidence during her trial.

FBI agents note that statements she made after the attack reveal she knew more than she initially let on.

Here are the key details revealed during this week's court proceedings:

Salman Told FBI her Husband was Visiting Extremist Sites

FBI Special Agent Ricardo Enriquez, who interviewed Salman the day of the attack, said she told him that Mateen had been exploring extremist websites for about two years before the attack.

But she claimed in their first interview not to know that he was planning an attack, Enriquez said in court, according to The Orlando Sentinel.

Salman Said She was "Sorry For What Happened", Wished She Had Warned Police

After his initial interview with her, Enriquez asked Salman to write a paragraph and say that nobody was forcing her to be there.

At the end of her statement she wrote, "I am sorry for what happened. I wish I could go back and tell his family and the police what he was going to do."

Enriquez said that's when he realized "that she knew."

Salman Later Told FBI that She and her Husband Drive Around Pulse Nightclub

In another statement, Salman told Enriquez that after she visited Disney Springs with her husband, they drove around the site of the attack for about 20 minutes, with the car's windows down.

Salman's lawyers suggested that the couple hadn't actually been in the area together. "It would shock you if it wasn't true," Salman's defense attorney, Swift asked Enriquez. "It would shock you if the GPS said they never went near the Pulse nightclub?"

Enqriquez said he had simply recorded Salman's statement to him.

Salman Said She Saw her Husband Researching the Club Online

Enriquez said Salman saw her husband looking at a photo of the club on June 10, 2016 - two days before the attack.

Mateen told her that Pulse was his target, Enriquez said. He said that's when Salman realized the attack was imminent.

Salman Knew her Husband was Dead, Even Though No One Told her That

Christopher Mayo, the first FBI agent to interview Salman after the attack, said that she indictated she knew her husband was dead, even though she hadn't yet been informed of his death, ABC-affiliate WFTV9 reported.

Salman Made Reference To her Husband's Attitude Towards Homosexuals

Salman claimed her husband would never hurt anyone because he liked everyone, including homosexuals, Mayo said. But Mayo notes that she shouldn't at that point have known that the attack had been made on a popular gay club in Orlando.

The Couple Spent More than $25,000 Leading Up to Attack

Thursday's motion said Salman knew Mateen was planning an attack based on his spending habits leading up to the massacre.

Financial records show the pair made more than $25,000 in credit card purchases and withdrew more than $5,500 in cash in the weeks leading up to the attack.

Tax filings show the couple only earned about $30,000 annually.
