A suspected Islamic terrorist opened fire at a gay nightclub in Florida, killing 50 people and wounding another 53 before he was killed by police. While authorities continue to investigate to determine whether this man had ties to ISIS, the terror organization has not been quiet in praising the attack. This comes three days after ISIS announced they would attack somewhere in Florida. Today's attack marks the largest act of terrorism on US soil since 9/11.

takyon: The gunman reportedly called 911 emergency services to pledge allegiance to ISIS. The President will hold a briefing momentarily. Compare this article to the original submission.

    We need to practice the rule of law here, at home, as well. Clapper, Hillary, heads of banks who lied under oath etc. - they must be held to account.

    By not holding these accountable we have an immense amount of egg on our faces and are shown to be hypocrites on the international stage. We're straight-up giving extremists examples to point at and cry "look how corrupt and degenerate they are!"
