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.

    Do you really think a politician of that rank would be that stupid?
    While I am sure that plenty of them harbor such thoughts, they leave the speaking of it outloud to guys like pat robertson and the falwells. [theguardian.com]
    The Lt Gov's office said that tweet was queued up days ago [pbs.org] which is way more plausible than a politician publicly gloating at a mass murder.
