Soofi’s mother also said her son acquired an AK-47 at the end of 2014, when he and Elton Simpson had allegedly planned an attack on the 2015 Super Bowl.
Earlier this year, Pamela Geller held a free speech contest in which contestants drew pictures of the non-prophet of Islam, Muhammad. At that event in Garland, Texas, two Islamic jihadis attempted mass murder, but the free speech event was stopped by men with guns, despite the fact that the federal government’s violation of the Fourth Amendment in their surveillance failed to apprehend them. Now we are learning that at least one of the Islamic jihadis was allowed to purchase his 9mm handgun that was tied to the Obama/Holder Operation Fast and Furious scandal.
The Chicago Tribune reports:
Five years before he was shot to death in the failed terrorist attack in Garland, Texas, Nadir Soofi walked into a suburban Phoenix gun shop to buy a 9-millimeter pistol.
At the time, Lone Wolf Trading Co. was known among gun smugglers for selling illegal firearms. And with Soofi’s history of misdemeanor drug and assault charges, there was a chance his purchase might raise red flags in the federal screening process.
Inside the store, he fudged some facts on the form required of would-be gun buyers.
What Soofi could not have known was that Lone Wolf was at the center of a federal sting operation known as Fast and Furious, targeting Mexican drug lords and traffickers. The idea of the secret program was to allow Lone Wolf to sell illegal weapons to criminals and straw purchasers, and track the guns back to large smuggling networks and drug cartels.
