Who is responsible for the Orlando attack on American soil?


When will America wake up to the threat of ISIS and the attack on our homeland? Over 50 people have been killed. Will the White House finally recognize the real threat? And call it by its name? Extreme Islamic terrorist. Will the LGBT community stand up and condemn the radical Islamic groups that are targeting them because of their sexual orientation? What should the US government respond to this declaration of war?

    No one is claiming the whole of Islam is at fault. However, if we don't identify the problem by name, how are we to defeat it? Calling it an "act of terror" says nothing about who is behind this. I hope you see the distinction.

    Ten Muslim nations have a death penalty for homosexuality. Dozens more outlaw it. Yes, it IS the ideology that they follow that drives these atrocities.

    You are making excuses for this administration. When the IRA was bombing civilians, we called them the Irish Republican Army. When the SLA was doing its terrorist bombs, we called it by name. Why the reluctance by Obama to call this the Islamic..?

    I've been at several vigils with Muslim people attending, and Muslim communities across the globe have condemned it. Where is your source? And how can you say no other religion attacks LGBT people when hundreds have been hurt by Christians this year

    Not the whole government. Just the ones (mostly Republicans) who opposed a bill that would have denied weapons to suspected terrorists because that's what the NRA wanted?

    We know their background checks don't work - see the San Bernadino shooters.

    This man was a security officer. Of course it was easy for him to get weapons. He'd already been vetted.

    Former co-workers had complained about him, including about his views on gays. They weren't addressed because he was Muslim.

    Yes, I agree but I am baffled by our FBI and NSA who has all these surveillances placed on the American public and yet, they were not able to prevent this attack and 13 other terrorist attacks on the homeland post 9/11. Why is that? What is wrong?

    There are macheted Muslim mobs killing atheists in Pakistan, Christians in Egypt, beheading police in the EU. Banning guns doesn't stop those whose ideology says to kill you from doing so.

    I disagree with your assessment of ISIS. You seem to think all adminstrations are equal in dealing with external threats. That is simply not true. Why have elections? The fact is ISIS could have been stopped 2 years ago and Obama choose to contain..

    Murder rates and armed robbery rates didn't go down after those laws were passed.

    Wow, and I thought radical Islamists were off their rocker but I think your answer makes them look almost sane.

    No amount of gun control laws will stop terrorist or criminals from these shootings.
