MSNBC Guest: Orlando Attack May Not Be Connected to Terror

903 views

<p>During a discussion on Friday about the recent terrorist attack in Nice, France a guest on MSNBC claimed something absolutely ridiculous. Former United States Intelligence Officer Malcom Nance claimed that both the attack in Orlando, Florida and the attack in San Bernardino, California were not necessarily acts of ISIS terror. He pointed to instances of personal turmoil in the attackers&rsquo; lives as evidence that they were driven by other motives.</p>

<blockquote>
<p><strong>San Bernardino may in fact have been a hybrid act of terrorism/workplace violence. This Orlando attacker, there are indicators he has psycho sexual problem going on in his mind and acted out and then claimed it was ISIS.</strong></p>
</blockquote>

<p>Those comments came in response to speculation from MSNBC&rsquo;s Steve Kornacki about the motives of the truck driver in France. &ldquo;<strong>Is there any room here for the possibility that, as we say, the guy was having problems in his personal life,</strong>&rdquo; Kornacki asked, pointing to reports that the man was facing a possible jail term. He concluded his question by if the driver could be, &ldquo;<strong>just somebody whose life was out of control and took it out on everybody?</strong>&rdquo;</p>

<p>Nance seems to have forgotten that the Orlando terrorist had a history of declaring allegiance to different radical organizations. There are also stories from former classmates of him praising the 9/11 attacks as they were happening.&nbsp;</p>
