ISIS issues official communique on Las Vegas attack, identifying Paddock as “Abu Abd Abdulbar al-Ameriki” (SITE)
The Islamic State (IS) issued a formal communique claiming credit for the Las Vegas shooting, identifying the perpetrator as “Abu Abdul Barr al-Amriki” and declaring that he heeded the response of IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi to attack coalition countries.
Text in the communique similar to others by ISIS, tho first to frame attack as “response”specifically to”Baghdadi”
ISIS gives unverifiable (as of yet) narrative: Paddock, responding to Baghdadi’s incitements, did “precise” surveillance of venue prior
Important to note between Amaq statements vs official communiques: Amaq more open-ended, latter imply degree of knowledge or connection

Please take a moment to consider this. Now, more than ever, people are reading Geller Report for news they won't get anywhere else. But advertising revenues have all but disappeared.
