SOFREP is not afraid to call the attack on the Florida night club for what it is, an attack on the U.S. and the gay community by an Islamic extremist.

As of right now there are 50 dead and 53 injured being reported from the mass shooting at a Florida nightclub early this morning. The numbers will likely go up as the story continues to develop. This is the largest attack of this kind since 9/11 attacks. The FBI have already stated that this is being investigated as an act of terrorism. The shooter has been identified as Omar Mateen of Fort Pierce, Florida but has been linked to Afghanistan. This lone wolf attack is consistent with the call for attacks by ISIS during the month of Ramadan.

A pro-Isis group has released a hit list with the names of more than 8,000 people mostly Americans.

More than 600-people live in Florida, and one security expert believes that many of those targeted live in Palm Beach County and on the Treasure Coast.

The “United Cyber Caliphate” that hacked U.S. Central Command, 54,000 Twitter accounts and threatened President Barack Obama is the same pro-Isis group that’s reportedly created a “kill list” with the names, addresses and emails of thousands of civilian Americans.

Reports of the list came to light online when Vocativ reported the list was shared via the encrypted app, Telegram, and called on supporters to kill.

Former FBI agent-turned lawyer Stuart Kaplan says the threat is especially alarming, because the people on this list are civilians who don’t have the security necessary to protect themselves.
