(NEW YORK POST) Orlando nightclub gunman Omar Mateen’s father is an Afghan immigrant who hosted an anti-American TV show and once called the Taliban “our warrior brothers.”
Seddique Mateen appears in scores of online videos, including one he posted to Facebook right around the time of his son’s rampage. In it, he wears combat fatigues and salutes the camera.
The elder Mateen speaks the Dari language in his often-rambling videos, and it wasn’t immediately clear what he says in that clip, posted on Facebook around 2 a.m. Sunday, just when Omar was opening fire on innocent victims at the Pulse nightclub.
