2:00 am
forever. >> we begin with leland vittert who is live for us in orlando. good morning. >> good morning. the investigation continues all night behind me. they are trying to sift through mountains of evidence. all of the victims have been identified. their next of kin notified. there are various reports that omar mateen had been at the club before. one report from the la times is the patriots recognized him from a gay dating app. make of whthat what you will, b this is an area he knew well. another area he knew well is disney world on his computer and cell phone. they found indications he had scouted disney world as a possible scene for the attack. why he choose the pulse nightclub is still unknown. very career from the of course bi's research that he was
2:01 am
radicalized on-line. >> so far we see no indication it was a plot directed from outside of the united states. we see no indication he was part of any kind of network. it is also not entirely clear at this point just what terrorist group he aspired to support. >> to that end when he was inside club pulse when he pledged allegiance to isis, he also talked about another competing terrorist group actionss iss -- group, something the police are looking at. there is a star wars themed bathrooms. a calendar with june #th on it. the june 6th is d-day. unclear if he was planning something for june 7th or
2:02 am
whether it had some kind of meaning. the calendar had something sishlged. a former colleague said this is a young man who was clearly disturbed. >> he was clearly disturbed and he had anger issues. the basis of the anger issues is he had rage towards groups and classes of people. he was a racist, he was sexist. >> police are facing a lot of criticism over their response and played defense moch of yesterday. the first officers arrived at club pulse at 2:00 a.m. it wasn't until 5:00 a.m. the swat team went in. there were serious questions about how many lives he could have been saved the victims who died on the floor inside the club had the swat team gone in earlier and also sadly it was acknowledged yesterday that there is a distinct possibility some of those shot were shot by
2:03 am
police officers during this gun battle. one local source considered it ammunition the police extended. you wondered if he was wearing body armor himself as he went on this violent terrorist rampage. back to you. leland vittert live for us. millions around the world showing their support for the 49 lives lost. emerging details about the witnesses sharing their horror stories from inside pulse nightclub. >> bam, bam, bam, bam, bam. >> i started hearing glass breaking. >> trying to be quiet so he wouldn't find us. >> kelly wright is live for us in washington, d.c. with the breaking details on what we now know, the suspect, the terror suspect did during the massacre. good morning, kelly. >> good morning to you as well. in the aftermath people are dealing with emotions ranging
2:04 am
from anger and sadness. >> around the world and here in the u.s. throngs of people are gathering for candlelight vigils in orlando. thousands gather to remember the 49 people gunned down and pray for the 53 wounded victims to heal. this snap chat video from a victim inside the club as gun shots range out. (gun shots) >> sadly she did not make it. many relived the horror during the nightclub. >> people's faces blown off, i peaked under the stall and
2:05 am
looked at me under the stall. something about him having enough bombs to take out a city block. >> he was shooting while we were in the stall. he laughed like a laugh of satisfaction like i am getting done what i came here to do. it is imprinted in my head forever. >> no doubt it will stay there for ever. the heartbreak and pain from this tragedy all too real for those survivors from this tragedy. it will remain in their minds. but people in orlando are doing all they can to heal as they come together for the community. one said it shows the resolve of people in orlando love conquers hate. >> thank you, kelly. so sad. >> makes it real, doesn't it oo he had connections to
2:06 am
former u.s. marine and under cover fbi agent turned radical muslim. i was linked to a suicide bomber we told you that who blew himself up from the front in syria. >> despite the ties the head of the fbi now saying there was nothing they could have done differently to stop him. >> we first became aware of him in may of 2013. over the next 10 months we attempted to determine whether he was a possible terrorist. after 10 months of investigation we closed the preliminary investigation. we are also going to look hard at oun other work to see if there was something we could have done differently. >> here to weigh in on the secret service agent who is on the scene for us in orlando, florida. thank you for joining us. >> you heard the director speaking there and he said there was nothing else they could have done.
2:07 am
do you agree? >> i completely disagree. having worked on the fbi on a number of joint terrorist task force cases. they are con stained by their ability to surveil potential terrorism suspects. you have to understand there are surveillance capabilities in the fbi their stur valence unionity is a small portion of what the fbi can do. we have to potentially prevent attacks like this in the future. catching someone like mateen is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
2:08 am
>> these lone wolfs isis inspired or isis directed there is no difference with the results. where someone is radicalized at home for the isis propaganda videos. they are using money transactions engaging in flight training they were talking to a number of people using electronic notification. they were trying to be interc t intercepted by investigators. when you are in the house watch ago video on twitter by isis sending a message to your head to commit this deranged act. it is very difficult to stop these kinds of things. as i mentioned before, surveillance. it is absolutely critical. we are really constrained in our ability as federal law
2:09 am
enforcement to do that. >> they watch and learn from the tactics they use and they go silent in different areas in order to avoid being caught. 50 investigations. there's investigations in at least all 50 states right now going on so the numbers are overwhelming when you think of it that way. you think perhaps political correctness has anything to do with it? >>ou brought up that point. there is no question. i mean, the evidence is real. they offend sensibilities within the muslim community. everybody understands obviously that not all muslims are involved in terrorism. it is a small number. but that number is very dangerous. if we are not going to train our fbi agents that there is a strain, albeit small, of islamic radicals out there intending to
2:10 am
do bad things we are not even going to train them that's the problem how do we expect them to find a solution. it's absurd. political correctness has run am amok. >> thank you for waking up early with us. >> thank you, dna. >> my pleasure. >> well, the tragedy in orlando leading to a war of words on the campaign trail. donald trump and hillary clinton outlining very different plans for preventing terror attacks in the future. we have the latest. the terror attack in the white house reminding voters how different the two presumptive nominees really are. on the one hand hillary clinton is putting her face into federal government by calling on a federal search to root out terrorists. on the other hand donald trump blasting the u.s. government as incompetent and over run with
2:11 am
deadly ignorance. yesterday in a blistering speech in new hampshire trump doubled down on his proposal to ban muslims from entering in the u.s. >> when i am elected i will suspend immigration from areas of the world where there is a proven history of terrorism against the united states europe or our allies. >> they use assault weapons ar 15's and use this to kill americans. >> clinton appeared to make one concession in the wake of orlando. she would be open to using the phrase radical islam unlike the current occupant of the oval office. yesterday he said he was self rale cadized and so far there
2:12 am
was no evidence his actions were internal. >> as far as we can tell this is an example of the kind of home grown extremism that all of us have been so concerned about for a very long time. it appears he was able to obtain these weapons legally. >> politically the battle lines have been drawn, but at the same time tomorrow president observe is planning to go to florida to visit the victim's families. >> the time 12 minutes after the top of the hour. who exactly is omar mateen? brand new information emerging. >> on the day of the 9-11 attacks when he got on my school bus and started laughing about it and acting like it was a big joke. >> why our next guest says it is time to take a closer look at his father.
2:13 am
2:14 am
2:15 am
2:16 am
new information about the ties to terror. he traveled and had been investigated the fbi twice after that in 2013 and 2014. something we didn't learn until yesterday. also a former classmate describing his disturbing reaction to the terrorist attacks on 9-11, listen. >> i rode the bus with him. on the day of the 9-11 attacks when he got on my school bus he acted like he was aplane he would hold his arms out by his side and make plane noises. he would make an explosion type of sound and fall into his seat. on that day he fell into his
2:17 am
seat and started making screaming type noises. >> his father a taliban supporter is originally from afghanistan, so is his mother. >> what did we understand about his father specifically? >> he referred as the taliban and his warrior brothers. i don't believe his father or imam that says there is no signs of extremism. you hear about how he allegedly celebrated 9-11. when the father says he had a typical american life i don't find that to be very credible. those are the type of things we
2:18 am
expect those around him to say, because if they admit they saw it what did they do if anything? >> what now can they do in terms of looking a little deeper into his family into his dad and into their background. >> they have probable cause of evidence of illegal activity going on there. i am askinterested in hearing w type of money he had going into the nonprofit. he had a tv show he would say things like supporting the taliban. he was connected to the 93 world trade center bombing and had an on-line radical school. he was not really a loan roll of
2:19 am
or self radicalized. he was part of a pack. >> it makes no sense having traveled to saudi arabia in 2010 prior to the time when the fbi investigated him. when they did he was linked to the first american who blew himself up in syria. going back to the father and what they potentially may find there they were told they did search their home and they had electronic evidence as well. they ran like four different businesses in the home is that correct? >> you can get the authorities are looking into it. >> he used that television show to speak out against homosexuals and gays, right, the father? >> when the father says he
2:20 am
doesn't know where this came from. he knows where it came from. it came from him. >> thank you for being with us this morning. we appreciate it. >> the time now is about 19 minutes after the top of the hour. danger at disney world. new evidence that omar mateen wanted to target the theme park. we are there with increased security. >> the deadline today. could it be bernie's last dance? i'm betty white and i'm known for

here to do. this is imprintd in my head forever. >> horrible. we have fox news team coverage for you. >> ghood morning. behind me the investigation at the pulse nate club continues with the fbi sifting through evidence. there are some reports it could take at least a week to process this crime scene. there were so many rounds of ammunition fired. also a new picture of how he may have cased this place. he was a known regular at club pulse. some people recognized him from a gay dating hap called jack. it is painting more of a picture of who this man was. this as the fbi continues to go through his cell phone his computer records social media records and trying to see if
2:32 am
there's a possible connection to disney world. he may have plotted against disney before he carried out this terrorist rampage. the other thing he is looking into is how he was radicalized. >> we are working hard to understand the killer and his motives and sources of inspiration but we are confident this killer was radicalized at least in some part through the internet. >> this 29-year-old terrorist made a number of 911 calls from inside the pulse nightclub. in them he talked about two different terrorist groups, theal news raw front and isis. unclear why both of those groups when daily obtained exclusive pictures in his apartment. otherwise it looked like a normal apart. inside.
2:33 am
some say he was anything but a normal person. >> he was a racist, a text sexist. he didn't like a particular religion or lifestyle. it was across the board, white, muslim males were the only class of person. everybody else was sub human. >> police are facing a lot of criticism and questions about their response to this shooting. it was 2:00 a.m. the first shots were fired. there was a lot of questions if lives could have been saved especially those wounded inside the club. when the police gone in there sooner rather than getting the entire swat team together. also keep in mind 11 different officers fired rountsdz at mateen both the one that started at 2:00 a.m. and the final at 5:00 a.m. this is a fear among the police that some of the rounds as well intended as they

the bottom line is that the only reason that the killer was in america in the first place was because we allowed his family to come here. that is a fact and it's a fact we need to talk about. we have a dysfunctional immigration system, but if i get in there, it's going to change and it's going to change quickly. >> donald trump doubling down on his proposed temporary muslim ban in the last two days, while president barack obama still refuses to call the situation what it is. >> this is being treated as a terrorist investigation. it appears that the shooter was inspired by various extremist information that was disseminated over the internet. >> president obama saying the killer was influenced by extremist information but carefully not to use the word
2:52 am
islamic. >> joining us now is congressman alan west. thank you for joining us once again this morning. what would donald trump do differently than president obama looking to him speak yesterday? >> well, i would hope that one of the first things that donald trump would do differently is not allow the council for arab relations not have influence. that he would not restrict the ability of tower law enforcement agencies to look at the trend analysis a lot of these islamic jihadist groups that are operating in our country. we need to look at our visa programs, especially those for young, single, military-age muslim males coming from countries that have known terrorist activities. i think that's a great start.
2:53 am
we don't want to see a repeat what's happening in europe with the infiltration of islamic jihadists. you need to be very specific. just the same as at that -- malik was able to get here on a marriage visa. donald trump says it like it is. he's not so p.c. that's one of the biggest challenges that we face today. you compare that to listening to president obama after, you know, the attack we saw yesterday and being so hesitant to call it for what it is. we now know what happened. why do you think president obama continues to be so hesitant to call it islamic extremism, for example? >> the only person that can answer that is president obama himself, but when you look at his speech that he gave in egypt
2:54 am
in 2009, his lack of action against isis, the destabilizing of libya, and that's a shear -- sanctuary for isis as well, they profess who her and it leaves you in your mind why. the president has to answer that question first and foremost. this is islamic jihadism. the president continues to say it's a matter of gun control. he uses rahm emanuel's mantra, never let a good crisis go to waste. >> would gun control avoid this situation? >> no. what would have avoided this situation is you had a young man who had been investigated by the fbi three times. he also was meeting with a cleric that had ties back to the first syrian -- not the first
2:55 am
syrian -- the american suicide bomber. we should have been looking into that islamic center, that mosque. i think that's what we need to be doing, instead of disarming the american people. >>ed suicide bomber and mateen both attending that same mosque in orlando. >> thank you for joining us today, happy army birthday. >> and flag day as well. the time now is 5 minutes until the top of the hour. on the loose, the urgent hunt for an escaped killer. >> where he got out and where police are looking right now. ♪ experience the thrill of the lexus is f sport. because the ultimate expression of power, is control. this is the pursuit of perfection.
