Vegas Massacre: FBI Sting Operation Gone Bad?

Elder Patriot – Recently unsealed affidavits to the U.S. District Court in Nevada seeking multiple search warrants has shed new light on the direction that the investigation into the Harvest 91 terror attack has taken.  They provide more evidence to support the fears we voiced at that time that a massive cover up was underway.

In the absence of any explanation, reasonable or otherwise, from the Las Vegas Sheriff’s department and the FBI we felt it was at least reasonable to ask whether both the Saudis and Soros funded ETS played a role in the massacre.

The unsealed documents prove that the FBI knew, or at least strongly suspected, that the plot was more extensive than we were told as this excerpt from one of the warrant requests that lists areas under investigation reveals.

  Paddock Affidavits by Las Vegas Review-Journal on Scribd

We were told Stephen Paddock was the lone shooter.  A homegrown radicalized Jihadist, if you will.  The mainstream media accepted this account hook, line, and sinker, and sold it back to us as fact. 

There’s only one problem with that, the charges listed in the affidavit would have been impossible for a single gunman to be guilty of.

In fact, anyone with knowledge of the weapons found alongside Paddock’s body would’ve immediately realized that even if they had been capable of fully automatic fire, it would’ve been impossible for one person to discharge that many rounds in such a condensed period of time because of the time required reloading each weapon.

As the highly credible Yoichi Shimatsu has written:

“The FBI photo taken in Paddock’s hotel room showed a stack of curved AK-47 magazines, each holding 30 bullets; there was no bandolier-type machine-gun belt in sight. Therefore, the lone gunman narrative is preposterous, and anyone who put this sort of nonsense forward, especially from law enforcement, is a knowing liar.” 

It appears that higher ups at the FBI knew of the wider conspiracy and decided to hide it because they were a part of it.

So how many others were involved on that fateful night and what role did Stephen Paddock play in the conspiracy?

An anonymous user, claiming to be an insider with the Las Vegas PD, posted this to 4chan in October almost immediately after the massacre took place:

“The LVMPD [Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department] knows the motive behind the attack, but the FBI will not allow us to release the motive because it implicates the FBI in illegal arms deals and supplying arms to ISIS terrorists within U.S. borders.

“Stephen Paddock was an undercover FBI agent who participated in multiple illegal arms deals in Las Vegas area in a gun running entrapment scheme similar to Fast and Furious. Paddock thought he was engaging in another routine arms transfer, but ISIS had learned about the entrapment scheme and Paddock’s true identity. They killed him and carried out the massacre, and then fled the scene. 

“Everything is being kept under extreme wraps because 1) armed ISIS terrorists are still at large and 2) this is very embarrassing to the FBI and they don’t want their scheme to become public knowledge.” 

This seems entirely plausible, and in the absence of any official accounting of the investigation, even more so.   

Shimatsu continued his analysis:

“The only remotely honest law-enforcement official with public presence, Sheriff Joseph Lombardo, stated that suspect Paddock intended to survive the massacre. His assessment was based on the presence of a precursor chemical for explosives and more guns inside his car, which was left in the parking level of the Metropolitan. In other words, Paddock did not commit suicide, and there was no reason for him to wait for SWAT to arrive.
“Since the firing had ceased by around 10:20 p.m., and the SWAT team did not storm his room until after 11:00, Paddock had 40 minutes to make his escape in the crowd of panicked guests down the elevators to the parking level. Why did he not exfiltrate?
“The only possible answer is: Because he was already dead, killed before the shooting spree started. Who would have murdered Paddock just prior to the gunfire on the crowd below? One of the gunmen, of course.
“Why? Because the would-be “buyers” of his stash of guns (none of them were legally purchased from registered firearms dealers, as implied by media fakery) had long suspected that his offer of weapons for sale was bait in an FBI-CIA trap. The ISIS knew very well that his disingenuous conversion to Islam was a ploy hatched by his bosses at the CIA and DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency).
“So the jihadists offered him one last test of faith before his “martyrdom”. At every terror site, at least one dead martyr must be left behind for the sake of the lone gunman myth, which benefits both the political class to appease public anger and also the terrorists trying to conserve manpower for their next strike. Paddock was more useful as a fall guy than as a fighter.
“To flush out informers, crime groups will often order a new member to murder an undercover police informant or a friend in a rival gang.

“During the meeting to transfer the traceable guns to the ISIS men in his 32nd floor room, his client(s) would order him to start shooting at the concert-goers below as a test of faith. Caught totally off-guard by this demand to kill fellow Americans, Paddock would have balked. Instead of giving a straight answer, he probably requested a moment of prayer in the bathroom to think it over, allowing him to message his FBI support team.
“His prayer was answered with a gunshot to the back of the head. That bloody head is edited out the FBI photo of his body, if indeed that was his actual corpse. (Since he was laid out with a Kevlar vest, why wouldn’t he also have worn a helmet to deflect bullets?) That’s when the ISIS team leader would text-message his gunman to commence the slaughter. They had no need for Paddock’s dodgy cache of weapons; they brought their own heavier machine-guns to the fatwa fiesta.”

According to Shimatsu there were multiple shooters firing from five or more sites.  This would explain the warrants to search Paddock’s email files for their identities:


“Aside from the Mandalay Bay, the police-radio intercept disclose two other nearby shooting scenes: the Tropicana and New York New York hotels. The Tropicana hotel-casino is located across Las Vegas Boulevard South (aka The Strip) about a half block from the Mandalay Bay (the southernmost on The Strip). It directly adjoins the site of the Route 91 Harvest Festival, opposite the Mandalay.
“The rapid-fire shooting from the Tropicana is, therefore, consistent with eyewitness reports of a “crossfire” by the second shooter, who was likely killed by the police, as reported at the first Metropolitan Police news conference.
“A third shooter, firing from New York New York hotel, is reportedly in detention, presumably captured while trying to flee in a car across the boulevard to the Excalibur. The NYNY is across the boulevard from the Tropicana, or the same side of the street as Mandalay Bay (and the Luxor). It is at a catty-corner across from the open-air concert venue.
“There were three firing points in a deadly triangle, just like the trio at the Paris Bataclan (only 2 gunmen were killed, and one escaped) and Orlando Pulse (1 killed, 2 escaped). Triangulation is intended to keep the crowd confined rather than making a quick escape. (In a shooting situation, every couple of seconds feels like minute, when perception time slows to a crawl, and therefore within 20 seconds targeted individuals should be able to dash to escape or find cover, that is, in the case of a single gunman.) Even with those three shooters, at least one of them must have used a belt-loading machine gun, probably similar to a 7.62mm NATO standard, to account for the intense firepower within three minutes, along with the basso boom from the muzzle blast.
“Guests and staff at another separate cluster of two or three hotels also heard nearby low-caliber small-arms fire, shootings which so far can be interpreted as diversionary actions intended to confuse the police. These secondary incidents were at the Bellagio and Caesar’s Palace, and probably the Aria, at the corner of Flamingo Avenue, two blocks north of the Harvest Festival. Later that night a local civilian resident with a rifle tried to enter Caesar’s after having heard about gunshots fired inside.
“Gunfire at the Ali Baba Lebanese restaurant was later denied, although it may have been a misfired weapon kept ready by a back-up team to assist the escape of the hotel gunmen.
“Therefore, the hit squad in Las Vegas included a minimum of 5 gunmen, although more likely 6-7 shooters, with a contingent of support personnel for communications, logistics and transport as well as to trip up hotel security. Hotel staff at the Mandalay saw an assailant in a hotel security uniform being chased down a hall by police officers.
“The attack on Las Vegas was a small-scale paramilitary operation, probably involving a squad of radical Muslim ISIS supporters to avenge Obama’s betrayal of the Caliphate. The  “one POC” code word heard on police radio scanner likely refers to a “person of color”, likely from Africa, perhaps Somalia or Sudan, implying the two other suspects were light-skinned, perhaps Arabs or even white American recruits.

“A most difficult problem in this incident is the code of silence among the hundreds of Muslim hotel workers and chauffeurs along The Strip, whose ultimate loyalties are with sharia law and not the U.S. Constitution. Vegas was a classic case study of the absolute failure and delusions about Muslim integration under the democratic traditions of American society. That is an undeniable fact that contributed enormously to the murder and mayhem, politically incorrect though it may sound.”

It’s now looking increasingly possible that Paddock was part of a covert program to transfer weapons from the vaults of the ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agency of Homeland Security), fitted with hidden RFID tracking chips, to ISIS militants inside the USA.

That would be consistent with the manner in which the FBI conducted another botched sting operation that also blew up in their faces, Fast and Furious.

Whether Stephen Paddock was involved in Fast and Furious is the subject of much conjecture on the Internet but has raised no interest in the mainstream media.

There are other facts that demand further investigation as well:

  • Two weeks before the terror attack MGM’s CEO, James Murren, divested himself of 80% of the shares he owned in his company. 
  • George Soros had shorted MGM to the tune of $42 million only two weeks before the Mandalay Bay terror attack. 
  • reported that, “SLS Las Vegas, the beleaguered and soon-to-be-sold north Las Vegas Strip property” garnered a surprising cash cow when the Royal Saudi Air Force booked the resort’s entire W hotel tower 
  • ETS Risk Management, a private military company (PMC), may have played a role in the carnage.  If they did…
  • Who better to extract them from their shooter perches than Saudi pilots who had just spent two weeks running drills over Las Vegas? 
  • “Flight records and information obtained by Intellihub show that at least one assailant may have been extracted via helicopter.

  • The authorities are sitting on reasonable video evidence of at least a three-man kill team that night.
  • By the middle of November the facts pointed to the larger conspiracy that included George Soros, the CEO of MGM, and elements of the Saudi government.
  • The more extreme elements of the Saudi government have been rounded up and detained in what most likely has been a response to the events in Las Vegas.

Where are all those great investigative reporters for the New York Times and the Washington Post?  Most likely they’re still in Alaska pouring through Sarah Palin’s garbage.
