WATCH: Multiple Eye Witnesses, Including Pilot, Refute Official Story of Florida Airport Shooting

Fort Lauderdale, FL — In the week following the January 6 shooting at Fort Lauderdale–Hollywood International Airport, the reports of two witnesses describing multiple shooters have been widely shared across the internet. Their first-person accounts conflict with the events reported by law enforcement officials, who say a single suspect opened fire in a terminal baggage claim area, killing 5 people and injuring 6.

The “lone” shooter has been identified as 26-year-old Esteban Santiago, an Army veteran who is reported to have mental issues. He was arrested without injury by police at the scene and is being held pending possible federal charges. It is claimed he flew from Anchorage to Fort Lauderdale on a one-way ticket, retrieved his handgun from baggage and began firing randomly at people after loading the gun in a bathroom.

Santiago had been recently sent to a hospital in November for a mental evaluation after he walked into an Alaska FBI field office and said the federal government was controlling his mind. He claimed C.I.A. agents were forcing him to watch Islamic State propaganda videos.

FBI officials confiscated a gun in his car and contacted local police, who sent him to get a mental health evaluation. Santiago was eventually released in December and the FBI and returned his handgun.

His family reported he had been having trouble, however, another report said he was having “wild” parties. Anchorage Police told reporters Santiago was investigated multiple times for various crimes including repeated domestic violence calls. According to USA Today, police received another domestic violence call on Oct. 15, but officers were told by a municipal prosecutor not to arrest him.

Santiago had recently been discharged from the Alaska National Guard in August 2016 for unsatisfactory performance, he had served since November 2014. Prior to that, Santiago was in the Army reserves following his active duty deployment in Iraq from April 2010 to February 2011. Santiago initially began his service in the Puerto Rico National Guard in December 2007.

The shooting was reported to be in Terminal 2. However, a pilot claimed to hear shooting in Terminal 1 during an interview with the Miami ABC affiliate WPLG.

“We definitely heard percussions and banging and you know I’m a shooter myself, so I would tend to think those were shootings,” the pilot said, before being briefly interrupted by a passing police car. The reporter then asked him to describe exactly what he saw.

“Well I was standing right inside the door in Terminal 1, on what would be the departures level, and I was looking down, I could see the escalators and the stairs, and I heard loud percussions, and people started running away, I could hear females screaming, and at the same time, stuff started happening behind me, some percussions, people falling down, running,” he said.

The pilot then stated he saw a man with his hands up and running from police during the incident, and then he described a conversation with another witness after the incident, saying that the other witness may have seen a different person running from police.

Another eyewitness, a construction worker at the airport, reported that after “they caught the first guy,” assumed to be Santiago, “there had to be three sleepers [three other shooters].”

He went on to describe what he saw, saying “we could see inside literally where the windows — you could see the fire coming from the barrels. There was like at least three people in there still shooting. Like it was like a high-powered rifle, like an AR or something […]. They was non-stop shooting. Like they just started hitting different people inside the crowd. We had to leave. We had to get on the roof.”

Reports of multiple shooters have been common at high profile shooting events and law enforcement authorities report only a single shooter. The June 2016 shooting at a nearby Orlando nightclub was reported as a shooting by a lone gunman who killed 50 people and wounded 50 others. Witnesses gave reasonable accounts of more than one shooter, citing gunfire coming from different directions and people holding exit doors shut from the outside. Many tactical experts have questioned whether one person could hit that many people in the conditions described, including a former NYPD officer who trained with both the handgun and rifle said to be used in the shooting.

The December 2015 shooting in San Bernardino, California was also reported as a lone shooter event. However, multiple witnesses reported seeing more than one shooter. The more specific reports described the shooters as three tall athletic white men. In both the cases of Orlando and San Bernardino, the reports of witnesses also corroborated the details given by other witnesses.

Last week’s Fort Lauderdale shooting comes amid discussion in Florida about individual gun rights which has been intensified since the Orlando nightclub shooting in June 2016. State Senator Greg Steube recently proposed a bill that would amend Florida’s current concealed carry law by “allowing open carry where all concealed weapons are allowed,” as reported by WSVN Miami. The bill was introduced in December 2016 and set for committee hearings in the early weeks of January. Yesterday’s Judiciary Committee meeting was cancelled, the bill was expected to be the major topic of discussion.

    Help me out here and forgive my naivete (ignorance?), but what might be a motive behind reporting fewer than the actual number of shooters?

      Sympathy for the Devil methinks, and you are not ignorant as that crossed my mind too. 🙂

        Yes, actually.

        • kirkland sewell

          …To deflect the possibility that it was a terrorist attack?? Oklahoma’s bombing was first ‘touted’ as a Muslim terrorist attack!…it wasn’t!! This one they say it’s not!! although you have the Shooter MENTIONING ISIS !…The people above are saying there were more than one shooter!…It’s a possibility …who knows. YOU HAVE A PRESIDENCY THAT WOULDN’T WANT IT’S LEGACY TARNISHED ABOUT AN ISIS ATTACK ON U.S. SOIL!!!

          • Andropov

            Eye witnesses are notoriously unreliable. If that is the only evidence available, it seems pretty unreasonable to assume any kind of “false flag” attack. And I don’t really know what we’re supposed to believe the Kennedy assassination has to do with this at all.

          • anseio

            Law Enforcement is also comprise of “eye witnesses”, provided any of them are on the scene at the time. The only way we can possibly know if it was lone shooter vs. multiple shooters is to have been there ourselves. In cases like these, no narrative should go unscrutinized; especially, the “official” ones.

          • A Voice in the Wilderness

            I saw live reports from the Colorado Batman shooting. Same thing. Eye witnesses described smoke cannisters being thrown in the theatre from a different direction than the exit door.

          • Oingo Boingo

            When multiple eyewitnesses are saying substantially the same thing…
            you figure it out.
            The JFK hit, being also political and on full display in broad daylight, has more to do with the instant case than you are willing to see or consider.

          • kirkland sewell

            …I only mentioned JFK’s assassination as an example that MISINFORMATION abounds…more so today with the easier access because of technology!!…Do you see the “INFORMATION ABOUT TRUMP’s RUSSIAN ties now’…LOL!!…

    False Flag orchestrations and manipulations are a time proven tool used to sway public opinion; now minimized by Off The Chain alternative media…which drives (((The Swine))) to distraction because they can’t completely control it., although they unrelentingly try to do just that.
    It’s a Talmudic thing; World Conquest, enslavement, mass murder…the usual.

            You forgot to admit that afterwards you then went back to compulsive masturbation.

    • billdeserthills

      I was with you on your first comment, but you aren’t gonna convince me that the Talmud is about world conquest, enslavement or mass murder, certainly not to any degree greater than that of the old, or new testament

      • Oingo Boingo

        Take the time to actually read The Talmud, early translations of The Torah and The Protocols of The Learned Elders of Zion.
        Dovetail those with The Koran, which sprang from the early jew writings.
        Then, come to know the puppets and the puppetmasters.
        The original, often deleted, sections of The Magna Carta dealing with jew predation, misbehavior and banning also contribute to knowing Who’s Who and What’s What.

        • billdeserthills

          Are you quite sure you aren’t just another fake nazi?

          • Oingo Boingo

            That’s a stupid question and you’re a dumbass.
            I’m done with you, GIT !

          • billdeserthills

            Right cause you are obviously a piece of fake nazi garbage–
            You just made my ban list, fuckface

          • Oingo Boingo

            That’s too bad because I was going to use you as over-wintering manure fertilizer.
            Oh well, you’re just going to have to remain useless, as usual.

        • Neo2

          >>The Protocols of The Learned Elders of Zion.<<

          Seriously?

          They were written by the Russians as propaganda.

          • Oingo Boingo

            I doubt that a Christian Russian could conceive of the evil incarnate in that Satanic Khazar document.
            Hasbara much ?

          • Mike Surack

            By the Russians, or by the Bolsheviks? I am asking, not being sarcastic or being insincere. Hard to tell sometimes in text.

      • nsolcis

        followers of the talmud are the jews who claim to be of God, but are really the synagogue of satan who Christ spoke about..

        • billdeserthills

          Really, that’s what we call muslims.

          • nsolcis

            just look at how far the talmud departs from the teachings of the torah

          • billdeserthills

            Honestly, last time I read or discussed the Talmud, it was as an interesting historical way of looking at things. I never met anyone who actually applied any amount of it to our modern day activities.

          • nsolcis

            you’ve obviously never met an orthodox or hasidic jew, I burn trees and advance knowledge, chilling is for the dead.

          • billdeserthills

            I guess the sidecurls were just camoflauge then, I’m pretty sure all the rabbis at the shul thought they were
            orthodox. Of course I cannot compete with a genuine real-life genius such as yourself

          • nsolcis

            so they don’t take their religion seriously, yet they wear the hairstyle they are commanded to by their religion, eat only kosher, marry only Jewish women, won’t even ride a bike on saturday etc.. do you even think before you type?

          • billdeserthills

            I can assure you that we all took Our religion very seriously, you are the only one who has ever suggested
            otherwise

    …For every incident that happens in the U.S. there is always a “million” different stories…i.e CONSPIRACY THEORIES that abounds!!!…Nowhere else in the World this happens!!…Look at the CONSPIRACIES involving Russia/Trump now!!!…”GOLDEN SHOWERS”, DAMN!! that’s sick!!!…

    • Domina Elle

      Don’t knock it till you try it LOL. Urine is actually medicinal. It kills athletes foot, is also used in medications by pharmaceutical companies (blood thinning meds). It’s found in skin care products. LOL.

      • Flying Gabriel

        Cool … I’ll order some Russian prostitutes for my fungus infection.

        • Amor Terra

          There’s actually a “school of thought” that recommends peeing on your own feet in the shower as a remedy for athlete’s foot. It’s bunk, since the fungal infection that causes it is systemic (that’s why it keeps coming back however often you use the cremes and stuff), but that doesn’t stop people from saying it. And then of course, there are millions of middle aged women taking pregnant mare urine “isolates” for their hormonal difficulties-courtesy of Pharma.

  • Domina Elle

    Don’t forget the Colorado theater shooting there were multiple witnesses who claimed they saw at least one other person and one witness said Holmes got up and let someone else into the theater by an exit near the movie screen.

    Oh well.

  • donnafritz

    Pfft. It’s common for eyewitnesses to have conflicting accounts.

    “He went on to describe what he saw, saying “we could see inside literally where the windows — you could see the fire coming from the barrels. There was like at least three people in there still shooting. Like it was like a high-powered rifle, like an AR or something […]. They was non-stop shooting. Like they just started hitting different people inside the crowd. We had to leave. We had to get on the roof.”

    So if there was a total of four shooters, and three of those allegedly used high-powered rifles, allegedly non-stop shooting in crowd of people after the first shooter had already been caught, wouldn’t there have been way more people injured/killed?

    And if that really happened, wouldn’t there be a whole bunch of witnesses that could corroborate this?

  • You have to admit that THEY are really good at mind control. A couple of people saw active shooters after the primary confessed shooter was captured. But only a couple out of hundreds of people. Think of the mind control exercised on these hundreds of people. Or maybe like in sandy hook, all those other people were really actors.

    Do you really think that you have a chance against such people??

    And we know that eye witnesses NEVER EVER make errors. Cause all those people convicted of crimes and sent to prison and later cleared. Well that is not witness error. NO That is just more false flag stuff. Cause “THEY” benefit from adding a few dozens of people to the millions already in jail. But they are so clever that I can not figure out how they benefit, but they must benefit, because why else would they send all these innocent people to prison. And we know that they were sent to prison deliberately because eyewitnesses NEVER EVER make errors. Just read the posts here.

    The other possibility is that the people posting here who assume that eyewitness error on the order of less than 1% is less likely than some vast conspiracy, are really idiots with the IQ of a potted plant.
