When I learned that Omar Mateen, the Islamic terrorist who killed 49 Americans at a gay bar in Orlando, Florida and wounded 53 others was a security officer working for a company called G4S I decided to do some research on this company. What I have found is not only disturbing but downright terrifying. Now understand that I am not someone who readily subscribes to conspiracy theories, but I am a trained military intelligence officer so I know how to analyze information and draw conclusions based on that information.
In the case of G4S I have found that it is a British security firm that operates in over 100 countries with over 600,000 employees. It has a checkered past to say the least. It had to pay millions of dollars to the British Government for its failure to provide security to the 2012 Olympics in England. This failure caused the British government to have to deploy thousands of troops to provide adequate security. There have also been other scandals involving the company.
G4S acquired a U.S. Security firm named Wackenhut Corp. that also has a questionable history and made it a subsidiary company named G4S Security Solutions USA Inc. This is the company that actually employed Mateen who became an employee in 2007. The U.S. affiliate initially claimed to know nothing about any FBI questioning of Mateen however finally admitted that it was aware of the first FBI investigation of Mateen, but not the second. The company also claims to know nothing about the terroristic threat Mateen made that were reported by one of his fellow employees. FOX News interviewed this former employee, Daniel Gilroy, who confirmed his allegations, and G4S refused Fox News requests for a response. However, the firm relieved him of duties as a security guard at a Florida courthouse because people complained about his negative comments about women and his Jews and his expressions of admiration for the radical Muslim that killed 13 American soldiers and wounded 32 others at Fort Hood, Texas.
So this where it gets scary; G4S has contracts with numerous federal agencies including the State Department, Departments of Interior, Labor, Justice, Energy as well as the IRS, DEA, Homeland Security. It has also been hired by the U.S. Army, Air Force, and NASA. As a result, G4S has worked on projects at Guantanamo Bay, and provides security services for over 50 American embassies around the world, 90 percent of the nuclear facilities in the United States, as well as numerous prisons and juvenile detention facilities around the country.
