The FBI has released the full unredacted transcript of Omar Mateen’s 911 call made during the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting in an effort to be more transparent following criticism of the decision to remove references to ISIS and the Islamic State’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, from the document.

In the 911 call, Mateen pledges allegiance to al-Baghdadi. There is no evidence that Mateen had any direct contact with ISIS and its leadership, but he is believed to have been radicalized domestically, the FBI says.

“The purpose of releasing the partial transcript of the shooter’s interaction with 911 operators was to provide transparency, while remaining sensitive to the interests of the surviving victims, their families, and the integrity of the ongoing investigation,” the FBI and Justice Department said in a joint statement. “We also did not want to provide the killer or terrorist organizations with a publicity platform for hateful propaganda. Unfortunately, the unreleased portions of the transcript that named the terrorist organizations and leaders have caused an unnecessary distraction from the hard work that the FBI and our law enforcement partners have been doing to investigate this heinous crime.

“As much of this information had been previously reported, we have re-issued the complete transcript to include these references in order to provide the highest level of transparency possible under the circumstances,” the statement said.

Transcripts of three additional calls made to police negotiators have also not been made public. Audio is also not being released at this time, the FBI says.

Mateen’s first call was made at 2:35 a.m. to a 911 operator while he was inside Pulse. The call lasted about 50 seconds, the FBI says.

The tag [said in Arabic] means the previous statement was said in Arabic, the FBI says.

You can read the uncensored transcript of Mateen’s first 911 call below:

Orlando Police Dispatcher: Emergency 911, this is being recorded.

Omar Mateen: In the name of God the Merciful, the beneficent [said in Arabic]

OD: What?

OM: Praise be to God, and prayers as well as peace be upon the prophet of God [said in Arabic]. I wanna let you know, I’m in Orlando and I did the shootings.

OD: What’s your name?

OM: My name is I pledge of allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi of the Islamic State.

OD: Ok, What’s your name?

OM: I pledge allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi may God protect him [said in Arabic], on behalf of the Islamic State.

OD: Alright, where are you at?

OM: In Orlando.

OD: Where in Orlando?

[End of call.]

Mateen later made three calls to police negotiators. The transcripts of those calls have not been released, but a summary was made public by the FBI:

2:48 a.m.: First crisis negotiation call occurred lasting approximately nine minutes.

3:03 a.m.: Second crisis negotiation call occurred lasting approximately 16 minutes.

3:24 a.m.: Third crisis negotiation call occurred lasting approximately three minutes.

In these calls, the shooter, who identified himself as an Islamic soldier, told the crisis negotiator that he was the person who pledged his allegiance to [omitted], and told the negotiator to tell America to stop bombing Syria and Iraq and that is why he was “out here right now.” When the crisis negotiator asked the shooter what he had done, the shooter stated, “No, you already know what I did.” The shooter continued, stating, “There is some vehicle outside that has some bombs, just to let you know. You people are gonna get it, and I’m gonna ignite it if they try to do anything stupid.” Later in the call with the crisis negotiator, the shooter stated that he had a vest, and further described it as the kind they “used in France.” The shooter later stated, “In the next few days, you’re going to see more of this type of action going on.” The shooter hung up and multiple attempts to get in touch with him were unsuccessful.

He also called a local news station and texted his wife, Noor Zahi Salman.

  1. WHY would 0bama remove all Islamic references in the phone calls? If 0bama is not muslim, he sure acts like one.

    • And I’m meeting my interner date..he’s a French model…bonjour!
      Don’t believe EVERYTHING you’re told, Anon

      • that comment was in reply to the above anon claiming that Obama is a Muslim. He’s professed his faith in Christianity so we must take him at his word lest we slip into “No True Scotsman” type arguments. I’m most closely in agreement with the atheists, yet I take those who profess faith at their word. Above anon is a retard

  2. Wow, what a crock. Anything this government tells you, and this goes back at least through Old George Bush and probably to Eisenhower, should be treated as a lie until otherwise proven. We know that crisis actors carried fake victims in the wrong direction(towards The Pulse) so that they could be filmed as part of the narrative of this staged event. It doesn’t mean no one was shot–though unlikely, but it does mean this was a staged false flag to grab guns and promote victimization. It’s been proven that Sandy Hook was a complete fake as no one died, and there’s strong evidence that the Aurora and San Bernadino were also gun confiscation tools. “We accept the reality with which we are presented. It’s as simple as that.” –A line from the Truman Show film that puts our world in perspective. That the FBI has been corrupted to this level is tragic and beyond disturbing.
    The pace of our electronic lives makes it easy to flash images and present fake stories with no basis in realty. Wake up. Find answers yourself and trust nothing the government and MSM tells you. Everything is a lie.

    • Could you provide some references that shiw absolute proof of your claim that Sandy Hook was staged and nobody died? I don’t doubt you, but I’m a bit skeptical of claims like this until the evidence is produced. Thanks.

      • There is zero proof that Sandy Hook was staged. I have looked into all the claims out there and none of them carry any weight whatsoever. These people repeat internet rumours they hear about Sandy Hook and they take them as fact, without doing a simple google search to verify. They say they are no birth and death records for the victims and this lie was even published in Fetzer’s bs book. No one bothered to google before writing, publishing, releasing and promoting a book?? If I can find those records on google, then Fetzer could have and I will assert has, but knows that these people take him at his word so his lies rarely get exposed within the group of idiots who believe Sandy Hook was a hoax. If you’re going to look into Sandy Hook, please look into the whole story and look into the debunkings as well as the myths. I know a lot about this subject and can provide you with a lot of answers if you have questions.

      • Please show absolute proof that Sandy Hook was not a drill gone live and anyone died. I am a bit sceptical of claims like this until evidence is produced (other than interviews of grieving parents).

    • You are disrespectful and ridiculous! I have friends who lost people at Pulse. Could you please go and talk to them about your bullshit conspiracy claims?

  3. Anyone can write a manuscript to further their lies. Also anyone can say that ” The president removes all Islamic references in the phone calls?” What a load of BS. It’s all a a big spin so the people of America let them carry on their wars and killing. Jeez people, wake up!

  4. I can’t believe american how brainwash they are. All government full of boloni they don want to realease the 9111 call come on be fair enough with a dum fake pic of bin laden and ya dont want to release the transcrip. Y because of the fam.. Wat about the soldiers doxens of them dying everyday . and because of the fam u dont want to realese the truth. Amrrican cover up for wat ….sometime I think the real bin laden is u president obama. Look at his right hands compare it and his famous eyebrow they did a good job. And last but not least his mouth features wat a coinciden 2 pres look a like. Humm..

  5. Obama.is obviously sympathetic to the Muslim and Islamic faith. The question is WHY!? I think his actions speak for itself. The media is so slanted and deceiving the American people. WHY!? WAKE UP AMERICANS OR IT MIGHT BE TOO LATE WHEN YOU DO LATER

  6. Any mention from the Shooter in the transcripts or from the surviving victims about homosexuality? Nothing about the victims, other than they are Americans?

  7. We all see that Obama keeps protecting, covering up for Muslims. He was more angry with Trumps comments after the shooting, than he was at the shooter. He has a Muslim name! What does this tell you?

  8. The govt can’t win with you people no matter what they do. They release the transcript, they get lynched by people claiming it’s a big false flag or some BS like that. If they don’t release it, they get called out for being “secretive” or something.

  9. I thought the original comments all referred to “allah” and not God. I guess when you are as clueless as this administration is about most things, substituting God, The Creator, of the Heavens and the Earth, for allah the satanic moon god is a natural consequence.

  10. This new, ‘unredacted’ transcript is a JOKE.

    America knows what the name Allah means. It’s the diety that Muslims worship. So, why would they translate “Allah” into “God (arabic)”?

    The American people deserve to have the 911 recording released IMMEDIATELY.

    We also deserve to have a public apology from the President for:

    Protecting, aiding, funding radical Islamists, deceiving us, throwing the FBI under the bus, giving CITIZEN-benefits to non-citizens from the Middle East, while our own veterans, needy, single mothers, and our promising youth are turned away from low income housing, welfare, and US universities.

    Then he needs to step down, submit himself to the law and serve his time in prison.

    • Allah literally means god in Arabic. Good grief. Christians and Jews in the middle east also say Allah Hu Akbar. It just means god is great in Arabic. Please people, make an allowance for the language, its not muslim, its just a language spoken in that region.
