Airport Shooter Addendum, with Caveat

Some of the less reputable news sources are reporting Esteban Santiago used the alias Aashik Hammad and posted Islamic stuff on social media. American Thinker has an example from Thomas Lifson, an unabashed right wing pundit. He quotes anti-Muslim activist Pamela Geller who writes:
Estaban Sanitago’s aka Aashiq Hammad's journey to Islam goes back at least 10 years. His MySpace page is eyeopening. More news the enemedia ignores, censors, scrubs – thanks to Charles Johnson over at Got News.
If true, Santiago is more than a recent nutcase looking to hook up with somebody evil. I am somewhat cautious about sources like these, which doesn't mean they're always wrong, just somewhat excitable and prone to conspiracy theories.
