CNN’s national security analyst Tom Fuentes said he wasn’t sure whether or not the Kuwaiti man who murdered four marines in Chattanooga, TN — Muhammad Youssuf Abdulazeez — had a “Muslim name” during the network’s live coverage of the incident.

“First of all,” Fuentes said to anchor John Berman. “I know what the name sounds like, but we don’t know that it’s a Muslim name. We know that it’s an Arabic name, but we don’t know what this individual was believing in, and that’s what they’ll be trying to determine.”

As it turns out, TheDC’s Chuck Ross revealed that Abdulazeez’s personal blog had recently published two posts about radical Islam. (RELATED: Muhammad Youssuf Abdulazeez Had An Islamic Blog. Here It Is)
