FILE - In this May 19, 2016 file photo, FBI Director James Comey, calls on a reporter during a news conference in Chicago. The Orlando gunman professed allegiance during the attack to the leader of the Islamic State even as he called the Boston Marathon bombers, who had nothing to do with the extremist group, his “homeboys.” Before that, the FBI said, he claimed family connections to al-Qaida and boasted of ties to Hezbollah, organizations deeply at odds with the Islamic State. Comey says those statements add to the confusion about why Omar Mateen gunned down people inside a gay nightclub. But such conflicting, jumbled loyalties aren’t uncommon among terror suspects in the United States. (AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast, File) Charles Rex Arbogast/AP
