This guy is a regular, run-of-the-mill nutjob conspiracy freak. I’m willing to bet he didn’t identify with any political ideology. Maybe libertarian. But these types rarely hold any affiliation.

I am finding a treasure trove of stuff on this Bedell, out of Irvine California (arrests, etc), and accordingly copying, archiving pretty fastidiously.

Come Friday a.m., the MSM Libs Spinnning Talking Heads and Empty Suits/Skirts/Pantsuits are NOT going to like this one bit, I can tell you that.

I am just WAITING for the first one of them to open their big YAP and state this guy was a "crazy right wingnut job"....BAM! right back in their face with the evidence. It is going to be very humbling of an experience for them in the MSM. They dare not even try it if they know what is good for them....and I know they lurk here.

His wiki talk page re cannabis:

http://cannabis.wikia.com/wiki/User_talk:JPatrickBedell

JPatrickBedell 74 edits since January 8, 2007

motivation

My motivation is quite idiosyncratic, but also very intense. It’s my hope that we will be able to reshape the way that we manage criminal information, and the file releases here are part of that effort.

It’s also my intention that the routine use of the cannabis plant will in no way be a criminal or legal matter.

Volunteers for a 2008 electoral college to assemble at the State Capitols are welcomed!

Presidential Candidates for Decriminalization

Are you aware of 2008 presidential candidates like Mike Gravel who support selling marijuana in a liquor store? Check out some info and contacts (both official and grassroots) in California. Also, check out his positions and a little video here Jaywin 16:35, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

The Washington Post reports the reason why a second suspect is a possibility:

One of the sources said Bedell was seen on a surveillance video near the Pentagon talking to another man.

I presume they're looking for the other guy.

If the research being done on Bedell is accurate, his partner's identity would help flesh out his motivation.

btw, is there any update on his condition? Being shot in the head doesn't make his prognosis too promising.

Synthesizing the best guesses so far, this guy was East Coast well-born, got into software, moved out to CA, got into growing pot, too, and hated W because he controls the drug trade and the WOT. After his bust, he wanted to sell the FBI some software but got nixed on his security clearance.

Probably schizophrenic too: notice lack of wife.

Who he wanted in the Pentagon is the question.

Makes sense. Makes him 36, and born in California, same thing I am getting. Not only that, a DARPA connection (this particular J. Patrick Bedell whose tail I am on had once tried for a USG (DARPA) contract; whether he got one or not is of question).

His arrest record said he was taking medication for depression. He also resisted arrest and the cops had to carry him out of his apartment. Looks like he is a born and bred california pothead wacko who might have made a pit stop in Austin on his way to the Pentagon.

Based on time of day and place, I'm guessing he was waiting for his intended target to emerge from the building after work and walk to the Metro station. After waiting a while, he blew a gasket, pulled and fired at the security guards.

I feel safe and secure now! Obama is on the case:

President Barack Obama was "closely following the case" and getting updates from the FBI through his homeland security and counterterrorism adviser, John Brennan," White House spokesman Nick Shapiro said.

Law enforcement officials identified the suspect as John Patrick Bedell, 36. They also said they were speaking with a second man, who might have accompanied the shooter, and were running his name through databases.

This guy is a regular, run-of-the-mill nutjob conspiracy freak. I’m willing to bet he didn’t identify with any political ideology. Maybe libertarian.

One Facebook Friend is Lew Rockwell, and he also lists among his Facebook "pages" that of Rockwell as well as the Ludwig von Mises Institute.

Libertarian.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

I get--from my instinct and the information available so far that we have all contributed to--that pot smoking, insomniac, computer geek-cum-shooter JPB tends to fit the radical anarchist profile. We shall see. Certainly appears to hate both the Pentagon and George Bush. That alone would put him on a plane with Code Pink!!

OhhhhhhhHow the libs will squirm out of this one tomorrow is going to be really interesting. I REALLY do want to see them try. :-) They SUCK.
