Nothing on the wires yet. No more news given than what I put in the headline.
I KNEW Big Sis and company would look
for an out for more monitoring, tracking.
They’re foaming at the mouth to shut us
down and control the web.
I still sense a change at FNC. Maybe they
were warned of a coming clampdown and watch
your p’s and q’s.

2 Pentagon Police Officers Shot Outside D.C. Metro Station
Thursday, March 04, 2010
SNIPPET: The motive for the shooting in suburban Washington, D.C., wasnt immediately clear, but Fox News confirmed the gunman was identified as 36-year-old John Patrick Bedell.
A second person was being questioned by authorities, but sources say that person may just be a witness and not considered a suspect .
The gunman was calm as he approached the officers at the main entrance around 6:40 p.m., Pentagon Police Chief Richard Keevil said at a news conference. The officers asked to see his pass to enter the building; he started shooting without saying a word.

WaPost uses FR to fact-check their stories - so they will not be exposed and embarrased for their blantant biased propanganda mistakes
My BG on this was on the UNIBOMBER and the Beltway Snipers
They paid quick and careful attention about TK - slow and sloppy on the Snipers - Chief Moose as a racist goon I spotted from Page One “Two white men in a white van!” (I said a plain brown wrapper ex-LE-interceptor with 2 black Muzzies) Who was dead on?
Both were logical cases - esp. TK - but took some time to develop and refine
Wacko! He needs to live so they
can give him sodium pentathal and
vigorously interrogate him, after
the other drugs wear off.
If it’s the same guy, he mentioned Petraeus in one of his rants.
I wonder if the BDS-infected moonbat pothead even felt anything after he was shot in the head by the cops.
HUH? “nabbed Stack?” What did I do?????
BREAKING: I just talked with man who thinks he is father of Pentagon shooter John Patrick Bedell. Says his son has been slipping. about 2 hours ago via web
I'm the first person to find him, cops haven't called yet. But when I said I might have wrong man, he said "I don't think so" about 2 hours ago via web
Father tells me his son is a grat student at San Jose State. KNX1070 about 2 hours ago via web
Direct Twitter link to first comment.
Now, that sounds like our guy. Truther, seeking justice. We need to be careful of what we post in these cases. Putting innocent persons out as the perp could get us all sued.

Interesting huh? They know FR is a good source of fast info, they use the info and then try to turn the story around blaming it on a Freeper.
You have a good memory for all political facts.
Still trying to sign off, lol.

For sure! Obama knows how these conservative websites have hurt him - and will continue to..
Under the magnifier they don’t look the same. Eyebrows different, nose. Hard to tell for sure.
Major type, I apologize.
Have him have the father look at Bedell’s cell number on his arrest record.. does the # look familiar?
Reports: Pentagon Gunman From Hollister
2 Officers Injured In Shooting
POSTED: 8:01 pm PST March 4, 2010
UPDATED: 9:26 pm PST March 4, 2010
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Multiple news sources are reporting that a man accused of shooting two officers at the Pentagon complex on Thursday is from Hollister.
Law enforcement sources identified the suspect as John Patrick Bedell, 36.
KNX Radio, which is based in Los Angeles, originally reported that Bedell is from Hollister.
The Washington Post then reported that when a call was made to a home in Hollister, a man identified himself as John Bedell and said he had a 36-year-old son in the Washington D.C. area named John Patrick Bedell before hanging up.
Two officers suffered grazing wounds when a gunman drew a weapon from his pocket and opened fire at the teeming subway entrance to the Pentagon complex at about 6:40 p.m. EST Thursday.
The officers wounds were not life-threatening and they were being treated at a hospital, said Richard Keevill, chief of Pentagon police.
“He just reached in his pocket, pulled out a gun and started shooting,” Keevill said. “He walked up very cool. He had no real emotion on his face.” The Pentagon officers returned fire with semiautomatic weapons. Of the suspect, the chief said, “His injury is pretty critical.”
The assault at the very threshold of the Pentagon - the U.S. capital’s ground zero on Sept. 11, 2001 - came four months after a deadly attack on the Army’s Fort Hood, Texas, base allegedly by a U.S. Army psychiatrist with radical Islamic leanings. In the immediate aftermath Thursday, investigators did not think terrorism was involved but were not ruling that out and did not discuss possible motives.
That’s him, the father, it truly seems. This kid is from Hollister, California apparantly. I tracked it at least two hours ago down to the websites the kid ran, spamming trouble he got into, and lots of other things. Police are slow on this one, Freepers and CBS Radio apparantly are quick.
BUMP to post no. 403.
Hollister is nice rural country living in Calif.
The city is modern and we almost bought a house out there except a snake came down the hallway — I ruled it out.
Oh jeeze ..
Suspect is dead.
I feel bad for the father. Watching your son ‘slip’ as he put it down into something like this must be very hard.
Update: Medical examiner’s office says suspect in Pentagon shooting has died — AP
As was expected, with that kind of head wound. Prayers for his soul (I dont wish eternal Hell on anyone—well, except maybe Kim Jong il), and of course also prayers for THOSE RECOVERING IN D.C., those heroes there today. They protected our beloved Pentagon and really walked the walk.
Ditto your comments.
Now the media can speculate why he did it.
Yes, me too. I will say prayers for his grieving father.
Who knows, might be related to the national educational protests today... a lot of crazies on UC and Cal State campuses
They sure did .. and right fine shots,
even as wounded as they were.
God bless ‘em.
Meg Whitman supporter
Media speculation will be in full swing...
I don’t like this...
It sounds like someone flipped a switch on this guy.
Feds weigh expansion of monitoring...
What do you mean? As in, intentionally blew one of his breakers?
I’m supposing there will be a suicide note found, now that we think we know who he is.
I used to drive a shuttle there by the front of the metro exit.

Imagine what they’ll be doing with
the Census info .. coming soon.
Still not sure if we really have
to legally answer all the questions.
As Mark Steyn called her, “Janet Incompetano.”
I’m not clear on that either.
I want to answer the absolute minimum.
I find it interesting that he has a link to the Marine Marathon on his facebook.
I wonder if he was a runner, or if that would have been a great place for him to shoot up a bunch of Marines. The marathon is in 33 days, so he might have been planning ahead.
Wish we could get a conclusive answer
from someone who knows.
The law says you CAN be fined, but I’ve
also read that no one has ever been fined.
Too many questions.
I don’t like the form.
