I think that’s more for keeping people from mobbing the train station versus preventing some nut from getting into the most secured building on the planet.

>> It is served by dozens of buses at all hours of the day, so the shooter could be a local boy gone bad <<

If it were a big-time ROP operation, surely it would have occurred on the train — not outside at an entrance. So my guess is that the incident involves a jilted lover or a drug dealer’s enforcer.

Once I saw that kristinn had beat me on the thread I requested that the mods pull my thread. I didn’t see yours, so perhaps it was my fault that they puled yours, cause I told the mod that kirstinn had already posted a thread.

Holy shizzle. I used to work in D-ring, and that's where I always came inside. I may know one of the cops who got shot.

Three people, including two Pentagon police officers, were shot Thursday at the Metro transit entrance to the Pentagon, Pentagon officials told NBC News.

The third victim was possibly the suspect gunman, NBC reported.

Two of the victims were reportedly taken to George Washington Hospital for treatment; the third was treated at the scene for what was believed to be minor injuries.

No problem. The Mod Squad does what it does. This thread was a bit more articulate, and by then may well have had more replies. Only La Lydia managed to post to mine.

If white guy - terrorism. If ROP - no indication of terrorism.

No kidding. If it was a damn mohammed who shot the unarmed people, then you can bet the farm that the stupid bastards at the FBI will state that this was not terrorism.

Meanwhile, that worthless weasel General Casey will soon issue a statement saying that this "tragedy" should never overshadow the importance of political correctness, or some such horsesh!t.

I now understand what Lincoln was saying when he spoke about how perverting the constitution ultimately just made it a suicide pact.

CNN quoting Pentagon Police spokesman: "We believe two police officers are shot and one person in custody."

CNN adds George Washington Hospital tells them that they are treating three people from the incident, presumably the two officers and the shooter.

CNN further reports the lockdown has been lifted at the Pentagon except for the Metro entrance.

Yes, two police officers were shot by the suspect.

Interesting.

I wonder if the shooter was trying to get into the Pentagon and shoot everyone he could?

ABC News has their report up. They add this to what is already known:

Some witnesses reported hearing gunshots being fired in the station and people screaming.

Maybe this is something like the CIA shooting where the muzzie ambushed people at the entrance.

From HumanEvents.com, April 29, 2008:

He [Bill Ayers] got off on the group’s multiple explosions, too, and discusses them rather lovingly in his memoir.

Ideal Bombing Weather:
'Everything was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon,' he writes (although he concedes it was really a group effort). 'The sky was blue. The birds were singing. And the bastards were finally going to get what was coming to them.' (p. 256 in the 2003 edition.)

I could easily get addicted watching the tweets.
Some are crazy.

Two officers and one civilian wounded.
