Pentagon shooting suspect believed to be behind anti-government rants
CNN ^ | March 5, 2010

Posted on 03/05/2010 9:07:43 AM PST by Lorianne

Investigators on Friday were looking into the history of a man who they say shot two police officers at a Pentagon entrance Thursday evening.

The shooter, identified by a law enforcement source as John Patrick Bedell, appears to have railed against the government repeatedly on the Internet.

Through podcasts and a Wikipedia page, a man identified online as JPatrickBedell cast the government as a criminal force destroying personal liberties.

"This seizure of the United States government by an international criminal conspiracy is a long-established reality," the man said in a podcast in November 2006, which also was published as text online.

Such an organization, the man said, "would use its powers to convert military, intelligence, and law enforcement bureacracies (sic) into instruments for political control and the domination and subjection of society, while discrediting, destroying, and murdering honest individuals within those services that work to root out corruption and faithfully serve their fellow citizens."

I read that he was being treated for depression and knew there was nothing more to see.

I can understand this guy or anyone being mad or even fed up with the federal, state or local gub mint,But what did his actions accomplish?
Nothing but show him as a crazy.
And the injuring of innocents.
Good thing he was a lousy shot and no one was killed.

Must be a tea party founder, seeing that his “anti gov” rants were noted even 3 years before the tea party started.

"Could it be he came to not trust the ONE."

CNN has never let the facts get in the way of good political hit piece. Why would they start now?

This guy shot up the Pentagon because white people hate our dear leader. Get with the program.

No mention from CNN that this guy is also a militant Bush hater and a 9/11 Truther.
