Pentagon Alert - Metro entrance closed - Police with guns drawn
Pentagon Alert System/Twitter | elc

Posted on 06/11/2010 10:18:42 AM PDT by elc

Pentagon alert notification just popped up. Pentagon Metro entrance closed.

Quick search of twitter shows police with guns drawn. Possible suspicious package.

Hmm, wasn't there an alert from the FBI earlier this week about terrorists trying to disrupt things with fake suspicous packages.

From Stars and Stripes:

Stars and Stripes reporters Jeff Schogol and Kevin Baron are reporting that police responded Friday afternoon to a man with a suspicious package outside the Pentagon’s Metro entrance. Police with guns drawn shouted at a man to “Get down!”

Details via Stars and Stripes:

1:40 PM UPDATE: Police detained a man at the Pentagon Metro entrance Friday afternoon after he refused to follow orders from police, said Defense Department spokeswoman Cheryl Irwin. Jeff Schogol saw police talking to the man, who had a backpack on the ground, shortly before police ordered everyone inside the Pentagon and closed the Metro entrance. Police called an explosive ordnance disposal team to look into the backpack, Irwin said. A police officer near the Metro entrance said the bag has been cleared and the EOD team was leaving the area.

Let’s hope it was just some MAJ or contractor being an a-hole and not the start of a bigger effort to tie up police resources with suspicious packages.

i’ve been wondering what van jones meant about a change happening this week.

could a series of terrorist activities be what he meant? my guess is that they would do it themselves, and paint it as a tea-party protest

Hey, when you post material I don't like, I hijack your thread and give you a hard time.

When you post material I like, I steal it so people think I'm funny.

If a terrorist gets shot for pretending to be a bomber, does he or she still get to go to Allah’s paradise?

Is Jack Bauer on the scene?

If he was the whole area would look like the aftermath of a Roman battlefield but there would be no media coverage and even the police would be unaware that anything was happening there.
