Claims of warnings about the pair to police BEFORE the killings started were piling up last night.

The Rev Al Archer, who runs the Lighthouse Mission Centre in Bellingham where the pair once lived, said he suspected the Gulf War veteran was a terrorist after September 11.

He said Muhammad distributed pro-Islam brochures, made anti-American slurs and also threatened to kill cops. He added: "If he'd been stopped at that time, a lot of people would be alive who are now dead."

Mr Archer revealed that Muhammad, who was existing on handouts, started travelling extensively by air. Harjeep Singh, who knew the snipers at a YMCA gym, said he was alarmed at their vow to go on a gun-rampage, targetting cops and fuel tankers.

Police and an FBI agent interviewed Mr Singh but no action was taken.

Full article: SNIPER ESCAPE BID FBI agents grab him as he flees

THE 17-year-old Washington sniper made a dramatic freedom bid—by punching his way through the CEILING of an interview room.

John Lee Malvo seized his chance after being left alone by FBI interrogators.

He leapt on a table and quickly smashed the flimsy ceiling tiles with his fists—then began hauling himself up into a ventilation shaft.

Agents dashed into the room, grabbed his flailing legs and wrenched the struggling teenager back down.

Last night the FBI refused to comment on the embarrassing incident at the "secure" and secret federal centre in Baltimore, Maryland.

Malvo and fellow sniper John Muhammad, 41—who face the death penalty in seven different jurisdictions —are refusing to help enquiries into their reign of terror in the US capital.

Posed

One agent said: "Never mind co-operation. They're not even talking."

The pair—who killed ten and wounded three in a 21-day spree— could also be charged with an unsolved murder on America's west coast.

Keenya Cook, 21, was killed in February with a single head shot as she opened her front door in Tacoma, Washington State, where Muhammad and Malvo were living at the time.

The assassins were friends with her family—and even posed for the now infamous picture together on their sofa.

But ex-Army marksman Muhammad, who changed his name from Williams because he converted to Islam, fell out with the Cooks when they befriended his ex-wife.

Claims of warnings about the pair to police BEFORE the killings started were piling up last night.

The Rev Al Archer, who runs the Lighthouse Mission Centre in Bellingham where the pair once lived, said he suspected the Gulf War veteran was a terrorist after September 11.

He said Muhammad distributed pro-Islam brochures, made anti-American slurs and also threatened to kill cops. He added: "If he'd been stopped at that time, a lot of people would be alive who are now dead."

Mr Archer revealed that Muhammad, who was existing on handouts, started travelling extensively by air. Harjeep Singh, who knew the snipers at a YMCA gym, said he was alarmed at their vow to go on a gun-rampage, targetting cops and fuel tankers.

Police and an FBI agent interviewed Mr Singh but no action was taken.

There were also chilling new revelations last night about how Malvo and Muhammad mocked police by repeatedly slipping through dragnets.

Their 1990 blue Chevrolet Caprice— a killing machine with holes in the boot to fire through—was first noted by police on October 3, just 24 hours after the first killing. But it was lost in the system while the entire hunt centred on a white van.

Meanwhile, Muhammad was stopped or spoken to by officers TEN times for various traffic offences.

During a spot-check on October 8, he was parked and asleep at the wheel. But cops failed to look in the boot, where they would have found the Bushmaster XM15 rifle.

The most chilling escape was last Monday when two illegal immigrants in a white van were held in a swoop as they used a phone booth being staked out by cops.

Muhammad and Malvo had given the number of the booth to detectives in a phone call. And just yards away, they were lurking in their blue Chevy, watching every move in the fiasco.

The car was even caught in the background on news footage—and still the jigsaw did not piece together.

Finally, police realised the car they were looking for. But Chief Charles Moose refused to reveal the number plate. It was only when one of his team leaked it that the pair were found one-and-a-half hours later.

Muhammad was "existing on handouts" --- then suddenly "started travelling extensively by air." Who was footing the bill?

Unfreakin believable. If this is accurate, Moose is an idiot!

Looks like we have pockets of terrorist's and terorrist enablers. It's going to come down to local police and how sold out they are to the leftists. They are all over the frigging place too.

Around midnight, Moose announced a Federal Arrest Warrant with no picture (even to hold up, he said we could download it from the FBI site) No New Jersey Plate number, no description of the car. If sources on his team had not leaked it, and if CNN had not announced it starting at 10 pm and Fox about an hour later, the Trucker would not have spotted them at 1 am as they did, in spite of Moose!

But what's this crap about Homeland Defense, it seems to be only a case of "HOME-BOY Defense" "Chief Bullwinkle refused to reveal the number plate. It was only when one of his team (Rocky) leaked it that the pair were found.......one-and-a-half hours (90 MINUTES) later." //ppppparaphrased//

Why did the Alabama cops not plug this guy at the Liquor Store murder, would that have stopped the murder of 10 more AMERICANS?

More than likely, that is the case...coupled with other robbery efforts.

PC Moose is not an idiot. He is a very smart black racist who uses Political Correctness to harass whites and to allow black criminals like these two to skate free.

Yesterday I posted an excerpt from the Post which addressed this problem of PC Moose. There are over 160 replies on this thread. It is amazing how many pseudo conservatives still are defending the black racist, PC Moose. (Police spotted suspects' car 10 times during sniper spree (PC killed more innocents!)

It's an old COP (citizen on Patrol) trick.

If the good chief had let out the license plate at the news conference - then an AV rated Islamonazi defense lawyer would have used the rules of evidence in a court proceeding to get Islamonazi Snipers out of jail. With the information being leaked, the rules of evidence are not an issue in a court of law - and the chief can say, "release was not authorized".

I know one thing.

I wouldn't have wanted to be in his shoes. I think he did an outstanding job. btw - the tarrot card was released by the same method, to give the chief an opportunity to bang on his chest to the press. He's no fool.

Wasn't the FBI supposed to be in charge pretty much from the start? If they took orders from Moose, they certainly weren't doing their jobs. I think the FBI is completely to blame, and if they were doing their jobs these Muslim groups and immigrant smugglers would have been closely watched since Sept 11, 2001.
