Just heard anchorette report this on pMSNBC
People used to think little ol’ 5’3” me was a lot taller than I am...it’s positioning and behaving with authority.
<< I heard a part of his tape. It was muddled but he raved against Christians and apparently cussed his family also - part of it was bleeped out. >>
He tried to portray himself as a Christ-like figure.
At one point he said that he, like Christ, would be an inspiration to generations of the defenseless and downtrodden (or words to that effect).
But note that this is the leftist or marxist interpretation of Christ - that Christ came to support the downtrodden, a sort of social gospel (as opposed to what Christians know, that Christ’s sacrifice was to provide atonement for our sins and make us acceptable in the sight of God).
He also said something along the lines “you will never know the humiliation of being impaled on a cross and suffering, ...”
What we are hearing are the words of the spirit of evil, of the father of lies.
his roommate was again on Hardball and said he was shocked the reporting said he was 6ft tall.The roommate said ,I’m 5’8” and he is shorter than me......a direct quote
As will you.
Can anyone tell what kind of car?
You said — “aha correct...but Chris Matthews just asked Capus when he personally recvd the package and he said about 12noon. He informed the LEOs doing the investigating during their press conference...??between 3 30 and 4 or so.”
According to the press conference I just heard, they praised NBC for acting so quickly — and the *emphasized* this word — NBC *immediately* contacted authorities. That’s exactly what was said — and emphasized — at the news conference.
Thanks for posting that official version. It doesn’t matter how many people felt fear and terror, you would have to have been asleep for the last 40 years not to know that a political message is necessary. That’s like saying every evil person is a ‘sociopath.’ Only a fool would not give real terrorists the proper attention they require by throwing every nutcase mass murderer into that box.
Jack Thompson is an alarmist with a HUGE axe to grind.
Anyone who believes that a shooting people with a game controller is even remotely equivalent to live fire with a pistol is grossly misinformed.
I told my husband that if there’s any link to Islamic terrorism in the manifesto, they sure won’t be reporting it tonight.
Also, as far as Ishmael or Ismail being a gamer tag, his suite mate said he never saw him play video games...he was always just writing in a word doc, and would do so for hours at a time.
And we still haven't seriously begun to ask how did he get SO good with guns?
I would like to see a link to that.
I will check.
...and if investigations show he ever, ever visited a mosque you can be damn sure we’ll never hear a peep about it.
You said — “Because people have offered various, mostly far-fetched hypotheses as to what the significance of the reference to Ismail/Ishmael might be (which designation was indisputably of importance to this a-hole), your logical conclusion from that is that one should therefore exclude out of hand, even though we know relatively little about this guy, any possibility that he was influenced by islamism? How does that make any sense?”
That’s because there is *nothing* moving the investigation in the direction of Islam — except some ramblings of some people on Free Republic. That’s the only place I see a *shred* of Islam. And that’s a mighty weak thread...
In passing; the Maroon color hat, worn by the gunman, is a clue....
go to http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/ and you will see a picture of the package. It’s printed plainly “A. Ishmail” on the USPS label. looks like he changed the spelling of it.
VT’s school colors are maroon and orange...what kind of clue?

Delivered to NBC (mailroom, I presume) Wednesday at 11:26am, after being forwarded to a different delivery station.
Your item was delivered at 11:26 AM on April 18, 2007 in NEW YORK, NY 10112. The item was signed for by G DAVIS.
You said — “According to Foxnews, the postal worker hand delivered it to NBC that day (Monday)”
Well, that can be proven to be wrong by two things. One your “eyes” and the second thing is your knowledge of postal service delivery.
The first thing — your *eyes* tell you that it was received and hand-written by the postal employee on Monday at 9:10 AM. You can *see* that with your own eyes, looking at the web site where they provide you of a copy to look at.
Second thing — anyone who has ever used the postal service express mail *knows* that they *do not* deliver on the same day that they receive the package. They will deliver it the next day. But, in this case there is the wrong zip code and the wrong address (and you can see it scratched through). That delays the package by one more day. Hence — it arrives on Wednesday.
Thus, we see by our “eyes” and by “common knowledge” and by “common sense” — that exactly what we have been given in this report is accurate and true.
Jihad allows all the faithful to be judge, jury and executioner. It matters not whether they are sane or insane.
Agree, it was very similar, especially when he spoke of us screwing his "brothers and sisters". And I also agree, people that blow themselves up along with non-combatants and innocents, are consumed with crazy thoughts, fueled by murderous hate. Just like Cho.
amen and why I’m fightin Star Travelor. I’m sure Star is exemplary BUT we know little yet and here is MY BISCUIT IN THIS.................NBC..............if he was nuts the drive by’s win.Gun control, mental illness et al.........if it was a sympathetic terrorist hell bent on his 15 minutes that helps us in that Tewrrorism is here in the USA ....NBC will never go there.....that is my problem here
You do not think his refering to the Columbine killers as MARTYRS is pointing towards islam? Ismail is another sign. Also, notice he had shaved his head which is also another ‘ritual’ muslims do before they undertake these missions. The police will know because they also shave their body hair, i.e. Mohammed Atta and the 9/11 hijackers. He appeared to be reading the words off of a prompt of some kind, and in a few places stumbled over them, almost like he was not totally familiar with them. Maybe someone else wrote some of those words. The style of the video was typical of what a Palestinian suicide bomber would make before blowing himself up. All in all, the jury is still very much out on an Islamci connection, but I thibnk there are certainly hints in that direction.
A 23 year old college senior needed help to write a crazy rambling letter and to make a video? Are you really so foolish?
You said — “As will you.”
We’ll see who is still standing when the Jihadis come...
Oh my. What can one say?
Good find! It must be on the list of “Recommended Reading for Lunatics”
Now he says he has terror in his heart. Wonder if he spent time on terrorist web sites?? More points towards Islam than points away.

Very creepy handwriting (shiver)
“According to the press conference I just heard, they praised NBC for acting so quickly and the *emphasized* this word NBC *immediately* contacted authorities. Thats exactly what was said and emphasized at the news conference.”
Well sorry. It’s a 24/7 news period, there is a 3-4 hour gap between when Capus got it and when it was turned over. *NBC News Pres. Capus stated this to Matthews on Hardball at 7pm after the Bryan Williams Evening News.
used A. as his first name and Ismail as last, which is opposite of what was supposed to be on his arm.
Wow, you’re incredibly smart to think to do that. Thank you.
I think what Capus meant was there was a 3-4 hour period between when they received it and when they released it to the press in general. He said they called the authorities in immediately, but that they didn’t release the info to the public/general press until the 4:30 presser.
That's his parents' house, nobody but his family lived there, and his parents don't live in South Korea.
There's NO reason to believe that he's a Muslim convert, that the weird Ismael Ax refers to Islam, nor that this barbarous act was in any way influenced by Islamonazi terrorists. He mentions the two jerks, Kleebold and the other idiot, who did the Columbine massacre as "martyrs" and tries to claim that in some way he, Cho, is Christlike and being "martyred" for others "sins".
Perhaps it was supposed to read Ax Ismail on his arm?? Seems obsessed with Ishmael who was the father of the Muslim culture. Said he had terror in his heart and we ____ his brothers and sisters.

You said — “Jihad allows all the faithful to be judge, jury and executioner. It matters not whether they are sane or insane.”
The “sane ones” (and that’s in terms of being able to function with tasks at hand and in the psychological and psychiatric sense) are the ones who are committed to their religio-governmental philosopy — as the ruling force for this world. That’s their idea.
The insane ones can barely function in any society and wouldn’t be even able to hold a coherent and understandable philosophy and maintain their own way in any socieity (Jihadist society or western society). We’re talking about being able to maintain and hold onto a coherent set of ideas and function in that society. The jidhadist have their ways and we have ours. Because they are different than ours doesn’t make them insane. However, what it does make them is evil — but evil is not insane.
This guy, the shooter is a nutjob and can’t even make sense about what his problems are and what his goals are — and if he has any philosophy that he spouts out, it’s a mish-mash of mixed up ideas in his own head. I’ve already read some of his stuff and have heard some of his own recorded comments. He can’t even make enough sense in his own statements.
At least the Jihadists makes some sense in the framework of their own beliefs and philosophies. This guy (the shooter) can’t even do that....
That wouldn’t be too surprising because Koreans write their names backward from the way we do it. So the A could still stand for Ax. Just one place he wrote it English style A. Ishmael, the other place he wrote it Korean style Ismail Ax (of course the spelling of Ishmael is different.)
Why call Kleebold a martyr instead of ‘hero’?
I WILL BE SHOCKED IF HE’S NOT A MUSLIM!!
or wanna be Mooslim
There’s no accounting for lunatics.
Koreans and Chinese traditionally use family name first, then given name or names.
He seemed pretty out of it. Unimportant to him.
Or he made it beforehand. He had to have a plan for this well in advance. He bought the guns back in February and March.
That’s what I’m thinking. This is so mental, it’s beyond political.
“I think what Capus meant was there was a 3-4 hour period between when they received it and when they released it to the press in general. He said they called the authorities in immediately, but that they didnt release the info to the public/general press until the 4:30 presser.”
Thanks! Remember that old TV show? “The facts, ma’am, just the facts”...
I wonder if Howard Stern commented on that one....
