Posted on 03/04/2010 4:17:20 PM PST by kristinn

Nothing on the wires yet. No more news given than what I put in the headline.

Pentagon Police Chief Richard Keevill speaking now. Says the wounds to the officers were grazes. Says the suspect, didn't say anything before shooting, he "walked up very cool," "reached in his pants like people do to pull out a pass and instead pulled out a gun."

Says gunman is American citizen as far as he knows. Won't describe gunman.

It’s very hard to hear the questions- that’s why I asked...did I HEAR that right? I thought I heard that..

But I’ll tell you- it’s pretty damn strange to just walk up to a couple of Pentagon officials and start shooting without saying a WORD.

One of my most favorite memorabilia I have is a picture of South Parking and the Pentagon in a rear view mirror.

That's still a popular gift. :)

Does anyone find this very coincidental considering health care has been number one priority in the news?

What a way to take the masses mind off of that important issue. Just thinking out loud here.

Has the ethnicity of the shooter been raised? :)
Middle Eastern? Black? White?

CNN is the only cable news outlet carrying the Pentagon press conference.

Chief "can't answer" how many shots were fired. Says there was a likely a third officer involved. Says Pentagon police use a Glock .40 caliber semi-automatic. Says gunman did not get inside Pentagon.

Jeez, the exchange happened so fast and I was straining to hear - I honestly don’t recall if it was male or female.

It IS very strange just to walk up to two policemen and start shooting.

Call me crazy, but I’m getting a whiff of Islam.

(Now the chief says it is inappropriate to describe how the assailant was dressed? Weird...)

The PIO is a non-nonsense kind of guy...not answering much. He won’t describe the suspect- except that he’s male. He was trying to gain entry to the Pentagon.

It’s dreadful to have to listen to Sanchez report this.

Another questions was asked: Did the shooter have on body-armor? The PIO officer said he didn’t want to answer that right now...

Something’s up.

Rick Sanchez on CNN summing up press conference. Says the shooter was trying to gain entrance to the Pentagon, not the Metro. Notes the chief would not answer question of whether the shooter was wearing body armor.

Wouldn't describe his ethnicity. He said he believed the shooter was an American citizen. He wouldn't answer a question about whether the shooter was wearing body armor - kind of strange he wouldn't answer the question and that it was asked in the first place.

so the shooter could be a local boy gone bad, a gang banger, a jihadi wannabe or some other type of killer.

It would be hard to disagree with you, at this point.

Joe Stack (IRS plane crasher) ends his “manifesto” with this, a popular Karl Marx quote and a slap at Capitalism...

“The communist creed:
From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.

The capitalist creed:
From each according to his gullibility, to each according to his greed.”

-Joe Stack (1956-2010)

Didn't the five that are under arrest in Pakistan come from the D.C. area? Could be an epidemic.

“Three people shot outside Pentagon Metro station”
March 4, 2010 - 8:58pm
WASHINGTON -

SNIPPET: “The shooting involved two Pentagon Force Protection Agency police officers. Arlington Country Fire and Rescue says the three people, including the suspect, have been transported to a local hospital.”

SNIPPET: “Keevil says the suspect calmly approached the Pentagon entrance, reached in his coat pocket, pulled out a handgun and started shooting. Police believed the shooter was reaching for Pentagon pass.”

SNIPPET: “The Pentagon Metro station has since reopened. The south entrance to the station is still closed, but trains have resumed service.”

Well, if the shooter was wearing body armor, it wasn’t all that effective, unless he was shot in the head.

I mean, reportedly, he’s in serious condition, right?

That’s a large, busy station and this happened during rush hour.. there has to be one person that witnessed the event willing to offer a description to the media or post it online somewhere.

You’re welcome. In a more civilized era in the not too distant past, there was a shopping mall located inside the Pentagon. I never shopped there but I heard it was nice.

Exactly.

But- the training is- two to the chest- one to the head...then just keep shooting. SO- IF he’s wearing armor- it could have been a head shot that hit him seriously.

Strange indeed. We all know that foreigners never ever shoot our police officers. Foreigners love us. They would never ever hurt us. It's refreshing to know that an American citizen did this.

Could those reporters at least inform us with the shooter's hairstyle or fashion? Anything????? Why can't they do their job, be honest and stop the covering up. Whose side are they on anyway? We have the right to know what type of creep shot.

"That’s a strange answer: “believes he’s an American citizen.”"

It is. How would he even know - unless of course they've ID him.

The body armor is just strange because the question came from no where, plus the guy's reluctance to answer it. If he was shot in the head, it explains why he's in worse shape.

There still a shopping area in the Pentagon, just inside the Metro entrance. Jewelry store, a Best Buy storefront, candy, flowers, optometrist, dentist, several banks, etc.

The body armor is something hospital staff would be the first to know, well, ambulance techs.

They would also note an Allah pendant.

If my DH was there the perp would be DEAD. DH shoots to kill. During his last qualifying round he shot 49 bulls-eyes out of 50. The 50th shot was only about a 1/2 inch from the bulls-eye. He was upset with himself that he missed that last shot, but his chem gear fogged up, so he decided to just fire the last shot anyway.

That was more a blood feud (and with some just cause) than a jihadi IMO. His dad was killed by the Ruskies after the CIA left him out to dry.
