Nothing on the wires yet. No more news given than what I put in the headline.
Shaping up to be another American muslim from one of the branches...?
Of course- it’s nearly always the first question we ask.
I know we’ll find out soon enough- just really curious if my hearing needs testing:)
Thanks for the thread!
So you think Joe Stack could be involved in this?
That one active mosque is nearby, right?
Maybe he was wearing a uniform (again).
The Mods are anti-semantic...
Very good point.
Just saying it could be a radical left nutcase like Stack or Amy Bishop.
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.
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.
Falls Church or something? I remember us discovering a shocking amount of islam in VA during the DC Sniper days.
I did the electrical design at the Pentagon MEF
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.
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.
I mean, reportedly, hes in serious condition, right?
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.
