Bullet Found In White House Window; May Be Linked To Idaho Falls Man
ABC/Local News 8 ^ | 11/16/11 | Pierre Thomas

Posted on 11/16/2011 2:08:30 AM PST by markomalley

ABC News has learned authorities are increasingly concerned that a man sought in connection with a bizarre shooting incident on the Washington Mall last week may pose a threat to President Obama.

The Secret Service now suspects that a bullet fired in this incident may have hit the White House after a bullet round was found in a White House window, though the round had not yet been conclusively linked to the incident.

Police believe the suspect, Oscar Ramiro Ortega of Idaho Falls, is mentally ill. Local News 8 broke Ortega's connection to Idaho Falls on Sunday night.

Ortega has an extensive record, ranging from domestic violence to drug charges. Sources say a police investigation has uncovered evidence suggesting Ortega has a fixation on the White House.

We can only reach one of two conclusions from this. Either these ‘Occupiers’ are all mentally unstable or they and this shooter are the true Patiots.

I’m willing to believe either conclusion.

Everynight in southeast DC....thousands of folks go to bed and worry about a bullet hitting their house. Maybe someone will finally wake up now and start some gang clean-up around DC.

If I wanted to be a threat to a person I’d try shooting them when they’re actally not a thousand miles away at the time.

The Obama camp made this up, all dictators manufacture assassination conspiracies when they need to quickly force the public into turning it’s collective anger against some third party enemy. Like the US, or at least the Tea Party parts of it. Race card to follow no doubt.

The bullet was found IN the window? Must not have been much energy left in that slug for it to get stuck in a pane of glass.

Kind of like it was Snowball who destroyed the windmill?

There was an incident during the Clintoon administration where a bullet went through the window of the White House Press Room. After that, all the windows were replaced with bullet resistant glass. This kind of glass does often trap the slug.

It could be both. But I'm thinking if it was a setup, the guy would have been an anglo.

...police say Ortega may have spent time blending in with Occupy D.C. protesters.

Nice. He was just "blending in", not an "occupier" per se.

They really do think we're idiots.

Longest case of gun-walking I’ve ever heard of. Maybe Holder can bring some DOJ boys and some rocking chairs and sit on the WH porch and look mean.

No surprie at all the bullet was found in the window, because the window is not a pane of glass, but a few inches of high-tech laminated plastics such as Lexan etc.

That line jumped out at me too. They should have just stuck with the facts and reported what is known to be true, which is that he had been hanging out at the OWS encampment. Unless they know a whole lot about the guy, it’s conjecture to say whether he was one of them or just blending in.
