Thanks. So how many terror attacks uhhh...’workplace violence’ on US military bases under Obama’s watch does this make now?

Possibly so the shooters won’t change clothing or try to change their appearance in some way.

Far too many. Do we have confirmed that there was more than one shooter? I’ve heard both one and then two.

Dr’s are reporting 2 different calibers being found in victims, that’s why the confusion about how many shooters

Not sure we have anything on number of shooters confirmed yet but it has to be a cell to have gotten this far IMHO.

Besides the obvious action of shooting personnel, what else could be a target in a Navy yard?

No, but there’s probably a lot of other black people working there, so if they change their clothing, put on a hat, etc. they might be able to mix in with the crowd.

So the scene can be “Hasan’d” into a workplace violence incidence rather than admit to yet another islamayhem scene.

Lede is 2 shooters not three.

Consider the source.

I would think that if there was a hard target there they would not begin by shooting random people, but who knows? Could be a diversion...

Nah...just a little workplace violence. You can take that to the bank.

Oh, and we will soon be told “this was not terrorism”, bank on that too.

Of course! After watching all of Stephen Couglin’s videos on Islamist terrorism just a few weekends ago, I am certain this will be Islamist jihadi’s in our own military doing this! They can’t even say Islamist or jihadi in our training manuals anymore for cryin out loud. This is what happens when a bunch of PC leftists run our levers of power. Pathetic!

Notice too that perp is described as clean shaven.....what jihadis do before an attack.

They wouldn't do so in response to CNN. If they are smart, they already have different-color clothing/windbreaker to change into. If they don't care, CNN report won't change that.

One shooter was described as a “black male” — bet it’s blamed on “homegrown terrorism” (or...wait for it... Sarah Palin, or the tea party or George Bush) — the media will pull out every excuse possible.

Could be just a precaution. Does suggest this is more than a kinetic relationship issue (break up murder) as my cop friends say.
