Breitbart ^ | September 16, 2013 | Breitbart

Posted on 09/16/2013 1:49:00 PM PDT by Biggirl

A US Navy commander told Monday how he saw a co-worker shot in the head just a few feet from him, during mass shooting on a Washington base that left at least 12 people dead.

Navy officer Tim Jirus told reporters the man from the Washington Navy Yard's maintenance department was felled by gunshots as workers scrambled out of buildings following reports of a shooter on the rampage.

You’d think they’d have security watches in a naval yard. This is not your daddy’s navy.

Civilians guarded the facility. This is another episode of the Obama Holder effect.

Son of Obama or son of Mohammed?

None of the victims was armed, of course.

On second thought, no, I won’t post that.

Great movie - especially when juxtaposed with a viewing of Failsafe.

I worked in secure areas for 30 years, military and contractor. I thought physical security became much too lax, beginning in about 1992. A product of the end of the Cold War, I suppose.

What's behind it? Especially if there is a racial and/or Islamist connection. It may take months for the MSM to report it however. Who's influencing these people?

The doctrine of vicarious liability.

20+ years ago the $PLC won a civil law suit against Tom Metzger, his son, and his white supremacist group. The suit was on behalf of a victim of a vicious murder by skinheads of a defenseless black man.

"Using the doctrine of vicarious liability, plaintiffs' attorneys argued that the Metzgers should be found liable for intentionally inciting the skinheads to engage in violent confrontations with minorities. A jury agreed, returning a record $12.5 million verdict against the Metzgers and WAR. Tom Metzger was personally responsible for $5.5 million of that sum."

IIRC the skinheads were not members of WAR and their only connection was the public statements released by Metzger's group.

Fat chance of exposing the influence that the lucrative civil rights and victims' industries, the Obama Administration, the radical Muslim groups, the Obama Administration's U.S. Department of MSM, whoever, has on many in the radicals around the Nation.

Private security has been guarding the Navy Yard long before Obama.

At any rate, if the guy was in fact a contractor, then he probably had a contractor's badge granting access through the main gate and walked on in.

Fox News is covering it, and they're saying that Aaron was a Buddhist who at one point worked at a Texas Thai restaurant. He also visited Thailand. Whether the Buddhist story is cover or not is anybody's guess.

Thailand does have a Muslim terrorism problem in the south, which borders Muslim Malaysia.

I have been checked by civilian and/or military security to get on the bases in the San Diego area... just recently security stopped requiring a base sticker on your cars, all u had to show was an ID card and u are good to go...I cannot remember the last time any one checked my car trunk or etc...so it very easy to get on a base IMO

In 92 when SAC went away and the fighter jocks took control the AF security and training for nukes went to hell has we’ve witnessed in the last few years.

The navy, except for places like sub bases have never seemed too secure. Back in the early 80s I spent a week TDY at the Navy Yard and it was easy to get in and out, not at all secure based on what I was used to.

Civilian guards came about over the last 10 or so years. Some seem good, some not so much but it seems that I see more Airmen at the gates of Offutt than I do civilians these days.

Al Qaeda Leader Calls for New Attacks on US

Al Qaeda Leader Calls for New Attacks on US (Photo Credit: AFP/Getty Images)

(BEIRUT) — Al Qaeda failed to make good on threats to strike U.S. diplomatic outposts on this week’s 9/11 anniversary, but in a new audio tape, the leader of the besieged terror network renewed his plea to followers to strike at American interests — and to aim lower, if necessary, with individual acts of violence.

...
In the new Arabic-language tape, released Sept. 12 Zawahiri chortled over the “blessed” 2001 strikes that left thousands of Americans dead, as well as April’s Boston Marathon bombings that killed just three Americans, which he claimed was proof of a Muslim “uprising.”

“Keeping America in tension and anticipation only costs a few disparate attacks here and there,” Zawahiri explained during his 72-minute recording. “These disparate strikes can be done by one brother or a few of the brothers.”

It’s no wonder that the MSM isn’t pulling a stunt like they did in the Zimmerman News Story: The Naval Yard shooter was a White Afro American? Obama, the MSM and the Dems are probably having a conniption because the shooter was black, rather than white?

There’s no Facebook page, or any other social media pages, and his Linkedin page was deleted hours ago.

Nothing, no college or high school records, and no records on his parents, who were identified by the aunt as Anthony and Sarah.

Went to the USMC training base in 2004, could not get in without the car being searched, presenting your actual photo ID removed from your wallet, etc. Same thing at Walter Reed in 2004-2005, as well as other DC federal facilities, and Bethesda in Maryland. All of them had guards in the military, I assume they were armed. All had those funky concrete barriers that required a person to drive 10 mph or less to get through them. I did not realize this was no longer the protocol after 9-11.

Checking for ID’s is more secure than just waving vehicles with DoD decals through the gate. This matches the occupant(s) to the proferred ID, not a car which can be borrowed or stolen. The security folks (AF and contractor) where I work actually take the ID from me, look at me, look at the ID and studiously compare the 2.

In addition, there are other means used to verify the ID’s, so one can’t just get “waved through” by having a decal or flashing an ID like in the past.

At the installation I work at, they do random vehicle searches, no rhyme or reason, as it should be. You just never know when it’s “your turn”.

Prayers for all the victims and their families.
