Random, I doubt that.
That is how the authorities are describing the barrage of rounds at the Pentagon today. Supposedly unknown suspects fired upon the military bureaucratic office building. The official report, as of this afternoon was that of a random event. There were no reports of injuries as two office windows were breached by encroaching rounds. No one was injured in the pre-dawn incident in which shots were fired into two windows at the sprawling Defense Department just across the Potomac River in suburban Virginia.
The DoD stated as there being an estimated shots fired in the predawn hours. The vast compound went immediately to lockdown status as a search of the perimeter lead to an unconfirmed conclusion.
After further investigation, bullets were found lodged in windows at various points in the government compound. The barrage did not penetrate, but lodged in the surrounding perimeter. The weapon, or weapons used are unknown at this point.
Possibilities linger in the thought that the shooting may be related to the earlier shooting at the National Museum in Virginia. The museum incident was believed to be done by a rifle as well, yet not confirmed. As with the current Pentagon incident, the shots are believed to have occured in the early morning hours.
The convergence of law enforcement officers (LEO) from all contingents of government participated in the lockdown and perimeter evidence sweep. A block of officers swept through a nearby grassy area searching for clues in the shooting.
Excuse my wry humor, but I have to say, "Is this another grassy knoll incident?"
Is it really possible that our government is so inept as to speculate as to the possible relation of the two incidents? The bureaucrats seem to lay the agenda that they are all aware of their surroundings, yet they cannot even secure the governmental centre of our government.
Now, I know that I will catch wrath for this statement. Come on, how could they not know more. I have been in these areas, and they are some of the most security sensitive locales in our nation. They won't even allow you to loiter long enough to take a picture without conveying the message of you being a security risk.
It all sounds like a lot of scatter to me. Yet that is my opinion.
I am not stirring a conspracy theory, but a lot less has brought more thoughts of such. "Citizen, beware!. The crisis moment could be upon us in this midterm election cycle. This crisis could be the series of events that could change the outcome of such elections." Well, that is for you to decide.
I find it very interesting that such activity has gone unhindered. The aspect that such activities is lackluster in the approach of our government-relayed impending terrorist activity alerts. Is it a ploy? Or could it be a test run for further terrorist acts. In all accords we need to be aware of our surroundings. When I say "we", I am relaying that as inferring to both citizen and government.
As always, I am drawing forth on my First Amendment right of free speech, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
One man's opinion! Fact, or fiction. It is his to make.
