9/11 Truther Takes Aim At Pentagon

And he misses.  John Patrick Bedell walked into the Pentagon yesterday wearing a business suit and surprised police when the cell phone they thought he was reaching for turned out to be a gun.  Bedell grazed two of the police officers before bring shot in the head.  He later died of his wounds.  The question is about motive and we may never know, but there are clues via the internet.

Bedell appears to be a 9/11 Truther.  While I believe that it is appropriate to still have questions about the events surrounding 9/11, Bedell was certifiably a Troofer.  The reason I say this is because he believed the preposterous theory that the World Trade Center and a nearby building (WTC 7) were demolished.  The idea that the government that cannot run the post office was able to pull off rigging the buildings and demolishing them successfully without anyone involved breathing a word about it, is just plain wacky.

His resentments over those events and anger at the military are supposedly the reasons why he decided to commence this attack.  The mainstream media will waste no time trying to link him to the Tea Party Movement just as the man who crashed his plane into the Texas IRS building was initially linked to the Movement. 

Alex Jones’ website Prison Planet, has released a posting this morning questioning whether this incident is another conspiracy due to its proximity with a report from the Southern Poverty Law Center that more attacks from extremists were expected.  Paul Joseph Watson writes, “Such incidents will dovetail perfectly with the rapid advancement of cybersecurity and Internet censorship laws that will force people to obtain licenses to exercise free speech on the web, while providing Homeland Security with the perfect pretext to increase surveillance of all Internet traffic and communications.”  I actually believe that argument holds no water because my common sense brain believes that the government loves for people to express these kinds of whacked out theories, like 9/11 was a demolition, because it furthers their argument that concerned citizens like myself are dangerous extremists.

The real truth here is that Bedell is a lunatic, plain and simple regardless of his conspiracy theory beliefs.  What we will see happen is people on the left paint him as a right wing extremist, while people on the right will paint him as a Moon Landing denier.  Both of these attitudes are wrong.  While some conspiracy theories are crazy, like denial of the moon landing, others are legitimate.  I do wonder why big international groups meet secretly.  I do wonder if the government is ruining our economy on purpose.  And yes, I do wonder if Lee Harvey Oswald acted of his own accord or if he was a hired hitman to take down a president who wanted our money backed by silver and hated Communism.  I have many questions about the Federal Reserve. 

Thankfully, Bedell is a horrible shot or too high on the marijuana he loved and so no one was murdered.

  1. Another out of his mind nut case that cannot just speak his mind over the internet and where ever else he can get onto, but needs to take it another step further and hurt others in the process.

    Now, I would concede that the government has not told us everything, but when have they ever told us everything that we the people wanted to know? This should not surprise those out there that there is some information that is withheld from the public.

    Imagine if you will, the Bush Administration, in the days after the attack on America, came out and said that one of the planes were shot out of the sky to protect Washington, as some say actually happened. There would have been utter chaos from the revelation. People would have been marching on Washington wondering what gave them the right to do something like that. Instead, they told us that people inside Flight 93 overpowered the terrorists on board and the plane was taken into the ground short of Washington.

    Which story sounds better? Which story will have the people come together? Which story will cause the less amount of chaos in the days and weeks following when our government is trying to figure out who to go after for the attacks and how to plan an attack?

    Now, do not get me wrong, I am not one of these Alex Jones followers that believe this nonsense, but yes, there are things that we do not know and we will never know. Lie to the people and you keep the peace, tell the people the TRUTH, and you have CHAOS! Yes, people like you and I could handle the truth, but not everyone could.

  2. You see, it is always either a far left loon or a Muslim!!! When has a true Conservative even attempted something like this in the past few years??? We are the ones being singled out by our OWN Government, all the while it is the people our Government associates with who take up these acts and usually succeed!!
