After naming the wrong man and the shooter, and getting the weapons used completely wrong, here’s yet one more thing the corrupt media is not telling you:
From Pamela Geller [Atlas Shrugs]
Law enforcement officials told NBC News that Alexis created a webpage with the name “Mohammed Salem.” This is the first I am hearing of this, and have seen no media mention of it (although the fact that he had been a Buddhist has been headlined and recounted numerous times, despite the fact is that there is no compulsion to violence, oppression and ethnic cleansing in the teachings of Buddhism).
It is striking that he would create a page “Mohammed Salem.” Perhaps as he became more violent, he identified with the homicidal doctrine of jihad. I do not expect the jihad-aligned media to look into this aspect of the case.
Clearly, Muslim Brotherhood groups were concerned that it was jihad. Hamas-CAIR canceled a press conference on Tuesday that was going to expose the funding of the “islamophobia” industry. What funding? I mean, really. And devout Muslims cheered and suggested responsibility for the Navy Yard shooting that killed 13. And many jihadists “expressed their joy” that the Navy shooting was a response to Muslim leader Ayman al-Zawahiri ‘s strikes in America.
“Navy Yard gunman’s mother says she is heartbroken and sorry for families,” by Kyle Eppler, Pete Williams and Erin McClam for NBC News, September 18 (thanks to Robert Spencer):
The mother of Aaron Alexis, the Washington Navy Yard shooter, said Wednesday that she was heartbroken and sorry for the families of the victims and that she was glad he is “in a place where he can no longer do harm to anyone.”
In a brief statement to a reporter in New York, the woman, Cathleen Alexis, said her son “has murdered 12 people and wounded several others.”…
Authorities say they are still looking for a motive. Since Alexis carried out the attack Monday at the headquarters of the Naval Sea Systems Command, signs have emerged of a troubled history.
• Alexis, who served as a naval reservist from 2007 to 2011 and worked more recently as a civilian contractor, had a military disciplinary record that included disorderly conduct, insubordination and unexcused absences.
Newport, R.I., police said he called them Aug. 7 to say he had changed hotels twice because he believed people were chasing him and sending vibrations through the walls to keep him from sleeping.
Police said they had forwarded their report to police at the naval station in Newport. Military officials told NBC News on Wednesday that they had found no evidence that naval police forwarded the information to any higher command outside the base.
• The Department of Veterans Affairs said Wednesday that it saw Alexis twice. He went to a VA emergency room in Providence, R.I., on Aug. 23 complaining of insomnia and was given sleep medicine and told to follow up with a doctor, the agency said. Five days later, Alexis showed up at a VA emergency room in Washington to get a refill and was again encouraged to see a doctor, the VA said.
The VA said Alexis denied struggling with anxiety or depression or having thoughts about hurting himself or others. It also said he enrolled in VA health care in February 2011 and never sought an appointment for mental health.
• Alexis also had run-ins with the law over gun violence. He was accused in 2004 of having shot out the tires of a car in Seattle and in 2010 of having fired a gun into an upstairs apartment in Fort Worth, Texas.
• Friends and relatives have also said he had a preoccupation with the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, felt slighted as a veteran, had money problems and was so unhappy with his life that he considered leaving the U.S.
Law enforcement officials told NBC News that Alexis created a webpage with the name “Mohammed Salem,” but they said he never did anything with it. They said they had found nothing else that might indicate any interest in violent jihad or even in Islam.
We may never know the truth about apron Alexis, and what his real motivation was. He was clearly disturbed, and had serious mental health issues. Reportedly he was hearing voices for days leading up to the murders, and we know that Navy and DoD bureaucrats dropped the ball all along the way, by ignoring, or failing to report clear signs of dangerous activities by Alexis.
It’s telling that Muslims were quick to celebrate the mass murder, and hoped to claim responsibility for it. That should tell you all you need to know about those animals.
The Navy Yard shooting was another in a long line of preventable shootings, that likely happened because of political correctness. In the Ft Hood massacre, Hassan had actually TOLD his superiors of his plans to slaughter “infidels” at his earliest convenience, and yet, since he was Muslim, his superiors were too timid to take action, fearing retribution from the left. I’m guessing this played some part in the Navy shooting as well. Here’s a black guy, clearing having difficulties, but hey, it would be racist to point all of that out.
At some point, we have to say to hell with political correctness, and call a spade a spade. I KNOW Hassan could have been stopped before the Ft Hood massacre, and while I hope he rots in hell, I can’t help but think Alexis could have been stopped long before he carried out his mass murder spree, and 12 innocent lives could have been spared.
