The man detained in connection with a scare at the Pentagon Friday morning may be linked to last fall's shooting at various military targets around northern Virginia.Note the headline of the above article: "Pentagon scare suspect may be linked to shootings." Any attempt that doesn't take lives is a "scare," not a terror attack or an attempted terror attack. "No incendiary device was found."
Four targets were shot at last fall, including the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle twice, along with a Coast Guard recruiting station at the Potomac Mills mall, a Marine Corps recruitment center in Chantilly and the Pentagon.
No one was hurt in the October shootings.
Melaku, a naturalized citizen originally from Ethiopia, has not been charged with any crimes and officials say he acted alone. He is being held in U.S. Park Police custody.
We local to the D.C. area no longer hear about the pro-Al Qaeda materials Melaku was carrying in his backpack, let alone that this "naturalized citizen originally from Ethiopia" was, at one point, determined to be a Muslim. Is he a Muslim? Well, if he is, the mainstream media won't say so now.
