Aaron Alexis walked into building 197 of the Washington Navy Yard, walked up to a 4th floor Atrium and began to brutally murder innocent people in a cafeteria from his spot in the overlook. The new question is did he go in as Aaron Alexis or Mohammed Salem?
NBC News put up a story two days ago, titled, Navy Yard gunman’s mother says she is heartbroken and sorry for families.
Buried in the middle of the story is this paragraph:
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.
But, they said, there were obviously a ‘lot of red flags.’
Alexi was a Buddhist reports say!
They are anti-war and violence so he obviously wasn’t a good Buddhist.

NBC News also reported two days ago that Aaron Alexis ‘was not happy with America.’
“He was tired of dealing with the government,” said his friend Kristi Suthamtewkal, whose husband owns the Thai Bowl Restaurant in Fort Worth, where Alexis worked in exchange for room and board.
Aaron Alexis was so unhappy with his life in America — where he was beset by money woes and felt slighted as a veteran — that he was “ready to move out of the country” last year, a friend said Tuesday.
Mostly, though, she felt like he was fed up with the United States.
Friends say he was angry and vengeful.
“I knew he was not happy with America and he felt slighted as a veteran and he was ready to move out of the country,” Kristi Suthamtewkal said.
He didn’t leave, however, he found his way to Texas and signed up for the contractor’s job with ‘The Experts’ so he could work for the government in a military installation.
Aaron Alexis was obviously mentally ill, but that would make him particularly vulnerable to radical Islam. Who knows how he interpreted the horrors of 9/11 more than a decade later.
NBC is pushing Obama for gun control though the problem here was not the law.
We are facing greater and greater threats from domestic terrorists and we will need our guns. We allow drug dealers, terrorists and other malcontents to freely cross our borders. We will need our guns.
Why would Alexis have a page under a Muslim name and why, while he was most disenchanted with America, would he sign up to work as a defense contractor? We won’t get the answers. Alexis is dead, the FBI isn’t talking, and all the media cares about is taking away our guns.
Alexis was one who definitely should not have had a gun or a security clearance. That is not the result of too few laws. It’s the result of incompetence on someone’s part, possibly PC is at the heart of it. For now, it’s all supposition.
