The FBI has put out a public appeal for information about the deceased shooter in the Navy Yard massacre.

Aaron Alexis, born May 9,  1979, was born in Queens, N.Y., and was last a resident of Fort Worth.

“Aaron Alexis, deceased, is believed to be responsible for the shootings at the Washington Navy Yard, in the Southeast area of Washington, DC, around 8:20 a.m. on September 16, 2013. The FBI is asking for the public’s assistance with any information regarding Alexis,” the poster states. “If you have any information concerning this individual, please contact the FBI’s Washington, DC Field Office at 202/278-2000 or 1-800-CALL-FBI.”

At a press conference moments ago, the head of the FBI’s Washington office, Valerie Parlave, stressed “no piece of information is too small.”

“We are looking to learn everything we can about his recent movements… and associates,” she said.

D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier wouldn’t give any details on how Alexis was confronted and taken down after “multiple” engagements, yet added “there’s no question he would have kept shooting” if he hadn’t been stopped.

Mayor Vincent Gray said the black man still being sought by police was spotted on a video at the Navy Yard.

“We don’t know what the motive is at this stage,” Gray said. “…We don’t have any reason to suspect terrorism but it’s not being ruled out.”

Yeah, but why believe the administration's reflexive, preprinted trope on every incident regardless of the facts. Ft. Hood is not yet determined to be terrorism, when it was obvious to everyone but Val and 'Chelle.

"D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier wouldn’t give any details on how Alexis was confronted and taken down after 'multiple' engagements, yet added 'there’s no question he would have kept shooting' if he hadn’t been stopped."

Stopped by the second gunman repeatedly mentioned in media reports when the story first broke, no doubt. The second gunman who was there to make sure Alexis died after accomplishing another government-sponsored massacre to push disarming the population.

Just as that guy in camo gear found in the woods after the Newtown school massacre was there to ensure Lanza "committed suicide". As with Newtown, there are simply too many questions remaining about Alexis, starting with the idea that someone who shoots out car tires in a fit of road rage is not prosecuted and gets to join the military a few years later.

Don't put anything past this administration or the gun grabbers.

AP, Drudge, NYPost reporting he was treated for mental illness in August (?). When are we going to be told what psychiatric medications this guy was taking?

Let me save the FBI some trouble. He hung out with the devil and was moving toward Hell

According to a Drudge Report link to a Yahoo News article, Alexis had just been hired as a civilian contract worker at the Navy Yard, had undergone a stringent background check by the "Defense Security Service", and received a "Secret" clearance pursuant to that employment.

One would think that such a background check would have turned up the behavioral problems that have so far been mentioned in news reports. It almost certainly would have been more comprehensive than any background check currently required, or proposed, to buy a firearm of any kind.

A "Secret" clearance is not that rigorous.

Apparently not. Maybe they should substitute the firearms "Instant background check" instead?

Based on past performance, the need for all this information will be used to bury this latest act of violence. Under this administration the FBI has lost all the credence it ever had. Political correctness has replaced common sense and true justice, and we have become a people ruled by political garbage.

I wonder if Mr. Alexis would have been Obama's nephew if he had one.

With all the information the NSA has, why does the FBI need the public's help.

They should have seen this coming!

I've been wondering about that myself. Alexis supposedly went through a background check by the Defense Security Service, and was granted a "secret" clearance; why does the FBI need the public's help if that Federal Agency already checked him out?

Or was this another case of political correctness short-circuiting the process?

Not PC. The process just sucks. Since 9/11, everybody and his brother needs a Secret clearance. A Secret clearance is only marginally better than no clearance. The DSS is overloaded.

They may be too busy monitoring non Obaam sheeple sites like this one.

It's time to do something positive, kids.

Put fund together that will help the families of the victims with expenses.

You talk the talk about being morally better than your ideological opponents.

It's time to walk the walk.

We'll get right on that after we finish listening to Obama's speech about gun control and how this was all Bush's fault.

Your side disarmed the military on bases. The blood is on your hands. You raise the damned funds, hypocrite. I'm about allowing our military to protect itself. Then we don't have to have victims.

This piece of trash we must call our President went merrily along with his prepared remarks. There was a brief aside to acknowledge the unfortunate incident at the Naval Base, calling it "another senseless shooting" and trailing off with a whiff of glee that he has another excuse to inflict his gun legislation. Then it was back to business with much bragging about how miraculously he's restored the economy, in spite of Republicans trying desperately to keep it un-restored, and ending with more partisan poison. There seems to be no low too low for this repulsive man. I don't understand why his handlers don't try to refrain his inclination toward the crass and the vulgar that come so naturally to him. At least they talked him into cancelling tonight's Latin Festival, though he probably didn't understand why he had to.

Because they are the same. This administration is staffed by ill-mannered, spoiled children.
