FULL TITLE - "DC Capitol SWAT Team That Was Ordered NOT To Neutralize Navy Yard Shooter STILL Not Debriefed, And PD Removes Leader Without Explanation"
On Wednesday, BBC News reported the indefensible discovery that the D.C. Capitol Polices SWAT team was ready to neutralize the Navy Yard mass shooting. But, the highly trained and heavily armed, elite tactical group was, instead, ordered to stand down and leave the scene. The Capitol Police promised a full investigation. Today, BBC News reported more disturbing information. No one has talked to the SWAT team members. Not even for the protocol debriefing. But, not only have members of the SWAT team not been contacted, the department has installed a new leader. Without explanation.
BBC News reports,
Members of a Washington DC Swat team who the BBC has learned were ordered not to respond to Mondays Navy Yard shootings have yet to be contacted by the authorities.
The Capitol Police tactical response team was told by a supervisor to leave the scene instead of aiding municipal officers, sources told the BBC.
Meanwhile, the department has installed a new leader of the elite unit. No reason has been given for the decision.
Gunman Aaron Alexis killed 12 people.
The BBC has also learned that four members of the highly trained team have applied for temporary leave, as they grapple with the aftermath of the incident.
The Capitol Police department has not yet granted the request, nor given approval for them to use their own paid time off.
Command shake-up Days after the shooting, none of the officers has been questioned by officials or investigators from a special panel that was convened on Wednesday.
Members of the Containment and Emergency Response Team (Cert) are typically debriefed right away, at the very least the following day after an incident, a Capitol Police source said.
[They] havent even been given the courtesy of a debrief They have not even been given an answer as to why the decision was made that they should not respond, the source added.
Another Capitol Police source close to the incident told the BBC: No-ones talked to these officers since this happened.
This is unreal! Did these bureaucrats take the playbook from Benghazi?
Discussion going on elsewhere on FR
I find the author’s #5 of interest. Propaganda by Example.
Did someone program the killer and then deny help from a mutual aid unit? /s
Shades of The Parallax View
Jesu. What is really creepy is that in looking around the page at Imdb, this caught my eye:
Taglines: There is no conspiracy. Just twelve people dead.
The media are state run propaganda factories. I’m assuming your question was rhetorical.
I didn’t know that liar was a profession.
Typical husseini cover-up operation.
The GOAL of Fast and Furious was to boost headlines of grisly urders:
What was THIS...?
I doubt they arranged this but it was thrown into their laps and someone treacherously smart saw its political potential.
I wonder what the time-line is. How many we’re shot at before the order to “stand down” and how many afterwards.
You’re a freaking “phonycon liberal”, if you are getting distracted by this junk the shills are pushing to distract conservatives down blind conspiracy alleys. You’ve never been, and probably never will, be able to prove any one of these theories enough to actually get anything accomplished by pursuing them. Then you have the gall to accuse others who won’t join you in fantasyland that they are phony? Give me a break.
It couldn’t just be the media rushing stories out before they actually know what is going on. Nah, the media is way too responsible and concerned with the truth to do anything like that. /s
“I doubt they arranged this but it was thrown into their laps and someone treacherously smart saw its political potential.”
No doubt. Why would any one take the risk to try to arrange anything like this anyway, with the potential blowback involved, when crazy people will just do it on their own?
Liar is the second oldest profession. I’m talking older.....
The blueprint for Bhengazi is becoming the new playbook for this tragedy as well.
And WHY NOT? Nobody even lost there job so the administration has been enboldened in their law breaking. And it takes a British paper to even tell the story. Sickening.
You got it.
Old news. Let’s move on to the next cluster ——
No one is ever held accountable, no one pushes the issue, no one does anything, no one gets fired, no changes in weapons policy on base, no nothing.
Keep moving, next.
Those of us that are up for that are getting too old to make a difference. There are many, many of us that can “contribute to the cause” but not physically be there.
The Federal govt is a terrorist organization
now run by embedded al Qaeda operatives within it
as they destroy America through fraud, perjury, and tyranny.
Hint: they tout background checks for gun ownsrs as a mean of discouragement paperwork. They do the same in the army when they dont want you to ride your bike.
But the background checks were never used for that black racist terrorist. Nd when it was applied, he went alqaeda at the Yard.
This is proof that the promise of background checks is bull sh!t to feed sheeples.
