Would not surprise me. With the start of the Muslim Ramadam, plus what took place a few days ago in Bulgeria against a number of Israelis youths, in other words, could this be Iran’s way of declaring war against the USA/Israel/the west.

The graphic of the news report also mentions something about “the other shooter” with no further identifying information. Sounds like there were two?

FBI, via CBS reporter, Pete Williams:

Perp had on him 2 long guns, hand gun
Tennessee license plates on his car, but he was living in the Aurora area

Not releasing name until the name perp gave if verified.

There’s something a little weird about the killed/wounded ratio: in any large-scale gun violence it’s usually about 1:4, not 1:1.4 as here. Could there be some factor in play that hasn’t been reported yet?

Theater was packed and only 1 exit. That is why.

They have information out the yen-yang on this situation and people out here are being kept in the dark. One has to wonder why. This information should be released. I call BS on lone wolf involved. This was too well planned for a lone wolf. Why does the media not release what is known?

101st . ."Now saying ‘James Holmes”, age 24"
An earlier comment identifed the shooter thusly:
The captured shooter has been identified as Mohammad Alam, an Iranian immigrant. The identity of the other shooter is still unknown, Oates states. (KUSA-TV © 2012 Multimedia Holdings Corporation) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8t6mSSI3vxM
It's early and details aren't clear, yet I cannot dismiss the link to the start of Ramadan, the auto tags from TN, and the coincidence that the Bulgarian jihadi also carried a Michigan drivers license listing his identity as "Jacque Felipe Martin w/a Baton Rouge, LA address while several reports link him to Hezb'allah.

Soon they try to connect him with a milita group. Next will be the tea party movement. The Conservative movement. And if all else fails, a White Supremacists group. See how easy it is to follow the thinking of the msm.

But as far as him being White eliminates the ROP angle, that don't cut no ice at all. I saw what they said was surveillance tape of the woman who they said planted the bomb on the bus full of Israelis. She was White as could be. I suspect that very soon, if they are not already doing it, that the ROP will start using operatives with Caucasian features and giving them ordinary sounding "American" names such as Smith, Jones,Johnson, etal.

I suppose that the bottom line to what I was saying [typing] is that one cannot trust the msm or the Governmental officials to put the truth out. One has to read what information they release, then apply one's personal knowledge of past and present m.o.s and then pick the pepper from the fly specks.

Reporters on KUSA and CBSDenver are reporting questioningly the FBI’s assertion that this is a ‘no terrorism’ event.

FBI/Police report singular perp.

Both stations raise the question: Who opened the theater door to allow the perp in then? Perp was armed with 3 weapons and tear gas canisters. Perp came in through EXIT door behind movie screen.

More than a little puzzling that a “James Holmes” would shoot up a movie theater at the beginning of Ramadan. It’s also a little puzzling why they would release the movie at the beginning of Ramadan.

Thus far we know Tenn. tags on vehicle. Have a name of James Holmes. Report of residence of perp was in southern California. There has to be more info out there, doesn't there? Am growing frustrated. There is so much info being held close to the vest on this. Also hearing a report of perp being let into the theater from inside the theater by person who may have been named.

CBSDenver showing live stream of police entering the perp’s apartment via an outside window, 2nd story.

http://denver.cbslocal.com/live-video/

Earlier reports indicated that perp might have booby-trapped his apartment and he may have had explosives in his apartment, so the window entry is a security precaution.

This is the only white guy in the region named James Holmes on Facebook (listed as “Denver”).

https://www.facebook.com/james.holmes.7712

The only James Holmes listed under “aurora” is black. Not saying this is him, but it is possible.

Early comments stated the suspects car had tags from TN. Why would TN tags raise red flags? Holder ordered the town to step down and allow the Murfreesboro TN mega-mosque under construction (illegally) to open for Ramadan which begins today. Aurora, CO is also the home of the Zazi terrorist.

I saw his profile on another thread. He’s more of a motivational coach/body builder. Seems to be more of an inspiring go-getter than a terrorist. I don’t think it’s him, at least I hope not.

My post was poorly wordrd. I don’t think it was the black guy, but it might be the white guy in my link. He does appear to be in his mid twenties, but also shows him to be in a relationship with a lovely young lady so who knows (doesn’t appear to be a loner).
