Marine Corps Reserve Corporal Arrested in Pentagon Bomb Scare
A Marine Corps Reserve lance corporal who was carrying suspected bomb making materials and pro-al Qaeda literature was arrested in Arlington National Cemetery early this morning, triggering a bomb scare that snarled Washington’s morning rush hour. The FBI, however, determined that the material in the man’s backpack was harmless.
“There was not a device and the products found are determined right now to be inert,” said Brenda Heck, special agent in charge of counterterrorism for the FBI.
The material in the suspect’s backpack tested negative as a potential explosive, sources said.
Sources told ABC News earlier that the backpack contained what was believed to be ammonium nitrate and spent ammunition for an automatic weapon. The material was reportedly contained in four large ziplock type bags.
Sources also said there were pro-al Qaeda statements found in a notebook that contained mostly notes for a financial class. There was also was a page containing words “al qaeda,” “Taliban rules,” “mujahidin” and “defeated coalition forces.” – ABC NEWS June 17, 2011
A couple Pentagon images from the collective conscious….
Let’s have a look at some other events that occurred on June 17th….
- 1972 –Watergate scandal: five White House operatives are arrested for burglarizing the offices of the Democratic National Committee, in an attempt by some members of the Republican party to illegally wiretap the opposition.
- 1971 – President Richard Nixon declares the U.S. War on Drugs.
The beginning of one scandal and the end of another.
6 + 1 + 7 + 2 + 1 + 1 = 18
1 + 8 = 9
Numerologically speaking, the number nine is the transition number. It is the last period of work before the end and starting over.
Does the bomb scare at the Pentagon signify the end of the infamous terrorist threat we have all been conditioned to? Are we transitioning into a new threat paradigm?
