TUCSON SHERIFF BLOWS LID OFF COVERT 'LONE-WOLF' TERRORIST SCHEME?
GET POLITICAL w/ VIC LIVINGSTON
Will Pima County, AZ Sheriff Clarence Dupnik go down in American history as the lawman who blew the lid off a covert government-funded torture matrix that advances an extreme right-wing agenda by inducing unstable "Manchurian candidates" to carry out acts of supposed "lone wolf" violence?
The horrific shootings of Arizona U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D) and nineteen others, which left six dead, appeared to be following the old, familiar "round up the usual suspects" script (think "Virginia Tech," "Fort Hood," "Discovery Channel" gunmen).
Soon after the shooting, reports began to circulate that the gunman, apprehended at the scene unharmed, was a "lone wolf" radical, who posted inchoate anti-government rants on various internet sites. Pictures and other descriptive information about 22-year-old Jared Lee Loughner of Tuscon popped up on the news channels well before the official release of his identity.
But then the 75-year-old Sheriff Dupnik apparently went off-script with an ad lib that could signal the beginning of the end of one of the most pervasive, insidious cover-ups in American history...
...what this veteran reporter believes is the unspoken knowledge among some conscientious, ethical law enforcement that a top-secret nationwide multi-agency government-funded program has employed little-known high tech tactics and methods to entrain selected "targeted individuals" to commit carefully choreographed public acts of violence.
The apparent motive and rationale: to justify huge expenditures for homeland security and draconian legislation that has the effect of restricting the civil liberties of those politically opposed to police state tyranny.
"We are not convinced he acted alone," Dupnik said at a press conference, referring to the 22-year-old suspect in custody. "There is some reason to believe he came to this location with another individual.
Dupnik went on to reveal that authorities have a photograph of a man in his 50s whom he identified as a "person of interest." That photo later was released to the public.
"We have an individual we are actively in pursuit of, but I cannot tell you who he is at this point," the sheriff said.
You could feel the jaws drop among other law enforcement officials in the room. This is not the way these events are supposed to unfold. It appeared to me that Dupnik let one very big cat out of the bag, on live TV. What Dupnik appeared to be saying was that shootings involved a conspiracy -- and don't let anyone try to convince the public otherwise with some prefabricated "lone wolf" narrative.
Late Sunday morning, NBC News correspondent Pete Williams, a former U.S. defense department spokesman with an inside line to the thinking of federal authorities, reported that some law enforcement officials were questioning whether the person of interest had anything to do with the suspect -- possible push-back from Dupnik's pronouncements. Then, at an early Sunday afternoon press conference, Sheriff Dupnik himself appeared to back-pedal, saying that "based on information developed since (yesterday), it would appear to us that the person may not have been involved at all" -- but he quickly added that authorities must locate and interrogate the individual to determine whether that supposition is true.
Moments earlier at that Sunday presser, FBI Director Robert Mueller also referenced the need to talk to the person of interest, but did not speculate as to whether authorities now believe the second individual had no involvement in the shootings.
UPDATE: Later Sunday afternoon, the Pima county sheriff's office told reporters that the "person of interest" has been interviewed and cleared of involvement in the attempted assassination of Rep. Giffords. But a spokesman said the office was not prepared to say whether authorities are convinced that the gunman acted alone.
At that initial press conference on Saturday, the day of the shootings, Dupnik issued a bold condemnation of media pundits on radio and TV who punctuate their polemics with incendiary rhetoric.
"We need to do some soul searching," Dupnik told reporters. "It's the vitriolic rhetoric that we hear day in and day out from people in the radio business and some people in the TV business.
"When you look at unbalanced people, how they respond to the vitriol that comes out of certain mouths about tearing down the government, the anger, the hatred, the bigotry that goes on in this county is getting to be outrageous. Unfortunately, Arizona, I think, has become sort of the capital," Dupnik continued.
"We have become the mecca for prejudice and bigotry. It’s not unusual for all public officials to get threats constantly, myself included. And that‘s the sad thing of what’s going on in America. Pretty soon, we’re not going to be able to find reasonable, decent people who are willing to subject themselves to serve in public office.”
Moments later, Dupnik yielded the podium to the FBI special agent in charge of the Tucson, AZ office, Nathan Gray. The G-man said nothing about a second suspect, and not a single reporter pressed him on that point during the Q and A -- clearly, the most stunning revelation to come out of the press conference.
Suspect Loughner was "known to law enforcement," officials said -- a statement that echoes what was said about the Virginia Tech and Discovery Channel shooters. His YouTube videos...
...referenced "mind control" and "brainwashing." I would not be surprised if Loughner was targeted for silent attack by the U.S. government's nationwide cell tower- mounted microwave radio frequency directed energy weapon system, which can induce cognitive impairment and subjugation as it dispenses silent electromagnetic torture.
Media commentators interpret Loughner's references to mind control as evidence of mental instability. That may be true; but such references also could indicate that Loughner was aware of extreme techniques of behavioral persuasion, and, like most "targets," could not prevent himself from falling under the influence, becoming yet another "Manchurian Candidate" -- a flawed young man victimized by his own infirmities, and by a heinous covert government-funded program.
