Pentagon Shooter Was a Truther, Stoner, Three-Namer, Good Dresser


The man who opened fire on Pentagon security guards last night has died of his wounds, but he has, of course, left behind a trail of anti-government posts on the Internet. John Patrick Bedell believed there was a conspiracy behind 9/11 and “railed against the government’s enforcement of marijuana laws,” which affected him personally when he was arrested for growing weed at home in 2006. Bedell was also well-educated, well-dressed, and seemed “like a normal young man,” according to a neighbor of Bedell’s parents. Isn’t that what they always say, though? [MSNBC]
