FK Library ✔ @JFKLibrary

Fire in building is out, appears to have started in the mechanical room of new building. All staff and visitors are accounted for and safe.

Thanks Trixie.

I spent the morning filling out new hire forms for my new job and only turned on the tv a little while ago. I can't even begin to imagine the fear and chaos of that kind of situation. I don't tear up easily, but I did over some of the images...esp that guy with his leg gone. I hope they can find and capture these bastards quickly. My heart and thoughts go out to those caught in this tragedy.

Seems everyone is going for foreign terrorists....no thoughts to home grown talent...

Very sure it's home grown according to my readings by people that work closely in terrorists intelligence.

Has to many home grown hallmarks.

Having said that a Saudi national has been arrested.

The police have said they don't know if the Library fire is connected, but they will treat it like it is until they have further evidence.

It was reported on Fox News....obviously "reported" and accurate can be two different things.

I'd be surprised to hear it was foreign terrorists. The day, the time, the place, all point to morons educated from American history textbooks and indoctrinated with libertarian-anarchist scare memes. I've seen it coming for a long time, super-"patriotic" scum who think it's time to "make a stand". The only thing that surprises me is that they didn't buy advertising.

My gut feeling is that it will turn out to be domestic. If there were several devices I don't know whether this would make it less likely to be a lone nutjob, although that guy in Oslo had a reasonably sophisticated plan.

what a world we live in. :frown:

I can't find the report again to provide a source, but I saw that 15 of the injured are believed to be children.

It is never nice to hear of people being hurt, but it haunts me when it is kids.
