I was listening to a news briefing this afternoon on my Amazon Echo (because you know, I HAVE to keep up on the latest technological trends LOL), and heard about the mass shooting in Ft. Lauderdale. The gunman? One of our own. As if it’s not bad enough that we have to worry about threats from outside sources, now we have to worry about our own military?
The way I heard it, he was in the Alaskan National Guard. He claims that he had been bombarded by so much ISIS/Islamic propaganda lately, that he snapped. This concerns me on a few levels. One being that our Veterans (no matter what branch or where they served) are not getting the care they need, which we already knew. The other being that our enemies have found a way to use our own military against us using psychological warfare.
Before we go any further on this, I AM going to add the disclaimer in here that this is a piece based SOLELY on MY opinion, and not necessarily on fact, so if anyone has anything to add in the comment section, please feel free to do so. I am not in the business of giving misinformation and am writing this as I am slowly piecing together the information I have gotten today. I have been away from any television and other news sources, having been out and about all day.
