John Patrick Bedell was very unhappy with the government. Because he was unhappy with the government, he drove from California to Washington, DC with two 9-mm handguns and opened fire on Pentagon security guards.In the ensuing fire fight, Bedell was shot in the head and killed. Officials today are saying he acted alone and was not connected to any terrorist plot

Police are looking at possible anti-government Internet postings by Bedell, Keevill said, and still trying to establish his motive for the attack at a doorway to the nation's defense headquarters — one of the busiest, most prominent and closely guarded buildings in the Washington area.

"There are no indications at this point that there are any international or domestic connections to this incident at all," Keevill said. "At this time it appears to be a single individual that had issues."

No one else was injured in the incident, which police said unfolded in less than a minute.


Real question: Can single individuals with issues terrorize?
