Navy Yard killer created webpage with name “Mohammed Salem”

Authorities say they are still looking for a motive. Since Alexis carried out the attack Monday at the headquarters of the Naval Sea Systems Command, signs have emerged of a troubled history.

• Alexis, who served as a naval reservist from 2007 to 2011 and worked more recently as a civilian contractor, had a military disciplinary record that included disorderly conduct, insubordination and unexcused absences.

Newport, R.I., police said he called them Aug. 7 to say he had changed hotels twice because he believed people were chasing him and sending vibrations through the walls to keep him from sleeping.

Police said they had forwarded their report to police at the naval station in Newport. Military officials told NBC News on Wednesday that they had found no evidence that naval police forwarded the information to any higher command outside the base.

• The Department of Veterans Affairs said Wednesday that it saw Alexis twice. He went to a VA emergency room in Providence, R.I., on Aug. 23 complaining of insomnia and was given sleep medicine and told to follow up with a doctor, the agency said. Five days later, Alexis showed up at a VA emergency room in Washington to get a refill and was again encouraged to see a doctor, the VA said.

The VA said Alexis denied struggling with anxiety or depression or having thoughts about hurting himself or others. It also said he enrolled in VA health care in February 2011 and never sought an appointment for mental health.

• Alexis also had run-ins with the law over gun violence. He was accused in 2004 of having shot out the tires of a car in Seattle and in 2010 of having fired a gun into an upstairs apartment in Fort Worth, Texas.

• Friends and relatives have also said he had a preoccupation with the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, felt slighted as a veteran, had money problems and was so unhappy with his life that he considered leaving the U.S.

Law enforcement officials told NBC News that Alexis created a webpage with the name “Mohammed Salem,” but they said he never did anything with it. They said they had found nothing else that might indicate any interest in violent jihad or even in Islam.

You probably won’t hear that on that on the nightly news although you probably have heard the incorrect, and intentionally so, reports that the shooter used an AR-15. Police say he did not.

Coincidentally or not, Al-Qaeda chief called for attacks on US in 9/11 speech to followers:

In an audio message released on Friday, two days after the anniversary of September 11th, Ayman al-Zawahiri said America was not a “mythic power” and that it could be defeated even through small-scale strikes by “one brother or a few of the brothers”.

As well as mounting small, “disparate” assaults, Zawahiri urged fellow members of his extremist group to “watch and wait” and seize any opportunity to conduct a large strike against the US, similar to the 9/11 attack that killed almost 3000 people.

  1. They probably should check the local mosque(s). And they should also make sure to infiltrate them to know that they are teaching what is in the koran and sunnah. It is a big ‘duh’ for us who know what islam teaches but our politicians and police and military just can’t figure it out.

  2. Bingo CS!!!
    I knew there had to be a Sharia Islamic Muslim tie in since no one mentioned FB or twitter or Youtube.

  3. Muhammed Salem AKA Alexis, just his name conversion is enough to tell us of his motive.

  4. ONE LESS KOOK TO CONTEND WITH. NO MONEY SPENT ON A TRIAL!

  5. Our DEAR LEADER Muslim in White House is already terrorizing our economy. Be very watchful in shopping malls. Be watchful around Holloween in case terrorist use costumes to do evil.

  6. I wonder if his prescribing physician(s) even thought of this possibility.

  7. Looks like there was a little rip in his Buddhist veil.
