This is the more credible "Ramboesque" image that can be used to help tar "birthers," racialists, and other dissidents. (Right) A more current photo of von Brunn in his late '80's.

Holocaust Museum Shooting
May Be a False Flag

Capt. Eric H. May

James Von Brunn just may be an innocent man, and all Americans should remember that. Regardless of how we view his politics and personality, he is entitled to the presumption of innocence until convicted in a court of law before a jury of his peers.
Further, today's shootings at the DC Holocaust Museum bear some of the classic earmarks of a false flag operation. On 9/11 we saw US media fabricate a fairy tale of 19 Arab hijackers who brought down three World Trade Center buildings with two airplane strikes, and left a string of incompetent clues so ham-handed that they looked planted -- and they were.
To learn the truth we learn to take our time, and look at several sources to compare contradictions.
Consider this article from the BBC about the shootings, and pay close attention to the remarks of the female witness who says that there was a sound before JVB entered the building.

"Shooting at US Holocaust Museum"
(Version 14 retitled: "US Holocaust museum guard killed")
Versions 1-13 of this story that appeared on 10 June are available at:

[Editor's Note: Subsequent versions beginning with 14 have excluded the following information from version 13:]

One eyewitness, 22-year-old Angela Andelson, told AFP news agency she heard a loud bang "like someone had dropped something".
"And I see all these security guards kind of like ducking. I kind of glanced again and saw a gunman coming in... a long-looking kind of gun. I just ran in to one of the exhibits to try to take cover."

This incident will probably be a bonanza for thought control advocates. The Huffington Post has already tied JVB to the birther movement:

"James Von Brunn Apparently Part of `Birther' Movement"

America First Books archived version here.

Also check out the NBC article from this afternoon, which curiously places former Secretary of Defense William Cohen near to the action, states that the weapon allegedly used by a JVB was a shotgun (not a rifle), and adds that he wore a Confederate hat (a detail I see nowhere else):

"Hatemonger Guns down Guard at the Holocaust Museum"

[Editor's Note: The phrase "confederate cap" in the 10 June version got edited out in the 11 June update, whose title also got changed to "Slain Museum Guard's Kindness Repaid With Bullet" while keeping the same URL. America First Books has archived the original 10 June version as page 1 and page 2.]
Mind you, I'm not asserting that this is a false flag operation, but neither am I discounting the possibility. I exhort Internet researchers to look into this carefully, and publish results. I shall be especially interested in videotaped evidence from the museum's camera system -- or will those photos, like the Pentagon impact photos of 9/11, be sequestered?
...Which reminds me that there is something important that June 10, 2009 shares in common with September 11, 2001 -- there were military exercises going on in the nation's capital on both occasions. In fact, today's NORAD exercises were announced Saturday and only occurred from 11-2:00PM --perfect timing for the JVB incident.

20090611 James von Brunn vs. Capt. Eric H. May on Race and the Jews by Maj. William Fox. Capt. May is not afraid to explore a possible "sane" state of mind of a man totally demonized by national media in the Holocaust Museum shooting affair, who may in fact be the subject of a "soft" false flag operation.
20090612 Braving the Guilt By Association Gambit--In Order to Conduct Real Research by Maj. William Fox. There are quite a few anomalies not reported by national media, for example, an eyewitness statement reported by CNN that the security guard allegedly killed by von Brunn was in fact killed by the "friendly fire" of a fellow security guard. This article also contains more update references, picking up where this list leaves off.
