"The Naval Sea Systems Command's headquarters is the work place for about 3,000 people. The organization is comprised of command staff, headquarters directorates, affiliated Program Executive Offices (PEOs) and numerous field activities. Together, we engineer, build, buy and maintain ships, submarines and combat systems that meet the Fleet's current and future operational requirements. Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) is the largest of the Navy's five system commands. With a fiscal year budget of nearly $30 billion, NAVSEA accounts for one quarter of the Navy's entire budget. With a force of 60,000 civilian, military and contract support personnel, NAVSEA engineers, builds, buys and maintains the Navy's ships and submarines and their combat systems."

Another dead 'suspect' the state is recreating to suit its geopolitical interests
Alexis worked for HP subcontractor
The deceased shooter worked for a subcontractor of technology giant Hewlett-Packard, the company confirmed Monday evening to The Washington Post’s Marjorie Censer. Michael Thacker, director of corporate media relations for Hewlett-Packard, issued the following statement: “We are deeply saddened by today’s tragic events at the Washington Navy Yard. Our thoughts and sympathies are with all those who have been affected. Aaron Alexis was an employee of a company called ‘The Experts,’ a subcontractor to an HP Enterprise Services contract to refresh equipment used on the Navy Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI) network.... The Experts, told Reuters it enlisted a service to perform two background checks on him over the last year:
"The latest background check and security clearance confirmation were in late June of 2013 and revealed no issues other than one minor traffic violation," The Experts, an information technology company, said in a statement. The Experts said it had twice confirmed Alexis' "secret"-level security clearance with the U.S. Defense Department.

We are confronting yet another mass shooting today at another military installation, in our nation's capital. They know the dangers of serving abroad, but today they face the unimaginable violence they wouldn't have expected here at home, The Washington shooting happened less than three weeks after U.S. Army psychiatrist Major Nidal Hasan was sentenced to death for murdering 13 people in 2009 at Fort Hood, Texas, where he gunned down unarmed soldiers in what he called retaliation for U.S. wars in Muslim countries...The former US army psychiatrist who twice dismissed his lawyers to represent himself suggested he wanted to argue the killings were in "defence of others'' - namely- Taliban fighting American"occupiers" in Afghanistan....trial judge, Colonel Osborn has so far denied that strategy...the attack occurred in a building where hundreds of unarmed soldiers about to deploy to Afghanistan waited....
Military law prohibits him from entering a guilty plea because authorities are seeking the death penalty...8/6/13

Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Jonathan Greenert, Chief of Naval Operations, Ray Mabus, Secretary of the Navy, and Adm.

Navy Yard: SWAT team 'stood down' and ordered from mass shooting scene
9/18/ By Debbie Siegelbaum BBC News, Washington updated at 14:37 http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/24153252
One of the first teams of heavily armed police to respond to Monday's shooting in Washington DC was ordered to stand down by superiors, the BBC can reveal. A tactical response team of the Capitol Police, a force that guards the US Capitol complex, was told to leave the scene...Multiple sources in the Capitol Police department have told the BBC that its highly trained and heavily armed four-man Containment and Emergency Response Team (Cert) was near the Navy Yard when the initial report of an active shooter came in about 8:20 local time.The officers, wearing full tactical gear and armed with HK-416 assault weapons, arrived outside Building 197 a few minutes later, an official with knowledge of the incident told the BBC.
According to a Capitol Police source, an officer with the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD), Washington DC's main municipal force, told the Capitol Cert officers they were the only police on the site equipped with long guns and requested their help stopping the gunman.When the Capitol Police team radioed their superiors, they were told by a watch commander to leave the scene, the BBC was told.The gunman, Aaron Alexis, was reported killed after 9:00.Several Capitol Police sources who spoke to the BBC asked to remain anonymous for fear of reprisal.
Capitol Police Officer Jim Konczos, who leads the officers' union, said the Cert police train for what are known as active shooter situations and are expert marksmen."Odds are it might have had a different outcome," he said of Monday's shooting and the decision to order the Cert unit to stand down. "It probably could have been neutralised."...
Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Terry Gainer, who oversees the Capitol Police department, confirmed officials were pulling radio logs from Monday's incident and interviewing the officers involved.
"It's a very serious allegation and inference to indicate that we were on scene and could have helped and were told to leave," he said. "It crushes me if that's the case."...
A spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Police Department said allegations a Capitol Police Cert team was on scene and stood down were "not true"....

Dave Sarr, an environmental engineer, was walking down a nearby street when he saw people running from the Navy Yard. Sarr had seen an evacuation drill a few days earlier at the Navy Yard. "At first I thought it was another drill. Then I saw an officer with his weapon drawn".

Exercise Citadel Shield, security drill to deal with a rampage at all US naval installations
‘You train like you fight and fight like you train.'
8/21/13 http://www.ocregister.com/articles/base-497425-shooter-security.html
The rules were simple: Security officers at the Naval Weapons Station in Seal Beach were to enter the building, find the shooter and neutralize him. Tend to the victims after..As part of the Navy’s weeklong training, Exercise Citadel Shield, undertaken by every base in the continental United States, the Seal Base naval station performed an “active shooter response” exercise on Tuesday in which base security personnel responded to a call of someone going on a rampage. Military bases conduct all sorts of security exercises year-round. But active shooter simulations have become particularly with the country coping with a series of mass shootings in Newtown, Conn.; Aurora, Colo.; and, more acutely for those in the military, such as Fort Hood...The operation was as realistic as possible. Personnel who responded were actually patrolling the base when they received the call. They raced to the building under mock siege and prepared to enter..."I survived," said Mercedes Mendoza, a civilian who works on the base, one of three people pretending to be caught in the building."There are preplanned responses they need to follow," said Lt. Chris Ambrosi, head of security for the Naval Weapons Station, noting that the officers, though aware it was an exercise, had to approach the simulation as if it were real. "You train like you fight and fight like you train."...

False Flag Prospects
by Captain Eric H. May
2/23/2008 http://thirdworldtraveler.com/Global_Secrets_Lies/False_Flag_Prospects_2...
The easiest way to carry out a false flag attack is by setting up a military exercise that simulates the very attack you want to carry out. As I'll detail below, this is exactly how government perpetrators in the US and UK handled the 9/11 and 7/7 "terror" attacks, which were, in reality government attacks blamed on "terrorists."...My aim, as a former military intelligence officer who spent five years with the U.S. Army 75th Division conducting military war games, is to convince people that the "next 9/11" is likely to be carried out under the guise of future military exercises. If the American people are aware of pending exercises and the danger they represent, the exercises cannot "go live" and effect the very terror events they are supposed to be rehearsing against.

Washington Navy Yard shootings horror: Ghosts of Boston as 13 people killed in rampage
9/16 http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/washington-navy-yard-shootings-h...
Authorities said one of the gunmen had been killed. They named him tonight as Aaron Alexis, 34, believed to have been identified by fingerprints after police shot him dead when he barricaded himself inside a room in an office block at the complex. It was believed he may have feared got into the navy centre using another worker’s identity card. Authorities earlier had identified the dead shooter as a navy employee whose “work status had changed” recently. This suggested the motive was job-related but police refused to ruled out it may have been an act of terrorism. The other suspect was described as being an African-American in his 40s or 50s who had been dressed in military fatigues and armed with an AR-15 assault rifle.

8:15 am DC police receive call about shooting at Washington Navy Yard BREAKING: One shooter dead... searching for two other suspected shooters., one white the other black..
"No reason to believe the suspects are military personnel but we do believe they are wearing military-style uniforms".

This image released by the FBI shows a photo of Aaron Alexis, who police believe was a gunman at the Washington Navy Yard shooting in Washington, D.C. Sept. 16, 2013.
Authorities say Aaron Alexis sought mental health treatment at VA hospital in Washington. Monday's incident is the latest in a rash of deadly mass shootings in the US. President Obama called for Congress to approve new gun control measures to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill.

Washington police chief, Cathy Lanier said one shooter had been killed and that two other suspects - a white and a black male - were still at large.The dead suspect was identified by the FBI as Aaron Alexis of Fort Worth, Texas. Lanier told reporters that Alexis "was engaged in shooting with police officers" when he died.
9/16 http://www.aljazeera.com/news/americas/2013/09/201391613153627767.html

NPR reports that law enforcement officials believe Alexis gained access to the secure military facility by using the ID of "a 50-odd year-old African American man who was recently dismissed from his job at the Navy Yard." Alexis, however, was also working as for an IT company that was upgrading the Navy's computer system.D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said it's still unclear how Alexis died, but he was involved in gun battles with active shooter teams inside building 197 of the Washington Navy Yard... police had "multiple engagements with the suspect" and it was after one of those that Alexis was found dead.

"it's unclear how he got the shotgun past security"

"Alexis had the proper credentials to get into the Navy Yard to work Washington mayor Gray said, but it was unclear how he got the shotgun past security...Obama pushed for universal background checks and other directives after the the Newtown, Connecticut, shootings, to cut down the access Americans have to firearms, but they never gained traction. At the state level, a similar story. Successful recall elections last week of two Colorado lawmakers who backed new gun restrictions sent a shiver through the gun control lobby.

Alexis opened fire Monday on employees of the Naval Sea Systems Command, using a shotgun and a handgun. Authorities say earlier reports he had an assault style rifle were incorrect...also the Navy corrected its previous account of the circumstances under which Alexis left the service. He received an honorable discharge, effective Jan. 31, 2011.Monday, the Navy mistakenly said he received a less - desirable general discharge...Alexis applied to leave the Navy early 2011 with an honorable discharge, which was granted the official said...

Propaganda techniques:
Disinformation... traditional propaganda techniques are designed to engage emotional support, disinformation is designed to manipulate the audience at the rational level by either discrediting conflicting information or supporting false conclusions. A common disinformation tactic is to mix some truth with false conclusions and lies, or to reveal a part of the truth while presenting it as the whole (limited hangout). Another technique of concealing facts, or censorship is also used if the group can effect such control: channels of information which cannot be completely closed can be rendered useless by filling them with disinformation, effectively lowering their signal-to-noise ratio and discrediting the opposition by association with many easily disproved false claims... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disinformation

Perception management includes all actions used to influence the attitudes and objective reasoning of audiences, consists of Public Diplomacy, Psychological Operations (PSYOPS), Public Information, Deception and Covert Action.[17] The Department of Defense describes "perception management" as a type of psychological operation..."The DoD, conscious of an increasingly widespread public perception the U.S. military is becoming brutalized by the campaign in Iraq...identified the information domain as its new 'asymmetric flank.'

‘Disposition Matrix' : President's kill list
10/24/12 http://tv.msnbc.com/author/resnikoff/
The matrix contains the names of terrorism suspects arrayed against an accounting of the resources being marshaled to track them down, including sealed indictments and clandestine operations. U.S. officials said the database is designed to go beyond existing kill lists, mapping plans for the “disposition” of suspects beyond the reach of American drones... Privately, officials acknowledge the matrix is part of a series of moves to embed counterterrorism (CT) tools into U.S. policy for the long haul. White House CT adviser John O. Brennan seeks to codify the administration’s Matrix approach, part of a broader effort to guide future administrations through the CT processes Obama has embraced.... there is a broad consensus among senioe administration officials that such operations are likely to be extended at least another decade....one senior official said “We can’t possibly kill everyone who wants to harm us. It’s a necessary part of what we do...We’re not going to wind up in 10 years in a world of everybody holding hands and saying, ‘We love America’ ” ...
