Video released of Omar Gonzalez, 42 running across the lawn, jumping a hedge and into the White House shows just how easy it was for him to gain access.
Gonzalez is an Iraq war vet who suffers from PTSD and is taking his prescribed medication. Veterans often report those meds as leading to bizarre thoughts and behavior and actually make things worse.
He is reported as being “armed” with a three inch pocket knife. That’s hardly the weapon of choice for a homicide attack on the “president” and something he reportedly carries with him wherever he goes. Lots of people used to carry small knives, before America began its move towards limp-wristed unisex liberalism. They are very useful. There is nothing odd or inherently dangerous about carrying one.
Perhaps Gonzalez has become frustrated as an ignored and cast out Iraq War veteran. He’s reportedly been living in his vehicle for a couple of years. Watching a socialist community organizer know-nothing destroy the country that he fought to protect might have become too much for him and sent him over the edge.
He may have had a message for Hussein Obama and felt for some unknown reason that Obama would listen to him. Obama only listens to his core insiders, he ignores everybody, especially the military and veterans. Unless Gonzales is a homosexual, a traitor or a Muslim, which he is not, Obama would never allow him to speak to him, let alone actually listen to what he has to say. All Gonzales managed to accomplish was getting himself locked up.
This breach could prove to have been a blessing to the secret service as it exposed what was an obvious security weakness with no loss of life. If a similar action had been attempted by a group of terrorists who had planned things out and had timed them appropriately, things could have been very bad.
Jerry Murphy, Gonzalez’s former stepson says that Gonzalez has quite a few weapons of various types and knows how to use them and remarked, “If he had wanted to do some damage he could have.” He is likely just a veteran in need of treatment.
Hussein Obama had already left the property before Gonzalez stormed the grounds. Perhaps there is a protocol that prohibits more than one illegal intruder in the White House at a time.
