    "Weekly Standard may have been shooter target

    FBI agents visited the offices of the conservative Weekly Standard magazine yesterday after a shooting at the Holocaust Memorial Museum and told employees they'd found the magazine's address

    A senior Standard staffer confirmed the visit but declined to discuss it in detail. An FBI spokeswoman, Katherine Schweit , also declined to comment on the investigation.

    Two other sources said two FBI agents arrived shortly after 5:00 p.m. Thursday at the 17th Street offices of the magazine. They told staffers that they had found the address of the magazine on a piece of paper associated with the shooter, James von Brunn, and asked whether the Standard had received any threats."

    He was targeting consevatives? What? Thats wasn't supposed to happen. It looks like all the reporting for the last 24 hours has been completely turned upside down. What else is new?
  2. Also the murderer of Dr. Tiller had the "Operation Rescue" phone number on his dashboard, so correspondingly they must have been a target.
  3. Really, did the FBI go to see if they recieved any threats?
  4. The FBI did visit them, and discovered that they had been giving the killer Tiller's location and detailed court information on a regular basis.

    But sure, they could have been a target.
