    Congressmen: SWAT told to 'stand down' at Navy yard

    I hope a full investigation will be launched into this incident.


    A congressman has confirmed a “stand down” order was given to a rescue team that could have responded almost immediately to the shooter running amok at the Washington Navy Yard more than a week ago.

    In an interview with Jake Tapper of CNN, Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, said his information came from a member of the rescue team.

    Ugh, WND? That site is just brutal with the pop-up ads ... pop-up blocker at work doesn't catch half of them.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Yes, lets spend oodles of time asking why the Capitol Police eat breakfast. I mean, who really wants to know the answers to important questions like why the loon was given security clearance to enter this facility.

    Why do you think they were told to stand down?

    Well I mean either this SWAT team member told the congressmen this or not.

    In the heat of crisis, I tend to give the in-the-field decision makers the benefit of the doubt. IIRC, there were early reports that a gunman was "down." If that information had been relayed to a SWAT team leader, the "stand down" order might seem to make sense.

    If the team leader received a false report, we need to find out why he received a false report and attempt to prevent the same situation in the future.
