Pentagon Shooter and the Murder of Col. James Sabow
John Patrick Bedell must have had a lot on his mind as he went through the motions of a dead man walking. He knew this would be it; nobody opens fire near the Pentagon without falling in a hail of bullets. It must be brutal in the last seconds, to enter the very last stage of life. Surely that is what he thought, and that had to be what Marine Colonel Jim Sabow thought, as he took his last breath in 1991. This was on the mind of Bedell when he drove from Hollister, California to Washington D.C. to make his final stand. Bedell was extremely disturbed by the death of the Marine Colonel 19 years earlier, he viewed it as the final proof that the U.S. government is truly at least in part, a dirty and dishonest group.
According to today’s Wall Street Journal:
JPatrickBedell wrote that he was “determined to see that justice is served” in the death of Marine Col. James Sabow, who was found dead in the backyard of his California home in 1991. The death was ruled a suicide but the case has long been the source of theories of a cover up. Sabow’s family has maintained that he was murdered because he was about to expose covert military operations in Central America involving drug smuggling.
The Wall Street Journal also mentioned how a person using the name, “JPatrickBedell” wrote the Sabow case was “a step toward establishing the truth of events such as the September 11 demolitions.”
He also had a bit to say about the government’s enforcement of marijuana laws. He had been arrested for growing pot in Orange County back in 2006. Colonel Jim Sabow was murdered in Orange County.
