| Conspiracy theories bore me

|Like many shocked and horrified
Americans, I watched events unfolding in real time.
There were, from the
very first, three shooters. Eyewitnesses, police scanner broadcasts,
news reports all said the same thing.
One eyewitness, Sara Abdelmageed, gave extensive detail
to Scott Pelley on the CBS Evening News. Here’s the exchange:
shots fired and it was from — you know — an automatic weapon,”
Abdelmageed said, “we looked out the window a second set of shots goes
off…and we saw a man fall to the floor. Then we just looked and we saw
three men dressed in all black, military attire, with vests on. They
were holding assault rifles.
As soon as they opened up the doors to
building three one of them started to shoot into the room.” Abdelmageed said that she “couldn’t see a
face, he had a black hat on — black cargo pants, the kind with the big
puffy pockets on the side, long sleeve shirt, gloves, huge assault rifle
six magazines I just saw three dressed exactly the same.”
Pelley asked her: “You are certain you saw three men?” Abdelmageed
answered: “Yes. It looked like their skin color was white. They look
like they were athletic build and they appeared to be tall.” Another eyewitness, Juan Hernandez, saw the same thing: three men. He said the shooters were “three white men in military fatigues” who “took off” in a “black Impala or SUV.”
And then suddenly, the third man disappeared. No media reports mention him anymore. No law enforcement officials appear to be searching for him. He is gone without a trace, and no one has even noticed that he is missing, or was ever there in the first place.
The vanishing of this third man recalls the disappearance of the third man who was involved in the Oklahoma Federal building bombing with Timothy McVeigh. Jayna Davis of KFOR-TV in Oklahoma City reported on an FBI alert for “Middle Eastern-looking” suspects – an alert that was later canceled.
