Wisconsin Shooting suspect was US army psy-ops specialist: Pentagon
August 06, 2012
The gunman suspected of attacking a Sikh temple in Wisconsin and killing six people was a former US Army “psychological operations specialist,” the Pentagon said Monday.
Wade Michael Page, who was himself shot dead by police during the incident, was a 40-year-old who had served between April 1992 and October 1998, ending his career at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
He received his basic training in Fort Sill, Oklahoma before being moved to Fort Bliss in Texas. Fort Bragg, where he finished his career, is home to many of the US Army’s airborne units and its Special Operations Command.
According to the Pentagon, Page was a qualified parachutist who received a commendation medal, five achievement medals, two good conduct medals, the National Defense Service Medal and a Humanitarian Service Medal.
But he left with the relatively junior enlisted rank of Specialist E-4.
OAK CREEK, Wis. (CBSDC/AP) — Authorities tell CBS News that the shooter behind the deadly massacre at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin Sunday has been identified as 40-year-old Wade Michael Page.
Page previously served in the U.S. military, but was no longer on active duty, sources tell CBS News.
CBS News reports that Page enlisted in the Army in April 1992 and was given a less-than-honorable discharge in October 1998. He was last stationed in Fort Bragg, N.C., serving in the psychological operations unit.
SO…WAS PAGE A “WHITE SUPREMACIST” PUNK ROCKER…. OR AN INFILTRATOR PAID AND GUIDED BY THE MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX AND THE FBI? ….. Made to order.
