Government Does Not Respond to Questions about Bomb Threat at Walter Reed Medical Center

WHERE IS THE INVESTIGATION?

Who called in the bomb threat to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center last Wednesday, and why is the media not investigating?

(Aug. 12, 2012) — A bomb threat called in to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC), formerly Walter Reed Army Medical Center, closed and evacuated Building #19 at the center on Wednesday, August 8.

Although Public Affairs spokesman Joe Macri gave a statement to the press, he did not return a call to The Post & Email for comment as to whether or not an FBI investigation had been initiated into the incident.

Reuters and Associated Press reports disseminated to various news outlets simply stated that “No information was available about the person who called in the threat,” which stated that a bomb would detonate at 10:00 a.m. that day.

After the building was “swept” for suspicious devices and materials, the “all-clear” was given at approximately 12;30 p.m., closing the building for three hours.  None of the available news reports raised the issue of an investigation.

Walter Reed Army Medical Center officially closed in 2011 when it merged with two other hospitals and moved its facilities to Bethesda, MD.  Building 19 is named “the America Building.”

Is it possible that the authorities already know who called in the threat?
