Aaron Alexis, the alleged Navy Yard shooter, originally hailed from Queens. He spent some time in Seattle.
But the BBC and NPR referred to him as a “Texan”. And CNN went one further, calling him a Texan and a military contractor, for the lefty narrative bifecta.
(He was a “military contractor”, inasmuch as he was working for a firm that was subcontracting with Hewlett-Packard…to work on the Navy’s intranet. Think Blackwater, only for networking geeks).
The narrative, above all, must be served.
