Unqualified Offerings is the place to go for 24/7 DC sniper updates, as InstaGlenn has pointed out. We learned today that the super witness report from the last shooting was a lie.

Next topic: does the media still suck? Answer: yes. Here is WTOP on the weapon issue:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Moose said the witness' description to police of the shooter's AK-74 assault rifle is also bogus. But investigators cautioned that they still believe the sniper is using one of a family of more than 30 similar assault-type weapons capable of firing a .223-caliber bullet.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Did you get that? "Assault-type weapons?" Recall that Unqualified Offerings provided you with a link to the afternoon press conference? The ATF stressed that the "30 similar weapons" included everything from semi-automatic military arms to "bolt-action rifles." Varmint guns, people. He/they could be using varmint guns.


UPDATE: Unqualified Offerings points to The Road to Surfdom, a liberal blogger, for some more sniper observations.
