Navy Shipyard Shooter Created Website With Name "Mohammed Salem"


It has been reported that Aaron Alexis, the Navy Yard Shooter, had created a webpage under the name of Mohammed Salem.
Buried in a report by NBC News entitled "Navy Yard gunman's mother says she is heartbroken and sorry for families" was this little nugget:

Law enforcement officials told NBC News that Alexis created a webpage with the name "Mohammed Salem," but they said he never did anything with it. They said they had found nothing else that might indicate any interest in violent jihad or even in Islam.
  An article in The Daily Caller asked this question:
Are we allowed to ask why this mass-murderer would’ve created a site called “Mohammed Salem”? Was he a fan of Emirati soccer player Mohammed Salem Saleh Al Saadi? Did he appreciate the work of Palestinian photojournalist Mohammed Salem, or the Dubai news anchor with the same name? Or perhaps one of the other Mohammed Salems out there in the world?
While these explanations could certainly be the case it does not mean that  Aaron Alexis could not be somehow influenced or connected to jihadists or their ways. To dismiss this would be as flawed as all the problems he had and apparently well known, that were dismissed.  This requires further thorough investigation. Don't expect the Obama administration or the Main Stream News Media to do so, they were too quick to jump on the Buddhist band wagon. Quick to dismiss any possible links to Islamic Jihadists. Buddhists are usually very peaceful so one wonders how he could practice Buddhism but yet be so violent.

Google Mohammed Salem and you will come up with hundreds of names, so yes, in and of itself it means little, but couple it with his behavior and his final acts and it certainly cannot just be dismissed. Does anyone think because he was paranoid, hearing voices and playing violent video games all day that he could not possibly be influenced by terrorists?  Look at any terrorist action, look at some of the barbaric acts that are carried out by them, torturing and beheading innocent people, especially children, these people are NUTS, so someone of Alexia ilk would find them a perfect fit.
