The Silence of Our Media

By Sean Osborne, Associate Director, Military Affairs

UPDATE 15 July 2007: The Northeast Intelligence Network is exremely pleased to report that as of last Thursday morning the medical condition of Senior Airman Jonathan Schrieken was improved by hospital staff at Camden’s Cooper University Hospital from critical to stable. This news comes via the local Burlington County Times newspaper in an article written by David Levinsky. The article also reported the deceased gunman had lived in Willingboro Township where the shooting took place as recently as two years ago, and that his .25 caliber semiautomatic handgun serial number had been “defaced”. This second fact speaks to a premeditated intent. However, no motive for the attempted assassination has been assigned as yet in the ongoing investigation by the Burlington County Prosecutors Office. It remains unknown how or when Marren acquired the weapon.

Exclusive to the Northeast Intelligence Network it is now known that approximately 10 days prior to the attempted assassination of SRA Schrieken, Matthew Marren was arrested by Cinnaminson Township police after he nearly “ran down” one of their officers who was directing traffic near a motor vehicle accident. Our source stated that Marren was “stoned” at the time of the arrest. As a result of that incident Marren missed, for obvious reasons, a July 12 Cinnaminson Municipal Court appearance.

Cinnaminson Township lies directly between Marren’s most recent home of record, his fathers Pennsauken Township home, and the Wiillingboro Township home of Senior Airman Jonathan Schrieken. Route 130 is the shortest path between the homes involved. Investigation continues…

12 July 2007: At around 5:30 pm on July 4, 2007, just a short few hours prior to nationwide fireworks celebrations in honor of our Independence Day, 22-year old Senior Airman Jonathan Schrieken was standing in the driveway of his rented home in Willingboro, New Jersey. Having just returned from leave in his hometown of Columbus, Ohio to continue his duties as a Loadmaster with the 6th Airlift Squadron at New Jersey’s McGuire Air Force Base, the last thing on the mind of this young veteran of operations in Iraq and Afghanistan was the imminent and potentially lethal peril he was confronted with in the next minute.

Another 22-year old man approached from behind. That man was Matthew J. Marren, of nearby Pennsauken, N.J. Marren had driven the approxmately nine miles from his Pennsauken home to Schrieken’s Willingboro residence. He pulled up and walked over to inquire of Senior Airman Schrieken, “do you live in this house?” Schrieken replied in the affirmative, to which Marren responded “not any more” and proceeded to shoot him point blank in the chest. Marren then shot and killed himself.

If you have not heard of this event from one week ago then you were like me as of this morning when I was informed of the incident by Rick Brancadora, owner of WIBG 1020 AM radio in southern New Jersey. I work on the Ft. Dix/McGuire portion of the New Jersey megabase and had not heard of this. I immediately began to investigate this event and the reason for the lack of media coverage became glaringly obvious.

Until he shot and killed himself Matthew J. Marren was an obsessed anti-war activist, an anti-US military and anti-American lunatic. Was he a man with severe mental health issues? Undoubtedly. However, what member of that group of rabid anti-American, anti-war zealots is mentally stable? Seen Rosie lately? I rest my case.

And this is exactly why the so-called Main Stream Media failed to cover this story. Instead of some islamofascist dirt bag assassinating an American soldier in the war zone, here we have one those dirt bags American-born supporters doing the assassinating while standing upon our hero’s own driveway. Is this not eerily similar to the plot of the Fort Dix Six? Could Marren have done at his level of capability what the Dix Six were prevented from doing by the FBI?

Get the picture America?

Good, because that is the picture that our media will suppress and hide from you at all costs - one of their own politically minded constituents killing one of our finest on our own soil. It’s bad for their political point of view, and that is bad for their business and why they are silent when it comes to the truth of the matter. And that makes me mad as hell; as well it should you too.
