Uh oh?

FBI investigating camouflaged intruder photographing Ore. dam

The FBI wants to know the identity of a man who climbed a barbed wire fence and entered Lookout Point Dam, southeast of Eugene, on March 2.

Surveillance cameras caught the intruder on tape just before 2 a.m.

The Army Corps of Engineers released the video in the hope the public will help identify the man.

“We don’t know exactly what he was doing or why he was there,” said Erik Petersen, Operations Project Manager, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

“We believe he was taking pictures of the facility. Why? We're not sure," said Petersen.

PSU terrorism expert Gary Perlstein agreed there was reason to be concerned, noting that the man was camouflaged and had to intentionally climbed over barbed wire fencing to reach the spot where he was seen on surveillance cameras.


Reconnaissance me thinks. The guy wasn't going through barbed wire at 2AM with camouflage for fun.

Probably the C.I.A. getting ready for their next big false flag after the big "Osama" gig in a couple of months. A little recon?

Yep. False-flag is a coming.

Will it be blamed on Al-CIAda ... or militias so they can finally get the guns?

Oh FFS, they already know who he is.
It is really sad that our people have stooped to the level of being suspicious of everyone.

And this incident happened over 2 months ago??
Doesn't like they are in much of a "rush" to catch him if they're just releasing it now....

The reason they waited 2 months is that they were hopeing to catch him without leting the public no that there was a breach there weather its cia or someone elese now they need our help and I dont think this nut job will get away with it again

Intruder has the same receding hair line as the Army Core spokesman (Erik Petersen, Operations Project Manager, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers). LOL .....

Could be nothing more than a Red Team exercise? Though, he failed as he was seen. Red Teams (also known as Red Cells) purposely test high profile facilities on a fairly regular basis. Ah, the good 'ol days.

I base this on his haircut, BDU Gore-Tex jacket, jeans and what looks to be a fairly high end camera.
Could be a bad guy as well, let’s see what transpires.

ill give credit to the FBI in that of all the agencies they tend to be able to differentiate between what really is or is not a threat.

DHS should take a lesson from them.

Oh great. This genious is gonna cause hell for all photographers. Now they actually have legimate claim against a person with a camera since he was stupid and went over a fence. Not because he had a camera.


[edit to add]

Surveillance cameras caught the intruder on tape just before 2 a.m.


That camera has to be pretty useless at that time without tripod btw.

[more add]
The video raises all kinds of questions. At 0.30 in it the guy says "he was taking pictures of himself". Considering that is so dark taking pictures of something else that is not under a light would be pretty much impossible. Not to mention this whole video stinks to hell to begin with. Also if the camera system was tracking him and zooming in etc. wouldn't that suggest that there was a person operating it? Or was it automatically tracking movement? Looked human enough for me. Why didn't they just intercept the guy there and then??

Theyve learned that people feed on drama and they are using it to their full advantage.

Gonna need more than a pair of undercrackers and a few onces of fizzlin' PETN to make a dent in that sucker!


Seriously, it would take a very large amount of explosives detonated withing the dam itself to weaken the walls enough to cause a breach. They are in more danger of failing due to maintenance budget cuts than the bogeyman.
