More info from ABC News.
WASHINGTON Apr 11, 2005 — Police ordered an evacuation of the west side of the U.S. Capitol on Monday after a man dressed in black and carrying two black suitcases stationed himself on a plaza leading to an entrance.

Police, some armed with assault rifles, gathered at the top of the Capitol steps but did not try to get closer to the man, who faced the Capitol from a plaza below its west entrance.

Among the officials whose offices are on the west side of the Capitol looking out upon the National Mall are House Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Ill., Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.

The cops have subdued the man and have him in custody. The two cases (Bags) that are thought to contain the explosives have not been touched.
Man was taken down after turning his back on the cops.

I would have to say if he is just threatening to blow himself up he is just deranged. If it were a terrorist he would have blown himself up without notice. But its still a crummy situation any way you look at it.
