Biden hinted at deeper ties for suspect than wanting Siddiqui’s release. DOJ, DHS, FBI coordinating and so are US-British agencies. Expect more on this investigation. We still don’t know how Gunman entered US, or how he acquired arms.

Deputy PM Safadi just concluded a one-week visit to US. These are one of most stark warnings Jordan has issued about situation between Israelis & Palestinians. Amman has played key role in last few months in brokering calm, but finds these efforts alone now unsustainable.

Insane footage of train tracks in downtown LA looking like a garbage dump following wave of theft of packages on cargo containers. The sea of litter is what thieves left behind... #LosAngeles

Whole video thread from CBS’ correspondent here. Shocking images from one of most renowned cities in US/world
Keep hearing of train burglaries in LA on the scanner so went to #LincolnHeights to see it all. And… there’s looted packages as far as the eye can see. Amazon packages, @UPS boxes, unused Covid tests, fishing lures, epi pens. Cargo containers left busted open on trains. @CBSLA
