okay, this is getting weird…
in investigating this story further, there were a few things that seemed out-of-place in some of the accounts of the oakland shootings yesterday, at some strange, tiny college in oakland…
here’s what caught my interest at first…
One’s brother, U.S. Army Sgt. Su Wan Ko, died in a traffic accident in Virginia in March 2011, while on special assignment from the George C. Marshall Center, an international security and defense studies institute in Garmisch, Germany.
A U.S. Army sergeant was killed while traveling north on Interstate 77 in Carroll County on Monday night.
According to Virginia State Police First Sgt. Mike Musser, Su Wan Ko, 31, of Colorado Springs, Colorado was killed in the accident. His name had been withheld since Monday until authorities could reach his next of kin.

another website had this to add:
Last year, Goh lost two family members, his mother and a brother.
His brother, U.S. Army Sgt. Su Wan Ko, died in March 2011 in an auto wreck in Virginia while on special forces training.
Sgt. Su Wan Ko was on a temporary assignment in-processing to attend Special Forces selection training when he was killed after slamming his car into a boulder.
so, who did he work for? stars and stripes had this to say:
Ko had worked as an administrative noncommissioned officer at the Marshall center since 2008. He was on a temporary assignment in-processing to attend Special Forces selection training when he was involved in the accident. He died March 8.
and, what exactly is the marshall center…why, it turns out to be a fourth reich institution, for helping to westernize the countries that emerged after the fall of the soviet union…and other stuff…
