5. I want to know who directed them to the most vulnerable windows...

This sounds like something the investigations of the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol should be taking a very close look at: Most of the ground-floor windows and doors in the Capitol had been reinforced just a couple years ago. But the insurrectionists were in several cases able to zero in on the dozen or so ground-floor windows and doors that hadn’t been reinforced, the Los Angeles Times reports.

“Video shows some of the first rioters to break through the police line running past 15 reinforced windows, making a beeline for a recessed area on the Senate side of the building, where two unreinforced windows and two doors with unreinforced glass were all that stood between them and hallways leading to lawmakers inside who had not begun to evacuate,” the L.A. Times reports.

...had some part of the mob—say, some Proud Boys or Oath Keepers—carefully observed the Capitol’s defenses in advance, then led the rest of the crowd to those places? That could really juice the level of conspiracy understood to have been at play.

Or, worse, did they have inside information? And if so, who provided it?
