Rabbi rescued hostages, not FBI

“The hero rabbi held hostage in his Texas synagogue has credited active-shooter training for helping him save his congregants — revealing Monday that he threw a chair at the terrorist so they could finally escape.”

Video shows them running out a door, before the flash-bang grenade and gunfire erupted. But in most media, the FBI is getting credit for the rescue.

UPDATE: WSJ’s assistant editor James Freeman has a good opinion piece on the rabbi’s actions headlined: Good Guy With A Chair.
