Apparently a car drove through the gate and people have been shot.

They are saying it is “Not terrorism” when it sounds precisely like that to me.

The system worked.

But apparently, they took out the guard gate, by intent.

I think they ruled out terrorism before the incident actually happened.

At some point, the American people (even some obama voters) will start linking these acts on army bases to what they are.

They know for sure it's not terrorism because the gunman has a Middle Eastern appearance and he was yelling Allah Akbar when he was shooting.

From what I have seen of US Air Force base security, I would not want to be in a car that crashed the gate. I would think the dead and wounded are most probably from within the car that violated security.

The MPs at Air Force bases are responsible for protecting 100s of millions of dollars worth of aircraft. Security must be and is, tight.

“Doesn’t seem to be terror related” out of the gate, of course.

Of course it’s not terrorism.....

It’s Toyota’s fault....

A Mennonite couple sitting in their Toyota at the gate were wating to be processed through when their car gas pedal stuck....

Over-caffinated gaurds then openned fire on the vehicle.....

""By Ari Cohn, Tribune September 30, 2006 God goes by many names in Scottsdale, more so now than ever. The city’s growth has brought with it adherents of many faiths, who pray in their own ways and often in different languages. Some have reached a critical mass and have built their own houses of worship, in addition to the 81 Christian churches of various denominations here. The reception given to members of the Bahai Faith, Muslim, Hindu and Jewish communities generally has been warm and welcoming, according to representatives of those denominations....(SNIP).... Growth in the Muslim community has followed a similar pattern, said M. Zuhdi Jasser, a congregant at the Islamic Center of the Northeast Valley. The mosque opened about a year ago at 12125 E. Via Linda. “It’s part of the general growth we see in the Valley. We certainly see new Muslims coming in to Scottsdale every month,” he said. “There are newcomers quite frequently, usually people moving in from out of town.” About 200 families belong to the mosque, Jasser said. “Construction’s not complete internally, but we got to the point where we can move our services there,” he said. “We used to have services in a hotel.” However, the services at the Pima Inn were meant to be a temporary measure. Azra Hussain, a spokeswoman for the Islamic center, said when the new mosque opened it was well-received. “I really can’t tell you enough how positive it’s been. We’ve been welcomed by the neighborhood,” she said." (SNIP)

One big happy faaaaaaamily.....

1 Dead in Shooting at Luke Air Force Base
Tuesday, February 23, 2010

Print ShareThisA shooting and fatal car crash on Luke Air Force Base in Litchfield, Ariz., have left one person dead and another injured, KSAZ reported.

A security forces officer reportedly tried to talk to two men inside a car, previously reported stolen and then driven through a gate at the base, said Officer Karen Gerardo, the public information officer at the Glendale Police Department.

When the officer got out of his car to try to make contact with the two men, the car drove directly at him. The officer shot at the car, which then crashed, said Gerardo.

One of the occupants of the vehicle was killed. His cause of death has not been determined.

The other person in the car was injured and transported to a hospital.

Investigators do not suspect terrorism, said Gerardo.

Good morning. It continues.

So we don’t yet know who are among the dead?

Praying that it is the terrorist(s) only!

But prayers all day for all our military bases and all our military and really for all our nation!!
