The time has come for Commander-in-Chief Obama to reverse decades of military tradition and require all officers -- both commissioned and non-commissioned -- to carry a sidearm at all times. One of the dirty little secrets is most military bases are gun free zones. The Islamic terrorists know this, and keep exploiting it.
From Fox News:
The gunman who shot and killed four Marines Thursday during two attacks at military facilities in Chattanooga, Tenn., has been identified as Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, a law enforcement source confirmed to Fox News.
Abdulazeez, 24, was born in Kuwait, a U.S. official told Fox. It was not immediately clear if he was a U.S. or Kuwaiti citizen. He was reported to be from Hixson, Tenn., just across the river from Chattanooga.
The law enforcement source said preliminary reports indicate Abdulazeez, who also died, was not on the FBI's radar leading up to Thursday's attacks. The circumstances of his death were not immediately disclosed.
The gunman first shot up a recruiting center before driving to the Navy Operational Support Center and Marine Corps Reserve Center and killing four Marines before he was shot, authorities said. Sources told Fox News police chased the gunman from the recruiting center to the Center, where the killings took place.
A well-placed source in Chattanooga told Fox News that one of the Marines who was killed was a "decorated war hero with two Purple Hearts." The youngest was 19 years old, the source said.The Islamic terrorist was 24 -- in other words he was born right around the time American Marines and other soldiers liberated Kuwait from Saddam Hussein during the Gulf War. Kuwait's apology? Hello? Perhaps I missed it.
Meanwhile, at the White House, the love of Muslims and the hate of the military produced this: "President Barack Obama sent a celebratory message to Muslims around the world on the White House Twitter account nearly two hours before his first tweet on the subject of four dead Marines killed by an Islamic gunman."
