HAIFA, Israel – One year after Israel’s vaunted Iron Dome defense system helped protect citizens from a rocket barrage launched from Gaza, the Jewish State has deployed the shield to the north, likely amid fears Lebanon-based Hezbollah could get an infusion of cash and weapons from Iran.
In an exclusive interview with FoxNews.com, Col. Yoni Saada Marom, commander of Israel’s Active Defense Air Wing, said that the military drills were not a direct reaction to recent events, but made clear that Hezbollah and other terror organizations close to Israel’s borders presented a potentially heightened threat.
“We saw that during Operation Protective Edge [2014 Gaza War] the Iron Dome faced one kind of challenge in the south,” he said. “Now, we are dealing with the challenges and scenarios that we think the enemies from the north will bring. One of the scenarios could be that, like Hamas, they will try and challenge us with a variety of threats simultaneously — which is a great challenge — but we are developing our concepts of operation.”
Some military analysts have expressed skepticism that the revolutionary defense shield will hold up under a sustained assault from a wide variety of more lethal missiles attacking from different points of the compass and maintain the approximately 90 percent interception rate claimed by the IDF during last year’s Gaza conflict.
“Now, we are dealing with the challenges and scenarios that we think the enemies from the north will bring.”

Seemingly emboldened by the nuclear deal that would hand as much as $150 billion to its patron, Iran, Hezbollah has recently ratcheted up rhetoric against Israel and the U.S. read more
Many are wondering why POTUS went to Africa’s Kenya and Ethiopia, now. Why did he choose to speak in Ethiopia as the platform to speak to the African Union on the African continent for the very first time? He’s the first sitting US President to visit Kenya and the very first to address the African Union in Africa.
Are you aware of the symbolism on the two Ethiopian flags on either side of Barack Obama? The Ethiopian flags were draped properly (for a Pagan Satanist or Wiccan) with the Pentagram pointing down meaning an embracing of the Satanic Pentagram. Research of the current deceptive meaning states that the Pentagram signifies “Unity for Ethiopia” or “Unity for All Civilization” aka The One World Order birthplace, since Ethiopia has long been thought to be, and recently scientifically proven to be the cradle or birthplace of all civilization. In fact in Obama’s speech to the African Union, he himself described Africa as “the cradle of humanity” and “one of the fastest-growing regions in the world.” read more
Updated 7.18.2015 A total of 5 now reported to have died (4 Marines 1 Navy) It appears there was/is confusion among the MSM as well as Fox as to the correct sex of the US Navy Sailor who was mistakenly reported to be female, who was injured severely by the Muslim shooter in Chattanooga TN 2 days ago. The sailor has now died after heroic surgical and medical efforts to save the sailors life.
Marine Sgt. Carson Holmquist, a Wisconsin native who resided in Jacksonville, North Carolina, according to USA Today.
One of four US Marines that were slaughtered by a Kuwaiti born Muslim extremist have been identified, his name is Thomas Sullivan, decorated Iraq veteran from MA. Our prayers IJN+ go out to his family and friends as well as the other soldiers families. We will keep you updated.
And Obama wishes everyone err Muslims this?
Michelle and I hope today brings joy to all of your homes, both here in the U.S. and around the world. From my family to yours, Eid Mubarak!
This the same day that our brave US Marines were killed, shot dead by a Muslim Islamic Jihadist terrorist in Chattanooga, TN. Three others were injured, one Navy injured severely (she is still in surgery at the writing of this post) as well as a Tennessee State police officer. A total of 50 shots were allegedly fired by the Kuwait born terrorist, killing four of our brave men who were ambushed unarmed.
The FBI identified the shooter, now deceased, as naturalized American citizen from Kuwait, Mohammod Youssef Abdulazeez. He was trained as an engineer and worked for the City of Chattanooga as a policeman (unarmed) in the Department of Public Works Stormwater Management Division.
7.17.2015 Update 6:18AM-ET It has been confirmed by trusted terror expert that ISIS ordered the attack responsible for Chattanooga deaths and injuries of US Marines, Naval officer and TN police officer. Will update as more details evolve and are confirmed.
The White House was lit up like an Iranian Flag to honor the suicidal Iran deal propelling Iran into completing their long awaited ICBM’s. The Joint Chiefs of Staff warned Obama that giving Iran ballistics technology is off the table. So at the last minute Obama gave Iran’s Rouhani ballistics technology too. This is WWIII in the making while our POTUS sides with the opposing team.
Why isn’t our flag flying at half mast in honor of the shooting victims? I’m not speaking of the photo below but since the terror attack in TN it has not been lowered at all.
White House draped with light in Iranian flag colors 7.15.2015
(Publisher’s Note The authenticity of the White House pic lit up like Iran’s flag is widely debated but not yet debunked we are awaiting @BenShapiro to comment on his public upload and sharing of pic on date of the Iran deal 7.15.2015)
Four US Marines were senselessly targeted and gunned down by an Islamic Moslem monster in Tennessee yesterday. An additional three were shot and injured, one seriously who underwent surgery.
Our POTUS response? We will investigate this…
Mr. Barack Obama is all over the map as usual. Obama had a busy week giving up all leverage to Iran by giving them everything that they wanted plus more, much more: ICBM’s, Uranium, HEAVY water, access to all 19000 of their centrifuges to be whittled down (allegedly) to 6000 with the difference being 6 weeks versus 6 months to produce a working nuclear intercontinental ballistic nuclear missile. Iran now has an extra 150,000,000 (BILLION) US dollars to fund their Islamic global Jihad attacks with the crown jewels being nuking the USA (great Satan) and nuking Israel (the little Satan). Iran’s Rouhani gladly accepted all gifts all the while he led “Death to America” chants in his Parliament.
Oh, and the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) inspectors only observe Iran’s nuclear facilities and write reports after giving Iran twenty-four (24) days advance notice. The US has no representative that will be part of the inspecting process by the IAEA. And the clincher? There is no way for any nation, including USA, to verify the validity of those reports or Iran’s actual compliance to anything at any time. The Iran Deal is based upon the in-house agreement called “The Road Map” The only two parties in the room for the official signing were representatives from Iran and the IAEA.
Prologue Written by M. Katherine Orts for USDefenseLeague.com “Pushing Back Tyranny With Truth”
Newsmax- Ashley Edwardson As authorities investigate a deadly attack in Tennessee as a potential case of terrorism, which occurred on the heels of several attacks across the globe in recent weeks, President Barack Obama issued a statement Thursday wishing Muslims a happy Ramadan.
The Muslim holy month ends Friday.
The Islamic State (ISIS) has made several calls for its followers to launch terror attacks during Ramadan, and members of the U.S. military and law enforcement have also been singled out as potential targets.
A Tweet from an ISIS-linked Twitter account, meanwhile, seemed to give warning to Thursday’s attacks, mentioning Chattanooga. The time stamp of the Tweet was 10:34 a.m. Thursday; the shooting began at about 10:50 a.m.
It’s not clear what time Thursday the aforementioned White House statement was released, but Obama wished Muslims in the United States and across the world “joy” as Ramadan comes to a close.
Vienna – AP source cites Senior Western official for this disturbing intelligence report.
Iran is getting nukes, with oversight by inspectors that can be refused at the gate. US still has innocent civilians, CIA and former US military being held in Iranian prisons which are known to be the worst in the world.
As successful businessman, Donald Trump, now running for Republican candidacy for upcoming US 2016 Presidential election, says “Double, triple up the sanctions on Iran…No deal is better than a bad deal.”
USA along with six other world powers have reached a deal with Iran on its Nuclear Arms program. The earth shattering agreement took place Tuesday July 14th, 2015. Why on God’s green earth, would USA encourage Iran to build and accrue easily armed ICBM Nuclear Warheads?
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday that a nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers, led by the United States, was “a bad mistake of historic proportions.”
Netanyahu gave his thoughts on the agreement prior to the start of a meeting with Dutch Foreign Minister Bert Koenders in Jerusalem.
“Iran is going to receive a sure path to nuclear weapons. Many of the restrictions that were supposed to prevent it from getting there will be lifted,” Netanyahu said. “Iran will get a jackpot, a cash bonanza of hundreds of billions of dollars, which will enable it to continue to pursue its aggression and terror in the region and in the world.”
Other members of the Israeli government shared Netanyahu’s dislike of the agreement. Culture and sports minister Miri Regev, a former military spokeswoman, said the deal gave Tehran a “license to kill.” Regev also described the pact as “bad for the free world (and) bad for humanity.” She called for further lobbying against the deal and said that the U.S. Congress could still block it.
Meanwhile, Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely tweeted her displeasure with the deal, calling it “a capitulation of historic proportions by the West to the Iran-led axis of evil.”
Israel had been at the forefront of efforts to block an accord that would lift sanctions on Iran. Iranian officials over the years repeatedly have threatened to destroy Israel. Iran also has backed militant groups that have attacked Israel, including Hamas and Hezbollah.
On Monday, Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon said the deal with Iran will force the Jewish state to “defend itself, by itself.”
Also Monday, Netanyahu opened a Farsi-language Twitter account in an effort to reach out to the Iranian people. His first tweet included an image of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and said Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei “has said Iran should fight the U.S. regardless of the agreement, while Rouhani leads demonstrations expressing hatred.”
Twitter, Facebook, and other popular social media sites are technically banned in Iran but Iranians are active on Twitter through proxy servers.

Expect all US & Global access to generic medication and access to lifesaving surgeries to disappear completely if the new trade agreement, known as Trans-Pacific Trade Pact (TPP) goes through Congress as law. Our US patents for medicine and even surgical techniques will become renewably extended at 20 year intervals, making affordable access inaccessible to the majority of patients in the United States and around the globe..
#TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) future in anyone’s hands will be potentially life threatening for everyone who needs generic alternatives for medicines because they will not be available any longer if this indeed goes through.
Under the aforementioned, recently declassified, yet still secret to the US public, international TPP agreement, US & Global International Medical Patents will be indefinitely renewable at the 20 year mark for most any reason by the Tradenamed Patent holder, including dosage changes or any modifications to the original patent. Even surgical techniques will become renewably patentable making life saving medicines and surgeries available to only the wealthiest 99% in every nation on the globe.
We ask, why have only about 2000 people, so far, seen this video (below) out of our actual total US population of 370 million (including 40M illegal and alleged foreign undocumented Islamic hostile Muslim immigrants located in Islamic Jihadist training camps on US soil.) ~ M.

Washington DC – by Nicole Duran
Reporters at the White House were evacuated around 2 p.m. Tuesday afternoon from the briefing room as press secretary Josh Earnest was giving his daily briefing.
No reason was given and as far as was apparent, West Wing and Old Executive Office Building personnel were not asked to leave the complex.
After a few minutes outside, Secret Service members then ushered the journalists into the South Court Auditorium in the Old Executive Office Building. No instructions were given and the press corps was awaiting directions in a cell-serviceless auditorium.
NEW JERSEY | In a scene that could have been pulled from the movie Red Dawn, the Marines of Special-Purpose Marine Air Ground Task Force-New York landed on the baseball diamond of the Orange Avenue School in New Jersey. And with parents and teachers in tow smiling students adorned military hardware and toured the weapons of war.
Clearly conditioning the public to accept a military presence when the collapse occurs, this public school landing was only one part of a larger annual East Coast domestic military exercise consisting of 1800 Marines, sailors, and Coast Guardsmen.
This exercise is currently underway adding New York and New Jersey to the list of active drills while Jade Helm 15 is still months away.

Devices that could be used by terrorists to derail trains are being stolen from rail facilities around the country, the FBI warned today.
Nine derailers, a piece of railroad equipment used to derail train cars for safety purposes in railyards have been stolen recently, sources said, citing the FBI’s weekly intelligence bulletin.
The theft of these items is strange since they are of little use outside of the rail industry, according to the bulletin.
Railroads have been targeted in the past by terrorists, the bulletin said.
It specifically mentioned the Oct. 1995 derailment of an Amtrak train in Hyder, Ariz. In that incident, one person was killed and 78 were injured when parts of the track were sabotaged. The FBI located a derail 50 miles from Hyder.
The bulletin does not mention a specific threat, and the FBI has no indication the derail thefts are related to terrorism. The bulletin is distributed weekly to 18,000 state and local law enforcement agencies around the United States.
The bureau has also warned in the past that railways and other mass conveyances could be terrorist targets.
Printed below is an editorial written by none other than the King of the Vermont Commies, Bernie Sanders.
As you would expect from an avowed and quite public Socialist such as Bernie, he’s going after the Koch Brothers, and by extension of course their company: Koch Industries, Inc.
Socialists and Liberals in general will tell you that it’s important to support the small businesses in your town, because they help growth for that town moreso than a big business such as Wal-Mart does. But in reality, as anyone who’s done the slightest bit of research will tell you, Sam Walton started out rather small, and then grew from there. And as anyone with common sense will tell you, that is the case for every big business currently in operation here in the US, and for that matter in other countries where freedom has spread.
The fact is, Wal-Mart and other big businesses not only makes a great deal of money for themselves, but that money then goes back into various communities not just around the nation, but around the world! How many more unemployed people would there be without Wal-Mart? Sure, it’s not a glamorous job, or one that will net you a glamorous living, but it’s there, and it will always be there. It’s something that you work up from, much like Mr. Walton himself worked up from being a small business owner to establishing Wal-Mart as a national department store force. read more
Thank you all for being here. It’s great to be in Texas, the Lone Star State. The one star in the Texan flag represents all the free Western world needs today: defiance, pride and independence.
It is no coincidence that we are in Garland, Texas, tonight. It is here that, three months ago, shortly after the Charlie Hebdo massacre, Islamic activists convened to demand that free speech be curtailed. They want to prohibit cartoons, books and films which they find insulting.
Our answer is clear:
Don’t mess with Texas!
Don’t mess with the free West!
Don’t mess with our freedom of speech!
Friends, allow me to thank Pamela Geller for organizing this exhibition.
Pamela is an extraordinary woman. I only have a few heroes, but Pamela certainly is one of them. Let us give her a big applause!
My friends, you are all winners. Everybody present here tonight deserves respect, just for being here.
The cartoonists, the participants in this Muhammad contest all did fantastic work. All of you are not only talented but also very brave. For Islam has put a death sentence on depicting Muhammad. But this has not frightened you. And even if it did, it has not stopped you. Because you believe in freedom of speech.
I applaud you for that.
However, there can be only one winner of the contest. And that is, as you already know, Bosch Fawstin.
Bosch knows what he is talking and cartooning about, being a former – or in his own words recovered – Muslim.
I have known the fantastic work of Bosch – who also created the anti-jihad superhero Pigman – for many years already and I want to congratulate him for his bravery and excellent work and winning the contest today.
Your statement, my statement, the statement of every single person present in this room here tonight is clear: We will never allow barbarism, we will never allow Islam to rob us of our freedom of speech! Never!
I know from my own experience how dangerous it is to stand for this freedom. I know how dangerous it is to speak the truth about Islam.
I am on death lists of Al-Qaeda and the Pakistani Taliban and terrorists from ISIS because I tell people the truth about Islam. Islam has declared war on us, on our Judeo-Christian civilization. Islam wants to rob us of the freedoms and liberties. Islam and freedom are totally incompatible.
I am a politician, but cartoonists, like my good friends the Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard and the Swedish artist Lars Vilks, are also on the death list. Both Kurt and Lars have already been the victims of murder attempts.
Another man on this list was the cartoonist Charb, editor of the French magazine Charlie Hebdo. As we all know, he and 9 of his colleagues were murdered last January in Paris by followers of the religion of hate. According to Islamic Sharia law, they were all guilty of the same crime.
The crime of depicting Muhammad, the crime of defaming the so-called Prophet of Islam.
A crime punishable by death by the religion of death.
In order to show them that we will not have Islam dictate us the law, we are here with an exhibition of Muhammad cartoons.
We are here in defiance of Islam.
We are here to defend our rights and stand for freedom of speech.
That is our duty.
As Ronald Reagan, your greatest president ever, said: “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”
I am happy to say that nobody died while watching these cartoons.
This proves that, unlike jihadis, cartoons do not kill people.
Cartoons do not kill jihadis, but jihadis kill cartoonists.
That is a huge difference which we should never forget.
Huntington was wrong. It is not a clash of civilizations, but a clash between civilization and barbarism.
Our Judeo-Christian culture is far superior to the Islamic one.
I can give you a million reasons. But here is an important one.
We have got humor and they don’t.
There is no humor in Islam.
In 1979, ayatollah Khomeini devoted an entire radio broadcast to this topic: “Allah did not create man so that he could have fun,” the ayatollah said. “There are no jokes in Islam,” he added. “There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam.”
For once, the ayatollah was right.
Islam does not allow free speech, because free speech shows how evil and wrong Islam is.
And Islam does not allow humor, because humor shows how foolish and ridiculous it is.
You are extremely fortunate to live in America. Because you have a first amendment.
In Europe, it is not just the jihadis who go after you. The authorities do so, too.
In the Netherlands, I have been dragged to court on hate speech charges for speaking the truth about Islam. I was acquitted, but now the authorities are prosecuting me again.
We are harassed, but sympathizers of the Islamic State are left in peace. Last Summer, they took to the streets in The Hague. They carried swastikas and ISIS flags. They shouted “Death to the Jews.” And you know what? The authorities did nothing. We have weak leaders. Appeasers are ruling The Netherlands, Europe and the USA. We have to turn the tide and we will. New leadership is what we need to defend our freedom of speech and resist the ongoing Islamization of the West.
Today, many of our Western leaders want us to shut up.
When we tell the truth about Islam, they call it Islamophobia.
When cartoonists make drawings of Muhammad, they are accused of provoking people.
A few years ago, in my country, the Netherlands, the police even raided the house of a cartoonist.
In his address to the United Nations in 2012, President Obama said: “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”
But we say: The future must not belong to Islam!
Do you hear, Mr Obama? We say: No to Islam!!
Unlike President Obama and his European colleagues, we are not willing to sign away our freedom and independence.
The day we give away humor and freedom of speech is the day that we cease to exist as a free and independent people.
And that day will never come.
That is what this exhibition is all about!
From here we send a message to President Obama and all his colleagues: We will never submit!
We are not intimidated by Islam.
We will not be picking up swords and axes and breaking into people’s homes. But we will not remain silent either.
Moderation in the face of evil is evil. This is not what our age needs. We must uncap our pens; we must speak words of truth. We are facing a determined enemy who is striving through all means to destroy the West and snuff out our traditions of free thought, free speech, and our Judeo-Christian values. Make no mistake: if we fail, we will be enslaved. So the only option is to defend our freedom with all the energy we have. It’s time to be brave. It’s time to do our duty.
Instead of giving in to fear and adopt the Islamic taboo on depicting Muhammad, I propose that we draw another conclusion:
Lift the cause of the fear!
Let us de-islamize our societies!
No more Islam, no more mosques, no more Islamic schools. It is time for our own culture and heritage.
Let us liberate ourselves from tyranny.
That is another good reason why we are having this exhibition here today.
Depicting Muhammad is an act of liberation!
Let us hold similar exhibitions all over the United States and all over the free world. From Canada to Australia to Europe.
We need Pamela Geller everywhere in the world.
I invite you to come to the Netherlands with this exhibition. I will help you exhibit these cartoons in the Dutch parliament building.
We will never allow Islam to restrict freedom!
And we will never bow in the direction of Mecca!
I am not saying that there are no moderate Muslims. Fortunately, there are Muslims who do not live according to the Islamic commands. But there is no moderate Islam!
Not all Muslims are terrorists. But most terrorists today are Muslims.
That is why we say: The less Islam, the better!
The Islamic creed obliges one and a half billion people around the world to take Muhammad as their example.
He led a gang of robbers, who looted, raped and killed hundreds of people.
Historic sources describe orgies of inhumanity. An example is the genocide of the Jews of Medina in 627. One of the head choppers was Muhammad himself. Confronted with the lunacy of Islamic terrorists today, it is not hard to find out whom they get their inspiration from.
It is from Muhammad who – we have to tell the truth – was a warlord, a murderer and a pedophile
There is no turning back once one has become a Muslim. For even though article 18 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that every person has the right to “change his religion or belief,” in Islam there is only a death penalty for leaving the faith.
So, let us expose Muhammad. Let us show the world what Islam truly is.
And let us support Muslims, like Bosch, who wish to leave Islam and liberate themselves from fear.
Apostates are heroes and more than ever they deserve the support of freedom loving people all over the world.
Muhammad fought and terrorized people with the sword.
We fight Muhammad and his followers with the pen.
And the pen will prove mightier than the sword.
Muhammad’s followers fight us with bloodbaths, but today here in Garland we fight them with humor.
Because bloodbaths enslave, while humor liberates.
Let me end by quoting Sam Houston, the founding father of this great state of Texas:
“Texas has yet to learn submission to any oppression, come from what source it may.”
May his words inspire us all today never to submit to Islamic barbarism.
Latest update 5:37 ET It is reported now that two incendiary devices were indeed imploded at approximately 5:00Am ET by EMP technology on the active crime scene site by the Garland PD Bomb squad assisted by their bomb robot at the Culwell center.

Garland, TX – Northern Suburb of Dallas
Two suspects bodies lay untouched outside their vehicle in a parking lot out in front of The Curtis Culwell Center. The bodies and/or vehicle may be booby-trapped according to local Garland, Texas police officials. It is still an active shooting scene due to potential incendiary devices being present on the scene.
Police choppers have been flying overhead for a few hours. There was a rumored third suspect but nothing official has been confirmed.
A police bomb robot is currently scanning the location for bombs along with human police bomb technicians as of 1:15AM ET
A free speech event in the form of an Art Exhibition and “Draw Muhammad” art contest sponsored by Pamela Geller was the focus of Islamic Jihad tonight. It is still an active crime scene at The Curtis Colwell Center owned by the Garland Independent school district. The district titled the event as an anti Islamophobia event “Stand With Muhammad.” The two separate titles stand in stark contrast to each other. The “Draw Muhammad” title was given by Pamela Geller, an avid Anti-Sharia Anti Islamic pro free speech educator, speaker and author. Pro Free Speech advocate, Geller was the main organizer of the Garland free speech “Draw Muhammad” art event contest with the winner receiving 10,000K.
Pamela was interviewed about the incident and asked, “Aren’t you afraid?” She answered, “Aren’t you afraid of doing nothing?” “It is going to get worse…War is here.”
The “Draw Muhammad” free speech art competition was held at the Curtis Culwell Center which is rented often for public events in Garland, Texas. The location was specifically chosen by Pamela Geller in response to an anti free-speech Pro Sharia Islamic event which was held January 17th, 2015 at the Curtis Culwell center rented out by organizers sympathetic to the perpetrators of the Islamic Jihadist terror massacre which occurred at the Charlie Hebdo headquarters and which killed several writers including the editor for drawing and joking about Muhammad.
7:45pm CT: Officers tell Gabriel Roxas that two suspects were shot dead. Pamela Geller, an organizer of the event, spoke to to CBS 11 from lockdown via phone at 7:45p CT. In addition to echoing our ground team, she told a news producer, “I heard officers talking of possible explosions in backpacks and the car.”
8:11pm CT: Joe Harn of the Garland Police Department tells CBS 11 two men pulled up in vehicle on the roadway in front of the center and began firing at a Garland ISD security guard. Garland Police returned fire and killed both suspects.
8:11pm CT: Suspects’ vehicle being checked for explosives. It is scheduled to be detonated.
8:20pm CT: Authorities tell CBS 11 that SWAT will escort 48 people at a time out of arena soon, but many are parked in a now secured area and cannot access cars.
8:30pm CT: Garland ISD spokesman Chris Moore says one of their security guards was shot. His name is Bruce Joiner. He has been with the district for 8 years. He has non-life threatening injuries after being shot once in the leg. He’s in stable condition at a local hospital.
“An act of Jihad…to intimidate the American government. Walid Phares, an author, on the motives of Islamic Jihadists.
Katrina, an attendee of the “Draw Muhammad” free speech event was also part of an intercessory prayer group for the injured policeman. The group spontaneously prayed and sang with others, “God Bless America” on the scene as events unfolded. “I think here in The United States we ought to be taking this very seriously…” said Katrina.
Police spokesperson, Joe Harn, for Garland, TX, “We prepare for somebody like this, especially since some of our officers were hired as extra security for this standing event.” Approximately two hundred people attended the event.”
“There’s a lot of investigation to be done.” “We are working on the car. It stopped out in front…to the side of the building.” “So far as threats we’ve been monitoring this for a couple of months.” “We are not going to expose ourselves to a bomb inside the car. So yes the bodies are still outside…It was probably about 20 or 15 minutes before the event was going to be over when this event occurred…It could be hours before this crime scene is clear.”
