DOMESTIC TERRORIST ATTACK ON U.S. MILITARY FACILITIES IN CHATTANOOGA:
On 16 July, at 10:45 local time, Muhammad ABDULAZEEZ opened fire with an AK-47-style rifle against two U.S. military facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee. First, he attacked a U.S. National Guard recruiting office on Lee Highway before driving to and attacking a U.S. Navy Reserve Center on Amnicola Highway. Four Marines were killed and three others wounded (a police officer, a Marine recruiter, and a U.S. Navy sailor). ABDULAZEEZ was killed about 30 minutes after he began his attack, after engaging responding police officers. Investigators are treating this as a domestic terrorist attack, but the motive of the shooting is under investigation.
1993: Geneva JONES, a secretary with a top secret clearance in the State
Department’s Bureau of Politico-Military Affairs, was arrested for
theft of government property and transmission of defense information to
unauthorized persons. The FBI said tat she smuggled classified documents
for two years to West African journalist Dominic NTUBE. She was carrying classified government documents at the time of her arrest.
"This case underscores the persistent national security threat posed by insiders stealing critical national defense information in order to benefit foreign governments. Fortunately, the aggressive counterintelligence posture of the FBI and our interagency partners enabled the identification and neutralization of Awwad’s efforts before he transferred any information to a foreign power. Working together, we prevented the loss of billions of dollars in research costs and the exposure of potential vulnerabilities to our newest generation of nuclear aircraft carrier.” - Assistant Director Randall C. Coleman of the FBI's Counterintelligence Division, 15 June 2015.
