Rogers Statement on Pensacola Naval Air Station FBI Update
WASHINGTON – Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.), House Homeland Security Committee ranking member, today released the following statement after the Department of Justice declared the Pensacola Naval Air Station attack an act of Terror.
“The Department of Justice correctly classified the attack on December 6, 2019 at Pensacola Naval Air Station as an act of terrorism. This act of terrorism killed three Navy sailors and wounded eight others. More violence would have ensued except for the heroic efforts of those who confronted this terrorist. I pray for the families of the victims.”
“While the FBI concluded no other individuals conspired with the terrorist, evidence discovered during the investigation leaves me disturbed about the character of a number of these individuals who participated in the program. We must do a better job at vetting foreign nationals who receive training at our military bases.”
