Nothing to see here folks, just a man with a bomb. It’s unclear why Yahoo put the headline in the past tense. The guy still is an explosivesÂ expert trained by the Army even if heÂ just got fired.
SAN ANTONIO (Reuters) – A man arrested on New Years Eve at a Texas airport with explosives is an Army-trained demolitions expert and member of the elite Green Berets who served in Afghanistan and is stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, military officials said on Monday.
It continues until this absurdity:
“Officials declined to speculate on the reason Atwater had the explosives, which city officials said were in “military grade explosives wrapping” in his bag.”
“At no time was there any danger to the people at Midland International Airport or the people of Midland Texas,” Mark Morgan, Special Agent in Charge of the El Paso office of the FBI said in a statement.
NOTE: This was one of the rareÂ timesÂ in four years that Yahoo actually named a source.
