The AP report says two male Afghan nationals who were being trained at the base have gone missing.
In a Tuesday night news release, officials from the base said the two failed to report to their regular Monday maintenance training with the 81st Fighter Squadron at Moody Airforce base near Valdosta Georgia. The two students have been training at the base since February of 2015 and were screen prior to their arrival in the U.S. over a year ago.
The report says that federal authorities are now searching for the students who have been training alongside their American counterparts and do not pose any apparent threat.
An ABC affiliate out of Georgia posted this statement from the Lowndes County Sheriff's Office:
On Tuesday, the Sheriff's Office was made aware of two Afghan students who had left Moody Air Force Base and were unaccounted for. The Sheriff's Office immediately committed investigative personnel to assist. The Information about the pair was immediately distributed to all deputies including those assigned as School Resource Officers at our local schools. Officials from the Air Force are continuing the investigation. Sheriff Prine stated "We have and will continue to remain vigilant and will certainly offer any assistance requested by our law enforcement partners on the base."
The same site also posted a statement from the Associated Pressed saying that "the two Afghan men" pose no known threat.
Interesting that AP felt the need to stress the nationality of the men.
Could the media be priming the public for another major false flag attack similar to 911? If the men pose no threat, why the international media coverage that two grown men skipped class?
Let's spread the word and hopefully, avert what is shaping up to look like trouble.
