On July 16th, Muhammad Abdulazeez opened fire on a recruiting center in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The coward took the lives of four U.S. Marines and one U.S. Navy Sailor. From the moment the tragedy struck, Americans across the country knew what the attack was: Terrorism.
The mainstream media and Obama held back from calling it an act of terror, instead searching for any way to blame it on something else. It took 5 days for the White House to finally lower their flags in honor of the servicemen killed.
In light of the recent San Bernardino terrorist attacks, FBI Director James Comey seems more ready to call the brutal attacks what they really are. Comey held a press conference Wednesday.
“We’ve investigated Chattanooga as a terror attack from the beginning. The Chattanooga killer was inspired by a foreign terror organization,” Comey said. However, Comey was not specific as to which organization inspired the terrorist. “It’s hard to entangle which particular source. There are lots of competing poisons out there.”
Now that the attack is classified as a terror attack, the victims should finally be eligible to receive the Purple Heart.
