Please read the update below on the California air base incident where a man drove through the gates of the base igniting himself and propane tanks on fire. The incident was labelled terrorism yesterday but today the FBI says the attack has no “nexus to terrorism”. This seems to be the new lingo from the FBI on terrorism. Please let us know what you think about this mystery…
MYSTERY OR SOMETHING ELSE?
The FBI has no idea where The Travis Air Force Base suicide bomber was living and where his family is. They say they’re “having trouble” locating his family. Huh? This is the FBI! Isn’t that their job? The man had THREE cell phones on him! They can’t get information from those phones?
WHAT IS “NEXUS TO TERRORISM”?
Fox 5 Atlanta reports:
The FBI says an attack at a Northern California Air Force base this week has no known “nexus to terrorism.”
The vehicle was loaded with five propane tanks and three gasoline cans. The man had three cellphones.
Ragan identified the driver as 51-year-old Hafiz Kazi, most recently of San Francisco, though investigators aren’t sure where he was living before Wednesday’s incident.
He says investigators aren’t sure why Kazi came to the air base or why he lit the Kia van on fire. He says investigators have had trouble locating family of Kazi, who was originally from India but has lived in the United States since 19
PREVIOUSLY LABELLED A TERRORIST ATTACK BECAUSE:
“Since he ignited himself, investigators are treating this as an act of terrorism.”
The FBI and Air Force are investigating this incident. A big deal? You bet it is!
TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. — A car loaded with propane tanks ran through the main gate at Travis Air Force Base in northern California on Wednesday night. Military personnel ran up to the burning car that exploded in flame after breaching the security gates.
“The guy came to the gate with propane tanks in his vehicle, he started reaching for what looked like an I.D card, started messing with a fuel ignition source to blow the propane tanks. He then drove into the outbound portion of the lane where he burned to death. The Amn was working the lane the driver came through attempted to save the man’s life, but the propane tanks burned the man up. We closed the 1 ton black gates manually. We didn’t know if it was a terrorist attack or a suicide, but we were using the word Bomb for the incident. He stopped initially to confront the guard, but the SF member screamed he had a Bomb and ran for cover. The car then sped off an burst into flames. No shots fired. They evacuated everything within a 1000 ft cordon, to include the “FAM CAMP” trailer park. Fairfield PD evacuated all businesses next to the base. The Hospital gate was always open with very strict stop check and pass procedures. They should have increased the FPCON. FBI, OSI and county investigators were the only ones allowed into the scene.” Travis Air Force Base
In video posted on an Air Force forum on Facebook, firefighters are seen attempting to put out the flames:

Law enforcement sources say the car carried propane tanks and the driver deliberately ignited the fire. He died inside the car, which drove off the road into a ditch. There are no reports of shots fired during the incident. The driver has been identified by law enforcement but not been named.
Since he ignited himself, investigators are treating this as an act of terrorism. The FBI has joined the Air Force in the investigation.
Travis Air Force Base is a main military air cargo and transport terminal on the West Coast, supporting operations across the Pacific. It’s home to some 7,000 active U.S. Air Force military personnel.
The main gate at Travis was closed for 12 hours after the incident and officials say there is no known threat to the base or the community. Keep reading…
