‘Dry Run’ For Terror Attack Launched By Illegal Immigrants

Earlier in the month, a Marine Base in Quantico, Virginia, saw two Middle Eastern men inside a box truck ram its way onto the base.

Potomac Local News reported that “after being pressed by Potomac Local News, base officials today said that in the early morning hours of Friday, May 3, 2024, the two men drove a truck up to the base’s main gate on Fuller Road, just outside Dumfries, told guards that they were contractors for Amazon and were making a delivery to Quantico Town’s post office. The town is located inside the military base.

The men did not provide any approved access credentials, and police determined the vehicle had no affiliation with the base, so officers directed the truck to a holding area for standard vetting procedures. “One of the military police officers noticed the driver, ignoring the direct instructions of the officers, continued to move the vehicle past the holding area and attempted to access…Quantico,” said base spokesman Capt. Micheal Curtis.

Officers then used vehicle denial barriers, or roadblocks that were used to keep out cars, which prevented the two men from traveling further onto the base. The occupants were detained and eventually turned over to ICE, and no one was injured, said Curtis.

Multiple sources report one of the individuals inside the truck is a Jordanian foreign national who recently crossed the southern border into the U.S., and that one of the occupants is on the U.S. terrorist watch list. Quantico did not confirm this information.”

Fox News spoke to a former federal firearms instructor, Dave Katz, who worked at Marine Corps Base Quantico in Virginia about the incident and his response was chillding. He warned that the two Jordanians could easily have been performing a “dry run,” testing security outside the facility ahead of a terror attack.

The same truck, had it been loaded with explosives, could have been a devastating weapon if it made it close enough to an occupied building, he warned.

“Driving the box truck was a dry run for driving a box truck that was not going to be empty the second time,” said Dave Katz, a former DEA agent and the CEO and founder of Global Security Group. “Can I prove that? No. But it’s like the 9/11 hijackers trying to get aboard planes with box cutters on other occasions prior to actually perpetrating the act.”

According to the report from the federal government’s 9/11 Commission, conspirators took cross-country test flights, smuggling box cutters onto planes before determining “the best time to storm the cockpit.”

“It’s their equivalent of a feasibility study,” Katz said. “What would happen if we get off the highway in a box truck and try to get into the base?”

Last week, The New York Post revealed that nearly a dozen Republicans in Congress have opened a probe into a new possible cover-up by the Biden administration because it involved multiple illegal aliens.

“The group of Republican lawmakers, led by Texas Rep. Chip Roy, are asking DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and FBI Director Chris Wray to explain whether or not the two were trying to execute an attack.

‘A brazen attempt to infiltrate a military installation by foreign nationals from a terror-prone region rightly raises concerns as to whether this constituted a possible terrorist attack. Yet, the federal government has not disclosed whether this breach was terror-related,’ the lawmakers wrote.

‘The American people deserve to know the scope of the threat posed by potential terror suspects, and the

extent to which the open border policies of this administration are facilitating it.’”

The Post also learned that leaders on the base attempted to hide the attack from the rank-and-file on the base for two weeks.

ICE confirmed to Fox News that the two Jordanians were in the country illegally.

“One of two Jordanian nationals who attempted to breach Marine Corps Base Quantico in Virginia earlier this month crossed into the U.S. illegally in April before being released, while the other was a foreign student whose status was terminated in January, according to U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

One of the individuals was admitted into the country by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on Sept. 11, 2022 as an F-1 nonimmigrant student with authorization to stay in the U.S. while he was a student. The student’s status was set to terminate on Jan. 14, 2023.

The second Jordanian was arrested on April 8, 2024, near San Ysidro, California after he entered the U.S. illegally from Mexico, according to ICE.

After being arrested, he was ordered to appear before an immigration judge on April 9, and the noncitizen was released on his own recognizance.”

The FBI has been warning for over a year that dozens of people on the bureau’s “terror watch list” have been apprehended at the southern border.
