Gunman Screams 'Allahu Akbar', Obama Sees Motive Unclear
A terrorist described as a "21-year-old Kosovar who lives in Frankfurt," opened fire at the Frankfurt Airport, killing two American soldiers. Kosovo's population is 80% Muslim. The New York Times reports that "the gunman first talked to the military personnel to find out who they were and then opened fire, shouting ‘God is great' in Arabic."
I want to take a brief moment just to say a few words about a tragic event that took place earlier today in Frankfurt, Germany...We don't have all the information yet, and you will be fully briefed as we get more information, but this is a stark reminder of the extraordinary sacrifices that our men and women in uniform are making all around the world to keep us safe, and the dangers that they face all around the globe.
