Jihad Watch : Authorities are searching for a motive. It could be terrorism, they
say. They also say it could be mental health issues. Authorities are
also trying to determine whether the German invasion of Poland in
September 1939 was motivated by Nazism, or by mental health issues among
the German High Command.
“Man whose vehicle exploded at Travis AFB identified,” KGO, March 23, 2018:
TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. (KGO) — A man who drove
into Travis AFB has been identified as 51-year-old Hafiz Kazi, two
sources with knowledge of the probe tell ABC News. The sources described Kazi as a “nomad” and a “vagabond,” who lived in many places. Authorities extracted a video from his cell phone and are analyzing
it to try and see if it could help point to a motive. Sources wouldn’t
offer any details about the video. The FBI is holding a press conference Friday at 3:30 p.m. and will be asking the public for help and any information about Kazi.
Sources say the information gathered so far still does not point to a
concrete motive, with one source calling the man a “mystery” still.
Terrorism, mental health issues, and everything else are still on the
table as authorities try to uncover a motive. On Wednesday, the car crashed at the main gate of Travis Air Force
Base. Officials are treating it as a possible attempted attack. The FBI
is now leading the investigation. “The car basically blew up,” said witness Kamren Hernandez. ” It was nothing anymore.”
Hernandez couldn’t believe what he witnessed from his family’s
restaurant just feet from the main gate at Travis Air Force Base — a
black SUV exploding seconds after breaching security gates. Hernandez’ father, Lamar, saw it too. “It kept exploding — boom boom. Kept on going.” Travis Air Force Base officials are investigating a security incident that occurred at the main gate on Wednesday…. A U.S. official tells ABC News it appears the driver had propane
tanks in the vehicle, which they may have ignited deliberately….

An incident this week at a U.S. Air Force base in
Northern California — in which a vehicle burst into flames after
crashing through the main gate — is being treated as “an act of
terrorism,” according to a report.
Authorities said a driver died, likely by igniting himself, after
gaining “unauthorized access” to Travis Air Force Base in Solano County,
about 55 miles northeast of San Francisco, on Wednesday night…
