Frankfurt Airport is to provide separate drive-in access for buses carrying U.S. military personnel, German officials said Tuesday, six days after two Airmen were killed and two wounded by a lone Islamist.

Boris Rhein, interior minister of the state of Hesse, said the secluded bus stop meant servicemen would no longer have to alight from and board buses on the forecourt in front of the terminal.

The suspect walked up to the Airmen at a bus stop and shot them on March 2 after they had arrived on a commercial flight from London.

  • THERE WAS NEVER A VALID REASON FOR ANY US MILITARY MEMBER TO BE PARADED INTO A SOFT TARGET KILL ZONE ON A USAF BUS. THIS IS A GCM..GENERAL COURTS MARTIAL OFFENSE FOR THE COMMANDER WHO ALLOWED THIS TO HAPPEN. LET’S SEE HOW LONG IT TAKES FOR SOMEONE TO MAKE THE HEADS ROLL, OR WILL IT BE LIKE FT HOOD WHERE NO ARMY GENERAL HAS been held accountable. I WILL NOT FORGET and I PROMISE the DEAD and WOUNDED to RAGE ON UNTIL JUSTICE HAS BEEN DONE.
