Just rcvd an email about this from my husband. E-mail included pics, but I cant figure out how to copy and put them on here. Typing in all CAPS are the subject's names. Ask your active duty spouse about the e-mail so you can see pics! This posting is not intended to scare anyone just to keep our families safe.
On 26Mar11, three Middle-Eastern males were overheard making hateful and terroristic threats towards Marines at a gas station in Oceanside, CA. One of the men asked an attendant for directions to Camp Pendleton, CA, and left driving the below mentioned silver Toyota.
At 0010/27Mar11, NAEEM approached the Main Gate, MCB CPC, driving a vehicle which matched the description provided by the Gas Attendant. While MPs were searching NAEEM and his vehicle, PETROSSIAN and AVANOSIAN approached the Main Gate in the below mentioned black Mercedes. After MPs signaled the vehicle to stop, the vehicle slowed and then continued through the gate. A hot stop was initialized by MPs adjacent Pacific View Housing.
A physical inspection of the black Mercedes revealed the steering wheel airbag was tampered with and had duct tape securing it in place with wires hanging out.
All vehicles were searched by MWD and EOD, which was negative in locating any explosive materials.
NAEEM was interviewed and claimed not to know PETROSSIAN or AVANOSIAN. NAEEM stated he was lost and was trying to get to Glendale, CA.
PETROSSIAN and AVANOSIAN were interviewed and also stated they were lost attempting to reenter Hwy-5 and were trying to get to Glendale, CA.
A criminal background history of the above mentioned persons identities was conducted by the Department of Homeland Security which failed to identify any derogatory records for the men.
US Border Patrol, confirmed the above individuals immigration status and confirmed the men were not on any Terrorist watch databases.
All men were released on their own recognizance.
At 0830/27Mar11, NAEEM again approached the Main Gate in his silver Toyota.

This and when people were talking about how they wish they were told when stuff was going on always makes me think about Men in Black. Ya know the part where K is telling J about how the only way people go on with their happy little lives is that they don't know about all the alien invasions and such. We really don't need to know about every little "incident."
And this is why I think they should do %100 ID checks and have to get temp passes to get on base agreed...it is like this at some bases... You eather have declas or a pass...or you dont go on...military ID or not....and I think they should be doing that at ALL bases!!!
My friend said she was behind a car that slowed and when was told to stop...sped off this weekend...and about 5MP cars went flyin after him... scary :(
That is scary :( I wish they would post third like THIS on the Pendleton website or have it sent from FRO's too. This kind of stuff isn't wanting to "know what your neighbors got the cops called on them for last Friday night" but definitely good info to be alert too.
