Former Navy SEAL Rob O’Neill says Quantico Marine base breach could be ‘dry run’ by ‘Al Qaeda or ISIS’

A pair of Jordanian nationals who tried to breach security at Quantico Marine Corps Base may have been on a “dry run” for a terrorist attack, according to former Navy SEAL Robert O’Neill.

On May 3, the two foreigners rolled up to the gate at the Virginia military base in a box truck, claiming that they were Amazon delivery drivers, arousing the guards’ suspicion.

After they were directed into an area for a secondary inspection by military police, the driver stepped on the gas, defying orders from security personnel, and tried to drive the truck into the town center of the base. Fortunately, they were foiled by road barriers that had been set up.

The two were cited for trespassing on federal property and taken into custody by ICE.

O’Neill, the man who sent terrorist fiend Osama bin Laden to his great reward, told the New York Post that the incident – which has received surprisingly little media coverage – may be a sign of a far more dangerous operation.

The real-life American hero told the outlet that the attempted breach had the signs of a possible “dry run” and most likely for Islamist terror groups “Al Qaeda or ISIS,” to “see how far they can get a truck into the base” and to observe “how the base worked for a future terror attack.”

“It looks like it was a test run for something else like truck bombs because they tried to get in saying they were delivery drivers then sped up as the barricades popped up,” O’Neill said, crediting the Marines for doing a “good job” because nobody ended up dead.

“The [Jordanians] are lucky they weren’t shot,” he told the New York Post.

“When asked, the operator of the truck informed the military police officers they worked for a company subcontracted by Amazon and were making a delivery to the US Post Office located in the Town of Quantico,” base spokesman Capt. Michael Curtis said in a statement to the New York Post.

“It was at that time, 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 Marine Corps Base Quantico,”  Curtis explained.

“Due to the swift response and execution of their duties, the officers were able to deploy the vehicle denial barriers, prevent any further access to Marine Corps Base Quantico, and detain the individuals who were eventually turned over to ICE custody,” he added.

“So, I’m going to be really mindful, these two Jordanians that you’re speaking of remain in ICE custody, and given that it is an active law enforcement matter … I would have to refer you to ICE,” White House Press spox Karine Jean-Pierre said when asked about the incident.

It’s probably only a matter of time until Jean-Pierre’s boss gets someone killed with his open borders immigration policies, and it could be a lot of people when it happens.
