Wonderful 😦 We’re a couple of hours away from the focus of this threat…though, Ramstein AFB is USAFE Headquarters.

According to U.S. and German officials, Islamist terrorists are planning an attack against U.S. military personnel or tourists in Germany. They are especially concerned with Patch Barracks, which is the headquarters for U.S. European Command near Stuttgart .

U.S. air marshals will expand protection of flights between Germany and the U.S., law enforcement officials told ABC News. “The information behind the threat is very real,” said a senior U.S. official to ABC News.

U.S. diplomatic and military facilities have seen an increase in security this past month after reports that Patch Barracks was under surveillance by suspected terrorists.

Al Qaeda often plans terrorist attacks in Germany. The 9/11 hijackers planned the attack in Hamburg, Germany. Several Islamist groups threatened violence in retaliation for Germany’s military presence in Afghanistan.
