Military bases aren't doing criminal background checks
Amazingly, in this post 9-11 era, US Military bases were rarely doing criminal background checks on civilians who routinely access military bases. Had checks been performed, the 6 Islamic militants who plotted their terrorist attack on Ft Dix NJ, would have been arrested long ago, instead of more recently from a lucky tip-off.
3 of the men where in the Country illegally and had prior troubles with the law. One of them worked as a pizza delivery driver who frequently worked on the base.
A new bill was introduced in Congress to require mandatory criminal background checks to help prevent possible future attacks on military bases.
