    TAMPA, Fla. — An AWOL serviceman arrested as he tried to enter MacDill Air Force Base with weapons and ammunition in his vehicle has been charged with desertion and will be turned over to the Army, base officials reported Tuesday evening.


    Spc. Christopher Paul Kilburn had been stationed with Alpha Company, 1-16th 1st Infantry Division, Fort Riley, Kan., a media release from the base said. It did not specify when he left. Kilburn will be turned over to Army officials, and additional charges will be pending as the investigation continues.


    The U.S. Attorney's Office will decide how to charge Kilburn's companion, Palm Beach resident Micah Noel Goodier.


    The couple was arrested Monday evening, when they tried to gain access to the base. The base's public affairs office did not know if either person had an attorney.


    Air Force Col. Dave Cohen said during a news conference earlier Tuesday that it doesn't appear to have been a terrorism attempt.

    Yeah i seen this story on both Fox and MSNB, I don't think they were terrorists, just nuts, but of course further evidence could arise which shows they intended to do something stupid.

    IF evidence comes to light that they planned on shooting the base up or something, terrorism, you bet.

    I don't know - probably not. Hell, for all anybody knows, he may have just wanted to go hunting. The way people react to any and every thing these days, what happened here doesn't surprise me in the least.
