Air Force Investigating Worrisome ‘Intrusion’ at Joint Base Andrews

The site is crucial for the President and Vice President’s air travel.

It has been nearly a month since the attempted insurrection at the US Capitol, and, in the aftermath, there are renewed concerns about the threat of extremism within the ranks of our local and federal authorities.

Much of this concern arose in the hours after an angry mob infiltrated the Capitol back on January 6th.  Social media, along with elements of the mainstream media, repeatedly broadcast unnerving images of Capitol Police officers either being jovial with the invaders, or even assisting them.  Pictures of one officer taking a selfie with the rioters were simply too much to bear.

The Capitol Police launched a number of investigations into the incident almost immediately.

This week, likely on account of the concerning images out of the Capitol, the Pentagon announced that it is ordering the military to “stand down” for 60 days, in order to investigate “extremism” with their ranks.

Now, amid all of this political tension, the Air Force is investigating a worrisome breach at one of their most secure sites.

The United States Air Force is investigating an incident of an intruder at Joint Base Andrews, a military facility in Maryland’s Prince George’s County that houses Air Force One, the aircraft that carries the president.

“An unauthorized individual gained access to Joint Base Andrews. The incident is under investigation,” a Joint Base Andrews spokesperson told ABC News in a statement late Thursday. “The Air Force Office of Special Investigations (OSI) is lead on this investigation. Any requests for information related to the incident can be referred to OSI.”

The OSI did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment and additional details.

It’s unclear when the incident occurred or whether the individual was able to reach any aircraft on the flight line.

Joint Base Andrews is one of the most well-guarded military facilities in the United States, on account of its integral role in the President and Vice President’s air travel.
