Do you know how often I heard this when I lived in Plattsburgh? All the damn time! I would like someone to please explain how a base in Plattsburgh would aid against terrorism?
I don’t get people’s reasoning. They are just mad the base got closed and Plattsburgh’s economy went down the hole. They need a reason that it should have been kept open beyond is was good for our local economy. So yelling “terrorism” is the go to reason our government was stupid to close down an old and obsolete base.
Aside from the impact on the economy, all I ever hear about is how dudes from the base would go out drinking and rough up locals
Plattsburgh was a part of Strategic Air Command. Their mission was nuclear war with the USSR. Beyond that, they refueled jets. Not particularly relevant to terrorism….
