Texas: Man Detained at Airport Is a Green Beret

The New York Times on January 3, 2012 released the following:

“By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A man arrested Saturday with explosives at Midland International Airport is an Army-trained demolitions expert and member of the elite Green Berets who served in Afghanistan, military officials said Monday. Trey Scott Atwater, 30, was being held on a federal charge of attempting to board an aircraft with an explosive, the F.B.I. said. He is an Army sergeant first class, assigned as an instructor at the John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School at Ft. Bragg, N.C. Sergeant Atwater was detained after a routine Transportation Security Administration agent noticed he had explosives in his carry-on luggage while trying to board an American Eagle flight to Dallas, the F.B.I. said. Michael Martinez, an F.B.I. spokesman, declined to say what type of explosive Sergeant Atwater was carrying, or the quantity. It is not known whether he was in uniform at the time.”
