federal assistance in the united states

Asked whether federal workers are dissenting in ways that go beyond previous party changes in the White House, Tom Malinow­ski, who was President Barack Obama’s assistant secretary of state for democracy, human rights and labor, said, sarcastically: “Is it unusual? . . . There’s nothing unusual about the entire national security bureaucracy of the United States feeling like their commander in chief is a threat to U.S. national security. That happens all the time. It’s totally usual. Nothing to worry about.”

The US Air Force has confirmed that a B-52H Stratofortress crashed at approximately 8:30 a.m. on the Andersen flightline. “All seven aircrew members have safelyegressed the aircraft. No injuries have been reported. Emergency responders are on scene,” a released stated. “The B-52 was deployed to Andersen AFB from Minot, North Dakota, as part of the DoD’s continuous bomber presence mission in the Pacific. The aircrew are members from the 69th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron and were performing a routine training mission.”

Guam Fire Chief Joey San Nicolas confirms GFD received a call for additional support for firefighting capabilities and assisting units from Andersen Air Force Base in response to a military aircraft crash on base, reportedly a B-52. San Nicolas confirms they are executing a Memorandum of Understanding between military, federal, and local fire emergency services.

The Office of Civil Defense is also coordinating efforts to send a water tanker to the site. According to Guam International Airport spokesperson Rolenda Faasuamalie, there has been no impact to GIAA Operations.

The Governor’s Office has also issued a statement “We assure the public this does not appear to be an attack, and we highly discourage anyone from spreading assumptions, or any information that does not come from Civil Defense or the military itself.”
