Darn.
I hope the Obama administration doesn't have the soldiers brought up on charges for overpowering the POS instead of cowering or running away.
What were they thinking?

The report I heard on fox about 10 minutes ago that the US servicemen were elemental in stopping the attack. Reported that they recognized the sound of an AK being loaded in the head and took action. I think one or both Military members were wounded and hopefully not seriously. The 'shooter' was reported to be Northern African. We all know what that likely means.
As all early news reports, subject to change.

There go the Americans saving the French again.
reminded me of this jke:
The elderly American gentleman arrived in Paris by plane. At French Customs, he fumbled for his passport.

"You 'ave been to France before, monsieur?" the customs officer asked sarcastically. The old gent admitted that he had been to France previously.

"Zen, you should know enough to 'ave your passport ready for inspection."

The American said, "The last time I was here, I didn't have to show it."

"Impossible. You Americans alwayz 'ave to show your passports on arrival in France!"

The American senior gave the Frenchman a long hard look. Then he quietly explained.

"Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach on D-Day in '44, I couldn't find any Frenchmen to show it to."

Imagine if the U.S. Warriors weren't on board to to disarm the vermin. There's a very good chance this terrorist could have forced the surrender of the country of France and the white flag would be flying atop the Eiffel Tower right now.

By the way ... Hooray for the RED, WHITE, and BLUE !! Saving France yet again !!
