June 8, 2015 - A Wichita, Kansas, man pleaded
guilty to attempting to explode a car bomb at
the airport in
Wichita. Terry Lee Loewen,
Wichita, pleaded guilty
today to one count of attempting to use a weapon
of mass destruction.
Loewen was arrested in December 2013 when he
tried to enter the grounds of the Wichita Mid-Continent Airport
for the purpose of exploding a bomb. (The
airport recently was renamed Wichita Dwight D.
Eisenhower National Airport).
“Terry Loewen utilized his privileged airport
access to attempt a terrorist attack in Wichita,” said Assistant
Attorney General Carlin. “Detecting, disrupting
and holding accountable those who wish to harm
Americans remains our highest priority.”
