(RightWing.org) – America experienced a year unlike any other in recent memory with the nation’s health officials racing to distribute vaccines, hopefully putting a quick end to the COVID-19 pandemic. The country awaits the highly disputed 2020 presidential election results, and early voting has already begun for Georgia’s January 5 runoff elections for its two US Senate seats.
Now, Anchorage Alaska’s Ted Stevens International Airport faced a dramatic situation after an unnamed man called in a bomb threat shortly after 9:00 pm local time on Wednesday, December 16.

Airport police located the man’s bag based on his description, and the terminal was swiftly evacuated. The Anchorage bomb squad mobilized a robot and, by midnight, gave the all-clear. The airport resumed normal services shortly afterward.
Law enforcement officials arrested the man who reportedly made the threat. However, they did not release his name or indicate any possible motive for his actions. He faces charges related to making terrorist threats and misconduct concerning a controlled subject.
