The bomber struck shortly after noon in front of a U.S. military base. It is said that his name is Noah Green, age 25. CNN reported on Saturday (April 3rd), citing a federal source.

He posted a few weeks ago that the federal government was targeting him with “mind control.” Less than two hours before the attack, Green posted several Instagram stories.
