BERLIN — The killing of two U.S. airmen — and the severe wounding of two other servicemen — at the Frankfurt airport have cast doubt on German authorities’ ability to protect thousands of American military personnel in the country, and brought back unpleasant memories from the long history of terror attacks against Americans on German soil.

The attacker, 21-year-old Arid Uka, who was born in Kosovo and raised in Germany, confessed to authorities that he sought to target Americans because of the war in Afghanistan; his victims, U.S. airmen Zachary R. Cuddeback, 21, of Stanardsville, and Nicholas J. Alden, 25, of Williamston, S.C., were on their way there.
