Six Saudi nationals were detained for questioning Friday near a naval air station in Pensacola, Fla., after a Saudi gunman opened fire there, killing three people before being shot dead by officers, a senior U.S. official told Fox News. The FBI, which is leading the investigation into the shooting -- which took place Friday morning at Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola in Florida -- declined to reveal the identity of the shooter in the early stages of the investigation, but a U.S. official told Fox News the gunman was an aviation student from Saudi Arabia named Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani.

I don't know what to think...Every time I hear the FBI is investigating, I get a little alarm going off in my head. Can we trust that they'll do the right thing? Who knows? How far does the corruption go? Do the investigators hate America as much as Comey, McCabe, etal? I wish I didn't have to think about that stuff and could just trust them to do the right thing!

My first thought is, we've trained Saudi pilots for many years, so wouldn't one think that by now they have hundreds or thousands of competent pilots of their own they can use as "trainers"! We should NOT be allowing foreign military of any kind into the midst of our troops. This happens over and over. Enough! Shut down ANY programs allowing them on our Bases before we lose more of our Brave Men!

#2 is right. There is enough institutional memory in these countries to train them over there. It's done now with selected aircraft and ground systems so why do we insist on importing these guys? I've experienced first hand these so-called devout muslims at other military posts. They absolutely go wild with the freedoms of this country. Drinking, prostitutes, porn, fighting, and all so someone (brass, contractor?) can benefit. I remember 17 Afghans just walked away from language training in San Antonio some years ago. Anyone found these guys yet?

We should tell the Saudis to hire contractors and train their own pilots in Saudi Arabia.

If you're wondering about military pilot training, what about those Iraqi and Afghani forces that just can't fend for themselves, needing American boots on the ground, etc. after nearly two decades of US "training".

It's all about economics. We sell them the planes so we have to teach them to fly them. Not sure but this guy is an anomaly. Out of the hundreds we train one goes on a killing spree. Certainly worth being concerned about and investigated, but is it something to cause the end of arms sales to the Saudi's Knowing that if we don't sell them someone else will.

The UK Daily Mail has much better coverage on this one. Apparently, there were 6 Saudis in on this. Three actually recorded the shooting on a cell phone.

Shades of 9/11 where Saudis were in America receiving flight training. 18 years have gone by since 9/11, but has anything really changed? I've always wondered if it would be possible for another 9/11 to happen because security practices became lax again. Wouldn't rule it out. Wonder if the shooter was on FBI's radar at all.

If the saudi's were to use their US trained pilots to train their own new pilots, the Saudi air force would soon be reduced to crashing Piper cubs. Unless something has changed there, high profile jobs like fighter pilots are given on the basis of social status not merit. years ago a friend working over there watched them trying to fix a military helicopter by slowly swapping out virtually every replaceable part until it worked.

It’s hard to take the British prime minister, Boris Johnson, completely seriously. Just look at him: a chubby, permanently disheveled toff with an accent that comes off as a parody of an upper-class twit, topped off by that trademark mop of silver-blond hair he deliberately musses up before venturing into the public eye. Then there are those photo-op moments in his long career that seem designed to make him look supremely silly — stuck dangling in midair on a zip line with little Union Jacks waving in his hands; rugby-tackling a 10-year-old in Japan; playing tug-of-war in a publicity stunt and collapsing, suited,

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, in her normal screeching manner, just raised national hackles by saying people will starve — starve! — because the Agriculture Department, under President Donald Trump’s watch, is reeling in some of its Supplemental Nutrition Program, or food stamp, giveaways. Stupid is as stupid does, as Forrest Gump’s mom might say. Does anybody actually starve in America? Starving’s a socialist-country thing. “Famine is a disproportionately prevalent outcome of socialist systems,” as the American Enterprise Institute reported in a 2016 study.

If Democrats and their media allies thought that the impeachment of President Trump would be his undoing, I've got bad news for them: it's actually undoing them. The Democrats' favorite (fake) news channel CNN is suffering from a three-year low in ratings. According to Disrn, CNN "reached a three-year low in ratings over the Thanksgiving holidays, averaging 643,000 primetime viewers. The news outlet also saw its worst week for viewers among the 25-43 demographic." In that group, CNN only pulled 138,000 viewers. That's pathetic. Fox News, on the other hand, "posted higher ratings than CNN and MSNBC combined, averaging nearly 2.2 million viewers

A 5-year-old child in a remote Alaskan village carried a toddler a half-mile to a neighbor’s house in bitter sub-zero temperatures after they were left home alone, police said Friday. The older child was frightened after the power went out at the home, so wearing only socks and light clothing, he picked up the younger child and started walking through temperatures that dipped 31 degrees below zero in the village of Venetie, Alaska, according to state troopers. Both children suffered cold-weather injuries, according to an Alaska Department of Safety news release.

In 1858, Stephen Douglas and Abraham Lincoln debated the nature of America’s soul. Douglas argued that the Founders believed that the claim in the Declaration of Independence—“all men are created equal”—applied only to whites. They were indifferent to the perpetuation of slavery, he said. Lincoln argued that the Founders foresaw an end to slavery, that the words in the Declaration meant what they said, and that no one before Douglas had ever suggested otherwise. After a bloody civil war and a decades-long civil rights struggle were fought to vindicate Lincoln’s position, the New York Times and the Pulitzer Center are urging teachers, with the 1619 Project and attendant K-12 curriculum,

A Washington Post fact check gave Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg three Pinocchios on Thursday for cherry-picking data to suggest he "cut the black poverty rate by more than half" in South Bend, Ind., during his tenure as mayor. The Post found that Buttigieg, who made the statement during a campaign stop in Allendale, S.C., used a selective estimate of poverty rates to support his claim. Using another data set preferred by experts, he determined the black poverty rate in South Bend only fell by 6 percent during Buttigieg's time as mayor.

Washington - Congress struck a tentative bipartisan agreement that would authorize 12 weeks of paid parental leave for all federal workers, in a potentially historic deal negotiated with the White House.

Many Americans remain nonplussed over revelations in the House Intelligence Committee’s Impeachment Inquiry Report that its chairman, Adam Schiff, not only secretly subpoenaed telephone records from President Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, but also obtained responses that detailed dates and lengths of phone calls to Trump attorney Jay Sekulow, ranking committee member Devin Nunes, and Hill reporter John Solomon. That Schiff self-disclosed this action as a rightful part of his committee’s information gathering is equally stunning. Every bit as bad, it appears that national telephone carriers AT&T and Verizon, who so tout their corporate concerns about subscriber privacy, responded to such obviously politicized demands without a whimper.
