Six Saudis Arrested For Questioning After Pensacola Shooting – Three Were Filming Attack

12527

Six Saudi nationals were taken into custody for questioning near the Florida naval base where an Air Force trainee – also from Saudi Arabia – opened fire Friday morning, killing three before a sheriff’s deputy shot and killed him.

According to the New York Times, three of the Saudis were filming the attack. It is unknown whether they were students at the base, or whether they are connected to the gunman.

The shooting spanned two floors in a classroom, according to Sheriff David Morgan of Escambia Country. Two deputies were shot in the ensuing gun battle and are expected to recover.

The gunman, identified as Saudi Air Force second lieutenant Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, used a locally bought Glock 45 9mm handgun with an extended magazine, and was carrying between four and six more magazines.

In his last message on Twitter confirmed by AFP, Alshamrani wrote that America is a nation of evil.

 

The FBI is leading the investigation into the incident at Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola in Florida, and initially withheld Alshamrani’s name.

He was allegedly a student enrolled in a Navy training program designed for ” immersing international students in our U.S. Navy training and culture ” to help “build partnership capacity for both the present and for the years ahead,” accoring to Fox News, citing 2017 comments by Cmdr. Bill Gibson, who is the center’s officer in charge.

“These relationships are truly a win-win for everyone involved,” he added at the time.

Governor Rick Scott (R-FL) called for a “full review” of the Navy training programs in the wake of the shooting, while investigators have said they are exploring whether the attack was an act of organized terrorism.

“I’m very concerned that the shooter in Pensacola was a foreign national training on a U.S. base. Today, I’m calling for a full review of the U.S. military programs to train foreign nationals on American soil. We shouldn’t be providing military training to people who wish us harm,” said Scott.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper told reporters Friday that although his first priority is supporting the ongoing investigation and determining the shooter’s motives, he also said: “I want to make sure we’re doing our due diligence to understand what are our procedures” concerning the training programs.

Is it sufficient [et cetera, et cetera] and it may not be — it may be the vetting — are we also screening persons coming to make sure that they have, you know, their life in order, you know, their mental health is adequate,” Esper said. “So we need to look at all that.”

Esper referred to the shooter as a Saudi national who was a second lieutenant in flight training.

Sources told Fox News that the scene of the shooting — a classroom, where students usually spend three months at the beginning of the program — indicated that the shooter was a student who was “early” in his training.Fox News

Approximately 1,500 pilots are enrolled in the Naval training program – with Saudis having attended courses at the Pensacola site since the 1970s. According to the report, as many as 20 students from the Islamic Republic are in any given class – with many of them belonging to the Royal Family.

Following the shooting, the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Foreign Affairs conveyed “its deep distress,” offering “its sincere condolences to the victims’ families, and wishes the injured a speedy recovery.”

The perpetrator of this horrific attack does not represent the Saudi people whatsoever. The American people are held in the highest regard by the Saudi people,” reads a statement from the Ministry. “Building upon the strong ties between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United States of America, and in continuation of the ongoing cooperation between the two countries’ security agencies, the Saudi security agencies will provide full support to the US authorities to investigate the circumstances of this crime.”

President Trump, meanwhile, relayed King Salman of Saudi Arabia’s “sincere condolences,” and gave his “sympathies to the families and friends of the warriors who were killed and wounded in the attack…”

“The King said that the Saudi people are greatly angered by the barbaric actions of the shooter, and that this person in no way shape or form represents the feelings of the Saudi people who love the American people,” said Trump.

  1. Saudi Arabia was responsible for World Trade Center bombardment in 9/11 and bush new it need to pull troops out no one else from that country. No more islam

      • Well the Navy Petty Officer, US citizen, on security watch on the Sub at Pearl, used his legally possessed rifle to kill/wound the shipyard workers, and the sidearm to kill himself. Absolutely no comparison with the Saudi terrorist in Pcola. Word in HI is that the PO was facing NJP….Non-Judicial-Punishment (by the Navy) for some earlier infraction, and he was upset (PO’d) at his chain of command, on the Sub, as he was a crewmember of that FBM.

        • How did the navy allow a nut like this to be a crew member on a SSBN, with 24 nuclear-armed FBM missiles and enough firepower to destroy a country. There is something wrong with the Navy’s process to identify potential crazies like this. My point is not to compare the two cases, but if you allow servicemen to arm themselves on our military bases, a deranged one can more easily cause mayhem. Keep weapons off bases except for MPs or security personnel, and keep them out of classrooms. The geniuses that think teachers should be armed are stupid; one deranged teacher can kill dozens of students. We would be putting the fox in the chicken coop.

          • Paul, keep your opinions to yourself until the investigation is over. You are a problem, NOT a solution. God Bless Texas, God Bless America and God Bless President and First Lady Trump. hooyah

          • This shooting was NOT at a school “by a teacher” – -it was at a US Naval Air Station “by a terrorist”. Remember the 2009 shooting, at Fort Hood, Tx, when Nidal Hassan killed 13 military members? Well, he was NOT a “teacher”, so you’re comparing apples with oranges. As for “foreign trainees” – -I would say either find a much better, fool proof way to vet them, OR “dump the program” entirely.

    • Get these Saudi and other Muslim nation people Out of Our Country ! This bs having them train here is ludicrous
      I don’t think we should even be supplying weapons!

  2. “We need new/MORE gun laws!!”?? How did this ‘peaceful’ religious’ person get a gun?! Or who bought it for him? 3 of his brothers were filming the decimation. Will the FBI come clean or are they going to be sending each other love letters/emails and lying to the US citizens again.

    • Maggie, I’m not sure if It’s about the gun laws. Terrorist, criminals will always find a way to get guns. UK tighten down on gun laws. And now look they are using knifes. What our President needs to do along with the Politicians is to put in place a BILL that will NO longer allow these people to come into our country and train. I am so FN tired of our Politicians allowing other countries into our schools only to cause harm upon us. Evidently our Politicians haven’t learned from 911!!!!! Take a look at CAIR Muslims in California like I said before I read many times that they are affiliated with HAMAS and they are affiliated with terrorist. That’s why CAIR said in a video a couple weeks ago that their plan is to have 20-40 Muslims in the Capital house and they want one as our President. So SAD that our Politicians only care for our votes and not the care or the importance of our country. CAIR is a THREAT!!!! But they keep allowing these people I. Our country. I hated so much now that I voted for OBAMA.

  3. /More Islamists especially Saudis are coming out of the woodwork as we get closer to the 20th anniversary of 9/11 Eid Al Kufar. They want to make the point from their Quran in Surah 30:1-14 that Islam has defeated America the evil empire and they are taking the victory of the believers to subject us to their wicked Wahhabi Islamic imperial empire.

    • These people are not only infiltrating our US Government, but they are infiltrating our US Military and being trained. YOU CAN NOT TRUST THESE PEOPLE!! This international cooperation and BS is Garbage. They will use this bulls*t ‘Training and culture’ and ‘international cooperation to DESTROY US!!They can’t be trusted. They always have another agenda than what they speak. Their mission is to ‘kill the imbeciles’ as they claim. We need to listen and take action. No more phony “students’ learning from us how to take us out.

  4. I went to Iraq twice, and we Americans can not and will not learn from our mistakes. We keep trusting foreigners to work or study along our side, but veting these people is poorly done. When I was stationed in Iraq we had cooks, mechanics, custodians, working and moving around our base like everyone. That made me very nervous and scared, that one of them would turn against us. And it really happened, turned out it happened at another base. Why do we keep doing this. Soldiers and families are at close risk not politicians. Stop this integration bullshit, Congress and keep Americans safe.

    • when I was in Lebanon they asked our military to enter the base to do some peaceful negotiations. They entered and threw a bomb instead. They can’t be trusted. Their philosophy is that if you’re dumb enough to believe their lies its YOUR fault. They are blameless

    • Noe:I am a 74 year old disabled by Agent Orange Vietnam veteran and the world had few concerns in my time of service about Islam . It was viewed as a local problem when the Shah was overthrown by Islamic Radicals and by 1981 we were seeing the Muslim Brotherhood rising here and infiltrating places and observing facilities they should NEVER have been allowed in. The same is True Of CAIR. Then , Obama weakened our military, deliberately, eradicated choices and dissed Traditional AMERICAN values, Christian faith upon which the entire nation was founded, a work ethic, acceptance of responsibility or Accountability and failure , especially for the left , was always someone else’s Fault. Obama appointed 14 “Czars,” who were Muslim Brotherhood members. They , as far as I know are STILL in those appointed positions and should NOT be. It is totally irresponsible of our system, TO ALLOW UNVETTED AND SUPPOSE, “ALLIES,” TO TRAIN WITH US AND LEARN OUR WAYS TO BE USED AGAINST AMERICAN CITIZENS WHILE THE DEMOCRATS LOOK TO END FREE SPEECH DISSENTING OPINIONS AND THE 2ND AMENDMENT WHICH GUARANTEES THE REST AND POSSIBLY WITH “OPEN BORDERS,” U.N. POLICY, ATTEMPTING TO IMPLEMENT AGENDA 21 DESTROYING OUR SOVEREIGNTY Why are the Saudis considered friendly if it suits their purposes to spy on is from within? Do not forget that 19 of the perpetrators of 9/11/01 WERE Saudi nationals! WE NEED TO END THIS CHARADE OF THE LUNATIC LEFT WHICH HAS RESULTED IN DOMESTIC ATTACKS NOW AND BEFORE AT U.S. MIITARY BASES. REMEMBER MAJOR NADAL HASSAN AT FORT HOOD AND NOW THE MUSLIM IN PENSACOLA AND THE SHOOTING IN INDIANA THE DAY BEFORE!
      If we vote every Progressive out of office, it would be a very good start to curing what ails us ALL, regardless of race, color, or creed which they exploit for political purposes and use of the Marxist smear technique to discredit, demean and destroy all opposing views. If we remove the enemies within they represent, we will also reduce the effects of the enemies without! I have had a degree in Government for nearly 53 years and had it when I served in the 1968 Tet Offensive, followed by 2 years as staff a the former Walter Reed Army Medical Center , then in 1969 on Georgia Ave, N.W. in Washington, D.C, which was a SWAMP , even then but, is a thousand times WORSE, TODAY~!

      • You put it so well,Patriot. I too was medic during Nam. 1961-1967, as a reservist stateside , I helped treat many combat wounded that returned. The world as a whole has turned its back on our CREATOR and only True and Living GOD. The return of CHRIST is imminent !

    • Maybe, just maybe, they’re sick and tired of us butting into their affairs. We never belonged in Iraq just like we never belonged on Viet Nam or Afghanistan. None of them are a “threat to US security”. Our actions in the Middle East provide a training ground for ISIS. And Frump’s support of the Saudi regime only encourages their radicals.

    • Some of the largest military compound….air stations, and support facilities, built by the Saudi’s for our 5, now 6 branches of the US military, are located within the Kingdom…..We fought the 2 Gulf wars out of those bases! Ally 2nd only to Israeli’s. Research before post?

    • Exactly!! Send them back home. We don’t need to train them to kill us. They can’t be trusted. I have rental property. i had a “student” from Iran wanting to rent my property. He said he was studying Nuclear Engineering at University of Michigan. I asked him what he intends to do with his degree. He openly said his government sent him to our country and to U of M to LEARN HOW TO MAKE N BOMBS!! (I didn’t rent to him). We accommodate all these foreigners with bad intentions and thats how they get their training to orchestrate more “911’s”. We need to STOP supplying them with free training to destroy us!

      • Another muslim “student” at University of Michigan got himself a job in a highly classified lab. He did not want to work when other people were there–preferred to ‘work alone’ at NIGHT. Doesn’t this raise a RED flag to someone? or are we afraid to be accused of discrimination in this far left town? This guy ended up sending out ANTHRAX to people he wanted to kill in other states; then he disappeared somewhere in the US after he did his dirty work. We must realize their philosophy: ‘if people are stupid enough to BELIEVE them it is their own fault’, and the killer is blameless (they believe they did a ‘good’ deed if they were able to trick people into believing them). Mothers are PROUD of their sons who do ‘suicide bombings’ and kill a crowd of people.

  5. #1. Our Governor is Ron DeSantis.

    #2. Having foreigners ‘train’ here on American soil has proved to be a devastating mistake in numerous situations. Stop the madness! We cannot learn from these people from their delusional evil minds they possess. They only slither among us learning our ways to then destroy America. Again bring us to our knees!

    God bless America
    God bless President Trump 🇺🇸

  6. What did towel head Omar state about 9/11, just some people doing something…MP’s should be posted at every class room where we have these primates, because due to the fact the Demorats pushed this program to train these idiots. Let these parasites blinde side us on our own turf just like Ft. Hood. Pull our brothers out of these rat hole countries and make glass out of the sand, we can retrieve the oil in about twenty years…

    • No, Trump expanded this program because he loves the Saudis because they give him big personal pay-offs for his hotels. (Trump Tower in Riyadh, Saudis always stay in Trump hotels) No President has supported Saudi Arabia more than Trump. More corruption from comrade Trumpski.

      • Paul, you unintelligent, under-educated, inexperienced liberal mouthpiece. Business is as usual with your ilk. Blame somebody you don’t even know and with information that is made up by liberal media and democrat hatchet mouths. Lies, no proof, but, that doesn’t bother you. Trump didn’t BOW to Saudi Arabia like your miserable moron did when he was supposed to be President. Paul, you weren’t there and you aren’t ever going to see the truth even if it smacks you in the butt and breaks your nose. God Bless Texas, God Bless America and God Bless President and First Lady Trump. hooyah

        • And you wouldn’t consider any information that does not agree with your preconceived ideas. Anyone who disagrees with you is “unintelligent, under-educated, and an inexperienced liberal mouthpiece”. Frump is supportive of MBS. I’m not sure God cares about TX, America and certainly not Trump, who he did not appoint.

  7. We need to send these six fucker’s heads back, all wrapped up in their head towels, to where they came from. Ishamic’s have, are, and will always pull shit like this, then profess how sorry they are, all the while laughing behind our backs. Their funky book teaches all this.

    • I was in Kuwait at a party once where the men were sitting around laughing about how they control our Stock Market: They get together and invest in a stock, keep pumping it up with more of their multimillions; Stock keeps rising, after Americans jump in to the investment, then they jerk all their money out at once, leaving Americans holding the bag when the stock dumps. They laughed and laughed about their strategy. They are SO evil!!

  8. When will we learn that friendship with Saudi Arabia is not in our best interest. In the past we needed a business relationship because of oil and our borrowing to fund our national debt. Since we are self sufficient in oil let us work on paying off our debt. Pass a balanced budget amendment.

    • I AGREE!!! Stop letting them in; Send them BACK! All AMERICANS should agree as well. These people will take over our country without us even realizing what is happening. They have already infiltrated our country and been placed in our Government and our Military. We need to one our eyes and STOP THIS SHOW, NOW!! Deport Soros and anyone else funding this B.S. Saudis have plenty of money to fund any kind of destruction they want to do to the USA. God Bless America and TRUMP!

  9. Maggie, what you, other liberals and low information “types” don’t understand is as follows “PLEASE PAY ATTENTION”! Bad people will always be able to get guns to kill with no matter how many gun laws are made! They will steal them, buy them off the streets from gangs and criminals and many other ways! So if guns are taken away that would be used to protect you, who in hell is going to protect you from the bad guys. It takes far too long for the police to get to a scene and you would be very dead by the time they arrive!
    Taking guns is not the solution! Guns don’t kill people, people kill people! Shooters of innocent people is a people problem and must be dealt with as such.
    The Constitution guarantees us the right to bear arms and that will never change! You Dems are going to have to help us fix the problem because you are not going to be able to disarm America! Besides look at the history of what happens to countries whose citizens are disarmed, they lose their freedom to tyrants! You don’t want to be around guns, go to a country where the citizens have none, you will be more than ready to come home!

    • To The Real M: Yeah, I forgot. The UK, New Zealand, Australia, Norway and Sweden all have strict gun laws and they’re all governed by tyrants! Power to the people. More guns. Arm everyone. You pitiful excuse for a brain dead human.

  10. Its not just the born and raised rag head you have to worry about. It is the idiots that willingly convert to muslim right here in our neighborhoods. They are the enemy, the bred and born here converts.Skin color matters not. The are among you every where you go and have no fear of you. Confront them and they throw legal crap . They use our constitution and good will against us. This OMAR scum that was elected to congress is a perfect example of the traitors among us.

  11. Subject: SHARIA LAWS SHOULD NEVER BECOME AMERICA’S LAWS

    Americans that are Christians and love Jesus Christ should never let Muslims take over the power of our country. Just take a look at what the Islamic Ideology of Sharia Laws wants to have in the USA. Nobody in their right mind should allow these things happen. Christians believe in Jesus Christ the son of God and we pray to God. Muslims believe in Muhammad as their God which is Allah, a false God, he is not the same as Jesus Christ.

    According to the Sharia law,(the religion of peace?):
    • A man can marry an infant girl and consummate the marriage when she is 9 years old.
    • Girls’ clitoris should be cut (Muhammad’s words, Book 41, Kitab Al-Adab, Hadith 5251).
    • Theft is punishable by amputation of the hands (Quran 5:38).
    • Criticizing or denying any part of the Quran is punishable by death.
    • Criticizing Muhammad or denying that he is a prophet is punishable by death.
    • Criticizing or denying Allah is punishable by death (see Allah moon god).
    • A Muslim who becomes a non-Muslim is punishable by death (See Compulsion).
    • A non-Muslim who leads a Muslim away from Islam is punishable by death.
    • A non-Muslim man who marries a Muslim woman is punishable by death.
    • A woman or girl who has been raped cannot testify in court against her rapist(s).
    • Testimonies of 4 male witnesses are required to prove rape of a female (Quran 24:13).
    • A woman or girl who alleges rape without producing 4 male witnesses is guilty of adultery.
    • A woman or girl found guilty of adultery is punishable by death (see “Islamophobia”).
    • A male convicted of rape can have his conviction dismissed by marrying his victim.
    • Muslim men have sexual rights to any woman/girl not wearing the Hijab (see Taharrush).
    • A woman can have 1 husband, who can have up to 4 wives; Muhammad can have more.
    • A man can beat his wife for insubordination (see Quran 4:34 and Religion of Peace).
    • A man can unilaterally divorce his wife; a wife needs her husband’s consent to divorce.
    • A divorced wife loses custody of all children over 6 years of age or when they exceed it.
    • A woman’s testimony in court, allowed in property cases, carries ½ the weight of a man’s.
    • A female heir inherits half of what a male heir inherits (see Mathematics in Quran).
    • A woman cannot speak alone to a man who is not her husband or relative.
    • Meat to eat must come from animals that have been sacrificed to Allah – i.e., be “Halal.”
    • Muslims should engage in Taqiyya and lie to non-Muslims to advance Islam.

  12. The SAUDIS are TREACHEROUS ARAB MEANS TO LAY IN WAIT TO AMBUSH. MORE INFORMATION IS COMING OUT THREE SAUDIS FILMING WHILE TERRORIST KILL HIS CODE NAME RISING SERPENT ALLAH IS THE DEVIL ISLAM IS OF WAR NOT PEACE. WORKERS AT MANDALAY BAY HOTEL IN LAS VEGAS SAID SAUDIS HAD BOOKED TOP FLOORS ABOVE STEPHEN PADDOCK THERE WHERE MULTIPLE SHOOTERS IN LAS VEGAS MASSIVE COVER UP. SAUDIS CAN NOT BE TRUSTED SUNNI AND SHIA ARE INSANE SATANIC ISLAM DECEITFUL TO THERE CORE.

  13. How many Ft. Hoods will we go through before we end this BS alliance with the Saudis and their filthy ilk ? Islam is nothing if not pure evil !!!

  14. ALL 6 should be escorted out of the USA and any and all future training of Saudi military should be stopped and if they wish to be trained, the Saudi government should pay for them to be trained in Saudi Arabia. Based on the 911 attacks and now this, we did not go thru 2 Pearl Harbors and we don’t need to start a trend!

  15. OMAR and TALIB are probably feeling sorry for the SHOOTER, send them back on the same plane as the other 6 MUSLIM TERRORISTS. Thats where they belong!

  16. A. Allow ZERO Muslims regardless of where they are from to even enter any U.S. base much less be stationed there.
    B. Zero means American Muslims as well. BTW: American and Muslim, now that’s an oxymoron.
    C. Arm all American Military while they are on Base.
    Granted this will not guarantee some sympathizer won’t do the same thing, but it will lessen that possibility. GD it, lets start using our brains and route out and kill, jail and/or deport any and all sympathizers.
    D. Make Congree and the Senate READ THE Koran, take a test about it and act in the American peoples interest instead of their own twisted version of PC!

  17. How did he get the gun? As a retired US Marine with my residence in NC who visited my mom in Florida I was told at a pawnshop that I couldn’t buy a pistol, even though I had a valid NC concealed carry pistol permit! He should be prohibited from having a pistol!

  18. Ah, hello? This guy and the others should have raised a BIG red flag. How come Homeland Security was/is so inept on this? And why are we training these Saudi foreigners in the first place? They use this training against America just like on 9/11. Someone, in gov’t., needs to stay awake, they obviously are turning a blind eye.

  19. very Interesting
    when you dont know history you are doomed to repeat it
    the name of the German Nazi party was the National Socialist Democratic Party
    DEMOCRATS and look what they did to the world
    The democrats in Congress are truing to do exactly the same thing as in 1935 only government sponsored news is allowed all guns taken away from its citizens the rights of the individual rights are quickly being removed by them ,they feel the Constitution of the United States is an old worn out piece of paper
    they are trying to remove a duly elected President of the US nd they go into hysterics when they are questioned about any thing the Speaker of the Houses melt down just recently was great evidence of that
    the Individual leading the farce looks as he needs to be in an insane asylum instead of the US Congress
    the news media will be the first on the chopping block if they manage to take over listen to then TRY to scream then but hey they wont be allowed to
    every thing in this country is pointing to another war of citizen against citizen a civil war again
    so afraid of what happens with the 2020 election if we dont like who i s elected do we have to accept it NO

  20. Have we learned nothing from 9/11 ? Our tax dollars are being used to teach Saudi Arabian people to fly planes, DUH! They hate us because we are not Muslims. They kill us because we’re stupid. This insanity has to stop!

  21. How was he allowed to buy a gun? That is something that should be outlawed. No foreign national should be allowed.
    Also, Saudi Arabia should keep their families hostage while their pilots are here training.
    Better yet, let them be trained in their crap country.

  22. It isn’t the “Deep State”.
    It isn’t the “Democrat Party”.
    It isn’t the “CIA-DOJ-FBI Mass Media”
    It’s the Jews, Stupid.
    You know-the ones who really did 911.

  23. Is it that he’s a Saudi or the fact he’s a Muslim. Can I say it’s because he’s a Muslim and not have to read how I’m I’m an islamophobe. In our media, the Muslims are a sacred cow.

  24. Probably a program dems started in hopes of incidents like this to push gun control! Do really believe all the mass shootings are random?

  25. Sooo, we sell guns to foreign nationals……………what about the ”background check”. It should be illegal for a foreign national, green card or otherwise, to purchase a weapon. The 2nd amendment applies only to American Citizens. The Constitution is for Americans……..not Saudi nationals or Mexicans or anyone but an American Citizens.

    Another FAILURE OF THE ”gun control” nonsense

  26. Amazing and confusing that with all the Communication going on with Social media and the suspicious nature of this shooter’s posts ,No one saw a “Red Flag ” but people like Lying ,Corrupt , Sneaky , Untrustworthy, Adam Schiff gets Phone Records without a Warrant and exposes personal ,private items of persons for “Political Reasons”, the CIA,NSA,FBI,and all the other alphabet government agencies didn’t see this coming from a Foreign National who had “Issues” with the United States of America ! After 9/11 one would think we would proceed with more than just caution concerning “Flight Training” of a Military Foreign National
