I guess all the bluster about keeping “dangerous” refugees out was just that, bluster. While the front door was locked, our Saudi “allies” planned and carried out an attack in Pensacola FL last December.
“Last week, Attorney General William Barr and the F.B.I. said that data from cellphones of a Saudi Air Force trainee who killed three U.S. sailors and wounded eight others at a Navy air base in Pensacola, Fla., on Dec. 6 confirmed that it was an act of foreign-planned “terrorism.”
“The phone data “definitively establishes” that the trainee, Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, had “significant ties to Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula — not only before the attack, but before he even arrived in the United States” in August 2017. He had actually joined the Saudi military to carry out a “special operation.”
“The Trump administration clearly had no idea what was happening under its nose.
“As The Washington Post noted: After the attack, investigators found evidence that 17 fellow Saudi students “had shared Islamist militant or anti-American material on social media, and others had possessed or shared child pornography. As a result, 21 cadets from Saudi Arabia were dis-enrolled from the training program and sent home.”
The IG that was canned was looking into Pompeo’s attempts to circumvent Congress in arms sales to the Saudi’s. In addition to using employees to run personal errands. And using taxpayer monies to host what were obviously high end “rallies” from big donors for his political aspirations.
Of course this is an opinion, and opinions may differ.
Do facts, though?
