On Saturday, a U.S. official reported how the Saudi national that killed three people on Friday morning at a Florida naval air station allegedly hosted a dinner party earlier in the week.
The shooter, Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, and several others watched videos of mass shootings.
Alshamrani, who was identified as a member of the Saudi military participating in a flight training program for foreign military personnel at Naval Air Station Pensacola, was killed by law enforcement after he fatally shot three people in what investigators are trying to determine was an attack motivated by terrorism.
While the FBI has declined to name the suspect or elaborate on a possible motive, a U.S. official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told The Associated Press that federal investigators told him Alshamrani hosted a dinner party earlier in the week where he and three others watch videos of mass shootings.

It wasn’t immediately clear if the shooter acted alone but the U.S. official said authorities also told him that one Saudi student – who was at the dinner party – stood outside the building recording while the shooting took place. Two others were said to have watched from a car.

These are supposed to be the best and brightest military minds that Saudi Arabia has, and they are spending a lot of money sending them over here to learn how to use the weaponry that they buy from us to defend themselves from Iran, etc.
And they do not even have the mental ability to separate themselves from the one in their group that they knew was going to execute a terrorist attack on the people who are training them.
Six of these guys agreed enough with the attacker to not do anything about it beforehand, attended a little pep rally for the event, and were casual enough to stand their videotaping the event as it happened, for kicks and posterity.
That’s stupidity on a level that is too great to measure. Hate us or love us; we should not be selling these people weapons because they lack the maturity and cognitive ability to use them. Heck, they are not qualified to operate a pair of scissors.
It makes you wonder, there are only less than 10,000 Saudis in the US, but there are close to half a million Iranians. Yet, Saudis seemingly commit most of the terrorism, and we call them our friends, and we call Iranians our enemies. No doubt, Iranains are evil, but isn’t it time to re-evaluate our love for Saudis?
I am so sick of the refusal to call a thing what it is. “Terrorism” is not a motive; it is a result. The real motive in all these cases, which shall not be spoken, is a religious conviction that the best places in Heaven are reserved for those who die in the process of slaying infidels.
