US to expel a dozen Saudi trainees in wake of Florida naval base shooting

The US will expel at least a dozen Saudi military students accused of extremist links and possessing child sexual abuse images, after an investigation into a shooting rampage by a Saudi officer in Florida, according to media reports.

In December Mohammed Alshamrani, who was in the US as part of a Saudi military training program, opened fire in a classroom at the Pensacola naval air station, killing three sailors and wounding eight other people before being shot dead by police.

While the dozen or more trainees are not accused of aiding Alshamrani, some were found to have connections to extremist movements or be in possession of child sexual abuse material, CNN reported on Saturday.

In mid-December the Pentagon said it had conducted background checks on all Saudi military personnel currently training in the US and found no “immediate threat scenario.”
Hmmmmmm!

1. So, Donny, are the victims of this shooting going to get any of that $1 billion from the Saudis?

2. A 'lucky' coincidence that his friends were there to record the shootings.
