WASHINGTON - Nearly 175 Saudi Arabian military aviation students have been grounded as part of a safety stand-down after a Saudi Air Force lieutenant shot and killed three people last week at a U.S. Navy base in Florida, U.S. officials told Reuters on Tuesday.
The FBI has said U.S. investigators believe Saudi Air Force Second Lieutenant Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, 21, acted alone when he attacked a U.S. Navy base in Pensacola, Florida on Friday, before he was fatally shot by a deputy sheriff.
A safety stand-down and operational pause commenced Monday for Saudi Arabian aviation students, said Lieutenant Andriana Genualdi, a Navy spokeswoman.
Another U.S. official said the grounding was to help Saudi students prepare to eventually restart their training and similar procedures would have been taken if such an incident took place in a U.S. military squadron.
Genualdi said the grounding included three different military facilities: Naval Air Station Pensacola, Naval Air Station Whiting Field and Naval Air Station Mayport, all in Florida.
She added that while it was unclear when the Saudi students would be allowed to fly again, their classroom training was expected to resume soon. She added that aviation training had resumed for students from other countries.

Is CAIR too busy partying with “impeachment” Rats to notice?
Some good sense, for once.
Next, send them home.
Ge them the f-— out!
Mohammad didn’t “act alone”.
Islam is anti-American, anti-Constitutional, anti-Personal Liberty. etc.
A Dennis Miller joke I enjoyed probably too soon after 9/11:
“You know who I feel sorry for — Young middle-eastern men who really really want to begin a career in crop-dusting.”
Good idea to do this BEFORE one of those jihadis crashes his aircraft into the White House.
Since a battalion is typically 300 to 800 soldiers, 175 is a half a battalion.
Why is a half battalion of muslim soldiers here?
Ship them all home.
Do their training over there.
There are NO safe muslims.
Acted alone. Yep.
How can the FBI conclude that Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani acted alone when three of his fellow Islamists were there videoing the shootings? (Rhetorical question).
They don’t care about being grounded, they just want to be able to take off.
USA is insane to train enemy militaries from anti-American thug dictatorship regimes, especially the House of Saud which has been funding (on a massive scale) one of the most dangerous Muslim hate sects in USA and Europe for years and years already. I pray PDJT will straighten out the Saudi regime or else end their funding of hate-and-terrorism preaching mosques, close all the ones they are running or funding already, and kick them the He** out of America.
Long term good relations with the innocent peoples there, YES! Any further cooperation, training, arming of the terrorism-promoting House of Saud...no way! imho this not only endangers America seriously from within, but it is at its core evil and shameful.
Buncha islamaphobic racists. Everybody knows islam is a religion of peace, everybody. It’s settled science and stuff. Did I mention ya’lls racist?

I want to know where the “misplaced” Saudi pukes are that “disappeared” from their base shortly after the murders at Pensacola.
How can that be?
Stop training them, period.
After all these decades, if they can’t train their own pilots, then they have zero rights to any kind of an air
Quit enabling a bunch of oil rich playboys with their go-fasties.
Pack the up and send them home.
Screen them all, and those who pass, send them to US Marine Boot Camp to re-qualify for flight training.
Or train them back in Umma Country.
175 of them swarming over Pensacola NAS. Such bullshit. Do they outnumber the US Navy there?
Our government is a sworn enemy of what most American people want. This does nothing to protect America to have them there. Soon 175 camel jockeys will be zooming in the skies over Florida again! Does it take one of them to do a kamikaze dive into the bleachers of a Gators or Dolphins game to get our occupation government to act?
