Attorney General William Barr announced Monday the December mass shooting by a Saudi national that left three American sailors dead in Pensacola, Florida was an act of terrorism.
Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, a second lieutenant in the Royal Saudi Air Force, shot and killed three U.S. navy sailors Ensign Joshua Kaleb Watson, 23, Airman Mohammed Haitham, 19, and Airman Apprentice Cameron Walters, 21 and wounded at least eight others at the Naval Air Station Pensacola. Haitham and Walters received posthumous promotions, and Acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas Modly praised them for displaying the finest warrior ethos and quick decision-making that undoubtedly saved many lives.
Alshamrani was shot and killed by responding deputies from the Escambia County Sheriff's Office.

She cries for the lost potential.
Anyone who kills in the name of Islam is not acting alone. There are too many of them that preach death to infidels. We need to ban Islam, not guns. It’s not a valid religion if it advocates violence and murder.
The suits finally come to the same conclusion that all of the rest of us knew in the first 2 minutes of the news.
Pennsecola Base shooting Dec 6th........read the article tells you.
Then an assistant reminded Barr that the shooter was already dead and he lacked the power to indict a dead man anyway.
I agree Islam Ideolgy itself is the problem....
An act of terror? By a Saudi? No way... ..
Wait just a dol gerned minute.
Possession of child pornography ALWAYS results in prosecution. WTF??
It was a conspiracy, charge the other pilot trainees from Saud with murder and accessory to murder.
DO NOT send them home yet, AND DO NOT allow a claim of diplomatic immunity.
What a bunch of dirty ba$tards.
If the aircraft manufacturers want them trained, let them pay for it and do it in Riyadh.
Stating the obvious
It was an act of Jihad.
Don’t confuse the nebulous “terrorism” with pure Jihad.
Is this a BREAKING bombshell? Or just meh... breaking...
Just wanted to know so I can decide whether to start holding my breath and clutching pearls or just read over the first paragraph and decide the writer is an idiot and guilty of overusing the word “breaking”.
