The Pentagon has grounded over 300 Saudi Arabian military aviation students after the brutal mass shooting in Florida which was carried out by a disgruntled Saudi National who may have been radicalized by Islamic propaganda.
As The Daily Mail reports:
More than 300 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 Friday at a US Navy base in Florida.
The FBI has said US investigators believe Saudi Air Force Second Lieutenant Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, 21, acted alone when he attacked in Pensacola then was fatally shot by a deputy sheriff who was first to respond.
The US Defense Secretary said he had instructed the armed forces to review both security at military bases and screening for foreign soldiers who come to the United States for training after the shooting.
But three anonymous pilot instructors claim their requests to arm themselves after the attack have been denied by a top Navy brass.
An air force spokesperson indicated that it was presently unclear when or if the students would begin flying again.
