#2 Ideally, the President would announce that he's giving DOD, Boeing and Lockheed Martin 48 hours to move all training on non US personnel outside CONUS (sorry all you muzz loving non muzz eurines, but one bad apple, ya know...) Many would screech it can't be done in 48 hours! Fine, take as long as you want, but they all leave today.

#3 Pensacola municipal officials are already whining about "muh diversity..."

#4 Ideally, Trump should tell Salman "we want the family of the shooter dead". However, there is virtual certainty that a next Vindman is there - waiting for his chance.

#5 G, I think the sauds can manage that without overt direction. But it would be a great opportunity to catch out "the next Vindman."

#7 Can't say we were not warned about all of this. Yes, M. Murcek nails it at #2 with Boeing and Lockheed Martin. We quit manufacturing shoes, televisions, and computers decades ago. Gun running, it's what we do.

#9 Trump should tell the royal family that for every American killed in this sort of way by a Saudi, we want 1 castrated, flayed and crucified Royal Saudi Prince put on display on the white house lawn. Maybe that will give them the incentive they need.

#10 the unspoken story here is that as a Saudi Air Force lieutenant, this guy was very trusted by the 'Royal' family of Saud.
Some kind of princeling or blood relation I would gather.
Further unspoken is that a trip home (perchance the hajj?) is what 'radicalized' (set him off). So these ragheads are basically admitting that just setting foot in their country can cause sudden-jihad-syndrome.

#11 Send them all home. They can learn how to fly airplanes via correspondence courses.

#13 The FBI says he had a permit for the Glock 45. It was a legally purchased gun. That can only mean that he wasn't worried about going to jail after. It wasn't bought for his safety. He carried it on base knowing no one else would have one.

He was using the timid, deliberative, suicidal security protocols in America to aid his act. And he had carried the plan in his mind for a considerable amount of time. The feebs should release every detail they have on his contacts, his history and his mosque in America. Was it the Al-Islam Dawah Center on Barrancas Ave ? If so, what people was he close to there ? Are the g-men talking to them now ? The people have every right to know.

As for the contention that it would 'compromise the integrity' of the investigation, that canard has been proven to be bullshit again and again in this case. You want to catch cockroaches you shine a light, they come out and you stomp. The bureaucracy is still about correctness and islamophobia and it would relieve them greatly if they could just sweep this away as a 'temporary insanity' thingy.

#14 Dron66046, see, this is the kind of "backlash" the Muslims in Pensacola are fearing - policemen knocking on their door, asking questions. /sarcasm

#15 The FBI says he had a permit for the Glock 45

CCW permit from the state of Florida? I'd imagine other military personnel have the same paperwork, still doesn't allow them to carry on base.

#16 And I'll bet certain congresscritters are calling up the field office in Pensacola everyday to 'ensure they are not harassing muslims' in their quest to find the truth.

#17 I'd imagine L'il Marco Rubio will show up at a mosque with a headscarf any time now.

#18 On a trip home? Wasn't he born to a Muslim family?

#19 M. Murcek, let them continue their training at the new training facility in Guantanimo Cuba. Not as inmates, but they should have a look.

#20 CCW permit from the state of Florida? I'd imagine other military personnel have the same paperwork, still doesn't allow them to carry on base.

I read something the other day that selling firearms to a foreign citizen can make the seller subject to that foreigner's government's firearm laws.

If I understand, firearm restrictions can be waived for foreigners in military exchanges and security details, or other reasons such as a hunting tourist.

As for searching a protected group, imagine you do a thorough search and this guys complain to a big wig they are being harassed and the Prince will hear about this.

And what if you make him mad and he does something, or something.

I guess, if anything, at least the handgun wasn't dropped on base with instructions.
