#1 Only 18 years later than this change should have been made.

Now, make the base secure--allow personal to wear their sidearm on base, and arm everyone supposedly assigned to security detail.

And I don't believe he "acted alone" except in the strictest sense of the term.

#3 The French have intensified their background checks while recruiting and have started watching their muslim personnel, some have been stripped of their access to arms even. Everywhere, there have been some transfers and shuffles, and more must be in the making to move muslim personnel into administrative, PR, clerical work etc. It can't be done all at the same time, but I'm sure if done gradually the muslim infiltration can be reversed.

#5 Saw another article that said 850 grounded. Even if the lower number - how the hell big is the Saudi AF that it needs classes for hundreds? Or are these all "Princes" who "need" to be pilots rather than dirty, common grunts?

#8 US Navy grounds Saudi pilots. Hospitals, office building owners and government officials in Pensacola breathe a sigh of relief.
