US to expel over a dozen Saudi trainees after review of Naval Air Station Pensacola shooting
The United States is poised to expel more than a dozen Saudi servicemen training at U.S. military installations following a review of last month's shooting at the naval air station in Pensacola, Florida.
In the immediate aftermath of the terror attack at the Pensacola naval air station by Saudi military student, Mohammed Alshamrani, the Pentagon conducted background checks on all currently training Saudi military personnel and found no “immediate threat scenario.”
Although none of the Saudi students have been charged with aiding and abetting Alshamrani, during the course of the investigation, several were found to have connections to extremist movements or to be in possession of child pornography, according to reports.
Through the investigation, it was also determined that several of the accused did not report Alshamrani's erratic behavior in the lead up to the attack.
