BREAKING UPDATE: Saudi Student Behind 2019 Florida Naval Station Attack Was ‘In Touch with Al Qaeda’

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.18.20

The Saudi flight student behind a deadly attack against a Florida Naval Air Station in 2019 was reportedly “in touch with al Qaeda” before the assault that killed three US sailors.

“The communication was discovered after investigators broke through the encryption on a phone belonging to gunman Mohammed Alshamrani, the sources said Monday,” reports Fox News. “The FBI, following the Dec. 6 shooting, had asked Apple for help in accessing data from a pair of iPhones owned by the gunman, as investigators had been unsuccessful in unlocking the devices.”

“We call on Apple and other technology companies to help us find a solution so that we can better protect the lives of American people and prevent future attacks,” Barr had said in January.

“During the course of the investigation, we learned that the shooter posted a message on September 11, [2019] stating, ‘the countdown has begun,’” Barr said in January. “During the Thanksgiving weekend, he then visited the 9/11 Memorial in New York City.

“He also posted other anti-American, anti-Israeli and jihadi messages on social media, including two hours before his attack,” Barr added.

The United States Navy suspended flight training for more than 300 Saudi Nationals this week following a deadly shooting at an Air Base in Pensacola, Florida.

“The U.S. Navy on Tuesday suspended nearly 300 Saudi students from flight training in response to the deadly shooting by a Saudi student last Friday in Pensacola, Fla.,” reports Fox News. “Navy Commander Clay Doss said classroom and flight training will resume for other students this week. He did not say how long the flight stand-down for Saudi students will continue.”

“Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, a 21-year-old aviation student from Saudi Arabia, opened fire at Naval Air Station Pensacola, killing three military members and injuring eight others,” adds Fox. “The flight restriction would affect 140 students at Pensacola Naval Air Station, where the shooting occurred, and 35 at nearby Whiting Field.
