A Saudi Air Force second lieutenant that killed and wounded several at a Florida US Navy base recently, has been shunned by the Kingdom.
The individual was at the base for training as a part of a long-standing Navy program involving members of the Saudi military. The reasons for indulging in a shootout remain unexplained.
Mr. Trump was quick to suggest how sorry King Salman was for the loss of the American lives and that his country will cooperate in every way to find the root cause of this incident.
It has been confirmed that the vetting process for such officers to do join training is very robust and intrinsic to the program. Saudi Air Force officers are handpicked, selected for military training in the United States. The Saudi personnel are “hand-picked” by their military and often come from elite families.
The shooting comes just two days after an active duty US sailor, Gabriel Romero, killed two civilian employees and injured another before killing himself at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard in Hawaii. Investigators have not announced a motive for the Wednesday shooting.
