odd silence

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-50701665

Waited a few days to see if the usual muslim terrorist comments would surface here or by Trump oddly nothing


Defence Secretary Mark Esper said on Saturday that he would not label the incident as "terrorism" at this point. said investigators must be allowed to do their work first. Really ?


My question is,, where did a foreign national get a Gun?

A 23 year old Annapolis grad was killed there, he was shot 5 times and managed to get out to first responders and tell them where the shooter was, and what he looked like. May he rest in peace.

shooter likely a lone jihadist. may he rot in hell.

Floridaman on Pensacola shooting: "I spoke with the King of Saudi Arabia. They are devastated, Saudi Arabia. We're finding out what took place, whether it's 1 person or a number of people. The King will be involved in taking care of families & loved ones ... they're going to help out"
“They” are devastated? This is a crime not a civil matter involving compensation for families. The Saudi illegally acquired a gun & high capacity magazines, while another filmed the shooting. Shooter left an online “will.”
Just think if the shooter was from....say....some Central American country.....like Honduras

and if trump didn’t say that, you’d ben attacking him for not demanding the Saudis help
out. You’re like a crazy, disgruntled ex girlfriend.

Thousands of Americans are dying every week. The President's response?

"We're seeing indications that our strong mitigation efforts are working. Very well, actually." He adds, "The numbers are getting very good."
"It is what it is."

Why is it that Floridaman’s first instinct is to tamp down any suggestion that the Saudi government needed to be held to account...What was missing was any assurance that the Saudis would aid in the investigation [or] help identify the suspect’s motives.

Maybe Trump was/ is involved PeteF.... He is most likely the only person responsible for this act.

YEAH, that’s the ticket. TRUMP DID IT !!!
The Dems should put a committee together to investigate.

I believe them.🤠

I did see someone talk about the Saudi's taking care of the victims.. they didn't say give them money . But clearly that was the suggestion..

But seeing how people on the right need the words to be spoken. To prove intent. We'll have to see what the Saudis do for the family's 1st .. to be 100% what Trump and others ment

As more details emerge, it’s hard not to ask whether Trump will give even terrorism a whitewash if his business partners are involved. The attack in Pensacola is front page, headline news. Imagine if Obama had brushed an attack like this off as a matter of compensation.

you don't don't get it do you the best POTUS in your lifetime




President Donald Trump on Tuesday again seized on what he called a "terrorist attack" in London to call for tougher anti-terror measures, even though the incident was still in the early stages of investigation.

this was as it was happening in London

But here in America its to early in the investigation. to call Terrorism

Trump declined to call the shooting an act of terrorism, says “there will be a report and the report will come out very soon.”

Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., whose congressional district includes the Pensacola naval base, told a local TV station Friday afternoon, “we can safely call this an act of terrorism, not an act of workplace violence.”

And if you dont think this restraint from Trump isn't because it involved a Saudi , you Havent been paying attention ...

Sure sounds like terrorism. Sure sounds like the normal coverup of bad Saudis (of which there are many)

Thanks to your efforts I am starting to see that anything wrong is Trumps fault and anything positive is the residual of Obama’s policy.
