Infamous Terrorist Group Takes Credit for Pensacola Navy Base Shooting

Two months after gunfire erupted at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, FL, ending the lives of three U.S. sailors, one of the most notorious Islamic terrorist groups in the world has belatedly claimed credit for the attack.

“Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula claimed on Sunday that it directed a Saudi military officer to carry out the shooting,” reports The New York Times. “In an audio recording released on Sunday, the leader of the Yemen-based group, Qassim al-Rimi, claimed responsibility for the Dec. 6 attack at Naval Air Station Pensacola, according to SITE, an organization that tracks jihadist media.”

There is some veracity to the claim; the group often referred to as AQAP provided a copy of Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani’s will, which, reports the Times, “gave the claim a plausible air.” Alshamrani, a Saudi pilot being trained by the U.S. military as part of a joint project with Saudi Arabia, was responsible for the December 6 attack.

According to Brookings Institution scholar Bruce Riedel, the claim from AQAP – if true – would mean “that AQAP has infiltrated the Saudi military, which is an embarrassment for the Saudis.”

A month ago, Attorney General William Barr officially released the Justice Department’s assessment of the attack, declaring it an act of terrorism.

“The evidence shows that the shooter was motivated by jihadist ideology,” Barr said on January 13. “During the course of the investigation, we learned that the shooter posted a message on social media on Sept. 11 of last year that said: ‘the countdown has begun.’ Over Thanksgiving weekend, he visited the 9/11 Memorial in New York City. He also posted other anti-American, anti-Israeli, and jihadi messages on social media, and did so two hours before his attack at the naval base.

“Early reports indicated that the shooter arrived at the site, accompanied by other Saudi cadets, who took video of the attack as it unfolded,” Barr continued. “These reports turned out not to be accurate. The shooter arrived by himself. Other Saudi cadets happened to be in the area and, after the attack began, they took some videos of the resulting commotion. They fully cooperated in the investigation, as did the other Saudi cadets who were interviewed by the FBI at Pensacola and at additional bases across the country.”

Whether or not other Saudis were aware of the impending attack is a question that remains shrouded in mystery.

  1. We have not won a war since WWII. That was the last war that was run by military commanders. Since then politicians have been calling the shots. The results are clear – the politicians dont know what they are doing. They tried to do the same thing with our heathcare taking medical decisions away from doctors and giving them to beaurocrats. The results of which can be predicted. Now we see these same politicians tampering with OUR voting equipment. There power grab gas nothing to do with running this country – look at wealthy all of these crooked career politicians like the Clintons – Biden’s and Obama have become. Whenever anyone even mentions investigating them the Democrats are ready with their rubber stamp labels – “racist” – “misogynust”- etc. If someone is robbing you – do you really care what they call you?

    • Oops, Rimi died last night. Suicide by US rocket. He and a deputy of AQAP. As soon as this steaming pile of Camel poop took credit for the killings, President Trump Kept another promise. Kill an American and we will kill you back. This is the most decisive President that we have had in a long time. The Left wing with their corrupt CIA hack (and CNN Commentator) John Brennan ran a corrupt Domestic Terrorist Group called the CIA. President Trump has cleaned it up and put it to the use it was originally commissioned to do. The CIA identified and targeted the criminal, Al-Rimi and he left to go see Allah soon thereafter. Somehow, I don’t think the Virgins will be worth the final resting place in Hell that he will get.

  2. And what will the politicians do when the dastardly act is traced back to the majority of terrorists who caused 9/11/2001? Makes one wonder why politicians meddle in military strategy so much? Are some of these politicians getting some perks from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia?. Look who was screaming the most about the Iranian General who was taken out opportunistically, just saying- and when the decision was made that Trump should have waited for congress to come together and spend weeks making a decision and when congress finally decided– it was more humane to let him live. Then what? The Demomarxists will do anything to wrench the steering wheel of the ship of state from the President’s hands.

    • Correct on all points, but the adult in the room stepped in, fixed this and then left. Now, the children have to figure out how to either take credit for having helped, or criticize for his decision. In the end, adults make decisions because they have more experience at it. Children and those who have lived as children do not have this ability, so they mainly play in the theater. When one of them steps up to the microphone they so worship, my guess is that we all know who is going to say what.

  3. AMERICA HAS NOT LEARNED FROM THE 911 ATTACK THAT THE MUSLIMS ARE OUT TO CONCOUR THE WORLD. WE ARE STUPID FOR TRAINING THE SNAKES THAT WILL KILL US. PRESIDENT TRUMP NEEDS TO LOOK INTO THE TRAINING PROGRAMS OF THE MUSLIM JIHADIST AND GET THESE PEOPLE OUT OF AMERICA AND OUR PLANES. THE ISLAMIC IDEALOGY PROMOTES THE KILLING OF AMERICANS, JEWS, CHRISTIANS AND OTHER INFIDELS.
