  4. Dam those 21 Saudi soldiers didn't get charge that slap to the face

  5. I have to get a new drivers license which requires two proofs of citizenship and two two proofs of birth to be able to fly WITHIN the United States. But these assholes get in for free?? Pay my $80 at least scumbags or go sit at the DMV for me.

  6. Can someone actually explain why we are training Saudi troops?

  7. "will not face charges"
    Nuke arabia now.

  8. Saudi pilots have been training in the U S. since 1983, at a Nebraska air Base. Time to stop this practice.

  9. Omg I live near there °-° we go there for school trips oh no °_°

  10. Zero charges? Does that include the Saudi airman who had child pornography on his devices? Details about him were previously reported by multiple news outlets, including the local paper here in Pensacola. Some of us have long memories.

  11. To all the commenters, the US and other nations have trained together on US soil for almost 70 years now at least.

    And for you wise asses saying "took them this long to figure that out?"….they have to do a proper investigation to prove that it was a "calculated unlawful use of violence or threat of violence used to inculate fear in a government or society to achieve GOALS that are POLITICAL, RELIGIOUS OR IDEOLOGICAL in nature"….terrorism has an actual definition and an investigation must be properly done before an act is officially labeled as such.

    These people aren't just sitting on their ass commenting on You Tube like all of us.


  13. For 8 yrs we had a president and an AG who couldnt even speak the words, terror, terrorist, terrorism! Its so refreshing to have a president and an AG who are willing to call a spade a spade!

  14. Imagine what Fox News is going to say about this…..

  15. I still don't get why we are selling weapons to our enemy's and teaching them how to use them against us! It goes against any common sense! It's like the elites like rubbing shit in our faces to try to drive us nuts

  16. White guy shoots up a school. White guy shoots up a theater. White guy shoots up a church. White guy shoots up a Walmart. White guy shoots up anything and everything. The associated phrase we hear most often is 'mental health.' However, a non-white guy does exactly the same, and we can be certain the applied phrase we are certain to hear is 'terrorism.' Is it just me or is there actually something else going on here? What's the message we are being sent, and what lessons should we be learning?

  17. Load them up and move them out!

  18. And yet the US government continues to tell us that Saudi Arabia is our friend. We train them, we arm them. Let’s continue to support those countries that have shown time and time again what their agenda is. And let’s continue to attack or sanctions countries which have not shown any animosity towards us, because that seems to be working.

  19. This is why they had child porn in their possessions mohamed let them one of his wives was 9 years old

    Sahih al-Bukhari 3896—Narrated Hisham’s father: Khadija died three years before the Prophet departed to Al-Madina. He stayed there for two years or so and then he wrote the marriage (wedding) contract with Aishah when she was a girl of six years of age, and he consummated that marriage when she was nine years old.

    Sahih al-Bukhari 5158—Narrated Urwa: The Prophet wrote the (marriage contract) with Aisha while she was six years old and consummated his marriage with her while she was nine years old and she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death).

    Sahih Muslim 3310—Aisha reported: Allah’s Apostle married me when I was six years old, and I was admitted to his house when I was nine years old.

    Sahih Muslim 3311—Aisha reported that Allah’s Apostle married her when she was seven years old, and she was taken to his house as a bride when she was nine, and her dolls were with her; and when he (the Holy Prophet) died she was eighteen years old.

    Sunan Abu Dawud 2116—Aishah said: The Apostle of Allah married me when I was seven years old. (The narrator Sulaiman said: Or six years.) He had intercourse with me when I was nine years old.

  20. Never terrorism when a white person massacres 20+people.

  21. Let's here it for political correctness, & not being islamaphobic, or xenophobic, or whatever otherphobic.


  22. All set up by the deep state supported by the demonrats.

  23. Same story like 911 twin towers,the busches send 12 Saudi back to Saudi day after when all flights were cancel but they were the only one allowed to go back to Saudi, must be another drill coming!

  24. But! But! But Islam is not bad!!!

  25. And yet we have OUR troops THERE to protect them be ause they paid us?!?!?! I'm not sure what is going on, I'm not on the inside so I really dont know but just kind of tired of hearing of our troops getting killed and such for things that should have been tightened up and investigated more. I know these things happen but the fact that we still play nice with the Saudis kinda doesnt make sense in my bitty little brain. .

  26. If the Iranians had done it, it would have been an act of War, according to Barr.

  27. America needs to get out of bed with the Saudis. The atrocities that happen within that regime against their own citizens seem to be overlooked because of business interest. It's no surprise that something like this has happened. I guess we didn't learn much in the last two wars we started.

  28. It would be nice to hear someone trustworthy speaking instead of that liar Barr. This man said a report that clearly said, "[in no way does this exonerate the president]", says it exonerated the president.
    He'll lie about anything trump tells him to lie about and trump lies all the damn time.

  29. Finally America realizes who is the enemy, Good job 👍🏾

  30. it the way people fight back to us gov for justice

  31. I knew he was going to be charged with terrorism the day I saw him.

  32. Omg no not terrorist…. does this mean we have to go to war with the Saudis? Nope because they buy our weapons and that's ok American blood for cold hard cash.

  33. blame obama for lettin the dirty faces in 🇺🇸

  34. Why are we training other nations to fight us it makes no sense Saudi Arabia really

  35. If it happened in Saudi Arabia they would be executed or jailed immediately lucky for them they were in the US

  36. Wow , just wow. This is ridiculous..: 🤦🏽‍♀️ people trust one another too damn much !! Get them all out of here !! This could have been avoided ….. smh 🤦🏽‍♀️ again

  37. I think we need to cut all ties to Saudi Arabia…….they can not be trusted.

  38. Round up the followers of mohammed and deport them all, including obama

  39. This was not terrorism, Barr is a F'ing liar and the evidence says the military was bullying this man on a daily basis instead of training him like they were supposed to, enough to make him fight back.

  40. But, but we Must fight in the middle East so they don't end up here. The government has always been regarded as truth tellers.
