How much evidence do we need? The Saudis reject the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, they practice slavery in Saudi Arabia and maintain their practices when they come to the United States, as several well-publicized accounts have found, they execute people for witchcraft, the Crown Prince at the very least connived at the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, Saudi imams preach hatred, rich Saudis provide financial support for their radical form of Islam all over the world, many Saudis joined Daesh, and 15 of the 19 9/11 hijackers were Saudis.
Now we learn that the shooter in the murders at the Pensacola naval base was a Saudi officer brought there for flight training. Protestations that the Saudis “love the American people” are nonsense. The “enhanced screening” of candidates for military training in the United States for foreign officers is simple: no Saudis. They are not our friends.
There is an old proverb that characterizes this situation well: he who sups with the devil should have a long spoon.
