Florida Terrorist Inspired by al-Qaeda, Fort Hood Shooting (David Wood)
Shortly before he opened fire at Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida, Second Lieutenant Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani (a Saudi Air Force officer) tweeted a message to the American people. In his tweet, he quoted both Osama bin Laden and Sheikh Anwar al-Awlaki (of al-Qaeda fame). Since the al-Awlaki quotes were taken directly from al-Awlaki’s “Message to the American People,” Alshamrani clearly read about Major Nidal Malik Hasan’s attack at Fort Hood. Hence, we have a connection between the Pensacola terror attack and the Fort Hood Massacre. The officer from Saudi Arabia was inspired to attack a navy base by al-Qaeda jihadis and a prior attack on a U.S. military base. Oddly enough, he was invited to the U.S. to learn to fly jets provided to Saudi leaders by the Trump Administration. David Wood (Acts 17 Apologetics) discusses this most important topic in US news.
