Steven Duke of Shalimar was not surprised to learn that Saudi pilots are being trained in the United States.

Is everyone shocked to learn that so many Saudi pilots are flying million-dollar aircraft over our cities? I’m not.


You know why? Because Saudi Arabia has oil, and lots of it.


The United States has an insatiable appetite for it. So, those in charge are willing to accept the risk of danger.


Tell that to the three families that lost loved ones at NAS Pensacola.
