    Of course, really ain’t nothing he could do. Would take some kind of skilled negotiator... or deal maker to work something out... and as we have all witnessed.. Trump is neither.
    Policy since the 1970s. corny, I have not read ONE SINGLE post of yours that has been either entertaining or informative in several months. I do sympathize that early onset altzimers is devastating, but I think if you just slow down a bit and try to think things through before you post you are capable of making a coherent post.

    Yup, there was a time in the past when corny occasionally posted something worthwhile. I actually liked some of what he posted even when I disagreed with it. I like reading a variety of opinions that differ from my own and getting in a logical discourse with the other guy. But, corny just posts nonsense now and it gets old.

    I enjoy posts where someone makes a claim and then we get into a back and forth exchange of the facts and reasons behind the claim. I have used that very process to refine my own position and adjust my reasoning. corny has turned into the court jester and is not even good at it. I wish the old corny would come back.

    The training program began in the 1970's as a part of diplomatic efforts. Right or wrong, the USA military hosts MANY foreign pilots from many nations. I know. I have been to their rental-houses fix the AC many times.

    I am not so much disturbed by "one bad apple" maybe... but why were 6 other Saudi pilot trainees arrested??? Saudi pilots operating within the USA do not hold a stellar track record for safety. They tend to crash into buildings. Hmmm..
    Insane isn't it ...Radical Muslims here training to fly in state of the art planes..which can only come back to haunt you later.
    Nothing good can ever come of it for us....and with what they learn they can retrain other Muslims in other nations as well...It's a bad idea all the way around..sadly we have to many people that stick up for Muslims now that we can't shut out the Muslims as that would be mean.
    Corny stated yesterday that the name Muhammad is now in the top ten list of baby names for boys in the United States ..at first I thought it was a joke..I looked it up and it's real.
    We have em in the white house...and more will be voted in by puke Democrats...We have a major crises on our hands right in front of us and nothing but silence..Trump may not even be able to doing anything about the insanity...as long as we have people that vote Democrat we are doomed

    And that's just the Muslims. There are many, many more Democrat created crises to deal with in all areas of National & Foreign Policy.

    The shooter was in the Saudi military and was selected by his own military for special training with our best pilots. So, my concern is not just with our own intelligence people failing to properly vet this guy but how about the Saudi military for having sent him in particular.

    Did the Saudi's fail at their own vetting process or perhaps they did not fail at it. Perhaps the Saudi's successfully selected this particular guy because of his anti American tendencies. Or, perhaps enlisted him to do what he did.

    Frankly, we should not be training our enemies nor should we be training those who are not totally with us. At the very least if you are not a NATO member you can't participate in any military training whatsoever.

    Got something to actually back that policy since the 70s thing up. Something besides a Breitbart or some other nonsense ???

    Anywho... 70s,90,s. Whatever... looks like nobody really gives a rats patootie about the safety of our service men and women... including your Hero, Trump.

    Don’t know why this thing keeps quoting Glenn.
    Anyhow.. wonder if we can get the Saudi’s to contribute some cash to the families of those civilians shot at Pearl Harbor by that crazy sub guy.
