Confirmation of Pensacola gunmans ties to al-Qaida not a revelation, congressman says
A man involved in a December shooting that killed three and injured eight at Naval Air Station Pensacola had clear ties to terrorism, authorities announced Monday.

When that happened, it was pretty much self-evident: This is definitely a terrorist attack on our shores. Yoho, a member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, said the news is not surprising to him. Alshamrani, who was a member of the Royal Saudi Air Force, had been training at Naval Air Station Pensacola and was killed by law enforcement during the attack.
