Attorney General William P. Barr and FBI Director Christopher A. Wray held a news conference on the 2019 Pensacola shootings. They revealed information on a worldwide threat found on the terrorist’s phone and computers by FBI experts, information that took months to access because Apple refused to respond to court subpoenas and demands.
The story: On the morning of Dec. 6, 2019, a terrorist shooting occurred at the naval base in Pensacola, Fla., killing three U.S. sailors and injuring eight others. The shooter was killed by Escambia County sheriff deputies after they arrived at the scene.
He was identified as Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, an aviation student from Saudi Arabia.
The FBI investigated the case as a presumed terrorism incident, while searching for the motive behind the attack. On January 13, 2020, the Department of Justice said they have classified the incident as an act of terrorism, motivated by “jihadist ideology.”
On 2 February, al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) claimed responsibility of the shooting.
Two hours ago, Barr and Wray announced that the FBI tech experts had managed to crack the phone and computers belonging to Alshamrani. (Apple refused to unlock them.)
This reveals a DIRECT and GROWING THREAT to EVERYONE in the HOMELAND.
