A Fox News host has been banned from Twitter after sharing the manifesto of a Saudi military trainee-turned Islamist terrorist who carried out a mass shooting at a Pensacola, Florida Naval installation.
Pete Hegseth shared screenshots of postings on Saturday made by Saudi national Mohammed Alshamrani shortly before the attack. Alshamrani espoused on his motivations for the terrorist actions, in which he killed three U.S Navy sailors and wounded eight more.
Alshamrani created a manifesto in which he referred to the United States as a “nation of evil,” attacked Israel, and praised Osama bin Laden.
Hegseth shared elements of his manifesto, only to go dark on Twitter sometime shortly after. He posted on Instagram on Sunday revealing that he had been banned from the platform for exposing Alshamrani’s manifesto, slamming the platform’s censorship tactics that leave the public in the dark after terrorist attacks.
Hegseth is appealing his permanent ban from Twitter, but he expressed doubt the platform would let him back on
Twitter has banned individuals who have posted writings made by terrorists before, such as the El Paso Walmart mass shooter and the New Zealand anti-Muslim terrorist. But it seems as if the platform is merely keeping the motivations of violent individuals in the dark and creating confusion by its broad policy.
In another concerning development, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper has confirmed that other Saudi nationals present at the Pensacola Naval Air Station filmed Alshamrani’s attack.
BREAKING: Defense Secretary Mark Esper confirmed one or two Saudi nationals filmed the Pensacola attack. It is not clear why they were filming it he said.

Alshamrani’s terrorist attack against U.S military personnel, and the apparent involvement of other Saudi military trainees, raises serious questions about ongoing programs that facilitate the training of Saudi military personnel in the United States.
