welcome the Royal Saudi Air Force to train it's Pilots for 5 years and 500 million. Hippocracy to the fullest. Not to mention the majority of 9/11

It's long standing policy that friendlies can train stateside with us in charge of the excersizes. We are notorious for this. Other nations allow us
to maintain bases and facilities there so this is us reciprocatiting. Nothing more, nothing less.
We have had members of at least 75 militaries of the world train here so this is nothing new.
The term "friendlies" is not specific, nor has it been a good measure in our countries past. Remember how that worked for giving/selling Afgans
weapons to fight the Soviets? Now we're selling huge military deals to the place that had more 9/11 "terrorists" than Afganistan. In the past, there
are many cases where this kind of scenario is always talked about later, but when it comes up again no one seems to notice until years after the fact.
But that is not my point. I am more concered with the direct hipocracy and crassness of our elected officals. Our Republic is near it's
