Simply having a link in browser history does not satisfy the FL statute of possession of child pornography. Remember it has to be proven that there was intent and the suspect knowingly possessed it.

The fact the link was even in the browser history in the first place one could wager even a 3rd rate prosecutor like Adam Schiff could prove intent whereas there seemed to be an issue of proving intent with Hillary Clinton having an illegal server hosting classified documents.

The investigation is not connected to Florida law
Quote:
"I've signed out directives that address enhanced screening of all of our foreign students that address credentialing going forward, weapons policies, etc.," Esper told CBS News. "So we're doing everything we can. The investigation is being conducted by DOJ and FBI. I'm sure they will release something on that in the coming days."
If it were I would think it held more water unless they release some details.

Edit: This really wasn't an investigation for prosecution or prevention, turns out they just sent them home. This article does say "chat room" in the child pornography case but offers no further details.

Quote:
The Justice Department reviewed whether any of the trainees should face charges, but concluded that the conduct did not meet the standards for federal prosecution, Barr said
Quote:
Of the 21 sent home, 17 had social media containing jihadi or anti-American content. Fifteen had some kind of contact with child pornography. One of the trainees had possessed over 100 images of child pornography and had searched for the material but the U.S. attorney’s office determined there wasn’t enough evidence to warrant federal prosecution.

Normally I would agree with this, however strictly because they are members of a foreign military, the US shouldn't give foreign military personnel here on military business the option to buy, possess or use arms.

In fact it should be taken a step further and all joint military exercises should be done in international waters or somewhere else, not here.

There was always, I guess, the constitutional principles against having a standing army, all the regulations and laws that essentially disarm US soldiers and here they are letting some unvetted foreign soldier-by-day, terrorist-by-night access to firearms.

Foreign military members were sworn to uphold whatever charter, oath of loyalty or fealty to whatever country they are from and those principals, laws, edicts etc. are usually in direct conflict with things like the US constitution and liberty in general.

Part of the petrodollar deal:

"Saudi Arabia is America's No. 1 weapons customer"

Related:

"U.S., World's Top Weapons Dealer, Will Leave Arms Trade Treaty It Was Not Following Anyway"

Quote:
The U.K.-based Conflict Armament Research issued a report in December 2017 finding that the U.S. and Saudi Arabia—the leading customer of U.S. arms—had violated the nontransfer clauses of the Arms Trade Treaty by diverting "large numbers" of arms and ammunition purchased from signatory states in Europe and secretly diverted to insurgents fighting to oust Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The report specifically traced how much of this was ultimately acquired by the Islamic State militant group (ISIS).

Iím fine with halting 100% of immigration, legal and illegal, permanently.

The US does not need immigrants. Immigrants need the US. But thatís not my problem.

Cause when Saudi Arabia says jump, Trump says how high.

Your "hate America / Trump is a Saudi puppet" rhetoric is quite annoying. Try being a little more original. Oh, and maybe intellectually honest. Many US Presidents have come and gone since the US and KSA established diplomatic and defense ties. You just choose to beat on President Trump likely due to limited ability and the fact you believe everything the MSM feeds you.

Very sad indeed.
