[5440 note: reproduced verbatim from All American Blogger. This is stunning, and the conclusion at the end could not be more clear.]
This is head-shakingly incredible:
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) approved flight training for 25 illegal aliens at a Boston-area flight school that was owned by yet another illegal alien, according to the Government Accountability Office.
The illegal-alien flight-school attendees included eight who had entered the country illegally and 17 who had overstayed their allowed period of admission into the United States, according to an audit by the GAO.
Six of the illegal aliens were actually able to get pilot’s licenses.
This is one of those times when it’s a challenge for me not to go on a profanity laden rant. I’ll do my best, but ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME?
Anyone remember this guy?
Anyone remember these evil douche bags?
Anyone remember this?
What in the world is going on in the Transportation Security Agency? How do you not only know about this and not send in Janet Napolitano and Janet Reno over to give the group the Waco treatment?
How can these incompetent nitwits claim to be keeping the skies safe? How can the look the American public in the eye and tell them another Mohammed Atta isn’t training for another 9/11 style attack in America today?
Stephen Lord, who is the GAO’s director of Homeland Security and Justice Issues, testified about the matter Wednesday in [Rep. Mike] Rogers’ subcommittee. Rogers asked him: “Isn’t it true that, based on your report, the Transportation Security Administration cannot assure the American people that foreign terrorists are not in this country learning how to fly airplanes, yes or no?”
Lord responded: “At this time, no.”
Although the illegal alien who owned the Massachusetts flight school had not undergone a required TSA security threat assessment and had not been approved for flight training by the agency, he nonetheless held two Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) pilot licenses, also known as FAA certificates.
Remember this next time you are double checking your carry on for too much hair gel, or surrendering your crotch for a hands on pat down.
It’s all for show. You’re no safer than you were on September 10, 2001.
