US Flight Schools STILL Training Terrorists, Illegal Aliens 11 Years After 9/11

By Debbie Schlussel

That food on US-bound planes isn’t screened and American flight schools are still training terrorists and illegal aliens shouldn’t be happening nearly 11 years after the 9/11 Islamic terrorist attacks on America. But it shouldn’t be a surprise. We are incompetent, weak, and addicted to security theater rather than actual national security. That’s why you have the Lesbionic woman and Eric Holder running the show. And not people actually concerned with the safety, security, and well-being of the American people. (Not that the Bush people were any better, and they were in charge for almost eight of those 11 years and also did nothing but bend over for Muslims at Ramadan iftar dinner parties). And now there is more of the same old carelessness and incompetence. Even those on the no-fly list aren’t on the no-learn-to-fly list or the no-fly-a-plane list. Absurd:


Sit Back & Enjoy Big Brother Feeling You Up While Islamic Terrorists Fly the Plane:
Shukran [Thanks], America, for Giving Us Pilot’s Licenses, Love Hezbollah, PFLP & Al-Qaeda

Foreign students are able to study at U.S. flight schools after entering the country illegally or without undergoing a security check required after the 2001 terror attacks, government investigators say.

The Government Accountability Office reported Wednesday that its investigators found that eight foreign nationals attending a Boston flight school in March 2010 had entered the country illegally. Seventeen more who received security checks had overstayed their allotted time in the country.

Hmmm . . . I’m not sure why we should be concerned. After all, Barack Obama told us that people like this who are under the age of 30 are “as American” as you and I “except on paper.” Right? Let ’em learn to fly. What could be the harm? What could go wrong?

Three of them had obtained pilot’s licenses, Steven Lord of the GAO told the House Homeland Security subcommittee on transportation security.

Investigators also found that an undisclosed number of foreigners among the 25,599 registered with the Federal Aviation Administration to train to fly were not in a Transportation Security Administration database and hadn’t applied for a security check.

“We were surprised to find that some — the exact number is designated sensitive security information — some of the foreign nationals holding pilot’s licenses were not in the TSA’s database, indicating that some foreign nationals hadn’t been vetted before receiving flight training,” Lord said.

Three of the Sept. 11, 2001, hijackers who slammed planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were trained to fly at schools in Florida, Arizona and Minnesota.

After the attacks, Congress required the TSA to run security checks on all foreign flight students for planes weighing more than 12,500 pounds.

But GAO investigators found that the TSA check, which includes a criminal-background check and a comparison to a terrorist database, doesn’t occur until after the student has started training.

“Thus, foreign nationals obtaining flight training with the intent to do harm, such as three of the pilots and leaders of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, could have already obtained the training needed to operate an aircraft before they received any type of vetting,” Lord told the subcommittee in written testimony.

Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., asked the TSA whether somebody on the terrorist watch list could begin flight training, in effect being allowed to fly a plane while not being allowed to board a commercial flight.

“That is true,” said Kerwin Wilson, general-aviation manager at TSA. But, he added, it would take a long time for the student to complete training and that the background check could be completed during that time.

Oh, and by the way, this shouldn’t be news to anyone . . . anyone who reads this site. I already told you, a year ago, that the FAA gave pilot’s licenses to 15,000 people it knew were using phony social security numbers and questionable identities as well as 27 known Islamic terrorists, including one from Hezbollah. And did anyone do anything to fix it? Did Peter King or a single other member of the House Homeland Security Committee do anything to stop this? Nope. (Too busy grandstanding, doing FOX News interviews, and hosting Arab con artists with multiple aliases, like Hanan Qahwaji Tudor a/k/a Nour Saman a/k/a Rachel Cohen a/k/a Brigitte Gabriel.) These thousands of dangerous men and women can’t board the plane as a passenger, just as the pilot. Gee, I feel much safer, knowing that. Don’t you?

And here comes the Adam Ant song title I always use to describe America’s reaction. Yet again, Desperate But Not Serious.

Whatta joke. Sadly, we are the butt of it. Keep bending over.


Here’s a little appropriate background music:

Islamic terrorists love America – it gives them a world-class education in how to attack it!

Alhamidullah – praise Allah – there is no better country in which to learn how make jihad in the skies than America!

America – desperate but not serious in preventing terrorists from coming here to learn how to kill its people and to destroy it.

If you think all of this will change under a President Romney, think again.

“That is true,’ said Kerwin Wilson, general-aviation manager at TSA. But, he added, ‘it would take a long time for the student to complete training and that the background check could be completed during that time.”

Mr. Wilson assumes that the terror pilot is seeking a well rounded aviation education. All that is needed is a rudimentary ability to take off and fly for these characters. Kerwin Wilson must have oatmeal between his ears. Would a background check only be conducted on a police cadet after he had nearly graduated from the academy? How could such a response even be deemed acceptable?

We know why. Hamas-tied CAIR would be crying about “ISLAMOPHOBIA!” if we screen prospective students.

Does it take 11 years to complete training?

It’s never been more easy to spot the so-called Conservative FRAUDS who like to demonize or ignore DS. Make sure you’re paying attention to who they are (and then don’t take them seriously as good Conservatives and “in the know”) because those idiots are stuck on crap that is not as important as the Islamic threat.

DS knows what is most important.

And in the Obama-Putin Media all the smart ones are being either ignored or not taken seriously. But they have their fingers on the pulse of the truth and what really matters.

If the truth is what you’re looking for stay focused on that. The few who are telling it like it is won’t let you down because they ARE letting the truth be their guide.

Why would there be any sense. After all the White house is a haven for Saudi envoys – forgive me I mean moles – in key positions and our Department of State became an assylum for terror promoting mole thugs. What do you really expect from an administration who lost all common sense??????

By the way they are setting Antony Weiner to be their trojan horse in the USA. Please tell me why did a saudi Moslem Girl like Houma Abdine who is a sufragette, does nor wear Hijab or Burqa marries a Jewish “congressman” like Weiner who plans to run for mayor of New York. Why did the Saudis allow this Saudi Moslem girl to marry a non-Moslem an anathema in Islam???? Just ask yourself this question and you will see the answer.

By the way I have a copy of the Islamic Manifesto to spread Islam in America. I would be glad to fax it to you. It is about 38 Pages.

And the TSA strip searches old crippled people or sick people on the way to Mayo Clinic with ALL necessary papers to be allowed through WITHOUT being man-handled and having their feeding tube CONTAMINATED!!

I swear this administration is A disgusting piece of CRAP!

And PEOPLE WILL DIE as a result of their idiotcy!

I hate you obama and everybody who supports or works for you.

Do you all ever listen to yourselves and how UGLY your comments are? To begin with, you assume that these illegal immigrants (let me point out that “illegal aliens” is no longer considered an appropriate term – as they are human beings like us, not “the other” as the word alien implies) are Muslim. Do we know that as a fact? I’ve searched on the internet and found nothing about their nationality or religious affiliation mentioned – which indicates to me that that information was conveniently and intentionally left out. True, this is a pretty major oversight on the TSA’s part, but I’m not sure how you get that Obama is at fault for it. He’s not responsible for checking those records. I would suggest that you educate yourselves a little further and FACT CHECK before making accusations. Ignorance (i.e., ignoring the facts and blindly accepting only the information you want to hear) will get this country nowhere.
