Thousands of Aliens in US Flight Training Schools

"Some of the very same conditions that allowed the 9-11 tragedy to happen in the first place are still very much in existence today," wrote one regional security official to his boss at the TSA, the Transportation Security Administration.

"Thousands of aliens, some of whom may very well pose a threat to this country, are taking flight lessons, being granted FAA certifications and are flying planes," wrote the TSA official, Richard A. Horn, in 2005, complaining that the students did not have the proper visas.

Under the new laws, American flight schools are only supposed to provide pilot training to foreign students who have been given a background check by the TSA and have a specific type of visa.

But in thousands of cases that has not happened, according to the documents and current and former government officials involved in the program.

Those who fail to learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them.

Time to prepare for the inevitable... and keep your affairs in reasonable order, just in case you end up in the wrong place at the wrong time, like the World Trade Center on September 11th, 2001.

Listen to the Left (like the freaks at StageLeft) giddily mock me. Just listen to those idiots... they think it's funny.
