TSA Let 25 Illegal Aliens Attend Flight School Owned by Illegal Alien

(CNSNews.com) -- 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.

Rep. Mike Rogers (R.-Ala.), chairman of the House Homeland Security
Subcommittee on Transportation Security, said he found the GAO's
findings "amazing."

"We have cancer patients, Iraq War veterans and Nobel Prize winners
all forced to undergo rigorous security checks before getting on an
airplane," said Rogers, "and at the same time, ten years after 9/11,
there are foreign nationals in the United States trained to fly just
like Mohammed Atta and the other 9/11 hijackers did, and not all of
them are necessarily getting a security background check."

Stephen Lord, who is the GAO's director of Homeland Security and
Justice Issues, testified about the matter Wednesday in 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."

    Time to shut them down and put in private companies for security. Cheaper and more efficient.

    They're too busy groping grandma and making us take off our shoes (including sandals), to actually protect from REAL threats.

    FOX reported on it, but I haven't heard it anywhere else. Hell. it took the MSM 4 days to report on obama's "if you have a business, you didn't build it" speech.
  • Flowers 2012/07/19 15:10:46
    Disappointing to say the least. What is the point of having the TSA if they are too busy frisking 4 year olds to check into who is getting pilot licenses?? When are they going to be held responsible for the job they are SUPPOSED to be doing??

    What a joke Homeland Security and the TSA have become. They are so busy patting down grandma and calling tea party members terrorists, that they can't even police the one area that we know of where the 9-11 hijackers learned to fly. This is the same government that wants to take care of your health!

    The TSA is not providing any security. They exist as an indocrination tool to condition the people to surrender their rights. We need Ron Paul to defeat these programs. Dumney supports these programs.

    The 9/11 Hi-Jackers did not make applications to get pilot licenses. These people did. I'm certain these people had proper background checks, otherwise they wouldn't have been granted permission to stay in the country and have their applications approved.

    WTF!!! The TSA isn't here to protect patriots from terrorists, it's here to protect the terrorists from the patriots.Time for a revamp.
  • thefatguy 2012/07/19 07:42:47
    Don't you all feel so much safer knowing the TSA federalized all our airport security? I can't wait until we turn over our health care to the Feds as well. What could possibly go wrong?

    didn't you know? Only SAUDIS are allowed to attend Flight Schools. You remember them. they were the ALLIES of ours who attacked us on 9/11.

    They were Radical Islamists, who come from many countries.
  • Ishmael dave b 2012/07/19 13:03:41
    Sorry pal,
    17 of the 19 hijackers were SAUDI ARABIAN. They were also financed by members of the SAUDI ROYAL FAMILY. you know, the same Family who's members were flown OUT of the US on 9/12/01 WITHOUT EVEN BEING QUESTIONED BY THE FBI.. The ONLY FLIGHTS ALLOWED that day. And WHAT was the form of Radical Islam they practiced? It was the Salafist form of Wahhabbi Islam, a form unique to SAUDI ARABIA.

    Rep Rogers has responsibility for Congressional oversight. Instead of asking obvious questions, why is he not telling us why there has been no oversight to prevent such things
    from happening? What do these Congressmen do all day? Perhaps they have day jobs
    somewhere else?

    Some of them left for vacations in January 2011 and haven't returned since. Little wonder there is no oversight. It was a promise of Ronald Reagan to destroy the oversight by Federal Agencies by underfunding them and letting them "die by attrition". He was expert at such, having done the same thing in California as Governor and his supporters had a decade to select the agencies that might interfere with their plans. He even fired the Air Traffic Controllers to prove what a union buster he was, notwithstanding the safety issues that presented to air travelers. So much for those "compassionate conservatives", looking out for themselves but no one else.

    He is very much with us as the pillage and plunder of "Reaganomics" has never stopped for even a moment since it began back in 1981.

    Is it too much to ask? Why are they not on their way to jail. We have a bunch of incompetent people running our government. This is a reflection on Obama!!!!
  • shadow76 dominic... 2012/07/20 15:27:23
    No we have a bunch of crooks running our Govt.

    Sure does not help when we have a president catering to illegal aliens. If Obama becomes president again, mark my words, he will be legalizing tons of them.
  • shadow76 dominic... 2012/07/20 19:44:09
    All illegals are criminals!
  • dominic... shadow76 2012/07/20 20:02:28

    You are right, anyone who breaks the law is a criminal. Unfortunately things in America have changed drastically. We have criminals and corruption running our government and they are allowing Illegals to get away with breaking the law and stealing from the American tax payer. They have more benefits than a hard working American.
  • shadow76 dominic... 2012/07/20 20:42:37
    Yea they thousands in tax refunds that they don't pay.

    Most of them steal other people's identities also, my brother had his credit messed up, because an illegal alien was using his social security number to work.
