Afgan Military Loose In America

FOX News is reporting that 17 Afghan military members are AWOL from a training base in Texas. This would be an interesting story, except for one thing: They didn’t just go AWOL. They’ve been missing for quite awhile, and we are now JUST getting around to hearing about it. This is further proof that our military, bloated like a bureaucratic pig, is only trying to cover its proverbial rear while it continues to exhibit incompetence.

"I can confirm that 17 have gone missing from the Defense Language Institute," said Gary Emery, Chief of Public Affairs, 37th Training Wing, at Lackland AFB. "They disappeared over the course of the last two years, and none in the last three months." Two years! We haven’t heard about this nor have we been warned to be on the lookout for them until today. Two years!

The military seems to think that this is more of an immigration problem then a terrorist problem. I guess those attacks on our Iraq and Afghan bases by men dressed in military uniforms are just more immigration problems, according to the military’s line of thinking. Of course, they have posted a bulletin with the Treasury Enforcement Communications System (TECS), which is a depository for information on those being suspected of violating federal law. I’m sure that will help find these guys, much the same way that it has helped us deport the over 12 million illegals already here.

Of course, this is just another example of how our government has not learned its lessons after September 11. The Bush bashers will be quick to point out that this was happening on his watch, but since President Obama is now Commander in Chief, and has been so for a year-and-a-half, this one is also his responsibility.

But it’s certain that he’ll deny any wrongdoing, even after the mushroom cloud rises above what’s left of one of our American cities.

I’m sure BO’s/BS’s brown shirt civilian force is training them well.

DLI is notorious for closeted homosexuals; perhaps the 17 are in San Francisco?

Drop a JDAM on the nearest goat farm to the base they went AWOL from.

I’m sure a sanctuary city like mine(Austin)with so many caring progressives, will welcome the missing 17 with open arms.

When these Afghans see tutu wearing Leslie Cochran or two homo’s making out on 6th street, the AWOl Afghans will blow a gasket.

This is just madness - it's like we're getting paddled by Jihadists and say "thank you sir, may I have another".
If we don't take the Demoncrats down soon we're all toast.

Does anyone subscribe to the theory that these missing military men are organizing other mooselimbs to take the fight to our own streets and cities?

But how could this be? Are these men refusing to return to their homeland, where there is incalculable mineral wealth, in order to stay in the racially biased and degenerate United States? Surely not.

Must have enrolled in a mining school to get ahead of the curve.

If one had a choice between the US and Afghanistan, which one would you choose? Looks like 17 Afghanis did a no-brainer.

How many Afghans awere/are enrolled in the program? How many are left and have they been interrogated on conversations they may have had with their home-boys?

Is there a time-line of when and how many just walked out...one at a time or 2X2?

There may be a few who wanted to *live the good life in the US and a few who were *moles*.

Guest on Fox just wondered if any are on the *NO FLY* list.
