uh oh seems to be an understatement here...
Seems some Afghanistan "pals", training to become pilots, were here in the US to learn English. All, including both officers and enlisted men, have security security badges that give them access to secure U.S. defense installations.
The Afghans were attending the Defense Language Institute at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas. The DLI program teaches English to military pilot candidates and other air force prospects from foreign countries allied with the U.S.
"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."
Each Afghan was issued a Department of Defense Common Access Card, an identification card used to gain access to secure military installations, with which they "could attempt to enter DOD installations," according to the bulletin. Base security officers were encouraged to disseminate the bulletin to their personnel.
"The visas issued to these personnel have been revoked, or are in the process of being revoked. Lookouts have been placed in TECS," it reads.

Oh oh. If we go go looking for ‘Afghans’, isn’t that profiling? /sarc
What's important is the information both taught and gleaned.
The true madness is these 17 have disappeared over a period of time.
I dunno ..
One month later ...
Mohamed? .. Adolph?
“I wasn’t born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!”
More on those 17...here...(with names)...
Interesting commentary at chicagoray...
On the subject of Military bases, what the hell happened to the 2 heavily armed Amish who tried to enter one of our bases with false ID’s. I haven’t heard a peep.....
Check the local “pole dancer’ emporiums.
The Muzzies may be there with an alcoholic drink in their hand and a lap dancer at work on their lap.
If they have already left, then - - - - -
Islam Delenda Est.
It’s good to know that the US government has not learned anything about warfare. We keep training our enemies in our latest technology and strategies and they keep using it against us. It seems this time they really screwed the pooch because they have 17 trainees loose on US soil. I am sure those 17 don’t have terrorist connections in the US after all the government conducts extensive background checks on all potential recruits.
