LACKLAND AIR FORCE BASE, Texas -- A be-on-the-lookout alert issued last month for 17 Afghan military men who walked away from an Air Force base in Texas has turned out to be just the tip of the iceberg. No fewer than 46 members of the Afghan military have gone absent without leave from the Defense Language Institutes English Language Center at Lackland Air Force Base in recent years, FoxNews.com has learned.
From a series of interviews with civilians and military personnel conducted over the course of a week, and according to documents obtained from a variety of sources, FoxNews.com has learned that five of these Afghan deserters remain at large; eight are in custody; at least 18 are in Canada and one has been granted conditional U.S. residency. The most recent to disappear fled the Texas base just last Thursday, hours after his graduation ceremony.

If this had happened under Bush, the media would be on this non-stop. Sadly only FOX seems to be reporting.
As long as they are loyal to America, I don’t care.
They are now EDUCATED illegal immigrants.
Their motivation is probably no more complicated than wanting to live in the USA - not Afghanistan.
Heck, if you knew the US was going to cut and run would you want to go back to your own country and wear a uniform that said collaborator on it? Besides, America ALWAYS welcomes immigrants yada, yada, yada as long as they vote for Democrats. ;-) I’m surprised it’s ONLY 46 who have bolted to the land of the free.
And as long as they don’t try to make me speak their language.
There comes a time when you have to take a look at some of this stuff and realize our nation doesn’t deserve to survive if we can’t do better than this.
This is mind-blowing stuff.
Open up a restaurant and I am soooo there!
And as long as they work and pay taxes and not stay on welfare
and reproduce like rabbits.
“This is mind-blowing stuff.”
It’s pretty unbelievable alright.....
Pray for our nation.
There could be more to this story. They could be officially AWAL but inside informants that had to leave.
Yea!Where everything is free to illegals..
So you think that we need more dirt bags that would lie under oath??

Well... I’m not sure why they would need to go AWOL since they’ve already completed the course. And evidently some of them didn’t complete the course.
I’m not ruling your suggestion out, but I don’t understand the need for it. If people didn’t already know they were there, why the secretive leave? If they did, what good would it do for them to appear to bail?
These days, being legal is a liability.
They’re patriotic AWOL Islamists. You have nothing to worry about.
par for the course...some things will never change.
