U.S. authorities couldnt perform drug or alcohol tests on the four pilots who were aboard Asiana Flight 214 when it crashed at San Francisco International Airport a lapse that will complicate efforts to figure out why they were seemingly unaware that the plane was coming in too slowly and too low.
Those were the latest revelations Tuesday from National Transportation Safety Board Chairwoman Debbie Hersman, who said her agency and the Federal Aviation Administration couldnt legally requirethe crew of the South Korea-based airline to submit to testing after the crash. That decision is left to the airlines home country.
The U.S. does not have oversight responsibility for Asiana or for foreign-license pilots, Hersman said.

So if a foreigner crashes their car and kills someone in the U.S. the police can’t demand drug or alcohol tests???
I don’t buy that.
Also, did the pilots refuse to be tested? If so they should be refused entry in the U.S. from this point on.
TEAM Obama strikes again.
Maybe someone should tell Zero there was a crash in SFO...
Did they check their cell phones?
An accurate urine test most probably couldn’t have been done to the type of landing and they sure can’t get one from the aircrew’s underwear.
HUH???? Since when??? The FAA has authority over any and all aircraft and crew that decide to land in US

Most likely a combination of inexperience and perhaps mechanical failure. If substance abuse was involved I believe it would be the first commercial airline accident ever because of pilot drug use.
“Also, did the pilots refuse to be tested? If so they should be refused entry in the U.S. from this point on.”
At this juncture, I just hope that they’ve been detained and will not be able to leave the country until the investigation is complete. The good news is it is unlikely that they are Muzzies, which will facilitate keeping them here.
Hersman is a media whore. There isn’t a camera she hasn’t posed for. She spends her days talking on TV, trying to be popular.
Unfair! After that awesome landing they tested Denzel— its good enough for these guys!
Just tell them, you want to land? You follow our rules.
