Homeland Security quietly considering lifting ban on Libyans training in US

The Department of Homeland Security is quietly considering lifting a long-standing ban on Libyans coming to the U.S. for training in the aviation and nuclear fields, according to an internal document, raising red flags for lawmakers who say Libya is still a security threat.

"Now, more than ever, we have concerns about terrorist activity in that country," Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told FoxNews.com. "Now the administration wants to normalize -- that's just not acceptable."

Chaffetz and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., first drew attention to the draft document, which is circulating inside DHS and is not yet final. It comes a little more than a year after the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi in which four Americans were killed. The suspects still have not been brought to justice, and Fox News has reported over the past week how several Al Qaeda-tied individuals are linked to the attack.

U.S. forces just this month captured terrorist Abu Anas al-Libi, wanted in connection with the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania, in Tripoli.

"It is shocking that the Obama administration is turning a blind eye to real terrorist threats that exist in Libya today," Goodlatte said in a written statement. "We still haven't gotten to the bottom of the Benghazi terrorist attacks and continue to face additional terrorist threats from Libya, yet the Obama administration is preparing to lift a longstanding ban that protects Americans and our interests."

Not acceptable? Note the "cowering in submission" language these wimps use? Neville Chamberlain style "fiery" rhetoric. :-)

Training in the avaition field, eh? You mean only teaching them how to fly a 777 and forgo the takeoff and landing instruction, like they did prior to 9/11?

Whose homeland is dhs securing again?
