You know the FBI had to know these guys were all involved in terror groups, just by comparing their names in interpol, and NCIC.
From what I understand the FBI and other government compare airport employee, airline employee, and contractor employee databases with NCIC and Interpol.
A friend of mine worked at Hert Rental at the airport told me that checks were done often comparing the databases including his company. And he had to do FBI background even though he never worked in the lugguage or onboard any planes.
The FBI knew about these guys and ignored it. Who ordered it?

Saudi Arabia is a U.S ally and no Saudi national ever committed a terrorist act against Americans so there was no reason to require FBI clearance for flight training for them at the time. But now you can be sure that rule will be changed though in hindsight it should been changed earlier. The terrorists took advantage of U.S ties to Saudi Arabia to use it as a loophole to continue their terrorist planning undetected. Sly SOBs those ones.
