Here is the article from the other day:

Pakistanis Missing From Ship WTKR.com Posted on 3/22/02 8:32 AM Pacific by dsb NewsChannel 3 has learned that four Pakistanis are missing from a ship that was in Hampton Roads last week. The ship "Progresso," which is a Russian ship sailing under a Maltese flag, made a port of call in Chesapeake last Friday. When it left port on Sunday, four of its crew members were missing. The INS emphasizes there's no reason to believe the four Pakistani nationals have an criminal intent. In fact, they checked out fine when the ship came into port. But in a post 9/11 world, local authorities have been given their photos and descriptions. The photos are not being made available to the public. We want to emphasize that these men are not wanted for anything at this point beyond immigration issues.

Not to worry. They'll continue on securely in their jobs and have a nice
retirement that will be better than anything two idiots could hope for in the private sector.

I'll remember this when I seal my payment envelope to the IRS on April 15.

You know we could make a fortune if we start an airlines that does not permit any type of head covering to be worn.
We could even steal the old slogon "Come Fly The Friendly Skies"

Four Paki's are missing from a ship carring fertilzer, one of the Paki's is on either the Terrorist Watch list, or another watch list for people who have been deported for visa violation. Nothing to see here, move along.

So, they've had about a week to infiltrate and disappear...they could literally be anywhere in the country...and wonder if they brought anything in with them--like weapons, WMD...

We are in trouble if the INS doesn't get its act together...and GWB doesn't forget about the Amnesty Bill.

Can't do much with these agents, they can't be fired only reassigned. The politicans need to change that, and let these worthless pieces of trash go on strike and replace every agency in D.C. from top to bottom.

The INS is just like the FBI now. When it comes to stupidity and embarrassment, they're on a roll!

It's time to gut the INS and fire everybody. Let them reapply for other jobs. Upper and middle management need not apply.

They will turn that job down. Not enough money.

They will probably get a job as pilots for American Eagle (AMR) to replace the last illegals that were fired for flying for them.

This gets crazier and crazier every day. Nothing suprises me anymore.

Fox News article:

Four Pakistanis Missing After INS Wrongly Let Them Enter Country

Friday, March 22, 2002

By Carl Cameron

WASHINGTON — Federal officials are on the lookout for four Pakistani nationals who are in the United States illegally after leaving a freighter that had been docked in Virginia sometime last weekend.

Immigration and Naturalization Service district directors and border patrol chiefs from across the country met on a "crisis management" conference call Thursday afternoon in which it was revealed that one of the four missing Pakistanis showed up on a "look out list" described by call participants as a "terrorist list."

Some members on Capitol Hill who have heard about the case are "furious," according to sources, and the embarrassment is said to have further angered President Bush, who was put in another awkward situation last week when the INS mailed visa approvals for two Sept. 11 hijackers to the flight school they attended last year.

The Coast Guard is distributing fliers in the Norfolk, Va., area of the missing crew members: Ahmad Salman, Thulan Qadar, Mohammad Nazir and Adnan Ahmad.

They were onboard the Progresso, a Malta-chartered freighter that was carrying a chemical commonly used in fertilizer, when it made port a week ago Friday near Norfolk from Novorossisk, Russia.

The ship has a 27-member crew; 19 are Pakistani. The captain is Croatian.

Last Friday, an INS inspector granted the four Pakistanis "shore leave visa waivers," which allowed them to come ashore even though they had not been granted visas for entry into the United States.

However, the INS inspector violated INS rules, which prohibit Pakistanis from receiving waivers. After Sept. 11, the INS issued a directive specifically denying Pakistani crew members shore leave or "admission as crewman," which is offered to nationals from 29 mostly Western European countries with which the United States has specific reciprocal arrangements.

Pakistanis are also denied expedited processes and require extra scrutiny, according to INS directives.

All the men told the INS inspector that they did not have any family in the area and that they were veteran merchant mariners. The INS inspector did not have access to electronically crosscheck the Pakistanis' identification while in the field.

Sources said that over the weekend, one of the men left while the ship was at a dock on South Military Highway in Chesapeake. Later, the ship moved to Triport Terminal, another facility a few miles down the southern branch of the Elizabeth River. Three more men left there.

Sunday afternoon, the captain reported to the INS inspector that the four Pakistanis had not returned to the ship. The Progresso then departed for Savannah, Ga.

Once the men were discovered missing, the INS checked their names in its Interagency Border Information System and found that at least one had violated his visa status in the past.
