More TSA brilliance.
From CNS News.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) approved flight training for 25 illegal aliens at a Boston-area flight school that was owned by yet another illegal alien, according to the Government Accountability Office.
The illegal-alien flight-school attendees included eight who had entered the country illegally and 17 who had overstayed their allowed period of admission into the United States, according to an audit by the GAO.
Six of the illegal aliens were actually able to get pilot’s licenses.
Discovery of the trouble at the flight school began when local police–not federal authorities–pulled over the owner of the school on a traffic violation and were able to determine that he was an illegal alien.
……Although the illegal alien who owned the Massachusetts flight school had not undergone a required TSA security threat assessment and had not been approved for flight training by the agency, he nonetheless held two Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) pilot licenses, also known as FAA certificates.
Not only were they not stopped at the border, but:
–“Eight of the 25 foreign nationals who received approval by TSA to begin flight training were in ‘entry without inspection’ status, meaning they had entered the country illegally. Three of these had obtained FAA airman certificates [pilot’s license]: 2 held FAA private pilot certificates and 1 held an FAA commercial pilot certificate.
–“Seventeen of the 25 foreign nationals who received approval by the TSA to begin flight training were in ‘overstay’ status, meaning they had overstayed their authorized period of admission into the United States.
–“In addition, the flight school owner held two FAA airman certificates. Specifically, he was a certified Airline Transport Pilot (cargo pilot) and a Certified Flight Instructor. However, he had never received a TSA security threat assessment or been approved by TSA to obtain flight training. He had registered with TSA as a flight training provider under AFSP.”
A GAO official told CNSNews.com that, based on their names, none of the 25 illegal aliens who attended the flight school appeared to be from Muslim countries. Instead, they had Latin American names.
The TSA, created in 2002, has never stopped any terrorist from actually boarding an American commercial aircraft. But they utilize x-ray scanners, metal detectors, pat-downs, sexual molestations, strip searches, and federal air marshals, to target Kinder Eggs, whistleblowers, thermoses, refusniks, white middle class Americans, elderly people, mentally retarded people, children, and Soldiers.
Everytime one of their incompetent brain dead screeners uses heavy-handed stupidity on anyone besides muslim males between 18-35 traveling to and from known terrorist Islamic nation states, the TSA hierarchy invariably issues the canned response: “TSA has reviewed the incident and determined that our officers followed proper current screening procedures…”
TSA “viper teams” are showing up at train stations, ferry terminals, and subways, to perform the same incredibly shitty job they do in airports.
Just think, these fucking bozos are unionized, now.
In a rare glimmer of common sense, the Senate passed a bill allowing airports to evict TSA assclowns and replace them with private security. Some airports have already done that. Most air travelers would love to see the TSA marginalized out of existence.
