    These guys are all working at Wal-Mart or something and happily munching on cheeseburgers while watching HBO. I'm not particularly concerned about a security threat. These guys are our allies, remember?

    At a guess, because they would be escorted out of the country. The article suggests that this may be an immigration thing, that is, the Afghani's don't want to leave, so they go AWOL. Of course, until they are found, we cannot assume that, since there is a real security risk with them.

    Now the idea of finding just 17 guys out of a pool of what? some 20,000,000 illegal immigrants? No problem right?

    You don't see a security threat?

    17 Afghan citizens borught to the US to be taught military operations. That is not a security threat?

    How do you figure that one?

    He was referring to their ability to get into secured military facilities.

    That, and these guys were on our side. People go AWOL because they don't want to fight anymore, not because they want to attack the country they're AWOL from. These guys weren't random grunts, they were training to be pilots.

    That makes an assumption that is not necessarily true. The potential exists, however small, that they are AWOL planning some nefarious act. They are probably AWOL in an attempt to stay in the US, but it's best to not assume that.

    My point is that there's no particular need to freak out about these guys.
