    Not for you or I, no. The government should be putting a significant effort into finding them however. Freak out, no, be concerned, yes.

    Any more than the need to freak out over those guys who came to the US to initially learn how to handle aircraft?
    911 ring a bell?

    It would be kind of ironic if a Bush action in having these guys do training within the US, resulted in something very similar.

    Of the 13 Afghans who have been found, one is a conditional resident alien and four have removal proceedings from the U.S. pending, Smith said. Two others are permanent residents in Canada and six have pending refugee claims, also in Canada, he said.
    This is a little confusing.

    One is a "conditional resident alien," meaning that somehow he's gained some form of documentation from our immigration system despite being AWOL from the base? Similarly, four others were picked up in unrelated matters and had removal proceedings pending, but the government never put two and two together and figured out that they were part of the AWOL group? Moreover, without papers, how did eight of them get to Canada?
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Pssh, shows what you know.

    Obama was in charge on these things way before he was president.
    Crazy liberals.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
