    EXCLUSIVE: Alert Issued for 17 Afghan Military Members AWOL From U.S. Air Force Base

    A nationwide alert has been issued for 17 members of the Afghan military who have gone AWOL from a Texas Air Force base where foreign military officers who are training to become pilots are taught English, FoxNews.com has learned.

    The Afghan officers and enlisted men have security badges that give them access to secure U.S. defense installations, according to the lookout bulletin, "Afghan Military Deserters in CONUS [Continental U.S.]," issued by Naval Criminal Investigative Service in Dallas, and obtained by FoxNews.com.


    Oh man does this look bad.

    Its not altogether right now but how did this go under the radar so long?

    A senior Defense Department official in Washington told Fox News he had no direct knowledge of the 17 men being AWOL. The official added that this is not the first time foreign trainees have gone missing, and said some cases in the past have turned out to be more of an immigration concern than a national security threat.
    Could just be an immigration thing, but still pretty ridiculous.

    FWIW, I'd be more concerned by this:

    "I can confirm that 17 have gone missing from the Defense Language Institute," said Gary Emery, Chief of Public Affairs, 37th Training Wing, at Lackland AFB. "They disappeared over the course of the last two years, and none in the last three months."
    Let me get this straight: We brought Afghani soldiers over here to train them, giving them ID cards that allowed them to enter secure locations. Over a 2 year period, 17 of them just disappeared. We're just getting around to distributing this information now?
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    I don't see why this is so concerning. They probably lived here for a bit and decided "Holy crap this is WAY better than that ****hole we came from. I'M STAYING F YOU GUYS."

    This program is, according to the article, at least 2 years old. Now, who was the president 2 years ago? I wonder....

    So, before people turn this into some stupid partisan crap, it's serious. Things went wrong, they went wrong under Bush, they went wrong under Obama. There are more important things than pointing fingers at people who probably did not even know about the program.

    Whew. That was close. We almost agreed.

    Someone should pay the price now though. I'm not talking about presidents, just whomever was in charge of the information and the security.

    Yes, right. Mistakes where made, and those mistakes will have to be rectified, and some one at some point made a stupid decision and it needs to cost. Since we are dealing with the military, that is almost certain to happen. My immediate concern however is finding the 17 people.

    Is it a large scale terrorist plot or people not wanting to go back to the waste bin that is Afghanistan?

    They didn't factor in culture shock when they brought the Afghans over did they? Maybe they're doing some form of Rumspringa.

    Hope they get found, and soon.

    While problematic, I don't see a huge security threat. Common Access cards are merely a root certificate of trust, they don't get you into a secure facility unless you have been specifically cleared for that location. Human errors were obviously made, but the system itself is still intact.
