Wow. It seems like everybody who’s anybody is talking about this. No Sheeples Here has a post on it and I heard about it from Obi’s Sister.

It’s being reported that 17 Afghan soldiers here for training are loose in the US, and have been for about 2 years or less and we are just now hearing of it. The reports are somewhat vague as to the duration of individual cases although I might infer that they have been filtering out into the population in small numbers.

Some are questioning why the reports are only being released now. Fox News quotes an unnamed senior law enforcement official:

“Although we are vigilant and need to work toward not allowing this to happen,” the official said, this alert should “not necessarily” be described as “a national security threat, more of a ‘hey these guys violated our laws and we need to find them.'”

OK sport, maybe you could look for about 12 million or so illegal immigrants while you’re at it. Both cases are quite similar with the exception that we transported these possible terrorists here at taxpayer expense. I hear we have some neat new detention facilities in which to house these guys, should they ever be caught. They could learn basket weaving with the rest of  ’em.

I can tell you the first place I would look for these guys, it’s a place that they would fit right in, never to be noticed.

The Obama Administration.

Glenn Beck sent out an email on it earlier today and Fox also has some info, including the names and Memeorandum has more info along with Scared Monkeys, The Jawa Report, Weasel Zippers, Confederate Yankee, Atlas Shrugs, Liberty Pundits Blog, Patterico’s Pontifications and And So it Goes in Shreveport

Another question, why don’t they post the photos? Are they afraid someone might recognize one of them? Am I supposed to go up to random Afghan looking dude and ask “Hey, aren’t you… *picks out random name from list* Mohammad Nasim Fateh Zada, born 12/4/1966?” I can’t even pronounce it. Besides, that would be racial profiling, wouldn’t it?

As Obi’s Sister says, “What could go wrong?”

    Thanks for the link.

    Posting photos of the AWOL Afghan soldiers would make too much sense, you know, like ordering boom from Maine or accepting some help from the Dutch or…

    I know. Crazy.
    And you’re very welcome.

    Is that anything like the failure of police departments to mention the color of black bank robbers when they’re looking for them, but always mentioning the color of the WHITE bank robbers? OOPS! Is that a racist question?

    This is what happens when I go out for the evening. I missed this story entirely. As for photos, it would be “mean” to publish the photos, forget that there is a chance that these folks might kill people. It’s a very small price to pay to be PC.

    Oilbama doesn’t care.

    Two years? There should have been a nation wide alert on day one.
