How many such incidents must occur before authorities begin to reconsider the wisdom of such programs in the first place?
From AP, with thanks to Cindy:
WASHINGTON — U.S. authorities are searching for 11 Egyptian men who arrived in the United States last month but failed to turn up at Montana State University for a scheduled academic program.
According to the FBI and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials, the men were among a larger group of students who arrived at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York from Cairo on July 29 with valid visas.
FBI Special Agent Richard Kolko said there is no threat associated with the men….
Sure. That’s why they’re hunting for them. Of course, there is no way that Kolko or anyone else can know whether or not they are jihadists. What he means by this is that they aren’t on anyone’s Al-Qaeda list.
The official said the government probably will seek to send the students home once located because they have violated the terms of their visas.
No worries. Plenty of opportunities for freelance jihadists in Egypt.
