Round and round the Mulberry Bush

I saw an article last week about “missing” foreign personnel. Hmmm- I will let you read it

17 Afghan Soldiers Went

AWOL from U.S. Military

Base

American authorities are on the lookout for at least nine Afghan soldiers who remain at large in the United States since deserting a U.S. Air Force base in Texas, where they were stationed to study English.

The soldiers have “all access” credentials for U.S. military facilities,”

Isn’t that just grand? They have “all access” to military bases.  Here is more

Fox News has a better, more detailed article here.

The Afghans were attending the Defense Language Institute at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas. The DLI program teaches English to military pilot candidates and other air force prospects from foreign countries allied with the U.S.

“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.”

I am well aware of the joint training “opportunities” afforded our “partners” around the world. Lackland has a HUGE number of the types. These people are really starting to piss me off! do the joint training on their soil- not ours! And that they admit these guys went missing over the course of two years and we knew nothing about it sends my blood pressure through the roof!

Today Pamela left me a tip in the thread below. How;s this get you?

‘Simultaneous incidents’ lead to lockdown at NJ Navy base where Hindenberg exploded in 1937

Lakehurst merged with the Army’s Fort Dix and McGuire Air Force Base last year as part of a joint base initiative to make the military’s first three-branch base.

We may never know what prompted the lock down. Interesting to me that the base is home to the Naval Air Engineering Center. Any chance these folks have anything to do with engineering a fix for the problem in the Gulf?

Or maybe some of the missing Afghani’s turned up? After all- the Afghan AWOLs were pilots learning English and the article on the shutdown says

one of its main missions relates to the equipment used to launch aircraft from carriers at sea.

Sorry- I don’t believe in coincidents.

Our bases need to be for military personnel ONLY and these missing potential Islamofascist terrorist need to be rounded up ASAP!

  1. PMM: We may never know what prompted the lock down.
    —————–
    More true, perhaps, than any of us could have imagined. NPR news at noon reported that the lockdown was over. Just a blip. Not. At least not in our estimation.

    Not to make little of this situation, but sometimes I think O just arranges things to keep the little people stirred up. I think he likes to create chaos, then sit back and laugh. I used to think the same of GWB, but if O is doing it, he does it much better.

    • Watch the other hand! While they are distracting us – what are they doing while our attention is elsewhere?
      This is like fighting the hydra! How do we keep track of all the heads?

  2. vented sleave pipe to capture all oil of the well head in Gulf of Mexico
    sleave pipe fits over the 21 ‘ riser pipe and over flange at the base of riser, at bottom of sleave pipe is spring loaded hooks that clamp on to second flange that bolted to the riser pipe fange on inside of sleave pipe weld a ring that rests on the riser pipe flange , now you have a 42’ pipe collecting all the oil , put a t in the new riser sleave pipe and hook a pipe line to shore to a refinenery to avoid hurracane season
    If you persue or develope or patent this idea , I would like 10% Royality and Employment

  3. I just got done watching NJN News. The incidents at Lakehurst, which they refer to as a MegaBase were as follows:
    1. Someone thought they heard shots being fired.
    2. A commercial deliveryman attempted to deliver product to the base. It was discovered that he had a gun, and he was not allowed in.

    An investigation turned up no evidence of shots being fired. Eventually, but not just yet, a video of this broadcast will be available – FOR ONE WEEK ONLY – at this location:
    http://www.njn.net/television/webcast/njnnews/monday.html

    Sometimes the video provides headlines you can click on, sometimes not. If not, this story is about 12 – 14 minutes into the video.

    This is usually an excellent source of NJ information; however as you can tell their coverage on this was minimal. Hope it helps, though.

    • Ft Dix was a basic training base long ago. It’s where all the boys went that signed up or got drafted whne I was in High School.
      The whole joint base- mega base- consolidation thing is nuts in my opinion. Just put them all in one location to make it easy for the terrorists to find. Smart- real smart.

  4. Obama doesn’t want to secure our border along Mexico and he is more than happy to allow non-military Afghans have full access to our military camps….I have to wonder who he’s really working for.

  5. Commercial driver at Lakehurst/gun:
    This morning on NBC crawl: driver was FEDEX. Gun was registered.

  6. Watch the latest news video at video.foxnews.com

    We have been invaded and occupied! WTF???

  7. Wow, PMM…so glad you showed us this! Doesn’t it enrage you???? And Obama wants to let them waltz in and as long as they’re here…give them voting rights and free health care. Why the rest of this country is not up in arms over this is beyond me. Oh yeah, the MSM won’t report it or make a big deal out of it. They’re more concerned what Sarah Palin is doing in her backyard.
