Try to connect these dots. The OMB now gives approval for Libyans who may now attend flight schools here in the U.S., reported on August 12. Please let me know what the Office of Management and Budget has to do with this? Now we learn the same month that about a dozen planes went missing when terrorists took over the airport in Tripoli. It is reported that they are now in the U.S. Meanwhile our Happy Face President tells us there is nothing to worry about and has no plans.
Islamist militias in Libya took control of nearly a dozen commercial jetliners last month, and western intelligence agencies recently issued a warning that the jets could be used in terrorist attacks across North Africa.
Intelligence reports of the stolen jetliners were distributed within the U.S. government over the past two weeks and included a warning that one or more of the aircraft could be used in an attack later this month on the date marking the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks against New York and Washington, said U.S. officials familiar with the reports.
The state-owned Libyan Airlines fleet until this summer included 14 passenger and cargo jetliners, including seven Airbus 320s, one Airbus 330, two French ATR-42 turboprop aircraft, and four Bombardier CJR-900s. Libyan state-owned Afriqiyah Airways fleet is made up of 13 aircraft, including three Airbus 319s, seven Airbus 320s, two Airbus 330s, and one Airbus 340.
