|Breaking news most Americans have likely heard nothing about!|
Predictably you likely have not heard much about this story or the fact that Massachusetts National Guard officials said that there is no indication that these men pose any threat to the public.
And while that reassurance is all well and good and should theoretically instill calm in the minds of US citizens, remember that the officials making the claim are likely being told what to say by the Obama administration State Department.
This is of course a State Department that has little to no credibility when it comes to national security, fighting terrorism or even being able to recognize who the enemy that we are fighting actually is! (See 'Is the US screwed with Obama calling the shots in the war on terror?')
So what are some reasons why three senior members of the Afghan military would simply disappear?
Here are some but certainly not all of the possibilities:
- They went sightseeing,
- They went to look-up some old relatives who emigrated here from Afghanistan,
- They didn't like the food on the base so they went to a restaurant and got lost trying to find their way back,
- They wanted to try an authentic Philly Cheesesteak that can obviously only be found in Philly, lost track of the time and their cellphones died so they couldn't let anyone know where they were,
- They were homesick and hitchhiked to Logan International to catch a flight back home,
- They took a quick trip to Boston to see where the marathon finish-line is located,
- They are seeking asylum or,
- They left the base, disappeared and in some way are seeking to do our country harm?
If you haven't heard about this story these are the details. Please note the predictable although less than reassuring sentence that is hi-lighted in red:
(CNN) — Three Afghan National Army soldiers, who were in Massachusetts for training, have gone missing after a trip to a shopping mall, authorities said. It’s the second time in week that Afghan security trainees in the United States have disappeared.
The three soldiers do not appear to pose any threat to the public, the Massachusetts National Guard said.
Earlier this month, two Afghan police officers training with the DEA wandered off during a sightseeing trip to Georgetown, CNN affiliate WJLA reported.
They decided they wanted to stay in the United States, but authorities found them and sent them home.
The three men currently missing in Massachusetts are Afghanistan National Army Soldiers Maj. Jan Mohammad Arash, Cpt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada, and Cpt. Noorullah Aminyar.
They arrived in the United States on September 11 for Exercise Regional Cooperation, an annual event, the guard said, and were quartered at Joint Base Cape Cod.
The three were reported missing by base security late Saturday and were last seen at a Cape Cod mall in Hyannis.
“Base and exercise officials are working with local police and state authorities to locate the three Afghans,” the guard said.
Troops from six nations are participating in the exercise, which runs through Wednesday and will go on as scheduled, the guard said.
Roughly a dozen Afghan soldiers are still participating.
