"Missing Afghans Raise Terrorism Fears"

“During the month of September, seven Afghan students were considered absent without leave (AWOL) during international military student programs,” Pentagon spokesman Cmdr. Patrick L. Evans said.

Three of the Afghan military trainees fled from a Pentagon training program two weekends ago during the bombing spree in New York and New Jersey by Afghan-born bombing suspect Ahmad Rahami, raising concerns among security officials that the missing Afghan students may be linked to terrorism or plans for attacks in the United States.

The disappearance of the Afghans comes amid heightened fears of increasing Islamist terror attacks around the country. The attacks have included the New York area bombings and attempted bombings, a knife attack at a Minnesota mall by a Somali jihadist, and other regional shootings. (More)

Have we been remiss in vetting our exchange students?

"The attacks have included the New York area bombings and attempted bombings, a knife attack at a Minnesota mall by a Somali jihadist, and other regional shootings"

This may explain why MN is a tie at the moment.

When I worked in Leesburg, VA, I won a contest and the prize was a nice Red, White and Blue afghan crocheted by a group of local women.

Unlike the ones in the story, I still know where my afghan is.

Your tax dollars at play.
Remember, this is the administration that "mistakenly" naturalized 800+ people who were scheduled for deportation and has lost or lost track of or failed to vet the immigration of wives of known terrorists. (Sexist! Girls can be just as bad as boys!)
