How Do You Just Lose 17 Afghani Fighter Pilots Being Trained In The U.S.?

There are a couple things Americans don’t want to worry about. One of them would be 17 MISSING AFGHAN PILOTS. Poof. Gone. Vanished. Buh-bye.

Where are they? Who knows? Yes, it is this bad:

A nationwide alert has been issued for 17 members of the Afghan military who have gone AWOL from a Texas Air Force base where foreign military officers who are training to become pilots are taught English, FoxNews.com has learned.

The Afghan officers and enlisted men have security
badges that give them access to secure U.S. defense installations, according to the lookout bulletin, “Afghan Military Deserters in CONUS [Continental U.S.],” issued by Naval Criminal Investigative Service in Dallas, and obtained by FoxNews.com.

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.”

Each Afghan was issued a Department of Defense Common Access Card, an identification card used to gain access to secure military installations, with which they “could attempt to enter DOD installations,” according to the bulletin. Base security officers were encouraged to disseminate the bulletin to their personnel.

I am absolutely stunned. They have security passes that get them…where? [Swearing a blue streak.] Ahem. To continue…here are their names. If you, like you know, happen to see one of these dudes…call someone important:
