BOLO issued for Egyptian 'students of English'

Egyptian students who supposedly came to the United States to learn English, have now had a 'be on the lookout' issued for them. Has our government not learned the lesson that 'learning English' is a get-into-the-country-without-suspicion card that terrorist have used for years now? They are missing and could be anywhere in the US by now.

Isn't it odd that 11 Egyptian students go missing within days of the announcement that an Egyptian terror group has joined forces with them? That's the question asked by Mrs. P at Patum Peperium.

The men, who range in age from 18 to 22, were scheduled to attend a month-long program in U.S. history and culture, plus English language instruction, at Montana State University along with six other students. The group flew from Cairo and arrived in the U.S. on July 29. All entered the U.S. legally, but officials said the no-shows violated the terms of their visas and that the government would likely send them home once they turn up. ...

the students registered at Mansoura University in Mansoura, Egypt.

The government tightened the student visa process after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks when it learned that four of the hijackers had entered the country on foreign student visas.source

Sticky Notes in a comment at Gates of Vienna, suggests that 'perhaps they just couldn't find Montana'!?

Pamela at Atlas Shrugs, has the names of all the 'students' and she says:

"Maybe the FBI can put out photos of these would be terrorists. Check out the headline. "No threat." HTF do they know that? Why are they MIA? The FBI better stop covering for Islamic terrorists, ... These programs from Islamic countries must end. We are at war for Gd's sake. What is wrong with these people?Debbie Schlussel can't do all the work (more).

We find out today that there are 'security holes' in the new E-Passports

Electronic passports being introduced in the U.S. and other countries have a major vulnerability that could allow criminals to clone embedded secret code and enter countries illegally, an expert warned.

A demonstration late Friday by German computer security expert Lukas Grunwald showed how personal information stored on the documents could be copied and transferred to another device.

Crossfire War is reporting "The leader of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood organization Mohammad Mahdi Akef, was quoted today in the independent daily al-Masri al-Yom, that they had 10,000 volunteers “trained and equipped to fight side by side with the Hezbollah guerillas.” They have also promised to fight around the globe against Israeli and US interests. On the other hand the "Muslim Brotherhood Denies Sending Hirabahs to Lebanon, Hirabahs the Group Claims Don’t Exist"

I have not seen anything on Hot Air about this but Michelle Malkin in "Walks like an Egyptian", reports that Robert Spencer comments on the fact that the FBI is searching for them: "Sure. That's why they're hunting for them."

Rosemary at My newz 'n Ideas, says:

We are told that there is nothing worry about, but they may be armed and dangerous.

Do you think the FBI puts out a nationwide alert to capture just any old illegal? I dun't thin' so!

Heh, no kidding!
