I'm more than a decade after the attacks of 9/11 new report by the Government Accountability Office reveals.
That even those on the no fly list are able to trained -- US flight schools even today Alabama congressman Mike Rogers former FBI guy.
Had this to say on FOX & Friends on Saturday.
What we learned at the hearing -- has to -- didn't shocking revelation.
Was that if you are in this country illegally but you're on the no fly list you can still get -- -- -- and so we won't let them sit on the plane is a passenger who will -- -- not to get cockpit and fly.
-- -- His cousin -- on eleven and was working in the north tower of the World Trade Center has had sadly terrorism in his life really since he was nine years old.
When your father was killed by FAO and terrorists correct read -- Francis tavern in 975.
So what's your reaction to the fact that the TSA says.
You can't get on a plane -- you can learn to fly one.
It is so outrageous you can even put your arms around anymore I mean our government -- not gotten out of control -- all these agencies that.
The speech each other they don't speak to each other they don't communicate properly -- TSA will tell you can get on a plane where you know you can't you can't train but the FAA will give you.
A license if -- -- an illegal alien.
And and what did they do after 9/11 after I saw the planes hit I was in the trade center that morning I saw the.
-- buildings explode I saw people jumping.
And I thought that maybe.
By this time we would straighten something else we you know we did after -- treated to another bureaucracy homeland security and on the bureaucracies to try to fix the problems of the old bureaucracies.
Political we're getting we got nowhere in one case the TSA approved to fight training for 25 -- -- elements.
In the Boston area of -- thing we're one of the -- achieving yet which even which even owned by an illegal -- right.
So those guys all graduated sixth really there -- -- eventually awarded pilots' licenses yes and and they only found out about it because one it.
The the order of the school.
Was caught in traffic violation.
So think about that's one.
This one agents 11 flight school of thousands in this country so where's this going on besides.
It's it's you know it's Newt -- mind boggling.
-- what you re with the TSA said because they weighed -- on this and they said essentially this TSA is reviewing whether the current statute should be amended.
But let's review the specifics in the bill at the secretary's direction TSA is giving consideration to amending these regulations.
In your mind.
Is this is -- is just just incompetence.
Or do you think this is people trying to be politically correct to not doing -- illegal aliens you know Brian it's hard to know.
I mean it political correction used to be sort of -- a nuisance in our society it's become a noose around our next now people are dying because of it.
So it's hard to know people are doing it because.
Of complete now seasons or incompetence and either way.
It it almost doesn't matter we need to we need to stop -- we need to stop the bloated bureaucracy need to really understand it's the people.
That that are in control here we need to protect our own citizens so many times these hearings are almost scripted it's time to preen and attack -- -- But I really sense that these lawmakers were shocked by this well you know they they can stay they could say they're shocked by things but they are the lawmakers say the words we put in charge so it's no excuse excuse C -- -- even if they weren't there when these laws -- putting it in place.
It's their job -- job I need to know what happened -- network before I got there and it's their job -- You know I'm glad that they said there there were shocked because -- little honesty -- -- that.
But it's no excuse they have to -- and if the fix these things -- how to -- got to get to flight school well you know it happened before any of this and we we should have learned from -- -- up the other parties you -- -- -- pilot's license -- -- a plane into building units in the had to land the plane.
Boy got to do is be able to take it to keep the plane in the air and just by virtue of sending so -- to a flight school would allow them to do that and it's outrageous just to spell this out.
You're essentially saying the way the law reads right now I'm not gonna get on a plane to -- a no fly list but I can drive to a flight school and learn to fly a plane yet.
-- I need only in.
It in this guy and I hate come back keep going back in the -- but.
But only in this crazy world that we live in can that be possible.
Mean we had a debate in 2008 about having eight a driver's license you remember the Democrats of debating ocean and illegal alien have a driver's license Bulgaria and now they're giving pilot's license illegal aliens and Europe -- to people and Americans on the no fly zone.
Well look let's look no fly list.
And and they cannot they can take lessons that analysts said because he uniquely qualified to comment on this because what terrorism spinning your life for decades -- -- -- thanks so much a much -- prime.
