We’re Up to SIX

…of the missing eleven Eyptian students.

…El Sayed Ahmed Elsayed Ibrahim, 20, and Alaa Abd El Fattah Ali El Bahnasawi, 20, were arrested at a residence in Dundalk, Md., outside Baltimore, by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.
Chicago police detained Ahmed Mohamed Mohamed Abou El Ela, 22, at OHare International Airport as he was attempting to book a flight to Montana, the FBI said. Immigration agents later took El Ela into custody.

With everything that’s gone down today, it’s worth revisiting our Homeland Security Chief’s initial reaction to these guys going missing.

Sensitivity toward Muslims is so raw that Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff this week felt compelled to express disappointment that the FBI put out an alert for 11 Egyptian students who failed to show up at Montana State University. They entered the country on visas, then vanished. Chertoff said not to worry, just a bunch of kids cutting class. No threat here.

I’ll bet he wish he could eat those words.

    Chertoff deserves to eat a grenade. Homeland Security secretary my ass.

    C’mon, John… Montana is perfect! I mean, it’s not like they can simply melt across the northern border undetected and then sneak back – right? This isn’t Mexico, y’know!
