TSA: Unaware of Security Precautions & Allows No-Fly List to Obtain Pilot’s License

I guess they pick government employees these days by how stupid they are as it's the only explanation I can come up with.

Previously it was reported that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) had allowed twenty-five illegals to train at a flight school owned by an illegal alien. Of those twenty-five, six were actually able to get their pilot’s licenses. Now TSA is on the host seat again. Last week one of their officials testified that Americans who are on the no-fly list because they are allegedly linked to terrorism are still permitted by the U.S. government to attend flight school and receive a pilot’s license.

On July 18 in a hearing before the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Transportation Security, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) asked Kerwin Wilson, the general manager for General Aviation at TSA’s Office of Security Policy and Industry Engagement, “Would a U.S. citizen on a no-fly list be able to obtain flight training without undergoing a security threat assessment?”

“Mr. Thompson that is correct, but keep in mind the way the program is set up there is layered security put in place,” Wilson responded. “You’re right, initially a U.S. citizen who is on the no-fly list could commence flight training. *But once the individual receives a flight certificate, an FAA certificate, that individual is bounced against various databases as well [and] perpetually vetted, meaning that individual is vetted once a day, once a week.”

*A terrorist only wants the training, not the flight certificate, moron.
