7 Afghan Military Students AWOL from US Training Facilities in September

Afghan military students are coming to America under the pretense that they will one day return to Afghanistan and defeat the Taliban, ISIS, and Al-Queda using U.S. tax payer funded training.  

There is only one problem. Once they get here, they somehow disappear.

Four students were considered absent without leave, or AWOL, from International Military Student programs over  Labor Day weekend, and three more during the September 17-18 weekend, Patrick L. Evans, a Pentagon spokesman, confirmed to Fox News in an email.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, officials have since learned that at least two of the Afghans may have left the U.S. Their disappearance comes on the same weekend that Ahmad Khan Rahimi used improvised explosive devices to try and kill Americans.

This is not the first time that our government has dropped the ball.  The Department of Defense can still not account for one of the two Afghan men who disappeared from a base in Georgia last December.
