Obama Lifts Ban on Libyans Attending U.S. Flight Schools, Training In Nuke Science

Since Obama helped dismantle the previous secular regime, Libya has quickly degenerated into a lawless terror state. We have had to evacuate our embassy (long after the slaughter of our Ambassador and attaches in the September 11 terror attack in 2012). Libya is in a constant state of jihad war, and Obama decides that now is the time to lift the longtime ban on Libyans attending flight schools in the United States and training here in nuclear science. This ban has been in place since 1983.

Flight school. Nukes. What could possibly go wrong?

Seriously, you have to ask yourself, who is Obama working for?

Obama Lifts Ban on Libyans Attending U.S. Flight Schools, Training In Nuke Science, By Adam Kredo, Free Beacon

Ban has been in place since 1983

The Obama administration has lifted longtime restrictions on Libyans attending flight schools in the United States and training here in nuclear science, according to a final amendment of the ban recently approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

Less than two years after the deadly terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is poised to sign off on an amendment reversing the ban, which was enacted following a wave or terrorist attacks in 1980s and prevents Libyans from studying these sensitive trades in the United States.

The original law effectively disqualified all Libyan nationals and those “acting on behalf of Libyan entities” from training in “aviation maintenance, flight operations, or nuclear-related fields,” according to the ban.

DHS said the prohibition is irrelevant now since the United States and Libya have worked to “normalize their relationship,” according to the directive approved by the OMB.

“The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is amending its regulations by rescinding the regulatory provisions promulgated in 1983 that terminated the nonimmigrant status and barred the granting of certain immigration benefits to Libyan nationals and foreign nationals acting on behalf of Libyan entities who are engaging in or seeking to obtain studies or training in,” the amendment states.

“The United States Government and the Government of Libya have normalized their relationship and most of the restrictions and sanctions imposed by the United States and the United Nations toward Libya have been lifted,” it says. “Therefore, DHS, after consultation with the Department of State and the Department of Defense, is considering rescinding the restrictions that deny nonimmigrant status and benefits to a specific group of Libyan nationals.”

Members of the House Judiciary Committee expressed outrage on Monday about the rollback in the law, maintaining that Libyans continue to pose a security risk to the United States, particularly if they are given access to train in the aviation and nuclear fields.

The terror threat continues and numerous news reports document recent terror-related activities coming from Libya,” the Judiciary Committee said in a statement. “Recently, the employees at the U.S. embassy in Tripoli were evacuated due to violence between rival militias near the facility.”

“Since then, many foreign governments have closed their embassies in Libya and evacuated staff as the violence has spread throughout the country,” the statement said.

DHS officials had promised lawmakers in April that it would provide key documents necessary for Congress to perform its legal oversight on the proposal to overturn the ban. However, DHS never turned these documents over, according to the Judiciary Committee.

Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R., Va.), the committee’s chairman, accused DHS of stonewalling and lashed out at the administration for “turning a blind eye to real terrorist threats that exist in Libya today.”

“The House Judiciary Committee has repeatedly sought information about the Administration’s policy reversal but political appointees at the Department of Homeland Security have stonewalled the Committee’s requests and have not articulated why it is in Americans’ best interests to change policy,” Goodlatte said in a statement.

“Given the ongoing volatility in Libya, it is unconscionable and completely irresponsible that the Administration plans to lift a longstanding policy that protects Americans and our national security from threats in the region,” he said.

Goodlatte further criticized the White House for “carelessly forging ahead with its plan to allow Libyan pilots and nuclear scientists to study in the United States,” particularly in light of the ongoing unrest and terrorist threat in Libya.

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R., S.C.), chair of the House subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security Subcommittee Chairman, also slammed the administration’s decision to reverse the ban.

“The burden of proof for advocating a change in the status quo lies with the Administration. Is post-revolutionary Libya secure enough to change the rules? Why now?” Gowdy said in a statement. “What evidence does the Administration have to assert the relationship between Libya and the US has indeed normalized?”

“It is extremely concerning that DHS is moving forward with these plans, but has not provided information on the policy change despite repeated requests from Members,” Gowdy said.
