Three Afghan National Army soldiers are missing from a Cape Cod military base where they had been taking part in a training exercise.
The Massachusetts National Guard reported that the three were reported missing by security personnel at Joint Base Cape Cod late Saturday, and said there is no indication that they pose a public threat. A statement identified the soldiers as Maj. Jan Mohammad Arash, Cpt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada, and Cpt. Noorullah Aminyar.
U.S. military officials told The Associated Press that the men arrived at Camp Edwards on Sept. 11. They were last seen during a day off at the Cape Cod Mall in Hyannis.
Massachusetts National Guard spokesman Lt. Col. James Sahady told the Cape Cod Times that the men “had the freedom to come and go.”
“If they were off-duty, they could go to McDonald’s or the mall,” he said.
So? No worries; I’m sure they’re just out there doing jobs Americans won’t do. We should bring them out of the shadows and welcome them with open arms, plenty of welfare boodle, and Democrat Socialist voter registration forms. They have full Constitutional rights just like everyone else in the world does, and hey, it’s not as if we’re going to deport them all anyway. Right, Boehner? McCain? Rubio? Anybody…?
All sarcasm aside, and assuming they aren’t here to blow some shit up, they faced returning to the bleak hellhole that is Afghanistan at some point. Who could blame them for trying to take advantage of our open-borders, no-rules immigration policy to avoid that fate worse than death? On the other hand, if they really wanted to come here to stay, they’d have been better off just walking across the former southern border. Nobody would even be looking for them if they’d done it that way.
