Obama Lifts ’83 Ban On Libyans Attending Flights School

From the Washington Free Beacon:

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

Ban has been in place since 1983

By Adam Kredo | August 12, 2014

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).

Is this to reward Libya for finally being taken over almost entirely by Islamic terrorists, like those who attacked our mission in Benghazi?

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…

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…

Huh? Thanks to a few well-placed cruise missiles and the invasion of Iraq we had actually ‘normalized’ our relationship with Libya, under Gadhafi. But Obama un-normalized it by removing the Colonel from power. And now Libya is in the clutches of full-blown terrorists.

So why do this now? Aren’t there any grownups minding the store?

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…

But don’t worry, as in all things, Obama knows what is best for the country. Just look at his record of success at home and around the globe.
