  1. More Racial Profiling: So what if he did not want to learn how to back up, like those that did not want to learn how to land an airliner.

    A truck-driving student is in custody in Boston after raising suspicions when he wasn’t interested in learning how to back up his rig.

    WLVI-TV (Ch. 56) reported last night that the would-be trucker is a 28-year-old Muslim from India and had overstayed his visa. An investigation is under way to see whether there is any connection between his unusual behavior and a terrorism plot. Federal authorities were alerted by instructors at the Nationwide Tractor Trailer Driving School in Smithfield, R.I., WLVI reported.

    The student was described as a resident of New York, with driver’s licenses from New York, New Jersey and Rhode Island.

    “Every indicator was there,” R.I. State Police Major Steve O’Donnell told WLVI. “Any one of these things alone is fine, but four or five together . . . ”

    who was trying to obtain a commercial driver’s license and permit to haul hazardous materials.

    overstaying his student visa.

    “He showed no interest in learning the fine art of driving a tractor-trailer. He had no interest in learning how to back up.”

    “There’s no nexus to terrorism we can prove,” O’Donnell said. “Sometimes there’s no way of telling and we don’t want to wait to find out.
  2. Did the FBI actively block each and every effort by agents to investigate these people, like they did last time (conincidence #328)?
  3. That could be, since racial profiling is a no no.

    What's the harm in allowing illegal aliens to have driver's licenses?
    Driver's licenses are tickets into the American mainstream. They allow residents to establish an identity and foothold into their communities. They help you open bank accounts, enter secure facilities, board planes — and drive tractor-trailers carrying hazardous materials.

    Must I remind you that the 9/11 hijackers obtained some 364 separate pieces of identification, including driver's licenses

    A joint investigation was initiated by investigators from the Rhode Island State Fusion Center, the Federal Bureau of Investigation Joint Terrorism Task Force in Rhode Island, New York & New Jersey, and the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement after driver's school officials became concerned about his suspicious behavior.

    As in several other cases since 9/11, it was alert private citizens who notified the Department of Homeland Security of Mullawala's suspicious behavior. They will no doubt be labeled Islamophobes and bigots by the usual grievance-mongering mob.

    Over the past two years, the FBI has put law enforcement officials on high alert for U.S.-based operatives connected to al Qaeda who may be in possession of commercial driver's licenses and may be planning to use truck bombs.

    In Boston, suspected al Qaeda agent and illegal alien Nabil al-Marabh obtained a license permitting him to drive semi-trucks containing hazardous materials, including explosives and caustic materials.

    In Minneapolis, suspected al Qaeda operative Mohamad Elzahabi, who obtained a green card through a fake marriage, was able to obtain a commercial driver's license to drive a school bus and to haul hazardous materials — despite FBI knowledge that Elzahabi had been tied to terrorism.

    Earlier this year, more than 200 Somalian and Bosnian immigrants illegally obtained Missouri commercial driver's licenses or certifications to handle hazardous materials through a West Plains truck-driving school that had a contract with the state, according to federal prosecutors.

    In just a few short weeks, Democrats led by Nancy Pelosi — a staunch opponent of strengthened ID laws and strict immigration enforcement — will reassume power in Washington. An open borders-friendly White House has expressed willingness to deal with them. So we know who supports illegal alien workers and potential terrorist drivers waiting for amnesty. But who will stand up for us?
