What is wrong with the FBI?

I was going to do a post on how wonderful my girlfriend is - but she dumped me today so I figured I'd do a post on something that really pissed me off today.

The FBI is either naive or just trying to hard to be politically correct. Lets start with the story that started this thought of mine:

Yahoo News
MINNEAPOLIS - Three Egyptian students who were being sought for failing to turn
up for an exchange program at Montana State University were taken into custody
Wednesday, more than a week after they arrived in the United States.

One student was arrested in Minnesota, and two others surrendered to authorities in New Jersey. They were among 11 students being sought by law enforcement after they failed to attend a month long program on the English language and U.S. history and culture in Bozeman, Mont., the FBI said.

Eslam Ibrahim Mohamed El-Dessouki, 21, was taken into custody in Minneapolis on an immigration violation. Two other students — Mohamed Ragab Mohamed Abd Alla and Ebrahim Mabrouk Moustafa Abdou, both 22 — surrendered to police in Manville, N.J., after hearing media reports that they were wanted, FBI spokesman Steven Siegal said. Eight students remain at large. They arrived in New York on July 29 as part of a group of 17 students. Six students reported to Bozeman on time.

The missing students pose no terrorism threat, the FBI said.

Let me say that again - "The missing students pose no terrorism threat, the FBI said."

What is WRONG with this? Lets look back at September 11th, shall we? Oh yeah - one of the hijackers entered this country ON A STUDENT VISA! 2 others were approved on student visas AFTER entering the United States! Maybe, just maybe, we should start watching people with student visas from Muslim countries a little closer?!

Am I the only one who's appalled by this?

And don't start giving me that "It'll violate their constitutional rights" bullshit - Why does the constitution apply to people who aren't even citizens of this country?!

Well, that's my 2 cents - let the flames begin.

If they pose no threat they wouldn't have mentioned it.
