Re: “Americans on no-fly list allowed to learn to fly” (newstribune.com, 7-18).

Can you imagine that 11 years after 9/11 that the government is allowing people who do not have permission to be in this country (illegal aliens) to attend flying school in the U.S.? Can you imagine that a flying school in the U.S. is operated by someone who does not have permission to be in this country, according to the Government Accountability Office.

Is the government trying to recreate 9/11?

And in the meantime, as airline passengers, we are subjected to being groped by Transportation Security Administration agents simply because we want to use a commercial airline to get somewhere.

Wasn’t freedom great when we had some?
