An Inclusive Litany

3/13/02

In Florida, Huffman Aviation International received notice from the Immigration and Naturalization Service that it had approved student visas for two Saudi men to attend flight school there, exactly six months after the men had participated in the terrorist hijacking that destroyed the World Trade Center.

The New York Times also reports that "nearly seven months after Ziad al-Jarrah seized United Airlines Flight 93 and crashed it into a field in southwestern Pennsylvania, the Federal Aviation Administration continues to include Mr. Jarrah on its mailing list and has been sending pilot correspondence to him at an apartment in southern Florida that he rented last summer."

[Ed.: A full year after the terrorist attacks, the home page of the INS's New York offices, which boasts the most up-to-date information available, prominently featured a banner graphic of lower Manhattan with the World Trade Center towers still standing.]
