Pilots arrested: false immigration docs

Just saw on Fox News that a handful of airline pilots have been arrested on false immigration document charges. One was reported to be from AE. The story is just coming in, so I'm sure it will take a while to straighten out. However, I see our stance on airport security procedures being severely weakened by this development. I'm guessing that these pilots were just regular joe foreigners who faked their way into US pilots jobs, but it took the 9/11 dragnet to blow their cover. No matter what their motives were, don't expect any sympathy at the magnetometer anymore.
