Jordanian Pilot: Fatal Conn. Plane Crash 'Not An Accident'

The survivor of a Tuesday plane crash in Connecticut, piloted by a Jordanian national, told FBI investigators it was “not an accident,” according to The New York Times.

The National Transportation Security Board’s initial investigation concluded the crash was “an intentional act,” in a statement Wednesday. The pilot, Feras M. Freitekh, came to the U.S. on a temporary student visa in 2012 for flight school. The legality of his immigration status is unclear. Federal Aviation Administration records indicate Freitekh was issued a private pilots license in May 2015, and verified his certification to fly a single-engine aircraft.

Freitekh’s potential motivations are unclear at this time. Local media report he was killed in the crash.

The leaders in this country will never get it right. We need all the established politicians and politically correct politicians out of office. No one gets enrolled in flight school unless they were born in this country - PERIOD!!

836 yes and I will ad that any Muslim born Americans who travel to the Middle East should have to go through extra scrutiny before they are allowed to enroll in flight school.
