Adding the word "Egyptian" shouldn't void the "alert".
Yes it would trigger scrutiny with immigration and custom enforcement, but it wouldn't trigger "terrorist alert".

Exactly, but this isn't what you or the article are doing.

I agree.

This does not appear to be a "terrorist alert"

Quote:
"We do not know of any association with any terrorist or criminal groups. There is no threat associated with these men. We have simply asked law enforcement's assistance in locating them so that the FBI and ICE may interview them."

The fact it was even mentioned is alert enough, that's why I put it in quotes.
Quote:
Rep. Peter King (R-L.I.), who chairs the House Homeland Security Committee, said the situation "has to be taken very seriously."

"Having a number of students from an Arab country arriving on student visas and disappearing is cause for concern," he said.
The fact that Homeland Security is even involved and his quote above speak otherwise...

Homeland Security is now the umbrella organization for many of the individual government functions (part of our reaction to 9-11), including all immigration issues.

just some "electioneering".

people going to the polls today
need a dose of fear
to remind them how to vote


they release these "so-called" claims

at times when a little manipulation can make a difference

there is a pattern of "exaggerating" claims that advance their (the Admin.) cause

and "minimizing, suppressing, and even covering up" claims that can damage their cause

Exactly, we'd treat it like a missing persons investigation rather than use it to strike fear.

What's the big deal about some Egyptian students who didn't show up for a class? Why assume they're dangerous?

Ah, yes. The same group that claimed (i) Osama would be captured right before the election and (ii) each raising of the terror alert was politically motivated now brings you yet another episode of "this is all just propaganda!"

According to CNN there are currently 3.6 MILLION visa violators in the US (ie. people who went missing). Why are they reporting these 11 specifically?

Slow news day?

The attention span has lapsed on the Hezbollah rocket attacks, people need something new, something fresh.
