foreign Muslims on overstayed student visas, had to learn to
fly so they could fly the airliners into their targets. To do
so they attended an American flight school, where they

to land, only how to steer. As it should have, this set off
alarm bells in the flight instructor's mind, but because of
political correctness/diversity, he was too afraid to report
Once a politically correct IT incompetent has an IT job, she
is more interested in forcing her political beliefs on
customers and coworkers than in doing the job at all,
incompetently or not. For example, Alex Stamos
was CISO of Yahoo when he allowed the security hole that
caused Yahoo's massive data breaches. He then fled to
Facebook, where because he was more interested in forcing his
political beliefs on customers, he allowed the security hole
that caused at least one of Facebook's massive data breaches.
He then fled to extremely politically correct Stanford
Trying to be diverse and politically correct often ends up
meaning hiring foreigners (see IT Hiring:

forced on America to make up for historical discrimination in
the U.S., which foreigners today and their ancestors were
never subject to.
