Libyan Pilots, Scientists, to Train in US

The US Office of Management and Budget has reportedly approved a controversial Dept of Homeland Security (DHS) rule to ease the way for Libyans to attend U.S. flight schools.

It was put in place in the 1980s after a wave of Libyan terrorism and House Republicans say the ban should stay in place.

Republican Congressman Bob Goodlatte said the proposed rule would “lift a longstanding prohibition on Libyans coming to the U.S. to attend flight school, to work in aviation maintenance or flight operations, or to study or seek training in nuclear science.
