US flight schools admitting foreign nationals without proper clearance

Brian Ross and Eric Longabardi report for ABC News that foreign student pilots are still finding their way into American flight schools despite strict regulations set in place following 9/11. "Under the program, no foreign national can receive flight training in the United States without approval from the Transportation Security Administration." But the policy is reported to be "conflicting and ambiguous" thus compromising the program meant to bolster national security. "The TSA says is revising its vetting process and has begun a series of flight school inspections "to ensure that flight training providers" are aware of the rules."
