Three Afghan Soldiers Visiting Cape Cod Have Gone Missing

Three soldiers from the Afghanistan National Army visiting Cape Cod, Massachusetts, for a military exercise have gone missing, according to the U.S. National Guard. The National Guard in Massachusetts says they believe at this time there is no threat to the public.

Maj. Jan Mohammad Arash, Capt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada, and Capt. Noorullah Aminyar were last seen at the Hyannis Mall Saturday evening, a National Guard source tells Cheryl Fiandaca of NBC affiliate WHDH.

A senior law enforcement source tells NBC News the FBI Field Office in Boston is aware of the disappearance and takes these matters seriously. The source tells NBC News that these soldiers are vetted by a wide variety of agencies very carefully before being allowed to travel to the United States.

Locally, the National Guard is asking for the public to provide any information if they know the whereabouts of the three soldiers.

The National Guard program is called "Regional Cooperation 2014" and has been held since 2004. According to a National Guard press release, "the purpose of Regional Cooperation 2014 is to increase participating nation's capabilities to conduct Stability Operations within internal borders and execute the range of operations conducted during United Nations mandated peacekeeping operations."

The soldiers stay at Camp Edwards on Cape Cod

They correctly view life in a Western first world country as a comparative heaven-on-earth.

But if allowed to stay, as soon as they could, they would start to tear things down around them to the low and backward third world level to which they are accustomed.

All pubs and strip clubs should be searched before going into a panic, that's where i'd be.

Re: Three Afghan Soldiers Visiting Cape Cod Have Gone Missing

Yep, was waiting for later news for more detailed development- but-

(CNN) -- Three Afghan National Army officers -- guests of the U.S. military at a training exercise in Massachusetts -- disappeared on Saturday and reappeared Monday in the custody of Canadian border guards.
The men are in custody at the Rainbow Bridge, a checkpoint on the border at Niagara Falls, and are being interviewed by federal authorities, Massachusetts State Police David Procopio said.
The military, State Department and other government agencies are remaining especially quiet about the choice the three Afghan officers made to go off the radar.
Maj. Jan Mohammad Arash, Cpt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada and Cpt. Noorullah Aminyar went missing Saturday after a trip to a mall. The three were reported missing by base security late Saturday and were last seen at a Cape Cod mall in Hyannis.
Authorities said they posed no threat to the public.
Shelbe Benson-Fuller, regional press officer at U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said the agency was notified by the Canadian Border Services Agency when the men were taken into custody.
Canadian officials declined to confirm if the three officers were seeking asylum.
Arash, Askarzada and Aminyar arrived in the United States on September 11 for the annual Exercise Regional Cooperation and were quartered at Joint Base Cape Cod, the Massachusetts National Guard said.
Their disappearance comes in the wake of an incident earlier this month when two Afghan police officers training with the DEA went missing for six days.
Mohd Naweed Samimi, 24, and Mohammad Yasin Ataye, 22, were training in Quantico, Virginia, and went missing on September 13. They were later found on September 18 in Buffalo, New York, according to DEA spokesman Rusty Payne.
The men, who Payne said were monitored by escorts at all times, never posed any threat or danger. They wanted to stay in the United States, but authorities found them and sent them home.
In both cases, the Afghan attendees at the training sessions were cleared and given visas by the State Department.
A source familiar with the process told CNN that officers are usually handpicked and vetted, including a complete background check, possible polygraph and interviews to determine whether they are a flight risk.
The source says that the three officers did not break the law.
The Massachusetts State Police concurred.
The Exercise Regional Cooperation, in which the three soldiers training in Cape Cod were participating, included troops from six nations. Despite their disappearance, the guard said the exercise has continued.
The purpose of the exercise is to train participating nations in "stability operations" and "operations conducted during United Nations mandated peacekeeping operations," according to the guard.
Roughly a dozen Afghan soldiers are still participating.
The Regional Cooperation exercise has been conducted annually since 2004, according to the Massachusetts National Guard. Tajikistan is the lead nation for conducting the exercise this year. The last exercise was held in 2013 and led by the Republic of Kazakhstan's Ministry of Defense.
Gen. Zahir Azimi, a spokesman for the Afghan Defense Ministry, told CNN that the ministry is investigating both incidents
