    KHOU: 9/11 suspects’ flying teacher faces Houston drug charges

    The ex-owner of the Florida flight school where two 9/11 terror suspects learned to fly has been ordered jailed without bond after he was arrested in Houston on drug trafficking charges. Rudi Dekkers is charged with two drug conspiracy counts. Court documents show he was nabbed Dec. 2 in a federal drug sting while representing an international drug trafficker.

    First: The war on drugs is a war on all of us

    Second: This guy was scapegoated for 9/11, and probably forced into a high-risk, high-reward 0ccupation

    Third: What happened 11 years ago is water under the bridge.

    Fourth: "Dekkers was found in possession of about 40 pounds of cocaine and about two pounds of heroin."

    I have a lot of empathy for drug users who are caught up in it all. The legal system is the worst possible place to "help" them with their addiction. On the other hand, I have no sympathy for drug runners.
