No, ask them why such lax laws would allow for anyone and their grandmother to enroll in flight school after what was learned from our past mistakes, but your question is not without merit. We only know part of the story of what happened on those flights.

What were our past mistakes? The passengers and the crew allowed terrorists to take over the airplane without resistance. The hijackers had no guns, bombs, pepper spray, nothing! They can go to flight school in their own country and then fly here on a commercial airplane so, I'm still not sure what you're trying to prevent.
