Now that a senior FBI official has admitted openly that it is 'virtually impossible' to screen out terrorists that could be hiding among the thousands of Syrian 'refugees' (heading soon to American cities), maybe we need to be asking why the US is absorbing ANY of these people, when ISIS have said themselves they plan to infiltrate Europe/US disguised as refugees? What about the other 200 frickin' countries in this world- like a Muslim one! Wouldn't that make a lot more sense? Send them to Turkey, so they can return to Syria/Iraq once ISIS is fully neutralized...
The U.S. simply does not have the resources to stop Islamic radicals in Syria from slipping into the country through the State Department’s refugee-resettlement program, said Michael Steinbach, deputy assistant director of the FBI’s counter terrorism unit.
Separating legitimate refugees from terrorists was difficult enough in Iraq, where the U.S. had a large occupation force. Even then, the U.S. government’s vetting process missed “dozens” of Iraqi jihadists who slipped into the country posing as refugees and took up residence in Kentucky... In Syria, the challenges are much greater. That’s why Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, held hearings this week on the process of vetting refugees and sent a letter to the White House voicing the committee’s “serious national security concerns.” “We learned our lessons with the Iraqi refugee population. We put in place a USIK-wide background and vetting process that we found to be effective,” Steinbach told the committee Wednesday.
“The difference is that in Iraq we were there on the ground collecting (information), so we had databases to use,” he added. “The concern is that in Syria, the lack of our footprint on the ground in Syria, the databases won’t have the information we need. So it’s not that we have a lack of a process, it’s that there is a lack the information...”
Alas, that's just through the new Syrian refugee program: with Obama's WIDE-open southern border, I would find it extremely unlikely that ISIS has not placed any cells on US soil yet- unimaginable, really. That's on top of lone-wolves they're finding throughout the West, reached via the wealthy terrorist group's considerable online efforts. Now that we've seen how they're going to torch cages full of children, etc- one would have to assume there's NO limit to the savagery ISIS beasts are willing to inflict upon us, given the opportunity. And the Obama Administration presents them a hole big-enough (literally) to drive a truck through... the Islamists know the window of opportunity brought by zero US border security will likely close in a couple years. How could they not be here already? Got to be-
Perhaps Obama thinks a large-enough attack by the Islamic State or Hamas/Hezbollah -like say, Anthrax in a major city's water supply, or putting an airplane into the side of a nuclear reactor- will present him the opportunity to unleash martial law and cancel the next election. That requires some sort of catastrophe, and seeing that his efforts at igniting a race war haven't quite panned-out, maybe foreign Muslim friends can help him out with that, Hamas danced in the streets of Gaza when O'bumbles was re-elected, if you recall. I miss the days when I despised conspiracy theory- but in the bizarre and depressing Obama era, you can't be paranoid enough. Obama sure doesn't seem to give a hoot in hell about the threat these bloodthirsty maniacs represent to the western world, that couldn't be clearer from his actions, tone, and heavily-cloaked language... how else to explain it the way he keeps cowering and changing the subject. With the Obama regime, they always seem to find more upside (for themselves personally, as well as their hidden agenda) in disasters and decline of the United States, rather than anything good that ever happens. Unrest, fear, and dependency on government are what progs like, while safety, prosperity, and freedom do little to expand their control and chances for ongoing graft. Add to that secret meetings all the time with Hamas reps, the Iranians, and other terrorism-loving scumbags... it's difficult to not feel great fear for all our security. Obama and these (other) anti-American elements have a lot of overlapping interests right now, you know, while from my point of view the Administration is doing next to nothing to keep ISIS from darkening our doorway... They probably won't hit the White House anyway- that's likely right about were any possible presidential concern would end.
