Oh, Great: State Dep’t Says it Hasn’t Cancelled Passports of Any Foreign Fighters

Fantastic news, everybody: we’re doing pretty much nothing to prevent ISIS from traveling here to America.

It’s bad enough that the Obama administration has made a mockery out of border security, but this latest revelation truly puts the nail in the coffin of America’s security. The State Department admitted in a hearing on ISIS that they haven’t really taken any measures to control the U.S. citizens who have enlisted to join the fight with our enemy. They haven’t even taken the simple step of revoking the passports of these evil individuals.

As Secretary Kerry said, he does have the authority to revoke passports,” explained State Department adviser Robert Bradtke. “And this is something we would only do in relatively rare and unique circumstances because of the importance for average Americans [to] have the freedom to travel.”

Bradtke continued, “We would only do it also in consultations with law enforcement authorities. And we have not yet had any requests from law enforcement authorities to cancel the passports of ISIS or foreign fighters. So again, we have the authority; it is one tool. We do have other tools to use as well in this regard.”

We’re pretty sure we know who the “tools” are on this one. Daily Surge will have more to report on the matter after our staff ceases banging their heads against the wall.
