• Mission Accomplished: Obama Admin Exceeds Syrian Refugee Goals

    In the past week, the Obama administration met, and presumably exceeded, the goal of bringing into the US 10,000 refugees fleeing the conflict in Syria. According to NPR  these Syrian refugees are idealized families, all eager to be Americans. They’ve withstood a rigorous screening process, would stand for the National Anthem, and have their daughters already peddling Girl Scout cookies. The truth is:

    The government has no idea whether these “refugees” sympathize with radical Islam or ISIS, or are inclined toward jihad.

    The Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, created this propaganda video that unwittingly juxtaposes the liberal fantasy against the reality of the situation.

    The “Interagency Check” that the USCIS (US Citizenship and Immigration Services) boasts about as part of their refugee resettlement process, cannot identify terrorists and Islamic extremists. Presumably, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is one of the federal agencies cooperating in the screening, and they are awful at identifying potential terrorists. In their defense, it is a nearly impossible task.

    Since September 2013, the CIA, at the behest of the Obama administration, has armed bands of Syrian rebels.

    According to the Washington Post, the arms shipments are “limited to light weapons and other munitions that can be tracked.”

    It’s a good thing, too, because it might have taken us longer to figure out that those weapons were being sold on the black market and used to kill two Americans in Jordan. Thank you, New York Times, for that lovely story. When weapons do end up in the hands of the CIA’s intended recipients, those people are terrorists, too. Oops.

    A British reporter, Anthony Loyd, was kidnapped by a group of “rebels” while reporting on ISIS in Syria. He managed to survive being shot twice in the ankle at point blank range with hands tied as a punishment for his attempted escape.

    The shooter?

    Well, he is a CIA-vetted “moderate” and was spotted waving around a Kalashnikov bought courtesy of the US taxpayers to celebrate a small victory secured by US air power.

    It is disturbing to know that we are arming and aiding radical Islamists who kidnap and torture Western journalists––but blindly relocating “refugees” to the United States by the thousands may be even worse. There is no reason to believe that interagency cooperation that the USCIS claims to use will be any more effective than the failed techniques employed by the CIA in Syria.

    As it turns out, terrorists, jihadis and ISIS sympathizers don’t register in any federal databases. Shocker, I know.

    The protocol outlined by the USCIS here is virtually useless for weeding out potential threats.

    Leon Rodriguez, the director of the USCIS, says

    “our approval rates are 80 percent, our denial rates are 7 percent, with the remainder on hold.”

    The screening process will let the US government know if they’ve gotten traffic tickets in the US or been arrested by INTERPOL, but if they host an online forum for jihadis, we’ll roll out the welcome mat for them.

    Jeh Johnson and the DHS want you to know that none of these people could possibly be enemies of the US, they may in fact turn out to be the next Albert Einstein or Elie Wiesel, and they don’t give a damn how unpopular this policy is anyway.

    This is what you call propaganda:
