Just how obvious can Obama get away with making it that he does not mean this country well? On infodump Friday, State Department spokescretin Jen Psaki proclaimed:
“The United States has admitted 524 Syrians since 2011. We’re likely to admit 1,000 to 2,000 Syrian refugees for permanent resettlement in Fiscal Year 2015 and a somewhat higher number, though still in the low thousands, in Fiscal Year 2016.”
From about 100 per to thousands per year. Quite an increase. If insufficient resistance is encountered, the numbers will rise:
[Assistant Secretary of State Anne] Richard said the United States was already reviewing around 9,000 Syrian refugee cases referred by a United Nations agency and was receiving “roughly a thousand new ones each month.”
Something else recently exploded out of Syria, other than welfare colonists. Let’s see, what was it…
Oh yes — ISIS:
A senior FBI official has admitted the United States is finding it virtually impossible to screen out terrorists that could be hiding among the thousands of Syrian “refugees” heading soon to American cities.
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, according to a November 2013 ABC News report.
We have no presence in the failed state Syria, so we have no idea who these people are. But it won’t be long before we start finding out.
