Report: 8 Syrians caught at Texas border in Laredo
Sure, some are good people. Maybe even most of them. But they do not bring democratic values, no support for gay rights and the equal rights of women, they in large majority would love to see the Jews in Israel wiped out in a new Holocaust, no love for Christianity either, and they believe in the eventual Islamic domination of the world. And amongst them, we can be sure, are embedded at least a few ISIS operatives hoping to gain free entry to our country, where they can plot the next big attacks.
As Rep. Ryan says, let's take a pause on this one.
While I am generally in favor of expanding immigration, just saying we can vet people does not get it done.
We announce that we are going to bring in 10,000 Syrians. Of course this will be seen by ISIS as an opportunity to bring terrorist to the US. If we miss only 1% of the terrorists who would logically infiltrate the Syrian refugees, that would mean 100 terrorists coming to the US.
That is far fewer than the number who accomplished the Paris attacks.
"Two federal agents operating under the umbrella of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) are claiming that eight Syrian illegal aliens attempted to enter Texas from Mexico in the Laredo Sector. The federal agents spoke with Breitbart Texas on the condition of anonymity, however, a local president of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) confirmed that Laredo Border Patrol agents have been officially contacting the organization with concerns over reports from other federal agents about Syrians illegally entering the country in the Laredo Sector. The reports have caused a stir among the sector’s Border Patrol agents.
"The sources claimed that eight Syrians were apprehended on Monday, November 16, 2015. According to the sources, the Syrians were in two separate “family units” and were apprehended at the Juarez Lincoln Bridge in Laredo, Texas, also known officially as Port of Entry 1."
Instead of taking so many refugees, and for Europe to take so many more, why don't we create the safe zones that our military experts have been recommending?
There is ample precedent for how well they work.
During the Saddam days we declared Kurdistan in northern Iraq a safe zone, and used our military power, particularly air assets, to make it stick, and look how well it has worked for us.
The Kurds are now a reliable fighting force against ISIS.
Let's give Barack Obama his due. He has been appeasing our enemies, Iran, Putin, Assad, and frankly ISIS. His strategy morphed from degrade and destroy to contain, as though he could contain them.
Obama has the gall to admonish Netanyahu for retaliating when Israel is bombed by terrorists, a classic example of tolerance for intolerance. And the result is a rise in terror.
Astonishing that Obama has said he is going to maintain his (failed) strategy. This is due to his narcissistic tendencies that refuse to recognize when he is wrong. His delusions are recognized by our enemies, and we see the result.
It ain't pretty.
Obama is woefully inadequate to the leadership task. You can't effectively marshal a coalition by leading from behind.
Come to think of it, Obama's "we've got your back" is more than simply an expression. It happens to be where he likes to position himself, behind everyone else (presumably so he has someone to blame if things go wrong)!
So much for the world leadership position America once held before Obama. In seven short years he has managed to give away the leadership prowess and respect this country has fought over decades to attain and maintain.
And to believe that some 38% still think he is doing a "good" job. Of course, as far as most thinking Americans are concerned that depends on their definition of "job".
Obama has proven superlative at mendacity, ideological obdurateness, incompetence, petulance, hubris, narcissism and tone deafness, and, in deference to the quote in this article, incoherence! By those criteria the majority might agree!
Obama admitted months ago, he really has no plan or strategy. He can't seem to reconcile the intelligence he is getting from the Pentagon and CIA with his thoroughly discredited, obdurate ideology.
So, Obama retreats behind doubling down on what has proven completely ineffective. Obama's idea of "containment" compared to what of most rational people is like night and day. This is the same level of containment he thinks he has achieved with Iran and their nuclear ambitions in his "agreement".
Sadly, for all of us Obama's delusion persists regardless of how many facts reality throws at it.
Obama's claim that his foremost responsibility is to protect the American People, but then to continue to double down on refugee access to the U.S. is symptomatic of this man's total disconnect from reality. Numerous individuals in the intelligence community have flatly stated in interviews that there is no effective vetting in place to handle these individuals.
But that doesn't seem to deter Obama. One can't help but think that Obama has a screw loose somewhere. And as far as "American values" are concerned, he effectively stopped upholding them a long time ago, especially in the area of foreign policy.
Obana's policy is simply no policy, No strategy.
Our reckless withdrawal from Iraq led directly to the growth of ISIS.
After years of cultivating ties with the tough Sunni tribes in the north, the ones who had aligned with Al Qaeda jihadists in the aftermath of Saddam's defeat, the U.S. had achieved a kind of partnership with these groups who feared the Shi'ite majority government that replaced the Sunni dictatorship. They worked with us to kill the extremists: the "awakening".
Unfortunately, when the Bush Administration ended, so did this partnership; its architect, Gen. Petraeus, resigned in a personal scandal, Obama worked hard to pull the soldiers out, against the advice of the military, and the Sunni tribes were left to fend for themselves.
The Shi'ite-dominated military, amateurish but armed to the teeth with U.S. weaponry, proceeded to treat the Sunnis vengefully and brutally, and the Sunnis responded by allying once again with extremists.
And thus ISIS grabbed 25% of Iraq and became a global threat.
Happy now, Mr. President?
