The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) has confirmed the very thing the Obama administration has been repeatedly warned about — that individuals with ties to Islamic terrorist organizations will attempt to enter the United States under the guise of being Syrian refugees.
Judicial Watch reported Wednesday:
The disturbing admission comes amid robust assurances by the administration that the refugees are thoroughly vetted before entering the country. In fact, the State Department publicly guarantees that every Syrian refugee is rigorously screened because “nothing is more important to us than the security of the American people.” The agency also addresses public concerns involving resettling Syrian refugees by asserting that it’s a “myth” that “all Syrians are dangerous.” In fact, “none have been arrested or removed on terrorism charges,” the State Department writes in a bulletin. Admission is only granted “after the most extensive level of security screening of any category of traveler to the United States,” according to the agency.

Finally, this one had a sobering thought.
Interestingly enough, Republican presidential contender Ben Carson recently visited the Middle East to visit Syrian refugee camps. He reported that the refugees, for the most part, didn’t want to come to the United States.
