This is the vetting process the White house wants America to rely on.
Tashfeen Malik, one of the Islamic terrorists who killed 14 people in San Bernardino, passed three background checks before being allowed entry all while her social media accounts were rife with posts praising jihad, the New York Times reported.
Authorities have just recently uncovered the postings while tracing the history of Malik and her terrorist husband Syed Rizwan Farook as immigration officials generally don’t check social media postings as part of the vetting process, according to the Times.
Malik underwent two screenings before being allowed to enter the country and still a third when she applied for her U.S. green card. None of them caught her extremist postings.
“That assumes, and this investigation is still under way, that there were flags that were raised or should have been raised in the process of her admission to the United States, and I am not prepared to say that and I’m not prepared to make that declaration,” Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said Monday.
“Somebody entered the United States through the K-1 visa program and proceeded to carry out an act of terrorism on American soil,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Thursday. “That program is at a minimum worth a very close look.”
Fox News’ Gretchen Carlson took a closer look and some of the questions she found on the K-1 visa application, the application Malik used to gain entry to the U.S., were stunning.
“Do you seek to engage in terrorist activities while in the U.S.?”
“Have you ever / do you intend to provide money / support to any terrorist groups?”
“Do you have any skills or training in explosives, nuclear, or chemical experience?”
“Have you ever been a member of, or been involved with a paramilitary unit?”
