FBI Director Jim Comey said during Thursday’s Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing that ISIS is able to communicate to “many, many” Americans and they tell people to join the fight on God’s side or “kill where they are”, kill as many as they can. It lures unmoored people. When they find any of these possible recruits, they go dark in encrypted files.
Syria is a “nightmare, Hell on earth” Director Comey said. As far as the refugees coming into the country, the FBI are able to efficiently touch all their databases when screening refugees, but, he said, “my concern there is there are certain gaps, I don’t want to talk about publicly, in the data available to us.”
“There is risk associated of bringing anybody in from the outside, but specifically from a conflict zone like that,” he added.
“There is no such thing as a no-risk enterprise and there are deficits that we face.”
Director Nicholas Rasmussen agreed that they can only vet against available intelligence holdings.
We haven’t had significant solid on-the-ground intelligence assets in Syria for years.
Unsurprisingly, Sen. Lindsey Graham, former member of the Gang of Eight, joined far-left Senator Patrick Leahy, to get more Syrians into the U.S. faster. We won’t even be able to figure out if they are actually Syrians.
The Hill reported that they are pushing forward with an emergency spending bill which will in part finance bringing refugees into the country. The bill will give Barack Obama another $1 billion which he can use as he pleases.
It’s nice of them all to be so kind and caring at the expense of Americans’ safety.
Graham, a presidential candidate, who always says, “if we don’t do something over there, the terrorists will be here!” is possibly bringing them here.
Even in a small town near me, we are getting 10 to 20 Syrians via Catholic Charities. The government will spread small numbers of the refugees throughout the country to preempt opposition.
The UNHCR is choosing our Syrian refugees from camps dominated by Sunni Muslims and as a result we have been averaging 97% Muslim. The concern is that there is a global jihad taking place and we can’t vet these people.
The politicians are gambling with our lives.
