Far from being contained, it is clear that ISIS has the capability to inspire and carry out terror attacks far removed from the territory it occupies. The Paris shooters were affiliated with ISIS and at least one of them had a Syrian refugee passport. The San Bernardino shooters seem to be inspired by ISIS and it remains to be seen if they were operating under direction from an ISIS controller. It has been reported that ISIS has inserted thousands of operatives into the refugee stream heading for Europe. At least twenty persons… military aged men… have been apprehended en route to the United States while using fake Syrian passports.
Now we find that ISIS has the capability to produce “authentic” Syrian passports:
With the U.S. and other countries on high alert for ISIS attacks, American authorities are warning the terror group’s followers may have infiltrated American borders with authentic-looking passports ISIS has printed itself with its own machines, according to an intelligence report obtained by ABC News.
The 17-page Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Intelligence Report, issued to law enforcement last week, says ISIS likely has been able to print legitimate-looking Syrian passports since taking over the city of Deir ez-Zour last summer, home to a passport office with “boxes of blank passports” and a passport printing machine. Another passport office was located in Raqqa, Syria, which has long been ISIS’s de facto capital.
“Since more than 17 months [have] passed since Raqqa and Deir ez-Zour fell to ISIS, it is possible that individuals from Syria with passports ‘issued’ in these ISIS controlled cities or who had passport blanks, may have traveled to the U.S.,” the report says.
What is important to keep in mind is that these are not “fake” passports, they are real passports. These are the same documents that Syrian “refugees” will be carrying and using for identification. And we know the refugee screening program is totally bogus.
Now to the incomprehensible.Despite a massive bipartisan House vote to suspend the Syrian refugee program, Alabama [mc_name name=’Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’S001141′ ] gave an interview to Breitbart in which he said, essentially, the fix is in for funding Obama’s refugee program:
“It’s going to be jammed through,” Sessions told host and Breitbart News executive chairman Stephen K. Bannon on Thursday morning on the show, which airs on SiriusXM the Patriot Channel 125. “Members of the Senate are very frustrated. We have no idea what the contested issues are [in a forthcoming omnibus spending bill] and how they’re going to be decided and who’s deciding.”
Sessions continued by noting that Congress is in this position in the first place because Democrats are blocking the appropriations process—but then Republican leadership going along with them by negotiating everything in the forthcoming omnibus spending bill in “secret.”
“It’s happening because the Democrats refuse to move the appropriations bills—13—we got one through,” Sessions told Bannon.
This is insane. The refugee vetting system is broken… in fact, after San Bernandino it looks like the regular visa system is broken, too. ISIS is inspiring attacks inside the United States. The administration will not allow Muslim organizations to be investigated. ISIS can make completely legitimate passports and Congress wants to go full speed ahead on bringing in more refugees, most of whom will have Syrian passports.
