What you are about to read is excerpted from an ABC News report, dated November 20, 2013 – over three years ago, thus long before anyone had the slightest inkling that Donald Trump would run for the presidency, let alone win the election. The bold print is mine:
Several dozen suspected terrorist bombmakers, including some believed to have targeted American troops, may have mistakenly been allowed to move to the United States as war refugees, according to FBI agents investigating the remnants of roadside bombs recovered from Iraq and Afghanistan.
The discovery in 2009 of two al Qaeda-Iraq terrorists living as refugees in Bowling Green, Kentucky — who later admitted in court that they’d attacked U.S. soldiers in Iraq — prompted the bureau to assign hundreds of specialists to an around-the-clock effort aimed at checking its archive of 100,000 improvised explosive devices collected in the war zones, known as IEDs, for other suspected terrorists’ fingerprints.
As a result of the Kentucky case, the State Department stopped processing Iraq refugees for six months in 2011, federal officials told ABC News – even for many who had heroically helped U.S. forces as interpreters and intelligence assets. One Iraqi who had aided American troops was assassinated before his refugee application could be processed, because of the immigration delays, two U.S. officials said. In 2011, fewer than 10,000 Iraqis were resettled as refugees in the U.S., half the number from the year before, State Department statistics show.
Do you remember the furor over the Obama administration’s 6 month ban on Iraqis coming into the USA?
Neither do I.
I suggest you keep the above article in mind when you watch, read and listen to today’s onslaught of attacks on Donald Trump for his three month ban on immigration from 7 terrorist-infested countries, until we get serious vetting procedures in place.
And feel free to marvel at the hypocrisy of our mainstream media any time you care to.
