Obama Threatens Veto of Legislation to Screen 10,000 Syrian Refugees
So how long will it take Americans to decide if the problem is "Islam" or "radical Islam" or "Hijacked Islam"? These days (after the Paris attacks), both parties are saying that the problem is only "ISIS Islam," and Obama is countering that Syrian refugees are only "Muslim widows," as if widows do not also blow themselves up?
Republicans, out of fear of being accused of "racism," want to pass a "screening bill" to thwart the process, instead of saying, "Muslims are generally dangerous and could potentially be terrorists."
First of all, it is 100% impossible to screen 10,000 Syrian refugees and weed out the terrorists. The U.S.-Syrian relationship is tarnished and Obama needs Syrian intelligence to screen these Syrians. Secondly, why would Syria's President Bashar Al-Assad want to help, especially since Bashar would not mind it if terrorists infiltrated the U.S. so that explosions in Times Square would make an argument of "I told you so."
And while both parties (Republican and Democrat) live in collective denial, let's see what it takes if only one terrorist makes it. The stupid Americans think that they only need to screen and filter out ISIS terrorists?
There are a ton of terrorist groups in Syria, and everyone and their cousin is involved, in one way or another. Does America expect that Syria has a database that links all of these terrorist groups to an FBI database?
