A classified memo from the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) revealed that Islamic extremists have in fact attempted to enter the United States using the refugee program. Shocker!
Intelligence officials have determined that Islamic extremists have explored using the refugee program to enter the United States, they told the head of the Homeland Security Committee.
Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas) revealed portions of a classified letter from the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) on Monday, which offered new claims not previously disclosed by the Obama administration.
… The NCTC has identified “individuals with ties to terrorist groups in Syria attempting to gain entry to the U.S. through the U.S. refugee program,” the intelligence agency told McCaul in a letter.
President Obama has not only refused to admit this was a possibility, but he openly mocked Republicans for daring to consider that letting thousands of Syrian refugees into our country could be a national security risk.
Obama sarcastically told CNN back in November:
“We are not well served when, in response to a terrorist attack, we descend into fear and panic,” Obama said. “We don’t make good decisions if it’s based on hysteria or an exaggeration of risks.”
“Apparently they are scared of widows and orphans coming into the United States of America,” he said later. “At first, they were too scared of the press being too tough on them in the debates. Now they are scared of 3-year-old orphans. That doesn’t seem so tough to me.”
Here’s a tip for our commander-in-chief: we do not ‘make good decisions’ if we ignore counter-terrorism memos, either.
Just because progressives like Barack Obama shout propaganda over and over again doesn’t make it true. Sooner or later, the truth always finds its way into the sunlight.
