Intelligence Sources Say that 4 Out of 5 Syrian Refugees Are Not From Syria. by The Elephant's Child

Syria2_442696bPresident Obama is set on his plan for admitting 10,000 “Syrian refugees” next year, and his press conference yesterday is not going over well even with the Democrats. Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson, typically an Obama ally, said that “at times he was patronizing, at other times he seemed annoyed and almost dismissive.”

“That’s not the tone you want to strike to the public, that’s not the tone you want to send to our allies and enemies,” said Democratic strategist Brad Bannon.

Obama saved his harshest criticism for Republicans, but focused most of his time fending off critics who say the Paris attacks show his counterterrorism strategy has been a failure. ISIS has continued to hold on to large swaths of territory — but its newly demonstrated ability to pull off a coordinated terror attack in a major European city should elicit from Obama some broader reevaluation of his strategy.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said Monday that the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) isn’t contained to its territory in the Middle East, presenting a sharp contrast with President Obama’s remarks on his strategy to combat the group.

“I have never been more concerned,” Feinstein said during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” calling for additional U.S. troops on the ground to combat the militants.

The media is, as usual, muddying up the situation. The “refugees, migrants, immigrants” usually described as “the Syrian refugees”are not all from Syria. Some intelligence sources say that 4 out of 5 refugees are not from Syria. They have apparently been told that they are welcome in Europe and will receive welfare and schooling and all sorts of benefits they can’t obtain at home. And once there, they are demanding, and particular, and ungrateful.

Who can possibly not have sympathy for those trying desperately to escape Bashar Assad’s barrel bombs and poison gas? FBI Director James Comey has said that it is impossible to vet the refugees, since there is no government in Syria to vet them with, as has Michael Rogers, NSA Director.  Attorney General Loretta Lynch claims they will screen them, how, she didn’t say.

Here are the top 15 countries of origin for refugees admitted to the U.S. in fiscal year 2015: Myanmar, Iraq, Somalia, Dem.Rep. of Congo, Bhutan, Iran, Syria, Eritrea, Sudan, Cuba, Ukraine, Burundi, Afghanistan, Ethiopia, and Colombia.

The New York Times has a map that shows where Syrian Refugees have so far been placed, and it includes states whose  governors have refused to accept refugees. It is an extremely difficult situation, and Mr. Obama seems unable to understand that it is not a matter of empathy — but of attempting to keep Americans safe from a massive attack, which is clearly coming.

Strangely, in this very strange time, the loose-knit online hacker group Anonymous “declared war‘ on ISIS this weekend, and reports that over 5,500 ISIS-affiliated accounts on Twitter have been exposed and taken down.

If you have not read The Atlantic article on “What ISIS Really Wants,” I would urge you to do so.  As the subhead says: “The Islamic State is no mere collection of psychopaths. It is a religious group with carefully considered beliefs, among them that it is a key agent of the coming apocalypse. Here’s what that means for its strategy — and for how to stop it.”

The invasion of Europe is the beginning of the end of civilization as we know it.

It’s pretty scary, isn’t it? I’m afraid that the administration has lost much of the public’s trust — at least those who still had any.

[…] In fact not all refugees are even from Syria. They are swarming in from other countries such as Myanmar, Iraq, Somalia, Dem.Rep. of Congo, Bhutan, Iran, Syria, Eritrea, Sudan, Cuba, Ukraine, Burun… via Syria to come to the US. Everyone from the President to the Pastors need to settle down a bit […]

Doesn’t look like women to me

Please take down this article, as it is full of lies and skewed statistics. More importantly, take a geography that picture isn’t about Syrian refugees. See above link to the real artilcle about that photo.

Comment by Todd Bannon

The photo is from 2013.

Comment by Frederick Jackson

People, you’re being played for fools. Google search that image, and you’d find out that it has NOTHING to do with the United States.

Comment by Isaac Thomas Riley (@ThePortOfRiches)

This photo was taken in August of 2013. Kurds going in to Iraq.. In Time magazine. Stop keeping American dumb :)) silly republicans

Comment by Ernest

This picture is from a 2013 Time Magazine. These are Kurds leaving Syria to get to Kurdish held land in Iraq. NOT Syrian refugees coming to the US>

Comment by Sue Narasky

This is misleading, the picture is from a 2013 Time Magazine article about Syrian Kurds fleeing to Kurdish held territory in Iraq. They are not Syrian refugees trying to come to the US.

Comment by Sue Narasky

Anyone reading this article thinking they are getting “news” or “facts” is a fool.
So you can add “fool” to your resume, right along side of “coward”.

Comment by Charles Brown

The Syrian refugees are a lot less pretty today. this is from the 90s i think

Comment by Buddakahn

The picture is indeed from 2013 apparently of Syrian Kurds heading for Kurdish territory.
There are NO Pictures of Syrian refugees heading for the US. I googled Syrian refugees. The article to which the photo was attached was about Syrian refugees that Malaysia might accept. I used it as a generic illustration of 10,000 refugees since there are no photos of Syrian refugees heading for the US. My bad. I assumed that readers knew that there were no photos of Syrian refugees heading for the U.S and would realize that of course it was a generic image. If you were misled, I apologize. The facts in the article are current and correct. The intelligence sources are European, which I probably should have added. My point, which you seem to have missed entirely is that 1). Obama is insisting that we accept 10,000 Syrian refugees immediately, and 2). They cannot be vetted. ISIS suicide bombers are shaving and posing as women to get to an appropriate place to self-destruct while injuring the most people. We have lots of ISIS fighters here, waiting to be activated, and The president has no right to inflict another bunch of Syrian refugees on us if we have no way of finding out who they are and where they’re from. That’s what he has already done with his open borders policies. His job is to protect the people of America, not to demonstrate his personal empathy which has no place in such decisions.
