And remember, dear readers: Barack Obama is the same p'tak who thinks that capturing, coercively interrogating, and putting on ice violent jihadists is a "recruitment magnet" for them, not rolling out the red crescent carpet for them and practically offering to supply all their anti-infidel ammunition:
The Department of Homeland Security as recently as 2014 upheld a secret Obama administration policy that barred officials from reviewing the social media accounts of those seeking visas, something that may have stopped San Bernardino shooter Tashfeen Malik from entering the country.
Not "may," "would".
The New York Times reported that Malik, a Pakistani woman who moved to the U.S. with a fiancée visa in May 2014, "had made little effort to hide" her support of violent jihad, and her desire to be a part of it.
This activity was quickly uncovered by the FBI shortly after Malik and her American-citizen husband, Syed Rizwan Farook, killed fourteen people at a [Christmas] party in San Bernardino.
Of three background checks conducted by immigration officials during the visa process, none uncovered Malik's activity on social media.
Why, you may ask? Oh, piffle, you know why:
"Had the authorities found the posts years ago, they might have kept her out of the country.
That's debatable at best. More likely is that it would have gotten her visa processed even faster.
But immigration officials do not routinely review social media as part of their background checks, and there is a debate inside the Department of Homeland Security over whether it is even appropriate to do so," wrote the Times.
Especially in a time of war when the enemy is infiltrating our country like water pouring into the Titanic after hitting the iceberg. Yeah, what need have we of enhanced security procedures now?
On Monday, ABC News reported that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson refused around that same time to end a secret Obama administration policy that prohibited officials from reviewing the social media accounts of visa applicants.
Gee, why do you think the Regime kept that policy on a "need to know" basis? Perhaps because there were to become fourteen pointed reasons why it was an abysmally bad idea? Whereas once the attack has taken place, they become a fait accompli we're helpless to do anything about, just as we're helpless to free ourselves from The One's Islamocommunist tyranny?
Oh, yes, and exposing that policy would have been "Islamophobic," I suppose.
"During that time period immigration officials were not allowed to use or review social media as part of the screening process," John Cohen, a former acting under-secretary at DHS for intelligence and analysis.
Which means, in essence, that no screening was permitted in the "screening process," other than what maximized the chances of importing as many violent jihadists into the U.S. as humanly possible.
The question of reviewing applicants' social media accounts was a topic of debate in the DHS, and was consistently opposed by the DHS Office of Civil Liberties and the Office of Privacy.
i.e. DHS Office of Sharia Imposition and the Office of Jihadist Privacy - until they're ready to reveal themselves with a bang and a hail of bullets.
"The primary concern was that it would be viewed negatively if it was disclosed publicly and there were concerns that it would be embarrassing," Cohen said in a recent interview.
Now why would they ever get the silly idea that looking the other way at the importation of avowed mass-murders might be viewed negatively by the general public? Or that Barack Hussein Obama and his Regime are effectively accessories to the mass murder the Muslim Bonnie & Clyde did carry out at O's facilitation?
This is the level of insanity We the People have inflicted upon ourselves, ladies and gentlemen. A POTUS who is literally wading in the blood of his ostensible countrymen, damned proud of it, and insisting that the solution is to illegally disarm all American citizens AND order local law enforcement to stand down. Presumably so as to make the transition to our Islamic Fundamentalist overlords' rule smoother, easier, and shorter.
But you know who the Caliph would still be....
....or so he thinks....
The only real question left is how high the Obama/ISIS death toll climbs. Whether we can do anything to stop it has already been conclusively answered.
