    Well they haven't been doing a good job of it considering almost everyone involved in recent attacks were born in the west.

    I'll notify the CIA director that your analysis indicates the threat level is zero.

    Is there actually any evidence he'll present to back this claim up?

    It's obviously not zero, but it isn't any higher than the threat from people already here, and probably lower than the threat from further destabilizing the Middle East, by forcing refugees to stay in Turkey and Jordan.

    If by evidence you mean intelligence indicators, that conversation with the Senate Intelligence Committee would occur in a classified briefing. There will be a public forum for unclassified discussion.

    Since Obama is a Christian, it really is Christianity's fault when the next muslim blows something up.

    There's ISIS command and control in Syria, responsible for global ISIS attacks numbering up to 90 in various countries.

    Meanwhile Obama is expediting and ramping up refugee intakes.

    The sad thing is there are still people in denial that this is true - who don't understand the nature of this war at all.

    oh, so screw all the peaceful refugees who are trying to escape ISIS - just because some might be ISIS operatives? Leader of the Free World indeed...

    So what do you suggest we do, Witt?

    For all the criticism and namecalling I see from you, Fielding, Maxsix, and your ilk, I never once hear you all offer up any suggestions on what should be done? Can any of you do anything besides point fingers and call people Leftists?

    Send them to England. They love Muslims. There is your solution.

    They do have 2% more Muslims than we do. That's, like, SUPERLOVE!

    I propose 10% more. King Richard's ghost would love it.

    Strangely enough, if 12% of the UK population were Muslim, that'd still be less than the entire US Muslim population.

    Then maybe they should be less peaceful and fight Isis who is in their country. America has zero responsibility to save everyone in the world from oppressors. Your solution is to take in everyone. That won't solve the problem, it will just bring their problems here. This is all really elementary logic, you know...

    The US isn't even talking about accepting that many refugees, last I checked. That said, allowing terrorists into the country should be avoided. I have to think there must be a balance of accepting people based on thorough background checks. Many of the terrorists and mass killers we've seen recently are home grown Americans. Ideally, I'd like to see Syria restored to a free and livable country so their people aren't forced to flee abroad. No one should have to flee for their lives and rights.

    Are you kidding me? To flee somewhere, stuff has to be pretty bad. Most people are just trying to get by. So innocent and peaceful tailors and craftsman (i.e layperson) should just take up arms against ISIS. Wtf? The problem is a human one. Most of these refugees want a better life - to deny them allows the fact that they will look at other options, however flawed. America is an immigrant nation. That's among it's strengths. I never said "take everyone", but if there is a "Muslim" problem, the more we can take under our tent, the better.
