In what one day may be viewed as the most enduring image of the Obama era, President Obama sat down for an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopolous earlier this week and at one point said that ISIS had been “contained.”
Stephanopoulos: But ISIS is gaining strength, aren’t they?
Obama: I don’t think they’re gaining strength. What is true is, is that, from the start our goal has been first to contain, and we have contained them.
Meanwhile, in the real world, the death toll from Friday’s attack stands at 132 dead and over 350 people injured, many of them seriously so. The “contained” ISIS threat somehow broke containment and made it to Paris before conducting one of the most intricately orchestrated and devastating attacks in the West since 9/11. In fact, to the casual observer, this would imply that ISIS has not been contained at all, but is instead spreading terrifyingly close to all of us.
To make matters worse, it seems that the fears many conservatives had about the flood of Muslim refugees from Syria possibly being ISIS terrorists were well founded.
European officials believe, CNN’s Christiane Amanpour reports, that there is “a very professional new squad of terrorists inserting themselves into some of wthese migrant voyages.”
One of three bombers who detonated themselves at the Stade de France late Friday arrived on the Greek island of Leros on October 3 among numerous Syrian refugees, Amanpour reported, citing an unnamed French senator who was briefed by the Ministry of the Interior.
The man declared himself to be Syrian, said his name was Ahmad al Mohammad and was, under new procedures set up to help refugees, issued a new emergency passport or similar document.
From Leros, he traveled to Macedonia, Serbia and then Croatia, Amanpour reported.
The fingerprints from the bomber at the Stade de France match those taken when the man was issued his emergency travel document on Leros.
The two other suicide bombers at the stadium carried false Turkish passports, Amanpour reported.
Yes, these are the same people that President Obama plans to import for safe haven in the United States, even as his own law enforcement officials say they have no way to vet all of the refugees to make sure there are no terrorists hiding among them!
President Obama continues to prove that he is the most incompetent and disastrous President to hold office in the entire history of our Union.
Will the blithering idiot who said THIS just before the Paris attacks at least admit that he’s a blithering idiot?
