So sayeth Elizabeth Trudeau, SpokesMagoo for the U.S. Dept. of State:
We stand behind our screening process for visas.
That would be the selfsame “screening process” that allowed this woman, this terrorist “housewife” and “new mother,”
into our country to murder 14 innocents and wound another 21 innocents in a cold-blooded act of terrorism, along with her “radicalized” husband. Isn’t she lovely? If you want to see her face, it’s uncovered here. From the link:
Malik was described as a shy, quiet person who kept to herself, according to Farook’s sister and her husband …
Yes, shy and quiet, keeping to herself, until she doffed that niqab, donned her tactical gear, armed up with guns and “devices”, and went to war against the infidels. That would be us. All 90 pounds of her, according to her family’s lawyer:
She was never involved in shooting. She’s probably about 90 pounds, so it’s unlikely she could even carry a weapon or wear some type of a vest or do any of this.
Hmm. Tell that to the cops with whom she had a shootout. Maybe she had some training the lawyer didn’t know about? Perhaps back in Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, or even in that backyard, where her husband said he liked to target shoot?
But let’s get back to SpokesMagoo (as in nearsighted) Elizabeth “Smarmy” Trudeau. In the best tradition of an Obama acolyte, like her boss who never admits to a mistake, shortcoming, or failure of any kind, Trudeau “stands behind” the screening process for visas–the very flawed process that let this murderous black widow into our country.
What does Ms. Trudeau have to say to the families of the dead and wounded? Nada, apparently, except for some variation on “it’s not our fault.”
This process for immigrant spouses is actually more stringent than the process that will be used to “vet” the Syrian “refugees” that Obama wants to bring into our country–tens of thousands of them.
The fiance visa program has one of the more rigorous security screening processes — presenting far more hurdles than other avenues for foreigners to enter the U.S.
It requires an applicant to submit a standard non-immigrant form, with personal and security questions, plus certificates from police in every country an applicant has lived for over six months, a medical examination, a passport, documentation of financial support, proof of the relationship with a U.S. citizen and various fees. Applicants who are granted a fiance visa receive a sealed file of personal and government documents, which must be kept sealed and presented to security officials upon entry to the U.S.
And yet, somehow, Tashfeen Malik, terrorist murderer, passed with flying colors. Seems there must be SOMETHING wrong with the process.
Does political correctness come to mind?
The Syrian refugees, many of them, have no documents whatsoever, and there are no databases in Syria against which their identities can be checked. But be assured. Obama will see that they’re vetted. They’re going to be interviewed. Any potential terrorists will surely admit to being jihadists.
Oddly, we’re told that there is very little information for the news media to report about Tashfeen Malik. It would seem that the file at the Dept. of State ought to be chock full of information about her.
Nevertheless, not to worry. Don’t be alarmed. Ms. Trudeau goes on to say,
We continue to revise, we continue to look at this. But these are process that happens [sic] around the world, every day, in our U.S. embassies. … But at this stage, you know, we stand behind those processes.
Reassured? Don’t worry. Be happy. She’s “satisfied!” Aren’t you?
Sooner or later, they might get it right. It just takes time, you know–to perfect the process. In the meantime, they do stand behind the current process.
In the meantime, how many more of our people will die, while Obama blames the means instead of the ideology, the ammunition instead of the mindset of these murderers? Islamophobia instead of political correctness? Or worse.
