How Hillary hides dangers of plan for Syrian refugees

A recent story about Hillary Clinton’s Syrian refugee policy doubles as a museum of her character flaws. This piece confirms that she is unfit for the Oval Office.

The Daily Caller’s Alex Pfeiffer reports that Clinton proposes that America more than sextuple its admissions of Syrian refugees. Obama invited 10,000 Syrian refugees onto U.S. soil in fiscal 2016. Clinton wants to balloon this figure to 65,000. Never mind that she knows this could be deadly.

Pfeiffer’s account details why voters must bar Clinton from the White House.

First, Clinton is as transparent as a bank vault. Secrecy is her default position. Pfeiffer quoted her remarks to the Jewish United Fund of Metropolitan Chicago in October 2013. Why are three-year-old lunchtime comments news? Because Clinton has concealed them since. These now are on the record only because Wiki-
leaks just publicized excerpts of her address. Clinton still refuses to release the full transcript of the speech.

Second, in another Wiki-
leaks revelation, voters learned how duplicitous Clinton is. As she told the National Multi-
family Housing Council in 2013, for political victory “you need both a public and a private position.”

Here, too, Clinton is as two-faced as the Roman god Janus. Publicly, she reassures voters that America can welcome Syrians safely.

“Look, we’re facing the worst refugee crisis since the end of World War II, and I think the United States has to do more,” Clinton told CBS’ Face the Nation in September 2015. “I would like to see us move from what is a good start with 10,000 to 65,000 and begin immediately to put into place the mechanisms for vetting the people that we would take in.”

But, privately, she says something completely different.

Middle East nations are coping “with the threat posed by extremism and particularly with Syria,” Clinton told the Jewish group in Chicago. “Jordan, because it’s on their border, and they have hundreds of thousands of refugees, and they can’t possibly vet all those refugees, so they don’t know if, you know, jihadists are coming in along with legitimate refugees.”

So, privately, Jordan “can’t possibly vet all those refugees,” from Syria. Yet, publicly, America should increase Syrian refugee inflows six-fold and assume that we can screen them effectively.

Third, FBI Director James Comey called Clinton’s abuse of state secrets in Emailgate “extremely careless.” Clinton, again, is being extremely careless with national security.

ISIS brags about blending jihadists among innocents fleeing battle-scarred Syria. Through this perfect camouflage, terrorist killers have emerged.

“Over the past six months, more than three dozen suspected militants impersonating migrants have been arrested or died while planning or carrying out terrorism,” Anthony Faiola wrote in The Washington Post last June. “They include at least seven directly tied to the attacks in Paris and Brussels.” ISIS terrorists murdered 130 people in Paris last November and 32 in Brussels last March.

Last Monday, German officials arrested Jaber Albakr, 22, a Syrian refugee suspected of plotting to bomb Berlin’s airport for ISIS.

Germany’s chief prosecutor, Peter Frank, said Albakr “developed a very high explosive for which special expertise was needed, and he made it in a very large quantity.”

“We have to accept that we have hit squads and sleeper cells in Germany,” Bavarian intelligence official Manfred Hauser told the BBC in August. “We have substantial reports that among the refugees there are hit squads.”

Against this blood-soaked backdrop, Clinton would sextuple the Syrian refugees entering America. And, in yet another secret speech exposed by Wikileaks, Clinton told Banco Itaú in May 2013 that “My dream” includes “open borders” across the Western Hemisphere.

All of this proves that U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders was absolutely right when he told NBC in April why Hillary Clinton never should become president: “In terms of her judgment, something is clearly lacking.”
