Vetting of the “Syrian” Refugees… Not So Good

Iraqi insurgent fighter allegedly lied about identity, got through ‘extreme’ vettingFox News

Federal lawmakers are investigating how a former Iraqi insurgent fighter was able to lie about his identity and still get through America’s ‘extreme’ vetting process.


The suspect is an Iraqi man who had entered the U.S. under a false name. His real name was not released.


At some point, the Iraqi entered the U.S. through the refugee program. His activities in the U.S. triggered an investigation by JTTF members, who planned to charge him with visa fraud while they investigated possible further charges.

Sources say the case demonstrates the challenge of vetting people with little documented history in countries where there’s no paper trail.


U.S. officials said earlier this week that nearly a third of the FBI’S 1,000 ongoing domestic terrorism investigations involve those admitted to the U.S. as refugees.

Give you the warm fuzzies, doesn’t it? Is this really surprising?
