DNI Clapper on Hill today: ISIS will attack US; refugee flow infiltrated

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 9, 2016

No surprise, but good to hear that wiser heads seem to be prevailing in Washington.

Here is the hot news today, from CNN:

Washington (CNN)Top U.S. intelligence officials said Tuesday that ISIS was likely to attempt direct attacks on the U.S. in the coming year and that the group was infiltrating refugees escaping from Iraq and Syria to move across borders.

ISIS “will probably attempt to conduct additional attacks in Europe, and attempt to direct attacks on the U.S. homeland in 2016,” Lt. Gen. Vincent Stewart, director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, testified on Capitol Hill Tuesday.

“Refugee” men in Hungary. Clapper says ISIS is among them (gee! big surprise!).

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who was also at the Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, estimated that violent extremists were active in about 40 countries and that there currently exist more terrorist safe havens “than at any time in history.”

Clapper warned that ISIS and its eight branches were the No. 1 terrorist threat, and that it was using the refugee exodus from violence in Iraq and Syria to hide among innocent civilians in order to reach other countries.

Clapper said ISIS was “taking advantage of the torrent of migrants to insert operatives into that flow,” adding that they were “pretty skilled at phony passports so they can travel ostensibly as legitimate travelers.”

Syrians trickling in so far!

As we reported the other day, the Syrian flow into the US is going extremely slowly and I’m guessing there are some in Washington who are trying to keep America safe.  At the present rate, there is no way Obama will get 10,000 Syrians in here by the end of this fiscal year on September 30th.  (Unless those UPS flights are for real!).

    Clapper is another one of Obama’s useful idiots…….however, the Defence Intelligence Agency is not!
