FBI Director Admits we Can’t Vet All Syrian Refugees for Terrorism Ties


So, this is a terrifying development. During congressional hearings on the Syrian refugees, FBI Director Jim Comey admitted that there was just no way for our government to vet all of the refugees who would be moving into our nation. The sad fact is that we may well be opening our doors wide for the very terrorists we are fighting in the Middle East.

Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) wondered how the FBI would keep American safe from the possibility that terrorists might use the refugee crisis to gain entrance into the U.S.

“We can only query against that which we have collected. And so if someone has never made a ripple in the pond in Syria in a way that would get their identity or their interest reflected in our database, we can query our database until the cows come home, but there will be nothing show up because we have no record of them,” Director Comey replied.

Thompson then mentioned that “a lot of us are concerned about whether you have enough information available to you to do an accurate vetting.”
