Hypocrites at best, notice that they performing this action AFTER most of the fighting in Syria has stopped. They should have devoted time and resources, prior, and during. Do not forget that the U.S. itself provided aid to the rebels, I’m not for or against it. I’m against our government BS’ing it’s citizens.

In Syria there are “rebels”, who are freedom fighters trying to dislodge the Assad family dynastic dictatorship, who between father and son have been responsible for the deaths of more than 200,000 Syrian men, women and children; even using chemical weapons against that country’s citizens.

And there are “rebels”, who are extremist Al-Qaeda affiliates trying to bring about a 12th century radical Islamic state in Syria, and who publicly behead their prisoners of war, and publicly flog and stone-to-death women and girls.

The USA is CAREFULLY channeling humanitarian and small-arms support to the former “freedom fighting” rebels, while trying very hard to prevent any of that support from ending up in the wrong hands and giving aid and comfort to the radical Islamic extremists.

The US Government is right to be VERY concerned that Americans are being radicalized by association with the Al-Qaeda affiliated radical Islamic extremists in Syria.
And if you will take a moment to think about it, I don’t think even you want those people let loose in American communities … your community … when they return from Syria to potentially continue “their jihadist mission” on American soil.

We have more room in our Guantanamo facility for interrogating these suspects for years or decades. I’ve written often about those rebels in Syria with uncertain goals, supported by the Obama regime’s rosy propaganda about democracy and freedom when the Middle East has had little of it in the 55 centuries of its recorded history. They did not have the 150 years of US colonial history in which colonial assemblies contested rules of royal governors and developed ideas of men like George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and James Monroe. We can’t GIVE other countries OUR history; they must create and live their own histories. Those who go to fight in the Middle East for various causes with no guidance to protect them from extremism will need a “decontamination” process before they are safe to release into the US.

The Islamists are not “Americans” but rather Muslims who came to the United States and do not reconize American, Christian value or secular oaths as valid. They are using our refugee process to come to America for the purpose of colonization and future conquest. That’s the facts. They should be deported and denied entrance back into the USA if fighting an Islamic war for the conceptual nation of Islam – as their citizenship is called “brotherhood”.
