Donald Trump has been called racist and xenophobic for numerous reasons. One large reason was for his harsh stance on refugee immigration. He advocates for a tougher vetting process in allowing refugees from war torn countries like Syria to come in. Turns out he is right! The Director of the CIA has even confirmed it.
Fox News reported,
“CIA Director John Brennan, in a chilling statement on the Islamic States growing influence, told lawmakers Thursday that U.S. led efforts to strike at the terror group have not hampered it’s “terrorism capability and global reach.” A message that stands in stark contrast to President Obama’s more upbeat assessment earlier this week.
Brennan, testifying in a rare open hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee, said ISIS will likely intensify terrorist attacks around the world even as its core fighters come under pressure in Iraq and Syria, including by deploying operatives for further attacks on the West.
“The group is probably exploring a variety of means for infiltrating operatives into the West, including in refugee flows, smuggle routes, and legitimate modes of travel,” Brennan said.
The testimony offered unnerving context to Obama’s comments on Tuesday. The president said the anti ISIS campaign “is firing on all cylinders” and the group is “under more pressure than ever before” while conceding their gaining traction elsewhere.
Brennan echoed the president in detailing the groups territorial losses in Iraq and Syria. He said they’re struggling to replenish fighters and getting squeezed financially. However, he said ISIS is resilient and likely will adapt, and warned coalition gains in Iraq and Syria are not blunting its capacity to carry out deadly operations abroad.”

It it is not at all surprising that President Obama has been selling us a bag of goods that really isn’t worth much. Lying is second nature to the man who would rather be golfing in Massachusetts then spending time in Louisiana with victims of the flood.
