Obama’s kind of “surge”

From the Washington Times: “U.S. cuts Syrian refugee screening time in order to handle surge”

“The U.S. is about to start accepting a surge of Syrian refugees — all vetted in less time than originally anticipated by the federal government.

Because of a spike in Middle Eastern refugees needing placement, the Obama administration has decided to rush their vetting process to three months, from the original 18-24 months.

“While the resettlement process usually takes 18 to 24 months, the surge operation will reduce the time to three months,” the Associated Press reported Thursday.”

Great stuff from the Obama administration and the administration goal of relocating 10,000 Syrian refugees in the US is a floor and not a ceiling, according to this report, so the number could increase.  You know they can’t possibly properly vet these refugees with the civil chaos in Syria and no way to check that even the passports are legit.  If there is any way to undermine US national security, the Obama administration will rush to do it.
