Between this move by post-America and Angela Merkel's open arms over in Germany, Western civilization is setting itself up for catastrophic possibilities. (Not unlike the way it is doing so by signing a deal with Iran.)John Kerry is in on the conversation of course, and is already tossing out numbers which include bumping the maximum of 75K refugees up to 100K “or more” in the coming months.If you can’t already see the potential problems arising from this decision, perhaps James Clapper can clear it up for you.The U.S. relies on U.N. lists of refugees who are deemed safe candidates for resettlement, but the screening process can take between 18 and 24 months and strains the resources of the Department of Homeland Security and Customs and Immigration Services.Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said Wednesday that the current migration is a “disaster of biblical proportions” that poses an opportunity for terrorist groups such as ISIS to “infiltrate operatives among these refugees.”“What we’re trying to do is weed out people who are liars, who are criminals or would-be terrorists,” a senior State Department official said.As we mark the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, can you think of one place on the entire planet which currently presents more of a threat of exporting terrorist moles to our shores than Syria? (Okay… there’s probably an argument to be made for Yemen or Sudan, but Syria is right up near the top of the list.) It takes us up to two years to vet anyone coming from these areas as we hope that they aren’t one of the liars, criminals and would-be terroristsas Clapper put it. Processing a few hundred of them is bogging down our immigration resources like trying to download the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy over a dial-up line. And now we’re going to bring in more than then thousand?

An explanation of how jihadists will be identified and weeded out is in order, don't you think?
The Most Equal Comrade's edict welcoming 10,000 Syrian refugees into post-America poses obvious logistic problems - where do you put that many people? - but more specifically, a national-security problem as well:
