It’s really funny to see the propagandists crying and wringing their hands over a four month delay in accepting refugees from countries with large radical Islamist population, yet when Obama banned all Iraqis from the United States in 2011 including those working with our military, resulting in the death of at least one of them, the propagandists kept quiet. The same way Code Pink disappeared for 8 years of Obama.
Now, these very same propagandists find it hard to accept that a US president would actually protect Americans rather than bring in unvetted foreign nationals.
As a result of this discovery the Obama administration blocked all Iraqi refugees from entering the US for six months.
There were no protests.
The left said nothing.
As a result of the Kentucky case, the State Department stopped processing Iraq refugees for six months in 2011, federal officials told ABC News – even for many who had heroically helped U.S. forces as interpreters and intelligence assets. One Iraqi who had aided American troops was assassinated before his refugee application could be processed, because of the immigration delays, two U.S. officials said. In 2011, fewer than 10,000 Iraqis were resettled as refugees in the U.S., half the number from the year before, State Department statistics show.
