James Clapper: Islamic State could infiltrate U.S., West through migrants fleeing from Syria

America’s top spy said Wednesday that U.S. intelligence officials have a “huge concern” about Islamic State’s ability to infiltrate waves of Syrian war refugees flowing into Europe and potentially the United States as pressure mounts on Western nations to take in a growing number of people fleeing the conflict in the heart of the Middle East.

“As they descend on Europe, one of the obvious issues that we worry about, and in turn as we bring refugees into this country, is exactly what’s their background?” Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper said. “We don’t obviously put it past the likes of ISIL to infiltrate operatives among these refugees.”

“That is a huge concern of ours,” Mr. Clapper said during a rare and unusually informal public appearance at an annual U.S. intelligence community conference that kicked off Wednesday morning in Washington.

This is not possible. Obama has said time and time again, "We are not at war with Islam". Yea, like the fish jumped clean over the boat.

When are we going to STOP Obama and take him away in cuffs?? It's quite obvious what he is and what he believes in. If he had just helped them over there they wouldn't be coming here. But then again that was his plan all along.

Idiots abound. Well, at least he brought what we all knew to the front! Maybe media will pick up on it!
