Below we have the post describing how the Obama Administration canceled security programs profiling radical Muslims that might have prevented the San Bernadino attack. We also have the fact that the Obama Administration has purged all references to radical Islam in FBI training and canceled CIA events where homegrown radicalism was the topic.
It's hard to imagine anything more stupid and reckless than that but then there is this. This comes from the New York Times, not Fox News or Rush Limbaugh so even our lefty friends will have to stand up and take notice:
U.S. Visa Process Missed San Bernardino Wife’s Zealotry on Social MediaA debate about whether it is "appropriate" to search social media to see if the subject has posted radical views? On what planet should there even be a discussion about that? But then, this is the Obama Administration which bends over backwards to appease radical Muslims at the expense of the safety of American citizens.

WASHINGTON — Tashfeen Malik, who with her husband carried out the massacre in San Bernardino, Calif., passed three background checks by American immigration officials as she moved to the United States from Pakistan. None uncovered what Ms. Malik had made little effort to hide — that she talked openly on social media about her views on violent jihad.
She said she supported it. And she said she wanted to be a part of it.
American law enforcement officials said they recently discovered those old — and previously unreported — postings as they pieced together the lives of Ms. Malik and her husband, Syed Rizwan Farook, trying to understand how they pulled off the deadliest terrorist attack on American soil since Sept. 11, 2001.
Had the authorities found the posts years ago, they might have kept her out of the country. But immigration officials do not routinely review social media as part of their background checks, and there is a debate inside the Department of Homeland Security over whether it is even appropriate to do so.
The Times story continues:
Ms. Malik also had two in-person interviews, federal officials said, the first by a consular officer in Pakistan, and the second by an immigration officer in the United States when she applied for her green card.Hundreds of security investigators are now scouring the world for information about this terrorist couple. What a shame at least one of them couldn't have devoted 30 seconds to click on a link to the terrorists Facebook page before the attack! But no, that would have been racial profiling and Obama says we mustn't. Any perceived discrimination against Muslims, which to Obama could mean anything, is what he calls "a betrayal of our values." Tell that to the families of the 14 people killed in San Bernadino. I'm sure they will feel better knowing Obama's sense of American values is protected!
All those reviews came back clear, and the F.B.I. has said it had no incriminating information about Ms. Malik or Mr. Farook in its databases. The State Department and the Department of Homeland Security have said they followed all policies and procedures. The departments declined to provide any documentation or specifics about the process, saying they cannot discuss the case because of the continuing investigation.
Meanwhile, a debate is underway at United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, the agency that approves visas and green cards, over whether officers conducting interviews should be allowed to routinely use material gathered from social media for interviews where they assess whether foreigners are credible or pose any security risk. With that issue unresolved, the agency has not regularly been using social media references, federal officials said.
UPDATE: ISIS images found on the phones of hundreds of Syrian refugees! Are these the "widows and orphans" Obama keeps talking about? And "refugees" coming to the U.S. need have no fear that Obama's Homeland Security will look at your phone. That would be wrong! They will only look at your phone AFTER you commit mass murder!
