This is in keeping with the way the Obama administration works with ISIS, you know deny, deny, & deny some more. I am not the least bit surprised by this information whatsoever. Wondering how Hillary will think about her little granddaughter in a burka? Oh yea, she probably believes that will NEVER happen because she is among the ruling class elite.
Counter Jihad: Last week we saw CIA head John Brennan testify that ISIS has “a large cadre” of foreign fighters to serve in attacking the West, and also that ISIS was probably using refugee flows as a means of vectoring its agents into the West. Now a former high-level intelligence officer claims that he has a source that gives a more specific figure. At least fifteen percent of refugees are ISIS, according to LTC(R) Anthony Shaffer of the London Center for Policy Research. The claim came in an interview Shaffer gave to a radio show hosted by Larry O’Connor and Brian Wilson on WMAL.
“I got the percentage from one of my sources. We’re talking about, right now, in the refugee stream, between 15-17% of individuals coming through the refugee stream are ISIS.”
The figure is shockingly high, which means we should ask how plausible it is. On the one hand, Shaffer is the kind of person who would plausibly have sources highly placed in the government, particularly in the intelligence communities who would be tapped to investigate this very question. Shaffer’s background includes CIA training, extensive high level human intelligence operations that were classified at the highest levels, and then membership in the Defense Intelligence Agency’s counter-Qaeda efforts both before and after 9/11. He served in Afghanistan on active duty, and had two tours of duty searching out al Qaeda’s top leadership in Asia. It is certainly plausible that he has the right kind of contacts to obtain access to this information. More
“I got the percentage from one of my sources. We’re talking about, right now, in the refugee stream, between 15-17% of individuals coming through the refugee stream are ISIS. Add to that the layer of the fact that we can’t really stream these folks.”
