The NATO supreme Commander told Washington lawmakers this week that terrorists and criminals are now flowing into Europe every day, and suggested that many will be making their way to the United States.
Air Force Gen. Philip Breedlove said that ISIS has now begun to seriously infiltrate the thousands of refugees entering Europe. He said that evidence suggests that terrorists, foreign fighters and dangerous criminals are also becoming part of the “daily flow” into Western Europe.

Despite ISIS’s well known plans to bring terror to western society via these refugees, President Obama has now pledged to admit at least 10,000 Syrian refugees into the United States this year. Other reports suggest that number can rise nearly ten-fold. So far, approximately 1000 have already arrived. Of those, less than one percent are “persecuted Christians”, and 98 percent are Sunni Muslims. The vast majority of them are young, uneducated males who only speak their native Arabic language.
Breedlove claimed that both the Assad regime in Syria and Russia’s President Putin are actively terrorizing peaceful Syrian communities, forcing the citizens to flee and become refugees. Assad’s fores are using “barrel bombs”, cheap, indiscriminate explosives. Breedlove said “Barrel bombs are designed to terrorize, get people out of their homes, and get them on the road, and make them someone else’s problem.” These refugees are now heading to Europe, creating the largest humanitarian crisis since World War 2.
The NATO General used the term “weaponization of immigration” to describe the Assad / Putin strategy. As tens of thousands of people continue to descend upon Europe, ISIS is taking the opportunity to insert terrorists into the mass migration, and preparing to wreak havoc in Western Europe and the United States.

Nearly 150,000 migrants have already traveled across the Mediterranean Sea and arrived in Greece during the first two months of 2016 alone. And the numbers are growing each week. Would-be terrorists can easily blend into the crowd of migrants.
In typical liberal fashion, Obama is indiscriminately opening America’s doors to these Syrian migrants. He knows that many of them may be terrorists. But then, Obama only has ten months left in office. Once the terrorism begins, it will likely be someone else’s problem.
