THOUSANDS of terror suspects MISSING in US

A State Department official admitted Thursday that it has lost track of thousands of foreign nationals within our borders who had their visas revoked — including over security concerns.

This acknowledgement was made at a House Oversight Committee hearing, and sent its chairman, Rep. Jason Chaffetz through the roof.

“You don’t have a clue do you?” the Utah Republican said to Michele Thoren Bond, assistant secretary for the Bureau of Consular Affairs, according to Fox News.

Bond’s statement that the United States has revoked 122,000 visas since 2001, including 9,500 because of the threat of terrorism, prompted Chaffetz to ask of their present whereabouts.

“I don’t know,” she admitted.

The committee wanted to know what the Obama administration is doing to prevent people like Tashfeen Malik, the female member of the husband-wife team of jihadists that killed 14 innocents in San Bernardino, entry into the United States.

Fox News reported:

Tashfeen Malik came to the U.S. on a K-1 fiancee visa in July 2014 and passed multiple background checks and at least two in-person interviews, one in Pakistan and another after she married Syed Farook. FBI Director James Comey has said Malik and Farook communicated privately online about jihad and martyrdom before they married.


Comey said that much of the communication between the two was done through private online messaging. Lawmakers, including Democrats, wanted to know why social media, at least, wasn’t checked on persons seeking entry through our borders.

“If half the employers are doing it in the United States of America, if colleges are doing it for students, why wouldn’t Homeland Security do it?” Rep. Stephen Lynch, D-Mass. asked. “We don’t even look at their public stuff, that’s what kills me.”

Leon Rodriguez, director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, admitted that such checks aren’t done routinely because, in part, foreign alphabets pose a challenge to translators.

Chaffetz addressed the San Bernardino killers in his opening statement Thursday.

“It is unclear how someone who so openly discussed her hatred of our country and our way of life could easily pass three background checks. We need to understand how the breakdown happened with Malik and what we are doing to make sure it doesn’t happen again.”

Committee members weren’t the only ones appalled — so was Fox News host Greta Van Susteren, who had Chaffetz on Thursday night as a guest.
