Most people are aware of the travesty occurring in the wake of 9/11. This refers, of course, to the farce that was the 9/11 hearings. The finger pointing and blame of agencies that were prevented from sharing information with each other, by law, were endless.

Management, directly responsible for many of the snafus, had unquestionable conflicts of interest, like Jamie Gorelick, counsel for Saudi Prince Mohammed al-Faisal against 9/11 families, yet served as adjudicators on the 9/11 panel. Doris Meissner, Immigration and Naturalization Service commissioner was hired during the Clinton administration (1993-2000). She lied repeatedly to the commission. She’d said immigration inspectors had “always (had) the authority to deny immigration.” This was a bald-faced lie. Inspectors were specifically instructed not to check foreign work and residency records. Under her leadership, INS employees were given their orders; they were to ignore established criteria and grant blanket immigration status. They were to ignore violations against student visas. The saying among those employed by the INS was: “until the INS changes from a service-minded agency to an enforcement-minded agency” nothing would change. If anything, management’s handling of immigration violation has become even more lax. It is crucial to note that they all got a free pass. No one, in the INS or elsewhere, was ever called to account for 9/11. No one even lost their job.

Recollections would not be complete without mentioning Mohammad Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi. Mohammed Atta, a Saudi national (reputedly linked to the Saudi royal family), and Al-Shehhi from the UAE. These were the two jihadists that destroyed the World Trade Center. They bear remembering not only because both terrorists entered the country, unhindered, on student visas but, because six months after committing the worst terrorist act in American history and dying in the process, both had their permanent immigration to the United States approved.

If the negligence of immigration enforcement was terrifying then, the situation has become an order of magnitude worse during ensuing years. Our Dear Leader has upped the ante. Ever the Islamaphile, he has perpetrated such dubious if not treasonous acts as lying about the murder of our ambassador to Libya, arming our Islamic enemies while cutting our own military and denying that any terrorist acts carried out by Muslims on American soil or off of it are anything but isolated incidents or justifiable anger. Domestically, such acts are dubbed “workplace violence” or “the actions of a lone wolf.” This regime ignores dangerous Islamic activity and refuses to consider violent acts committed by Muslims as Islamic terrorism…such as those of the Boston Marathon bombing. Tamerlan Tsarnaev left the U.S. for six months, returning to Russia for terrorist training. The Russians, in fact, warned the U.S. what he was up to. No action was taken here. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has spent ten years in America. That, clearly, absolves him of Islamic terrorist taint.

Useful idiots are mystified as to why radicalization occurs in young men and women born here or that have spent considerable time in America. PC activists never connect the dots. The Tsarnaev brothers did not require strong links with their native Chechnya in order to make war on America. They are Muslims who were radicalized in a local mosque. They learned to despise America in Massachusetts just like many of the people that get “educated” there. The carnage committed against their fellow Americans is being applauded by some. There is no recognition of the fact that most jihadists are not poor but are the educated products of middle and upper class families, some born in the countries in which they commit terrorist acts.

Student immigration from Saudi Arabia has risen 500% since 9/11. Islamic immigration is not limited to Saudi Arabian students. The census bureau states that Middle Eastern immigration is one of “the fastest growing populations in the United States.” They define “Middle Eastern” as peoples from Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Turkey, the Levant, the Arabian Peninsula, and Arab North Africa. Immigration figures, from the Center for Immigration Services, estimated that almost 900,000 immigrants had come to America in 2009 (the last study available). Of these, the INS estimates that approximately 15% were illegal aliens. Those are merely the numbers for Islamic nationals arriving. That does not include the growing numbers of Muslims that are already here. Nor does it include Muslims from the Russian caucuses such as Bosnia. Or Albania. Or the numerous “Stans.”Or Chechnya.

Islamic peoples are flocking to the Great Satan. Why? The growing Islamic population advances the question “Why are they here”?
