So much for our vetting process

It appears that the United States in incapable of reliably performing a basic level of functioning when it comes to vetting foreigners who want to come here.  Case in point: When jihadist Tashfeen Malik filled out her K-1 visa application to come to the United States, she listed a fictitious address.  Yet she was given a visa to come here.  And in so doing, we helped her fulfill yet one more step that brought her closer to murdering and maiming Americans in the name of Allah, as she did this past Wednesday.

Shouldn’t we be able to corroborate something as basic as an address on a visa application?  I mean, we are the nation that put a man on the Moon, yet we appear unable or unwilling to make sure all the information on a visa application is accurate.  Not that that is a deal-breaker to protect us from the Tashfeen Maliks of the world.  But in this case, it might have been a red flag.

This entire scenario should also serve as a wake-up call that Muslims living outside America bent on inflicting harm can use this K-1 (fiancé) visa as an easy route into the country.  Quite likely jihadists have already figured this out and are exploiting it via dating web sites.

So Malik flew across our border despite lying on her visa application.  And then her luck continued when a neighbor didn’t report suspicious activity at Farook’s and Malik’s home out of PC fear of profiling.

Where is Jeh Johnson, head of the Department of Homeland Security?  He should be questioned about the ability of his department to perform the most basic of screening, but he has been entirely absent from the media since the shooting in San Bernardino began.

How pathetic have we become as a nation?

Malik finally ran out of luck.  Sadly, not before she took the lives of 14 people.

How about we have a comprehensive national security policy that doesn’t rely on luck or lack thereof for jihadists, not to mention Americans, and stand for truth and American values?
