Greece discovers it's impossible to identify ISIS agents among 'refugees'

The FBI and other members of our intelligence community have stated, clearly and unequivocally, that we can’t vet “Syrian refugees” and that there is every reason to believe terrorists would be among them.

Despite these excruciatingly clear, simple, and direct warnings, the left ignores them because it doesn’t fit the story they’ve concocted in their heads. And we all know that stories, beliefs, and ideas plucked out of thin air that progressives love to embrace, trumps the truth. So I’m not expecting this bit of news to sway many, or any, of them. But one must try, no?

As if to bring the warnings of our intelligence community to life, the AFP reports:

As the hunt for jihadists widens after last week's Paris attacks, authorities in Greece warn it was virtually impossible to pick out dangerous extremists among arriving migrants, without prior intelligence.

"If they are not already registered in the database, it's nearly impossible," says Dimitris Amountzias, police captain in charge of Moria, Greece's main registration camp on the island of Lesbos.

At the camp, dozens of migrants and refugees queue to give their fingerprints, have a photo taken and be quizzed by agents from European border agency Frontex.

It's a seemingly detailed security check, but jihadists have already proven they can bypass it with ease.

The suspected architect of the Paris attacks that killed 130 people, 28-year-old Abdelhamid Abaaoud, escaped from Europe to Syria and returned without being detected.

French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve this week suggested Abaaoud, who was killed in a police raid in Paris on Wednesday, had passed through Greece.

Cliff Notes: As the FBI has stated repeatedly, with no database to check against, the vetting process is moot. Useless. As predicted, jihadists slip through as a faux vetting bureaucracy that might make idiots feel safe serves no actual national security function. So as the West queries and fingerprints, Islamic terrorists move freely between Europe and Syria and back again.

A gang of suspected forgers, most of them Pakistanis, were arrested on Lesbos on Wednesday.

"We don't really know who is coming through," admits another police officer, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Even if Syrians generally carry passports it's not always possible to match the document to its bearer, and people of other nationalities "are registered on the basis of who they claim to be," the officer adds.

Cliff Notes: There are layers of evil at work overwhelming an inadequate system. Chaos reigns as Western officials scramble like idiots, playing catch up (and poorly) in a brutal war they refuse to fully acknowledge, reacting after-the-fact, putting citizens in the path of knives, bullets, and bombs. Cliff Notes of the Cliff Notes: We don’t know who these people are!

Syrians with falsified Greek passports have even ended up in South America.

Five Syrian men were caught in Honduras this week, while a woman was arrested in Costa Rica with a suspicious Greek passport.

Ideally, Europe should coordinate its crime suspect database, says Amontzias, because without prior knowledge, officials spend time chasing down false leads.

France has asked the European Union to ensure better information-sharing among intelligence agencies.

"Contrary to what is thought, it is quite easy to enter and exit the European Union without being caught," says French criminologist Christophe Naudin.

Cliff Notes: We are facing an impossibly complex web of deception, as terrorists move around the globe, traveling not just to places like Europe, but through places like Europe. And we all know what the final, and ultimate, destination is.

It’s called the United States of America.
