Obama is Suddenly a Big Fan of Border Security FOR TURKEY
Obama has never seemed too interested in border security for the United States. In fact, lately he’s been lecturing Americans about how we need to accept thousands of Syrian refugees.
That’s what makes this story so strange.
The Washington Times reports:
In extreme act of hypocrisy, Obama demands Turkey seal its border from terrorists
The Turkish southern border with Syria has been a porous sieve for ISIS terrorists to pass undeterred to and from Syria to fight and then return for medical treatment. Russia has accused Turkey of turning a blind eye to oil shipments from ISIS-controlled territory in Syria, which allows the Islamic State to fund its caliphate and terror activities.
However, in an extreme act of hypocrisy, the Obama administration has demanded Turkey spend whatever is necessary in military deployment of troops to seal the border and prevent terrorists and foreign fighters from transiting the area.
“The game has changed. Enough is enough. The border needs to be sealed,” a senior official in President Barack Obama’s administration told The Wall Street Journal, describing the tough message that Washington has sent to the Turkish government. “This is an international threat, and it’s coming out of Syria and it’s coming through Turkish territory.”
Of course, this is the same Obama administration that has refused to seal the U.S. southern border with Mexico, where it is estimated that thousands of illegal immigrants, most likely infused with terrorist infiltrators, cross into America almost at will.
Wouldn’t it be nice if we had a president who cared about America’s borders?
