A State Department spokesman admitted to ISIS agents posing as refugees on Fox & Friends.
None of us are surprised by the news of ISIS agents posing as refugees seeking asylum in the United States. The only thing surprising is that someone from the State Department admitted it. Here’s the video from Fox & Friends’ Twitter account:

Senior Editor Pete Kasperowicz at the Washington Examiner writes,
State Department spokesman John Kirby acknowledged Wednesday that Islamic State terrorists are trying to mingle with refugee populations overseas in the hopes of making it to the U.S. posing as a refugee.
“I wouldn’t debate the fact that there’s the potential for ISIS terrorists to try to insert themselves, and we see that in some of the refugee camps in Jordan and in Turkey, where they try to insert themselves into the population,” Kirby said on “Fox and Friends.”
“The vetting process, while not perfect, is a very, very stringent, and it can take almost up to two years for a single refugee to make it into the country,” he said.
Right. This message is brought to you by the same people who granted about 850 immigrants citizenship who were scheduled for deportation.
Oops. CNN has reported that the 800 figure was less than half the known number of immigrants accidentally granted citizenship.
The number of individuals who were supposed to have been deported but were instead granted citizenship is far higher than was initially reported by media covering the Department of Homeland Security Inspector General’s office report on the matter.
On Monday, the Inspector General reported that 858 individuals from “special interest countries” — meaning countries that are considered to be “of concern to the national security” of the US — were supposed to have been deported but were instead granted US citizenship.
But the truth is the report is even worse than reported, with more than 1,800 individuals naturalized who should have been deported from the country.
But we’re supposed to trust these clowns to weed out ISIS agents posing as refugees?
