a reply to: Swills
Well Dear Swills,
This thread perhaps sounds ironic, but today there is consensus among all the analysts that agree the tragedy of Paris had pretty obviously two
elements that are mutually complementary:
a terrible smart and well premeditated terrorist strategy to lie, in filter and attack, and its counterpart: an element of visible incompetence of
the French public administration that didn't use the minimal required caution to see that refugees can be also spies or double agents and so apply a
better tied screening.
It might be unfair to blame only the French for this terrible mistake, we here in America has seen the same lack of efficiency in the immigration
system costing terribly lives of many innocent people:
In October of 1959 the Eisenhower administration readmitted to the country Lee H. Oswald, a man that when he was just 17, he had resided at 22
different locations and attended 12 different schools. He renounced to the American citizenship in Moscow about a year before, then he married the
daughter of a KGB agent, few months after he was interned in a Psychiatric Russian hospital for a supposed attempt of suicide. The rest of his life
it is very well known and what it represented for the nation.
Another classic example: It has been extensively reported by the media along years that Osama Bin Laden was even trained by CIA, in between 1979 and
1980, to fight against the Soviet forces in Afghanistan, they thought they were using him well, but the sad reality is that it was in the other way
This mistake was nor the only one committed by the Carter Administration, neither the worst: To retire the political support to Sha Muhammed
Reza-Pahlevi in the middle of fundamentalist Persian Islamic revolution proved to be in the long run fatal to cut the political neck of a President
that was not reelected thanks to the crisis of hostages in Iran caused by a regime that arrived to power in such turmoil.
The George W Bush administration admitted Tsarnaev brothers in 2002, after the attack of the world trade center in NYC, allowing them to enter to
America also as refugees , against all the reports of the Russian intelligentsia that warned the CIA , The FBI and homeland and security about the
class of criminals America was admitting in its territory.
Finally many years after those painful experiences, another democratic administration, this time Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama enthusiastically
embraced the revolutions in North Africa few years ago, even going against reliable and loyal allies of decades, like President Hosni Mubbarak of
Egypt, just to discover that it was not democracy what it was behind them, but ISIS.
It is intelligent to learn from History and to don't repeat the same mistakes systematically, the contrary is something that I prefer even to don't
mention by its name.
