The Obama administration is considering resettling thousands of refugees who left Syria during the country's ongoing civil war to multiple towns and cities across the United States, the L.A. Times reports.
Anytime it's an unnamed source you have to be reticent of the viability of the report. That source could be anyone, with who knows what agenda. With that being said, already taking into consideration funding and arming Al-Qaeda cells, the possibility of settling those cells in the country shouldn't even be on the table. You're just asking for a large attack with that policy.
The State Department is "ready to consider the idea," an official from the department said, if the administration receives a formal request from the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Refugees, which is the usual procedure.

How long will it take before we have issues similar to the UK (Like that stabbing incident involving a radical islamist)

Obama's Snooping Excludes Mosques, Missed Boston Bombers
Homeland Insecurity: The White House assures that tracking our every phone call and keystroke is to stop terrorists, and yet it won't snoop in mosques, where the terrorists are.
That's right, the government's sweeping surveillance of our most private communications excludes the jihad factories where homegrown terrorists are radicalized.

I'm of the same mind. Barring knowledge of an imminent large scale event that could affect the whole world, just let 'em work it out themselves.

Easy now...this is only being considered, and it is not like it will happen in a month much less a year. Any decision to bring in refugees would be supported by the U.N. and each of the refugees would be watched extremely close. People act as if we do not have terrorists here now. Getting involved in Syria is a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation. If we leave them to fend for themselves, up against WMD's, they die and the Muslim world catches on fire. If we put troops on the ground, war will break out in the Middle East and they die. If we go in weak, like Vietnam, we win, but it is Iraq/Afghanistan all over again. So, at least this is a fresh line of thinking that is humanitarian. I do not think it is wise to just let the flood gates open, but apparently BO thinks his new spy network can keep them in check. Remember, it was built to monitor terrorists here in the United States.
All that being said, no way this happens with a magic wave of the wand, and it would only happen if Assad's regime cannot be ousted without provoking Iran into a war. JMO.
