    Addtess the points made so we can debate. More than one person was quoted directly plus the anonymous people.

    Sweet. Didn't realize you knew more about this than the former director of the CIA.

    Talk about a cop out here...

    Brennan is a political hack and an Obama lacky. He made so many political moves not in the best interest of this country I can't take him seriously anymore.

    I read that Brennan actually admitted to being sympathetic to the Communist party in his younger days...cannot remember the source though or I would post it...so glad he is out the door...

    Allies alienated

    Made life harder for hidden US partners -heads of a mosque in US suburb or the head of Middle East intelligence service

    Allies are rattled by inauguration comments by POTUS

    Regardless of true intent bill is read as "anti-Muslim"

    Former CIA director says the order "inarguably has made us less us safe."

    Feeds Islamic militant narrative and makes it harder for allies

    Analysts say much of the damage may happen in US

    Counterterrorism officials believe the integration of Muslims into the US gives the US a security advantage over countries in Europe who tend to isolate Muslims.

    Sense of belonging by US Muslims may start to "fray"

    New measures could effect allies as far as intelligence sharing with US

    President Trump's "joke" about going back to Iraq to get more oil confirms widely held suspicions amongst some Iraqis that the US motivation is oil and to destroy Islam.


    Officials worry that U.S counterterrorism defenses will be weakened by Trump actions - The Washington Post
    Clyde, you are posting absolute junk and I don't have to go any further than the title, which you misquoted, and the publication the article came from.

    "Officials worry that U.S counterterrorism defenses will be weakened by Trump actions"

    The country did not elect Neville Chamberlain.

    The ol' " take exception with wording and maybe I can avoid discussing the real points made" defense.

    Tried and true.

    So that @Pioneer.Pride can participate:

    “We’ve got good people who will work hard at it, but there is no question that this has already created an irretrievable cost,” Hayden said. The refu­gee order “inarguably has made us less safe.

    Not worried that it "might." HAS MADE US LESS SAFE.

    I wonder if they read the EO before they made interpretations and decisions on the impact? The media reality is all spin.

    I have listened to people on the radio who feel just the opposite...that it improves our security..which was its intent.

    One of our risks is that historically, people came to the US and were highly motivated to integrate into our culture and our language. I am concerned that we are pushing to be so "diverse sensitive" that we are removing this motivation, which will have the unintended result of barriers of language and culture growing within our borders. Who doesn't believe our immigration situation needs to be reviewed and revised?
