State Dep't must change its ways

Reader comment on item: Why Revoke Tariq Ramadan's U.S. Visa?

Submitted by Bernadette Kim (United States), Aug 27, 2004 at 11:14

Why would the State Dep't encourage a terrorist sympathizer to reapply for a different visa when our DHS followed the National Security rules to the letter? Is it not imperative for the State Dep't to keep our nation safe from terrorists like Ramadan from entering into our nation? Or is it something else? Is the State Dep't unwilling to face the evil doers who want to enter our country with legitimacy and commit crimes against the American people? We have been going in circles trying to keep our nation from being a haven for terrorists yet the State Dep't is going out of way to bring in terrorists, or their apologists. How sad.

I support the DHS diligent screening and it is high time someone in the Executive branch stop the State Dep't from being foolish.
I am getting tired of State's inability to follow the rules that have been established since 9/11 and maybe it is time that we disband the State Department for its follies.

Thank you, Dr. Pipes, for a well - written piece and I pray you can continue to keep the American people informed of our govt's inabilities and stupidities in dealing with the terrorists.
