Clapper always a village idiot.
Clapper... that’s the guy who lied to Congress about the treason-level crimes he was committing, yes?
Why is this guy not in a jail cell?
Correction to title... Ex chief spy Clapper.....
The only effective “recruiting tool” for terrorists is Islam.
I say, "Do".
BTW, how's that working out for the citizens in the countries where there's unfettered immigration?
Killing them is the best recruiting tool.
Common knowledge that certain types of “Clap” can destroy the brain....he an Nancy have something in common - only hers is the poison of Botox.
It must be true since they've obviously recruited Clapper.
Which EXACTLY makes the President’s point!!
Either these people are phenomenally stupid, or they think we are.
To them the fact that I have a Miller Lite when I get home from work at night is a “recruiting tool”. The fact that you can see womens’ knees at the mall is a “recruiting tool”.
Apparently they ain’t hard to recruit.
Clapper always was - and still is - a total dumbass.
Every policy they disagree with falls into a single category : “Recruiting tool”. Sorry, they need to be more thoughtful and creative.
You know what was a huge Muslim extremist recruiting tool, James? The Obama foreign policy of the past 8 years. We went from it being relatively contained under Bush to ISIS controlling huge parts of the Middle East at the end of Obama. And you presided over it. You have no credibility to talk about how to eliminate extremist recruiting tools.
He’s confident in existing “vetting” procedures which consist in asking ppl to recite their prepared fake scripts and checking their (possibly fake) names against totally inadequate databases.
If people who embrace islam are easily triggered to radicalization, then only an idiot couldn’t see that islam itself is dangerous.
The lying left calling it a “Muslim ban” and things like that is what they might use as a recruiting tool... not the sensible retooling of our vetting process.
