Taliban Official Attending Yale

How did the U.S. get attacked on 9/11/2001? Because 19 hijackers were allowed to infiltrate the country to train and plan on and off for years, right under the noses of U.S. agents and immigration officials.

How were these men able to have access to this country so easily? Because the nations own immigration system allowed it and in fact facilitated the entry of these men, making it easy for them to get here. Many of the hijackers gained access to the country under the Student Visa system, which gives Visas away like candy.

Fix the problem by overhauling the immigration system, changing Homeland Security to deal with the terrorist threat, and changing foreign policy to fight terrorism long term (by reshaping Muslim perception of the U.S. and fighting extremism)? Right?

NO! None of that was done.... Instead, The U.S. launched two wars (one large war) under the flawed strategy of fighting terrorism with Conventional Military power...which doesn't work.

The Visa system is still a huge vulnerability for the U.S.

Now over the past couple of weeks, we learn of a high level Taliban member who has been given access to the U.S. and who is now attending Yale University. What is going on America?
