If only the Obama admin could fulfill FOIA requests half as fast as they can vet 10,000 refugees

Call me crazy, but I get a little skeptical when I see the words “federal government” and “ahead of schedule” in the same sentence (they go together like “Michael Moore” and “wins Boston Marathon”). Case-in-point: The same Obama administration that said it would take decades to fulfill FOIA requests for emails from Hillary’s aides can somehow vet 10,000 people lightning fast:

The White House will reach its goal, articulated a year ago, of taking in 10,000 Syrian refugees into the U.S. on Monday afternoon.

A plane carrying the refugees has departed Jordan and will soon land in the U.S., CBS News’ Margaret Brennan reports.

“Today, I am pleased to announce that we will meet this goal more than a month ahead of schedule. Our 10,000th Syrian refugee will arrive this afternoon,” National Security Adviser Susan Rice said in a statement.

Between last October and the end of this September, the U.S. is expected to admit a total of at least 85,000 refugees, Rice said, including from countries like Burma, Democratic Republic of the Congo, El Salvador, Iraq, Somalia, Ukraine, among many others.
[…]
An overwhelmingly majority of the refugees, 80 percent, who have already resettled in the U.S. are women and children under the age of 18, according to the State Department. Data also shows that 96 percent of the refugees are Muslim.

U.S. officials say that the refugees have gone through extensive vetting, which not only involved numerous interviews but also intelligence-driven vetting and reviews of their social media accounts. The average review took more than a year and a half to complete. The names of the refugees were run through Pentagon, State Department, FBI and other agency databases, Brennan reports.

Team Obama assured the American public that there’s no threat to the public because each refugee has been carefully vetted. Then again, these are the same people who said “if you like your plan you can keep it” and blamed Benghazi on a YouTube video.

Here’s a live look-in at the Obama administration’s fast-but-strict screening of refugees entering the country:
