An intelligence report by the Department of Homeland Security contradicts the White House’s assertion that immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries pose a particular risk of being terrorists and should be blocked from entering the U.S.

The report is the latest volley in a struggle between intelligence officials and the Trump administration that has rippled across several agencies. Some officials have critiqued administration policies, while the president and senior members of his staff have accused officials of leaking information to undermine his administration and the legitimacy of his election.

The report, reviewed by The Wall Street Journal, came from Homeland Security’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis. It said that its staff “assesses that country of citizenship is unlikely to be a reliable indicator of potential terrorist activity.” The White House on Friday dismissed it as politically motivated and poorly researched.

I was listening to CNN today on the radio while driving and they said that the WH has directed someone, can't remember if it's DOJ, or someone else, to come up with research to support the ban. So I suppose they will make their own alternate facts to justify what they want to do rather than listen to the subject matter experts' findings. What can you expect from an administration who denies science and just goes with feelings? SAD!

I just read the first 4 words of the thread title and left it at that :hihi:

There is simply no level of incompetence so low that this regime can't find it.

What a Trumpster fire.
