What could possibly go wrong? This is so remarkably insane it’s the not-funny laughable.

The State Department has awarded 4,453 permanent resident “Diversity Visa” applications to would-be immigrants from Iran, a state sponsor of terrorism that was recently implicated in a plot to assassinate the Saudi Arabian ambassador to the United States.

The lottery program for Diversity Visas awards prospective immigrants with the chance to obtain a permanent residency visa. The 4,453 prospective Iranian immigrants will still have to pursue their visa applications on their own, according to the State Department’s website.

To be eligible, applicants must have at least a high school education or two years of work within the previous five years at a job that requires at least two years of training.

Iran’s intelligence services have been implicated in a plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the United States by bombing a restaurant or public place in Washington, D.C.

The only man arrested in that plot, so far, is a naturalized Iranian-American citizen named Manssor Arbabsiar.

    I’m flashing back to July 4, 2002, when a man walked up to the El Al airline ticket counter at LAX with guns and a knife and started shooting and stabbing people. Five victims were shot (all Israelis) before the shooter was himself shot; two died. It was another of those “not terrorism” incidents. The murderer, Hesham Mohamed Hadayet, turned out to be an Egyptian. What was he doing in America? From a report:

    Hadayet had been scheduled for deportation in 1997, but was allowed to remain in America when his wife’s application to receive a coveted “green card” for permanent residency was randomly drawn by the State Department from the millions of applicants to the annual Diversity Visa Lottery.

    Indeed, if diversity is the goal, this makes perfect sense, since we’ve got a lower per-capita population of murdering Jew-hating terrorists here than in Egypt.

    As with so many other things that are going on these days, I can only watch goggle-eyed as our political leadership systematically destroys the country. I feel foolish speaking of such things; if our circumstances are not already obvious, then it’s a waste of breath to point them out. If you see a man getting eaten by a tiger, do you say to him, “Hey, you are being eaten by a tiger.”?

    The Proper Headline:

    “Iranians Win 4,453 ‘Diversity Visa’ Applications to Immigrate to U.S., courtesy of the Department of State, led by Hillary Rodham Clinton, the former candidate for President of the United States for the Democrat Party in 2008.”

    And whose job was given to her as a consolation prize. She’s turned out to be a complete, utter and total failure in the position. Zero accomplishments on behalf of the U.S. Unless you think paying the prisoners a salary while in Israel jails an accomplishment? Of all the Cabinet members in this Fraudulent Administration, she been the biggest disappointment.

    She’s a tragic figure, in my opinion.
