Speaking in measured cadences the President explained reassuringly, over and over, how his visa screening program is sure to catch terrorists disguised as Syrian refugees – then the New York Times reported Tashfeen Malik slipped past Obama’s screeners after talking about jihad on social media.

Then another newspaper reported the head of the Department of Homeland Security banned using social media in visa background checks a year ago – because “he feared a civil liberties backlash” and “bad public relations.”
