Another Good Program Corrupted

Northwest DC is home to the Armed Forces Retirement Home. Originally the home of a Democrat slave-owner, but I’m redundant, the home became Abraham Lincoln’s summer White House. Lincoln wrote the Emancipation Proclamation there. There are tours, and it’s worth the price of admission. What is interesting is a picture of the original cadre of retired soldiers and sailors. A number of them were not native-born Americans. When one looks through the list of MOH earners, a number of them are not native-born Americans. From Baron von Steuben to today, many of our military service-members weren’t and aren’t citizens.

Beginning in 2009, the Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest (MAVNI) program recruits people from outside of the US. Most go into Signals Intelligence as linguists. The intent and purpose of this program make it a good thing.

And then Obama.

Obama’s policies to not investigate immigrants, which is meant to provide a high level of confidence in the immigrants and visitors suitability for life in the US, meant MAVNI recruited foreign agents into our most sensitive military intelligence functions. The terrorists-in-black-robes seek to continue this policy. Must be nice to not be held accountable for the chaos one sews.

Way to go ace. Another good-for-America program corrupted.

    The article discusses potential issues, and does not name a single person, so far I as can see, who has been problematic. It seems premature to dismiss this program at this point.
