The travel ban rationalization (aka lie) revealed
Maddow revealed a new report from the Dept. of Homeland Security's Office of Intelligence and Analysis which stated that "most foreign-born, U.S.-based violent extremists are likely radicalized several years after their entry to the United States, limiting the ability of screening and vetting officials to prevent their entry because of national security concerns." In effect, this lays bare the lie that a travel ban would prevent terrorist attacks in the US. Combine that with the fact that people from the countries on the previous ban did not commit terrorist acts in the US and the lies supporting the ban have been destroyed. So why a ban then? Ahh, because they're Muslim?
