Syrian Refugee Update

This story changes faster than I can comment on it.  As a corollary to my earlier post on Syrian refugees, it would appear that President Obama is actually planning to allow 10,000 refugees form Syria this year, and eventually the government will allow up to 100,000 refugees from the entire world in 2017.  The confusion over these numbers stems from the sources of the 100,000-Syrians figure, which turn out to be . . . Republican presidential candidates Carly Fiorina, Donald Trump, and Ben Carson.
This Washington Post story clarifying the issue and calling out the three GOP clown stars - which includes the presidential tweet below - explains it.  And I hope that's the last I have to say about it for now.
