Missouri Senator Roy Blunt warned against joining any Mideast military alliance led by Russia.
“What you don’t want is an alliance led by Russian. I think an alliance including Russia: highly unlikely,” Blunt said in Kansas City Tuesday.
Blunt, a member of the US senate intelligence committee says top American intelligence officials are saying the same thing to committee members in the private and public meetings.
“We’ve never had more threats, coming from more different directions at any time,” he said.
Blunt against blasted the Obama administration’s handling of the Syrian refugee crisis.
His political website tweeted out a call for Americans to sign a petition urging the Senate to tighten the regulation on Syrian refugees coming to the US.
Blunt says the claim that refugee are being checked out for 18 months to two years before coming into the country is not accurate.
“Nobody believes that 4 million Syrians, 2 years ago before the disruptions started, had lined up and said, we want to start the 2 year vetting process,” Blunt said.
