US denies visa to nun set to testify about ISIS atrocities

US denies visa to nun set to testify about ISIS atrocities | Global politics | Scoop.it
Conservative commentators are up in arms over the State Department’s decision to deny a visa to a Catholic nun who was part of an Iraqi delegation supposed to testify before Congress about Islamic State (ISIS) atrocities.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

This is utterly unheard of. Why should nuns be so feared by the US and other "democrats". I still remember the vicious attacks another nun, a displaced Palestinian in Syria, was the object of for claiming that the chemical attack blamed on President Assad was instead a false flag organized by the US-supported Islamist gangs.

This is a topic we talk about
that practically no one else
does.

Police and police agents
posing as "rioters" and
provoking and staging
riots.

It happens all the time. I can
understand the lamestream
media missing this, but even
good investigative reporters
miss this one.
