Re new immigration ban, the Big Disconnect

So do they think we're dolts, or what?

Trump signs an executive order modifying his controversial and court-stalled earlier order banning immigration from seven Muslim-majority Mideast countries. This time, however, Iraq is excluded from that group, because, according to the Trump administration, that country satisfied US government security concerns in a matter of just two or three weeks.

Yet both orders were issued ostensibly because of Trumped-up concerns about *our* government's visa and immigration screening procedures, which already are quite intensive. So, for a good chunk of this year and perhaps indefinitely, while TrumpCo takes its sweet time thinking all of that through, those concerns still apply to the other six countries. And yet Iraq is, just like that, off the hook.

If the Trumpists really think our own security screening procedures are inadequate and will require a lengthy period to improve, how could it matter what new efforts Iraq could muster in a matter of two or three weeks? Hmmm?
