    Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy grilled former Pentagon spokesman John Kirby during a regular briefing, asking whether President Joe Biden's administration was prepared to label anti-Semitic activists as "domestic terrorists."

    "The people in this country making violent, anti-Semitic threats, are they domestic terrorists?" Doocy asked.

    Kirby, who is currently serving as strategic communications director for the National Security Council, suggested that designation should be left up to law enforcement: "I don't know that we're classifying people as domestic terrorists for that. I mean, I - that's really a question better left to law enforcement."

    Doocy continued to press, asking Kirby whether the porous state of the southern border had raised concerns that a terrorist might enter the country that way - or could already have crossed the border.

    "Peter, we are always concerned about the potential presence on U.S. soil of terrorists, coming from overseas. ... We're always worried," Kirby replied.

    "But there was this bulletin last week - the CBP in San Diego, said militants associated with the Israel-Hamas war may be potentially encountered at the southwestern border," Doocy pointed out. "Is there any heartburn around here? 600,000 known got-aways just in the last fiscal year. Is there any heartburn about leaving the border in such a condition that one of those 600,000 could be a terrorist?"

    "We are constantly monitoring as best we can all ports of entry ... for the potential arrival of anybody who might wish us harm. And one of the things that the president asked for in this supplemental was additional funding for border security, for, like, 1,500 more border patrol agents and better technology," Kirby said. "If the general gist of your question [is] are we taking the potential threat seriously, of course we are."

    In addition to the added concern that people involved in the Israel-Hamas war could potentially cross the southern border undetected, a number of individuals who are on the terror watch list have already done so.

26 days after the October 7th Terror attacks on Israel, where over 1400 Jewish men, women and children were gruesomely murdered, and hundreds more made hostage: Should the Biden /Harris administration finally state that the administration's primary Middle East negotiating partner, Iran, is behind the funding and strategy of the aggressors, the Hamas Terrorists, or continue to take the more moderate position of "Don't," which is clearly not working?
  Yes, name Iran as the funding /strategy culprit, and begin to enforce the President Trump era sanctions to END Iran's ability to prosecute this war against Israel and the United States.
  No, Iran is a valuable partner in the motives of the Biden / Harris administration, and must not be named as the culprit and our enemy.
  I have larger concerns just to survive in this economy.
