Israel on a Terror Watch List Was a Mistake, Says ICE

A few days ago, I reported at the end of a post on the decline of Jewish support for Obama here in the US, that Israel was recently included on a list of 36 countries whose citizens are to be subject to a 'third-agency check', a special, additional check by Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE).  The same spokesman for ICE that originally defended the inclusion of Israel on the list, now has issued a retraction, saying that it was a mistake:

The addition of Israel in the OIG’s [Office of the Inspector General] list of ICE's 'Third-Agency Checks' (TAC) was based on inaccurate information provided to the OIG during the course of its audit.
The translation is "You may now resume your regularly-scheduled contributions to the DNC."

And North Korea, removed from the list when Israel was included?  What about them?

It seems that the administration is still channeling Emily Litella.

Comments are welcome and discussion is open and encouraged. I expect that there will be some occasional disagreement (heaven knows why) or welcome clarification and embellishment, and such are freely solicited.

Consider that all such comments are in the public domain and are expected to be polite, even while contentious. I will delete comments which are ad hominem, as well as those needlessly profane beyond the realm of sputtering incredulity in reaction to some inanity, unless attributed to a quote.

Links to other sources are fine so long as they further the argument or expand on the discussion. All such comments and links are the responsibility of the commenter, and the mere presence herein does not necessarily constitute my agreement.

I will also delete all comments that link to a commercial site.
