Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., speaks during the Values Voter Summit, held by the Family Research Council Action, on Saturday, Sept. 26, 2015, in Washington. Graham, a hawk on many national security matters, said he believed vetting systems were crucial but rarely perfect. “The risk of doing nothing is greater than taking vetted people,” he added, emphasizing the need to take pressure off Jordan, Lebanon and other neighbors of Syria – as well as European allies – by absorbing more of the displaced.
