  •  That part looks like a typo to me (6+ / 0-)

    2011 was three years after his election. Not re-election. It's clear from context in the story that's what it should say. As for "final years in office", I believe they mean his second and last term -- implying a sense of urgency because the time is running out. A couple more years isn't a long time for them to process thousands of applications.

    Anyway, sure, wait and see if it's true and if they follow through, of course I agree with that. But I don't think a typo in the article is a reason for suspicion. Typos happen!
