Is An Islamic Terror Attack Through Our Southern Border Already In Motion?


Islamic Terrorists Crossing Border Cartoon
Michael Scheuer, a former Central Intelligence Agency officer, told Fox News over the weekend that it would be naive to think that Islamic State jihadists would not use the U.S. southern border to their advantage to gain an entry point into the country.
 
"You'd have to be silly not to take an advantage of that opportunity. You can say many things about the Islamists, but silly they are not," Scheuer said. "They may be brutal, but they are not dumb. We are the dumb ones."
 
Scheuer added that it's pretty common to see people from Asia and the Middle East use the U.S.-Mexico border to gain access into the country.
 
"We are confidently sure that every month a number of Arabs or Pakistanis come across the border illegally in the south," Scheuer told Fox News.
 
Scheuer’s comments, reported in The Christian Post come on the heels of an alert issued by ouor friends at Judicial Watch that Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle borne improvised explosive devices (VBIED).
 
Judicial Watch cited high-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources that have confirmed that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued. Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat.
 
Specifically, the government sources revealed to Judicial Watch that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is confirmed to now be operating in Juarez, a famously crime-infested narcotics hotbed situated across from El Paso, Texas.
 
Violent crimes are so rampant in Juarez that the U.S. State Department has issued a number of travel warnings for anyone planning to go there. The last one was issued just a few days ago.
 
Intelligence officials have picked up radio talk and chatter indicating that the terrorist groups are going to “carry out an attack on the border,” according to one Judicial Watch source.  “It’s coming very soon,” according to another high-level source, who clearly identified the groups planning the plots as “ISIS and Al Qaeda.” An attack is so imminent that the commanding general at Ft. Bliss, the U.S. Army post in El Paso, is being briefed, JW’s sources say. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) did not respond to multiple inquiries from Judicial Watch, both telephonic and in writing, about this information.
 
Two days after Judicial Watch published their report Ft. Bliss implemented increased security measures. The statement that went out to the media attributes the move to several recent security assessments and the constant concern for the safety of military members, families, employees and civilians. However,  El Paso’snewspaper credited Judicial Watch’s Friday piece about ISIS terrorists planning an attack on U.S. soil from Juarez as a possible factor.
 
But all of this is nothing new as our friend LTC Allen West observed back on July 11, “Congressman Ted Poe (R-TX) told CBS’s local Dallas Fort Worth affiliate he believes that ISIS will use Texas’s southern border to enter the United States. “Of course the way they would come to the United States would be through the porous border with Mexico. The drug cartels will bring people into the country no matter who they are — for money.”
 
The U.S. Border Patrol has a specific classification for those caught illegally entering America called OTMs (Other than Mexicans) which denotes those not of Hispanic descent. It is well known that drug cartels are assisting Islamic terrorists in gaining entrance and crossing the border. In fact it’s been going on for some time.
 
According to Breitbart.com, Human Events reported in 2010 that Iranian currency and prayer rugs were regularly found near the southern border.
 
A November 2012 House Committee on Homeland Security report from the Oversight Sub-Committee stated:
 
U.S. Government officials who are directly responsible for our national security continue to affirm the vulnerability. In August 2007 former Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell stated that not only have terrorists used the Southwest border to enter the United States but that they will inevitably continue to do so as long as it is an available possibility. (Emphasis ours)
 
In a July 2012 hearing before the full U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Homeland Security, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano confirmed that terrorists have crossed the Southwest border with the intent to harm the American people. Additionally, the U.S. Border Patrol regularly apprehends aliens from the 35 “special interest countries” designated by our intelligence community as countries that could export individuals that could bring harm to our country in the way of terrorism.” From Fiscal Years 2006 to 2011, there were 1,918 apprehensions of these Special Interest Aliens at our Southwest border.
 
The latest disturbing inside intelligence revealed by Judicial Watch comes on the heels of news reports revealing that U.S. intelligence has picked up increased chatter among Islamist terror networks approaching the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. While these terrorists reportedly plan their attack just outside the U.S., President Obama admits that “we don’t have a strategy yet” to combat ISIS. “I don’t want to put the cart before the horse,” the President Obama said this week during a White House press briefing. “I think what I’ve seen in some of the news reports suggest that folks are getting a little further ahead of what we’re at than what we currently are.”
 
These new revelations are bound to impact the current debate about the border crisis and immigration policy – if the establishment media will stop reporting on the self-inflicted “humanitarian crisis” Obama has created and help connect the dots and let the American people know just how dangerous the threat of Islamic terrorism on the southern border has become on Obama’s watch.
