Judicial Watch, perhaps the most effective government watchdog, reports high-level federal law enforcement sources saying an attack along our southern border may be imminent. These sources claim that ISIS and al Qaeda personnel are present in Ciudad Juarez, a city on the Mexican border directly opposite El Paso, Texas. A warning bulletin has been issued to to DHS, FBI, Defense agencies and others warning that these groups intend to carry out these attacks using vehicle borne improvised explosive devices (VBIED). The report states:
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 JW source. “It’s coming very soon,” according to this high-level source, who clearly identified the groups planning the plots as “ISIS and Al Qaeda.”
The possible threat from “Third Country Nationals” or TNI has been reported a number of times on these pages and elsewhere. Most notably, former Border Patrol agent, Zachary Taylor stated ominously that the illegal immigrant border “surge” was a form of asymmetric warfare. While we focused on “the children” flooding the border near McAllen, Texas – who it turns out were not primarily children at all – elsewhere, TNIs, including many from hostile nations, are coming across by the thousands.
In a possibly related event, 20 illegals were filmed storming ashore from boats in San Diego, California, early Monday morning. They had apparently coordinated with others in San Diego as they were observed entering an alley where they were able to change clothes. Seven were captured but the rest got away. A second attempt was made on Tuesday at 1 am, but all 20 were apprehended by border agents on the lookout for them.
former Congressman, Lt. Col. Allen West, an experienced combat commander, suggested these could be “dry runs,’ i.e. experimental probes in the run up to something more serious. “There were many occasions,” he said, “when the enemy in Iraq and Afghanistan would conduct probing tests to assess reactions…”
While the reported warning is specifically for the border, this is one of the busiest travel weekends of the year, and right around the corner from 9/11 – a perfect opportunity to launch an attack anywhere in the U.S. And if you think they are not here already in force, I have a job for you on Obama’s national security team.
