ISIS DETERMINED TO ATTACK WITHIN U.S.
Military bases near the U.S. southern border have been placed on heightened alert as the Obama Administration, and other U.S. officials now fear imminent improvised explosive attacks will be carried out inside the U.S. by ISIS cells positioned just across the U.S. border in Mexico.
However, this all comes after Rep. Jeff Duncan, South Carolina, (R), accused DHS last week of ignoring border threats from ISIS which were previously mentioned by Gov. Rick Perry, Texas and others. In fact, Duncan was quoted telling America to “wake up”.
Moreover and to make matters worse, Michael S. Schmidt reporting for the New York Times pointed out in a recent article how terrorists could simply enter the country legally, writing:
[…] counterterrorism officials say they are far more concerned that an ISIS militant will enter the United States the same way millions of people do each year: legally, on a commercial flight. Their efforts have focused on the more than 2,000 Europeans and 100 Americans who have traveled to Syria to fight alongside extremist groups, nearly all of them crossing over its unprotected borders. Without markings in their passports to show that they traveled to Syria, American border authorities have few ways of determining where they were and stopping them from entering the country.
Warnings about the possibility of terrorists entering the United States from Mexico have been sounded in the past. During the 2012 presidential campaign both Rick Perry and Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee, said Islamic extremists working with countries in Latin America, including Mexico, posed a significant threat to the United States.
“We know that Hamas and Hezbollah are working in Mexico, as well as Iran, with their ploy to come into the United States,” Mr. Perry, the governor of Texas, said at a Republican debate in 2011. “So the idea that we need to have border security with the United States and Mexico is paramount to the entire Western Hemisphere.”
Mr. Perry repeated his concerns in a speech last month at the Heritage Foundation in Washington in which he said that because the border was not secure, “individuals from ISIS or other terrorist states could be” crossing into the United States. “I think it’s a very real possibility that they may have already used that,” he said.
Although none of this is really new as I reported back in July that Sen. John McCain was spotted with members of ISIS and that Islamic prayer rugs have even been found south of the border in the desert.
