Heya Erod. Here is some more from back on Aug 29th.
Report: ISIS Studying Mexican Border.....
A new report obtained by Fox News from the Texas Department of Public Safety indicates that elements of ISIS are interested in the U.S.-Mexico border as a means of entry into the United States. As Fox News' Jana Winter reports:
“A review of ISIS social media messaging during the week ending August 26 shows that militants are expressing an increased interest in the notion that they could clandestinely infiltrate the southwest border of US, for terror attack,” warns the Texas Department of Public Safety "situational awareness" bulletin, obtained by FoxNews.com. .....snip~
Report: ISIS Studying Mexican Border - Kevin Glass
I'm sorry, but this is ridiculous. ISIL is a little too busy getting bombed right now to figure out how to send people to Nicaragua so they can sneak into Mexico so they can sneak into the US.
The reality is:
- No country can hermetically seal its borders. It's just not possible. E.g. Israel has one of the most effective military forces in the world, and the border with Gaza Strip has fences, sensors, cameras, you name it. Yet the Palestinians were still able to dig dozens of tunnels right under the fence, and when the time came, popped out and fired rockets at Israeli civilians.
- The last batch of terrorists who did major damage to the US just flew in, using tourist visas.
- There's a lot more domestic threat than people usually acknowledge or remember. The Boston Marathon bombers, Tim McVeigh, the Unabomber, and Weather Underground didn't need passports.
- Islamic State are adept at using social media. They're pushing your buttons... and you're letting them. Nice.
The "zomg ISIL is coming from the South!!!" is a bunch of BS that a few right-wing ideologues are seizing on for their own ends. Fretting over it is not going to make the US one iota safer.
Oh were you screaming out for help? Don't worry lil fella.....if I see something on the horizon that you need panic about. I'll let you know.
So were you trying to say they haven't spread or don't put out propaganda.
Can you explain why BO Peeps Military peeps said the US Southern Border was able to be breached by any terrorists?
Damn.....just why is it that anybody who is somebody. Just doesn't think it is ridiculous?
Well there is BO's Head of Southern Command.....he rarely finds it ridiculous. Do you think the Marine Corp General was panicking?
Marine Corps General John Kelly, Head of U.S. Southern Command, Says Border Security an “Existential” Threat to the U.S. Main Stream Media Ignores Him.....
Breaking a trend of abysmally PC military leadership, the head of U.S. Southern Command recently dropped a bomb on the open borders crowd. Border security is now an “existential” threat to the country, according to the commander of U.S. Southern Command, Marine Corps Gen. John F. Kelly.....snip~
"But the Homeland Security Department, the F.B.I. and lawmakers who represent areas near the border say there is no truth to the warnings.

“There is no credible intelligence to suggest that there is an active plot by ISIL to attempt to cross the southern border,” Homeland Security officials said in a written statement, using an alternative acronym for the group."

How did Fox news get a Report from the Texas Dept of Public Safety, who picked up what the Terrorists were saying on social media then?
Uhm.....if they are studying maps of the US Border and looking into the Problems with Mexico on the border.....how can DHS say they are not plotting? Or that there is no credible intel?
Was DHS hoping for suggestions from ISIS?
"Everybody" apparently doesn't include the FBI, DHS, and counterterrorism experts.Can you explain why BO Peeps Military peeps said the US Southern Border was able to be breached by any terrorists? Damn.....just why is it that anybody who is somebody. Just doesn't think it is ridiculous?
"We don't have any credible information, that we are aware of, of known or suspected terrorists coming across the border," said Jennifer Lasley, a senior official in the Department of Homeland Security's intelligence and analysis office.
"The number of known watch-listed persons we are encountering on the Southwest border is minimal compared to commercial aviation," said John Wagner, assistant commissioner in the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol's Office of Field Operations. "We're talking tens versus thousands."

I think he was talking in February about how the insatiable demand for drugs by American citizens has set up a smuggler's network that is causing problems in the US... while trying to get his budget increased. Using his comments to suggest that ISIL is actually planning to enter the US via Mexico is, to put it mildly, a distortion of his comments.Well there is BO's Head of Southern Command.....he rarely finds it ridiculous. Do you think the Marine Corp General was panicking?
