    Not sure of the value of Kirby's statement, in an August 26, 2014 interview, he was also unaware of Qatar's support for terrorist groups and the the State Department's Country Reports on Terrorism 2013 which rated Qatar as "a significant terrorist financing risk".

    Q: Are you concerned that Qatar had supported terrorist groups?

    ADM. KIRBY: I've seen those reports. And if the reports are true, absolutely, it's concerning.

    However, Qatar’s monitoring of private individuals’ and charitable associations’ contributions to foreign entities remained inconsistent. Qatari-based terrorist fundraisers, whether acting as individuals or as representatives of other groups, were a significant terrorist financing risk and may have supported terrorist groups in countries such as Syria. The ascension of the new Emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani did not result in any political changes that would affect the Government of Qatar’s ability to counter terrorism.

    I wasn't aware that anyone from the DoD was actually guarding the border. Does the DoD have any evidence of corn prices going up or even unemployment going down? I'd like to hear the DoD's observations on all aspects of government action/inaction to see what they do and do not have evidence.

    That was my first thought too. The DOD has nobody on the border, WTF do they know?

    But the border is only one concern given the ability of ISIS to recruit fighters who live here. We now have reports of two Americans who died in recent days fighting for ISIS in Syria. How did they hookup with ISIS? How did they get to Syria?

    I would very much like to see an effort to keep the US from turning into the UK where ISIS openly recruits in London and 1500 citizens have joined ISIS in Syria.

    Rick Perry recently stated that ISIS might have entered the US through the Mexican border.... Well... It seems to just be more bull**** out of Perry's mouth [/FONT][/COLOR]
    While Rick Perry is full of **** most of the time, THIS time he makes a valid point (Valid in that ISIS COULD or maybe even has entered the country). How do we know there hasn't been? I mean if we can't stop THOUSANDS from entereing the U.S. illegally how do we know NONE of them are ISIS or for that matter any other terrorist, cartel, drug runner group?

    It's a catch 22 here IMO. If the DoD can monitor people to KNOW they are not from ISIS, then they are intentially letting illegals into this country which should be a felony. If they can't monitor illegals coming into the country, then they cannot confirm that ISIS or any other terrorist, cartel, drug runner, etc. has entered the country which would make Perry's comments valid. Well valid in the sense we don't know if ISIS has entered or not.

    Indeed. Since only a portion of the actual number of illegals are detained and many are not even vetted or processed, we have no clear picture of who is what.

    There's also no concrete evidence to say they haven't or won't either. I don't think Perry can definitively say ISIS has entered the country, but I will agree with him that there is a serious vulnerability in the southern border for ISIS (or any other terrorists group) to enter the country.

    And we may not know for years if they entered. Al-Qaeda proved one thing with the 9/11 attacks and that is they are VERY patient and will wait years to attack when they get to a place.

    Ok, so no one from the Pentagon has actually been to the border? See the credibility issue?
