    Pentagon: No evidence of ISIS at border

    The Defense Department on Friday pushed back against Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s (R) claim that fighters from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) might have entered the United States across its southern border.Perry, who is weighing another run for the president in 2016, made the assertion Thursday during a speech at the conservative Heritage Foundation.
    "There's the obvious great concern that, because of the condition of the border from the standpoint of it not being secure, and us not knowing who is penetrating across, that individuals from ISIS or other terrorist states could be [crossing]," he said. "There's a very real possibility that they may have already used that [strategy]."
    But the Pentagon’s top spokesman, Rear Adm. John Kirby, shot down that allegation.

    “I've seen no indication that they are coming across the border with Mexico. We have no information that leads us to believe that,” he said on CNN’s "New Day."
    Kirby said Pentagon leaders know the terrorist group does have “aspirations to hit western targets” and that the threat is something “we’ve got to take seriously, and we have to be ready for it.”

    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

    HTF would the DOD know anything about that?

    Remember this is the same bunch that unsuccessfully raided camps in Syria looking for hostages on BAD intelligence.

    Leaked CBP Report Shows Entire World Exploiting Open US Border

    People from 75 different countries have been captured at the border. ISIS has members from all over the world.

    Since they don't catch but a small percentage, who knows who's here.

    I think on this subject, i'll take Perry's word over the Pentagon.

    I wouldn't be surprised either if ISIS has a cell or 2 in the US already.

    Any proof that they are ISIS members? As the Pentagon said: "“I've seen no indication that they are coming across the border with Mexico. We have no information that leads us to believe that." Or are we just going to go with the argument that "well ISIS has members all over the world, so they could be". That augment is not evidence.

    So the Pentagon has checked and identified every individual that has crossed the border, including those that made it through without any detention or border patrol interaction?

    Since the border is absolutely NOT secure, it's a perfectly logical conclusion. Glad you're not in charge of US security. I just hope Homeland Security is smarter than you.

    When Rear Adm. John Kirby shows us proof, I'll believe him.
    Until then the Pentagon can start building a fence on the border while they watch for ISIS members.
