Islamofascists Target Military Base
Posted by Joshua Price on November 26, 2007
The following story is from The Washington Times:
Fort Huachuca, the nation’s largest intelligence-training center, changed security measures in May after being warned that Islamist terrorists, with the aid of Mexican drug cartels, were planning an attack on the facility.
Fort officials changed security measures after sources warned that possibly 60 Afghan and Iraqi terrorists were to be smuggled into the U.S. through underground tunnels with high-powered weapons to attack the Arizona Army base, according to multiple confidential law enforcement documents obtained by The Washington Times.
“A portion of the operatives were in the United States, with the remainder not yet in the United States,” according to one of the documents, an FBI advisory that was distributed to the Defense Intelligence Agency, the CIA, Customs and Border Protection and the Justice Department, among several other law enforcement agencies throughout the nation. “The Afghanis and Iraqis shaved their beards so as not to appear to be Middle Easterners.”
According to the FBI advisory, each Middle Easterner paid Mexican drug lords $20,000 “or the equivalent in weapons” for the cartel’s assistance in smuggling them and their weapons through tunnels along the border into the U.S. The weapons would be sent through tunnels that supposedly ended in Arizona and New Mexico, but the Islamist terrorists would be smuggled through Laredo, Texas, and reclaim the weapons later.
This should be all anyone needs to understand that the border is necessarily linked to American national security.
One thing really stood out to me in this story:
“The Afghanis and Iraqis shaved their beards so as not to appear to be Middle Easterners.”
Believe me, this is going on quite a bit. It’s truly frightening to think about just how many Islamofascists have already gained access to this country via the Mexican border, perhaps shaving their beards as a disguise. I wish people would recognize that this a real tactic that is being used!
What is truly frustrating though is that with every passing day our borders remain rather porous, further compromising our security.
