ISIS At The Doorstep?
ISLAMIC MILITANTS PREPARING ATTACKS ON U.S. SOIL?
Was Texas Gov. Rick Perry right after all?
Days after the administration of Barack Obama rebuked Perry for his claim that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) was attempting to gain entry to the United States via the porous American-Mexican border, Perry’s administration released a report doubling down on the claim.
“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,” a three-page warning from the Texas Department of Public Safety noted. “Social media account holders believed to be ISIS militants and propagandists have called for unspecified border operations.”
The Obama administration declined to validate the Texas report – saying there was no “credible threat” on the southwest border – but a separate warning issued by Washington, D.C.-based Judicial Watch seemed to support Perry’s claim.
“Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born improvised explosive devices (VBIED),” the group alleged.
Not only that, Judicial Watch claimed federal authorities had already issued warnings and begun mobilizing resources in response to this threat.
“High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued,” the Judicial Watch bulletin claimed.
The group quoted one federal source as saying the first attack on the border was “coming very soon.”
Our hunch? America’s warmongers want an attack like this to happen. Seriously … what better way to plunge America deeper into the Middle Eastern quicksand (once again) than an attack on the homeland?
More to the point, if America’s homeland is hit – should we really be surprised?
Seriously … we’re bombing these people where they live. Is it any shock they would try to bomb us where we live?
