Terrorist Don’t Necessarily Use The Front Door

That should be obvious to the most casual observer. however, it apparently is not obvious to the DHS. The fact is that terrorist do use the backdoor as well as the side doors. Recently Fox News ran this story:

 A book celebrating suicide bombers has been found in the Arizona desert just north of the U.S.- Mexican border, authorities tell Fox News. The book, “In Memory of Our Martyrs,” was spotted Tuesday by a U.S. Border Patrol agent out of the Casa Grande substation who was patrolling a route known for smuggling illegal immigrants and drugs.

So what was the reaction of the DHS? Something less than inspiring as you see here:

“At this time, DHS does not have any credible information on terrorist groups operating along the Southwest border,” a Department of Homeland Security official said in a statement.

I don’t know about you but that statement doesn’t make me feel all warm and secure. I guess the FBI is not credible because the Fox News story also tells us this:

Statements from U.S. officials, including FBI director Robert Mueller, have raised serious concerns in recent years over “OTMs” — or illegal immigrants other than Mexicans — who have crossed the southwest border at alarming rates.

Mueller testified before the House Appropriations Committee in March 2005 that “there are individuals from countries with known Al Qaeda connections who are changing their Islamic surnames to Hispanic-sounding names and obtaining false Hispanic identities, learning to speak Spanish and pretending to be Hispanic.”

Clearly President Obama and the DHS are very much aware that terrorist have easy access to our country via our porous borders and coasts. But they don’t seem to care. They talk the talk but they don’t walk the talk. It is as if the TSA’s ” grab and grope” program is just a show designed to convince the public that their government is doing everything possible to protect them. The reality is that the terrorist groups are laughing hysterically at us for being so stupid.

Are Obama and Naploitano stupid or is it that they think we are stupid? Is it possible that Obama  and Napolitano want another 9/11 type of incident to occur so they can have an excuse to take more of our freedoms away in the name of security? Or is this old man over reacting? What do you think?

But, before you tell me what you think, read this last bit from the Fox News story:

Authorities would not release a picture of the book to Fox News, or reveal how long they believe it was lying in the desert. Immigration officials have previously discovered items along the U.S.-Mexico border from Middle Eastern origin, including Iranian currency in Zapata, Texas, and a jacket found in Jim Hogg County, Texas, that was covered in patches including an Arabic military badge that illustrates an airplane flying into a tower.

        I just came back from visiting your site. You are doing some great work. I tried several times to leave a comment but for some reason my Word Press identity was not accepted???? At any rate I am going to add you to my blogroll. Keep-up the good work.

  1. I am sure he wants mayhem at the border or elsewhere so that he can suspend our rights at some point. This idiot Janet should do the job for him without really trying.

    1. I never thought I could say or believe such a thing of any President of the United States. But it seems to me that is the only way things add-up to make any sense. A lot of damage could be done in the next two years.

  2. I’ve already talked about the fact that thousands of jihadists must be here by now. 19 hijackers? Try 100, with suicide bombers and arsonists on the side. My guess is they’re just waiting for the word.

    1. Most of Latin America have large Arabic communities and not just in the major cities but in every village as well. They look Hispanic and the sound Hispanic. It would be very easy for AL Qaeda to infiltrate and assimilate themselves and then enter the US via its unprotected boarders.

  3. Sadly, I have to agree. There could be thousands of terrorists here now. Of course, to combat that, our rights will have to be curtailed.

  4. I believe that DHS and Obama have been derelict in the duties to secure the border. Now as to if they are doing to create another crisis to steal more of our liberties I cannot say. What I can say is that their lack of action threatens our security more and more each day. Great post Jim.

    1. What drives me crazy, John, is that as a country, we don’t take protecting our boarders seriously. I know there is no way to make our boarders 100% safe but we could do so much more than we do. I fear that we are going to pay a terrible price someday for this apparent indifference.
