Editor’s Note – Just yesterday, our president told the world he had no plan for ISIS/ISIL/IS in Syria and soon after Josh Earnest was walking a fine line in trying to clarify why the leader of the free world has no plan, “we don’t have a strategy yet,” largely blaming the media for not interpreting his words correctly.
Of course, the press just reported what he actually said.
Then we learned the PM Cameron of the UK acknowledged that MI5 had raised the threat level to ‘severe’ for the first time since 2010, but Obama and our federal departments would not.
In fact, in the last few days the words spoken by Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs General Martin Dempsey warning America of the severity of the threat was also walked back.
Then we learn from the new de facto truth department at Judicial Watch that we have a real and credible threat on our southern border by ISIS.
The chatter is now loud and emanating from many different and reliable sources that it is true that Commanding General of the 1st Armored Division and Fort Bliss, Major General Stephen M. Twitty, has been briefed today by the CIA, on a credible threat against the US by ISIS.
Once again, the words uttered by the administration are unclear, befuddled, unreliable, and often downright wrong. Why? Can we no longer trust anything coming from the White House anymore? Just over a month ago, another General was sounding the alarm:
The general in charge of U.S. Southern Command says America’s porous southern border poses as much a threat as any foreign power, with gangs and terrorist groups hiding among the tidal wave of illegals.
If Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly, commander of the U.S. Southern Command, keeps warning about the crisis at our southern border, he may soon join the long list of generals and admirals sacked by this administration as it decimates the military.
“In comparison to other global threats, the near collapse of societies in the hemisphere with the associated drug and (undocumented immigrant) flow are frequently viewed to be of low importance,” Kelly told Defense One, a website focused on national security issues. “Many argue these threats are not existential and do not challenge our national security. I disagree.” (Read the rest here.)
Of course, many of us have confirmed the presence of jihadists crossing the border for ages, yet the Obama Administration cannot utter the words – Jihadist threat. Please read on about this breaking news:
Judicial Watch: Feds’ Bulletin Describes Threat of Imminent Terrorist Attack on Southern Border
For those of us who’ve been raising alarms about both the jihadist threat and the national-security vulnerability created by the Obama administration’s non-enforcement of the immigration laws, this is not a surprise — particularly less than two weeks before September 11. But it is nonetheless jarring to read. Judicial Watch has just put out this statement:
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). 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.
Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat.
Specifically, Judicial Watch sources reveal that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is confirmed to now be operating in Juarez, a famously crime-infested narcotics hotbed situated across from El Paso, Texas. Violent crimes are so rampant in Juarez that the U.S. State Department has issued a number of travel warnings for anyone planning to go there. The last one was issued just a few days ago.
Intelligence officials have picked up radio talk and chatter indicating that the terrorist groups are going to “carry out an attack on the border,” according to one JW source. “It’s coming very soon,” according to this high-level source, who clearly identified the groups planning the plots as “ISIS and Al Qaeda.”
An attack is so imminent that the commanding general at Ft. Bliss, the U.S. Army post in El Paso, is being briefed, another source confirms.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) did not respond to multiple inquiries from Judicial Watch, both telephonic and in writing, about this information.
The disturbing inside intelligence comes on the heels of news reports revealing that U.S. intelligence has picked up increased chatter among Islamist terror networks approaching the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. While these terrorists reportedly plan their attack just outside the U.S., President Obama admits that “we don’t have a strategy yet” to combat ISIS.
“I don’t want to put the cart before the horse,” the commander-in-chief said this week during a White House press briefing. “I think what I’ve seen in some of the news reports suggest that folks are getting a little further ahead of what we’re at than what we currently are.”
The administration has also covered up, or at the very least downplayed, a serious epidemic of crime along the Mexican border even as heavily armed drug cartels have taken over portions of the region. Judicial Watch has reported that the U.S. Border Patrol actually ordered officers to avoid the most crime-infested stretches because they’re “too dangerous” and patrolling them could result in an “international incident” of cross border shooting.
In the meantime, who could forget the famous words of Obama’s first Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Napolitano; the southern border is “as secure as it has ever been.”
These new revelations are bound to impact the current debate about the border crisis and immigration policy.
