U.S. counterterrorism officials have authenticated a video by an al Qaeda recruiter threatening to smuggle a biological weapon into the United States via tunnels under the Mexico border, the latest sign of the terrorist group’s determination to stage another mass-casualty attack on the U.S. homeland.
The video aired earlier this year as a recruitment tool makes clear that al Qaeda is looking to exploit weaknesses in U.S. border security and also is willing to ally itself with white militia groups or other anti-government entities interested in carrying out an attack inside the United States, according to counterterrorism officials interviewed by The Washington Times.
The officials, who spoke only on the condition they not be named because of the sensitive nature of their work, stressed that there is no credible information that al Qaeda has acquired the capabilities to carry out a mass biological attack although its members have clearly sought the expertise.
The video first aired by the Arabic news network Al Jazeera in February and later posted to several Web sites shows Kuwaiti dissident Abdullah al-Nafisi telling a room full of supporters in Bahrain that al Qaeda is casing the U.S. border with Mexico to assess how to send terrorists and weapons into the U.S.
The fuckin’ terrorists have been traipsing across the border for some time.
DALLAS – Texas’ top homeland security official said Wednesday that terrorists with ties to Hezbollah, Hamas and al-Qaida have been arrested crossing the Texas border with Mexico in recent years. ”Has there ever been anyone linked to terrorism arrested?” Texas Homeland Security Director Steve McCraw said in a speech to the North Texas Crime Commission. “Yes, there was.”
His remarks appear to be among the most specific on the topic of terrorism arrests along the Texas-Mexico border. Local and elected officials have alluded to this happening but have been short on details.
There are tunnels under the border, but most illegals simply skip right on across.
The ‘religion of peace’ has stepped up the hostility, including the murder of young Army PVT William Long and the wounding of PVT Quenton Ezeagwula in Arkansas.
We’ve got Muslim terrorists flying back into the country after being trained in the Middle East to hone their terrorist skills.
How many ‘man-caused distasters’ is Janet Napolitano willing to risk before the idiot and her Department of Homeland Stupidity decide to do their jobs and secure the borders?
Oh, that’s right. The only ones she considers to be threats are gun owners, Obama critics, people opposed to illegal aliens, and Iraq War veterans…..like me.
Don’t you feel so much safer now that Obamessiah’s in charge?
