The United States is determined to destroy herself from within and we are watching that destruction live. While we are being distracted by the unaccompanied children, there is a far greater threat from adults coming in from terrorist nations.
Dennis Michael Lynch speaking on Blaze TV informed the public – again – that some of the OTMs are from countries that support terrorism. MS-13 is being paid $50,000 a head to take “special customers” into the U.S. from the Middle East, Russia and China, according to his information.
The majority of people coming in are not unaccompanied children, they are families and their numbers are in the hundreds of thousands. What is more alarming are the potential jihadis and communists coming in.
Mr. Lynch on blaze tv:
THEY HAVE LEFT EVIDENCE
Matthew Leber spokesman for the American Patriot, Three Percent, sent Breitbart News photos of what American security contractors on the ground believe is a Muslim prayer rug found near the border in Arizona last week.
They found it in a prime area for illegal crossings in Yucca Springs over to Copper Canyon.
The same contractor told Breitbart News last week that six Special Interest Aliens (SIA’s) from Afghanistan, Iraq, and Yemen were picked up by U.S. border patrol near Laredo, Texas. Each one had 60,000 Iraqi Dinars ($51.00) apiece on them.
U.S. Government officials who are directly responsible for our national security continue to affirm the vulnerability, according to Breitbart News.
In August 2007 former Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell stated that not only have terrorists used the Southwest border to enter the United States but that they will inevitably continue to do so as long as it is an available possibility.
In a July 2012 hearing before the full U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Homeland Security, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano confirmed that terrorists have crossed the Southwest border with the intent to harm the American people. Additionally, the U.S. Border Patrol regularly apprehends aliens from the 35 “special interest countries” designated by our intelligence community as countries that could export individuals that could bring harm to our country in the way of terrorism.”
From Fiscal Years 2006 to 2011, there were 1,918 apprehensions of these special interest aliens at our Southwest border.
THE MEDIA WORKS AGAINST THE TRUTH
Governor Rick Perry recently told Fox News:
“We have record high numbers of other than Mexicans being apprehended at the border. These are people that are coming from states like Syria that have substantial connections back to terrorist regimes and terrorist operations. So we’re seeing record, historic high numbers of these individuals being apprehended.”
He was ridiculed by Yahoo News, Politifact and others for his comments, yet, US intelligence indicates that Mexico is home to some 200,000 Syrian and Lebanese immigrants – most of them illegal – who were able to cross the border via an extensive web of contacts with drug cartels, both in Mexico and in other countries in South America.
Our media is actively working against our best interests.
HEZBOLLAH IN MEXICO
The following report is from a Global Security Studies manuscript published in the Fall of 2012 titled, Hezbollah and Al Shabaab in Mexico and the Terrorist Threat to the United States:
Hezbollah and Al Shabaab have been discovered to have a footprint in Mexico, are receiving Mexican language and cultural assimilation training, have been discovered to have a relationship of convenience with the Mexican drug cartels, and have been smuggling their operatives into the United States to raise money and to recruit members to their cause. With raising tensions between the U.S. and Iran, Iran has stated that it currently has the ability to reach out and target the U.S. on U.S. soil. Since it is unlikely Iran will send military troops to the U.S. and lacks the capacity to strike the U.S. with an intercontinental ballistic missile, with Hezbollah residing in Mexico Iran could use Hezbollah as a proxy to strike targets within the United States. With Al Shabaab aligning itself with al Qaeda, residing in Mexico, and successfully smuggling operatives into the U.S. This provides a force multiplier and an established strategic cell structure for al Qaeda to reside near and within the U.S. and target the U.S. on U.S. soil. Therefore, Hezbollah and Al Shabaab residing in Mexico pose a direct terrorist threat to the United States.
The lack of territory and border security has created an environment where drug cartels can easily smuggle weapons and personnel through Mexico and into the United States, which directly benefits Hezbollah and Al Shabaab terrorists seeking to target the United States. “There is a growing concern of the use by al-Shabaab of a range of trafficking and other networks in Latin America, especially, Mexico, that were they to decide to fundamentally target the U.S. homeland there is a well-defined ability to get into the U.S.” (Committee on Foreign Affairs, 2011).
ISRAEL HAS TRACKED HEZBOLLAH’S TRAVEL INTO THE U.S. FOR TWENTY YEARS
Israel has tracked the activities of Hezbollah on the U.S. southern border for 15 to 20 years. We have not tightened our borders despite this knowledge. We have a president who claims we tightened the borders and that they are secure as hundreds of thousands of anonymous people stream in.
EZLN march in Chiapas. In the mid-1990s, a leftist resistance group which calls itself The Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN) made Chiapas its home. Its attempts to fight the Mexican Army repeatedly failed, but the Zapatistas are still very active in the district’s rural areas. Chiapas, a dangerous place, is also a hub for radical Islamic activity.
Ynet News reported in 2012 that Muslim missionaries – terrorists – were active in Mexico, but that is not all:
Western intelligence agencies have been able to gather ample evidence suggesting that the drug cartels in Mexico – which are the de facto rulers of the northern districts bordering the US – are in cahoots with Islamic terror organizations, which are eager to execute attacks against American, Israeli, Jewish and western targets; but most of all, the Islamic terror groups are eager to make money, so they can fund their nefarious aspirations.
In December 2011, the US authorities released an indictment filed against Lebanese drug lord Ayman Juma, which exposed Hezbollah’s involvement with the Los Zetas drug cartel. According to the US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), Los Zetas is the most technologically advanced and most dangerous cartel operating in Mexico.
Ynet further reported that Iran denies any involvement in South America, however, in 2010, a report commissioned by the House Committee on Intelligence found that the ties between Hezbollah and the Mexican drug cartels, as well as the Iranian link, were getting stronger.
Hezbollah was massively embroiled in drugs and money laundering deals, as well as in arms trafficking in and out of Mexico.
Furthermore, US intelligence concluded that Hezbollah has established sleeper cells, intelligence infrastructure and training bases in Mexico and other South American countries. The Shiite group is also helping the drug lords build smuggling tunnels under the US-Mexico border and satellite images show that they are nearly identical to the maze of tunnels running under the Gaza-Egypt border.
Hezbollah is also training the cartels’ operatives in the dubious art of explosives, helping drug lords improve their bomb-making skills.
The committee found evidence that Hezbollah and Iranian Revolutionary Guard officials pick up fake passports in Venezuela – a close ally of Iran – prior to infiltrating the United States.
There are numerous reports of the growing threat of Hezbollah in Mexico, Central America and Southern America yet we continue to leave our border wide open. Why?
THE IRANIAN PLOT
In October 2011, the NY Times reported that the FBI foiled a plot by Iranian officials to murder Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the United States on U.S. soil.
The plans included a payment to the Los Zetas cartel who would bomb the Israeli Embassy in DC and the Saudi and Israeli Embassies in Argentina. There was a side deal between the Quds Force (Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps) and Los Zetas to funnel tons of opium from the mid-East to Mexico.
An informant for the DEA was able to intervene.
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., who announced the murder plot at a news conference in Washington, said it was “directed and approved by elements of the Iranian government and, specifically, senior members of the Quds Force.” He added that “high-up officials in those agencies, which is an integral part of the Iranian government, were responsible for this plot.”
The media made this into a plot by a used car salesman but it was much more than that.
THEY COME ON WAVE RUNNERS
What should be most concerning to Americans now is that Border Patrol says the drug cartels are in control of the border.
Illegals coming on wave runners driven by cartel members.
Look at the evidence yourself:
UNDERCOVER AGENT REPORT IN 2011
In May 2011, a former undercover agent told channel 10 news that Hezbollah had terror training camps on our southern border. The transcript follows:
A terrorist organization whose home base is in the Middle East has established another home base across the border in Mexico.
“They are recognized by many experts as the ‘A’ team of Muslim terrorist organizations,” a former U.S. intelligence agent told 10News.
The former agent, referring to Shi’a Muslim terrorist group Hezbollah, added, “They certainly have had successes in big-ticket bombings.”
Some of the group’s bombings include the U.S. embassy in Beirut and Israeli embassy in Argentina.
However, the group is now active much closer to San Diego.
“We are looking at 15 or 20 years that Hezbollah has been setting up shop in Mexico,” the agent told 10News.
Since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, U.S. policy has focused on al-Qaida and its offshoots.
“They are more shooters than thinkers it’s a lot of muscles, courage, desire but not a lot of training,” the agent said, referring to al-Qaida.
Hezbollah, he said, is far more advanced.
“Their operators are far more skilled they are the equals of Russians, Chinese or Cubans,” he said. “I consider Hezbollah much more dangerous in that sense because of strategic thinking; they think more long-term.”
Hezbolah has operated in South America for decades and then Central America, along with their sometime rival, sometime ally Hamas.
Now, the group is blending into Shi’a Muslim communities in Mexico, including Tijuana. Other pockets along the U.S.-Mexico border region remain largely unidentified as U.S. intelligence agencies are focused on the drug trade.
“They have had clandestine training in how to live in foreign hostile territories,” the agent said.
The agent, who has spent years deep undercover in Mexico, said Hezbollah is partnering with drug organizations, but which ones is not clear at this time.
He told 10News the group receives cartel cash and protection in exchange for Hezbollah expertise.
“From money laundering to firearms training and explosives training,” the agent said.
For example, he tracked, along with Mexican intelligence, two Hezbollah operatives in safe houses in Tijuana and Durango
“I confirmed the participation of cartel members as well as other Hezbollah individuals living and operating out of there,” he said.
Tunnels the cartels have built that cross from Mexico into the U.S. have grown increasingly sophisticated. It is a learned skill, the agent said points to Hezbollah’s involvement.
“Where are the knowledgeable tunnel builders? Certainly in the Middle East,” he said.
Why have Americans not heard more about Hezbollah’s activities happening so close to the border?
“If they really wanted to start blowing stuff up, they could do it,” the agent said.
According to the agent, the organization sees the U.S. as their “cash cow,” with illegal drug and immigration operations. Many senior Hezbollah leaders are wealthy businessmen, the agent said.
“The money they are sending back to Lebanon is too important right now to jeopardize those operations,” he said.
The agent said the real concern is the group’s long-term goal of radicalizing Muslim communities.
“They’re focusing on developing infiltrating communities within North America,” the agent told 10News.
CBS REPORT IN 2010
Local CBS News reported on OTMs in twice in 2010:
There will be a House hearing on the threat on July 23rd. The hearing is titled, “Hearing: The Rising Terrorist Threat and the Unfulfilled 9/11 Recommendation”.
