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.
Islamist militias in Libya took control of nearly a dozen commercial jetliners last month, and western intelligence agencies recently issued a warning that the jets could be used in terrorist attacks across North Africa.
Intelligence reports of the stolen jetliners were distributed within the U.S. government over the past two weeks and included a warning that one or more of the aircraft could be used in an attack later this month on the date marking the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks against New York and Washington, said U.S. officials familiar with the reports.
“There are a number of commercial airliners in Libya that are missing,” said one official. “We found out on September 11 what can happen with hijacked planes.”
The official said the aircraft are a serious counterterrorism concern because reports of terrorist control over the Libyan airliners come three weeks before the 13th anniversary of 9/11 attacks and the second anniversary of the Libyan terrorist attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi.
Four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed in the Benghazi attack, which the Obama administration initially said was the result of a spontaneous demonstration against an anti-Muslim video.
UNITED NATIONS, August 28 (RIA Novosti) – A record number of Libyans are leaving the country amid new airstrikes, outgoing UN Libya envoy, Tarek Mitri, told the UN Security Council Wednesday.
“In Tripoli, we have seen an unprecedented movement of population in an attempt to escape the fighting,” Mitri said.
“The damage inflict on the public institutions in Tripoli’s southern and western sections – including the airport, the main oil depot, roads and bridges – is nothing less than tragic,” he added.
Despite the destruction of the airport, many are leaving the Tripoli airport and the country as a whole.
“Conservative figures for those displaced are estimated at over 100,000, with at least another 150,000 having sought refuge abroad, including workers, who also fled the country,” Mitri said.
The UN Support Mission in Libya has pulled out its international staff, including Mitri, who is to be replaced as UN envoy by Bernardino Leon of Spain on September 1.
On August 7, a small team led by Mitri’s deputy traveled to Tripoli to explore options for an unconditional ceasefire.
“While all engaged constructively with our proposals, it is clear that more work is needed to overcome mistrust between the parties to the conflict,” he said.
Libya is currently facing its worst wave of violence since the 2011 overthrow of the country’s long-standing leader Muammar Gaddafi and the subsequent civil war. Clashes between government forces and Islamist-allied militias, armed with weapons, seized from Gaddafi government ammunition depots, have continued in the country for months. Many countries are evacuating their citizens and diplomatic staff from the country.
At yesterday’s tan suit presser, President Obama said a whole lot of nothing. After informing our ISIS enemies that he has no idea what he’s going to do about them – if anything – he turned his attention to Russia. It’s should be obvious to every clear-thinking man, woman, and child that, if over a thousand troops, tanks, and paratroopers drop into a foreign nation, it’s being invaded. Unfortunately, it seems that it’s not obvious to Barack Obama. …Because the word “invasion” has magically disappeared from his vocabulary.
According to the President, the Russian invasion of Ukraine is not an invasion. It’s either “an aggression,” an “internvention,” or some kind of “ongoing incursion.”
So why can’t Barack Obama bring himself to utter the “I-word?” Most media outlets are looking for a geo-political reason, but you don’t need to work that hard. If there’s one thing we know about Barack Obama, it’s that – for him – everything is about Barack Obama. The nation, the world, and the very fabric of the known universe revolve around his visage.
So I have a theory about why he’s so reticent to call this an invasion: Sarah Palin.
Back in 2008, Sarah Palin warned the world that, if the United States elected a weak-minded equivocator like Senator Barack Obama as its next President, it would embolden Vladimir Putin and spark an invasion of Ukraine.
As she said at the time:
“After the Russian army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama’s reaction was one of moral indecision and equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia’s Putin to invade Ukraine next.”
She was, as you’ll certainly recall, lampooned endlessly for the assertion. This is where the infamous “I can see Russia from my house” bit on SNL came from. Now, it turns out that her prognostication was 100%, dead-on, correct.
Not only did she nail the countries involved, but she also stuck the landing by predicting the reason. Putin doesn’t care what the rest of the world thinks, and he has no reason to concern himself with Obama, because Obama has projected nothing but abject weakness.
Sarah Palin was “right” with a specificity rarely seen in politics and the left spent six years mocking her mercilessly for it.
To admit that the “stupidest woman on the face of the Earth” was correct all along would not only be an embarrassment, it would be anathema to every single thing for which the modern Democrat party stands: namely ego, arrogance, and agenda. For them, Palin is public enemy number one. She is the embodiment of everything they despise and a six-year focal point for their unhinged rage.
She can NEVER be allowed to be proven right. She said Putin would invade Ukraine, so there is no invasion of Ukraine.
Is it petty? Yes. Is it a childish? Sure. Is it everything we’ve come to expect from the petty man currently occupying the Oval Office?
