Publicly, The United States and Mexico deny that there are ISIS terrorists operating near El Paso, TX. However, the rapid deployment of FBI personnel, following the release of a Judicial Watch disclosure which reported that ISIS maintains a base camp only a few miles from El Paso, TX, is noteworthy. The fact that the gathering of FBI brass at the border, and DHS was not invited, speaks to the deep division that is forming within the government on this issue.
Judicial Watch report has come under intense criticism from Federal officials since it surfaced three days ago. However, the criticism is irrelevant and false. The presence of the ISIS camp is merely part of a bigger paramilitary force preparing to attack selected targets inside of the United States.
ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas, according to Judicial Watch sources that includes a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector. During the course of a joint operation last week, Mexican Army and Federal law enforcement officials discovered documents in Arabic and Urdu, as well as “plans” of Fort Bliss. The implications are obvious.
According to documents uncovered by Judicial Watch, the Juárez Cartel helps ISIS terrorists move through the desert and across the border between Santa Teresa and Sunland Park, New Mexico. The report goes on to state that east of El Paso and Ciudad Juárez, cartel-backed “coyotes” are also smuggling ISIS terrorists through the unguarded border between Acala and Fort Hancock, Texas. The Judicial Watch documents specifically state that these particular areas are targeted by ISIS because of “their understaffed municipal and county police forces as well as the already existing relative safe-havens the areas provide for the unchecked large-scale drug smuggling.”
