The Obama administration had numerous opportunities to arrest Mexican drug and weapons traffickers before murdering a federal U.S. agent and seriously wounding his partner but opted for the hands-off approach, a new federal audit reveals. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), which operates under the Department of Justice (DOJ), should have stopped the traffickers—members of the Los Zetas organization—long before the Immigration and Customs (ICE) agents were ambushed in Mexico with firearms smuggled south of the border thanks to a once-secret Obama administration gun-running operation.
“Homeland Security Official: ISIS Training Terrorists South of Border With Help from Mexican Drug Cartels”
A top ranking Homeland Security official says Mexican drug cartels are helping ISIS sneak across the southern border to scope out targets for terrorist attacks. ISIS operative Shaykh Mahmood Omar Khabir has reportedly been training militants near the US border near Ciudad Juarez for the past year.
A government agency reveals that the nation’s most violent street gang has been energized by the barrage of illegal immigrant minors who have entered the U.S. through Mexico, confirming a Judicial Watch report last summer that gangs were actively recruiting members at shelters housing the new arrivals.
The tens of thousands of illegal immigrants, coined Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) by the government, came mostly from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. The Obama administration rolled out the welcome mat, quickly offering housing, food, medical treatment and a free education. The UACs have brought indangerous diseases-including swine flu, dengue fever, Ebola virus and tuberculosis- and have occupied our military bases as shelters. Many have been disbursed throughout the U.S., igniting a crisis for overwhelmed public school districts nationwide.
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.”
Over last weekend, it finally got out—despite suppression from the White House and the media—that the Mexican drug cartels/human traffickers are now firing .50 caliber ammo at our USBP Agents. These are bullets that can reach their targets as much as a mile away. This is an act of war.
Yet, neither the Pretend POTUS and Dictator-in-Chief Barack Hussein Obama nor any of his minions comment on it at all. Neither does Obama try to stop the thousands of illegals (largely gang members, drug cartels/human traffickers and Islamists…not children) that he has invited into the country as a foreign invasion force to replace US citizens and help him bring down the USA. Besides, he’s already decimated most of the US military, demanded the Border Patrol “stand down” and no longer attempts to stop anyone entering the USA while placing them on diaper and baby-sitting duties for the children coming in with their parents. What difference would some USBP deaths—or any additional US citizen deaths—mean to him? He does, after all, have a 17-day vacation in August coming up.
In a shocking revelation made by a veteran U.S. counterterrorism expert, Hezbollah has infiltrated the Southwest United States by joining forces with Mexican drug cartels that have long operated in the region.
Judicial Watch has for years reported on the chilling connection between Islamic extremists and Mexican drug cartels. In fact, as far back as 2007 JW wrote about an astounding Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) report that lays out how Islamic terrorists and Mexican drug gangs have teamed up to successfully penetrate the U.S. as well as finance terror networks in the Middle East
John Dodson, the federal agent who blew the whistle on the controversial “Fast and Furious” weapons scheme, says he is still hanging onto his job — by a thread.
“It was such an atrocious program, it was so misguided, idiotic, maybe even they can have a hard time justifying or finding a reason to be able to terminate me over bringing to light the faults with the program,” Dodson told “The Steve Malzberg Show” on Newsmax TV.

Dodson is the author of “The Unarmed Truth: My Fight to Blow the Whistle and Expose Fast and Furious,” which chronicles how the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms allowed weapons from the United States to pass into the hands of gun smugglers so they could be traced to Mexican drug cartels.
That resulted in an orgy of violence that could be traced back to those weapons.
“We knew that these straw purchasers were buying these firearms 15, 20, 25 a day from the same dealer, and we knew that these weapons were going to be trafficked nearly immediately to some of the most violent criminal organizations that this part of the world’s ever seen, and yet we did nothing to stop it,” Dodson, an ATF agent, said Wednesday.
“Nobody’s ever explained where this started from, who thought this was a good idea, and how no one’s been held accountable for it.”
Dodson said a number of agents involved in “Fast and Furious” have been punished for blowing the whistle on the ill-fated project.
“There were several other agents that stood up as well, not as high-profile as I did, but they put just as much on the line, had as much skin in the game as I did,” he said.
