Judicial Watch Pinch-Hitting for the FBI

Family Security Matters

Despite the growing menace and media savvy of the terrorist Islamic group ISIS, the FBI appears to be, once again, failing in its investigative and enforcement responsibilities. The agency that let us down with 9/11 and, afterward, reacted mainly in a flurry of political correctness and appeasement toward Muslims is now trying to reassure the American public that we have nothing to fear from ISIS on the North American continent.

This despite warnings from the nonprofit Judicial Watch of ISIS activism in Mexico, and recent ISIS-related arrests in Minnesota.  More is needed from the nation’s top domestic intelligence and security agency than this whistling in the dark if we are to be safe in our own country.

Official government estimates of ISIS recruits vary widely from 20,000 to 50,000.  Nicholas Rasmussen, director of the federal National Counterterrorism Center, who places the number at more than 20,000, reports that fighters hail from 90 countries, with an estimated 3,400 from Western countries, including over 150 from the United States.  Rasmussen admits that there is “likely more information out there that we have not yet been able to collect,” and that there could also be “greater numbers of foreign fighters, and potentially even greater numbers of individuals from western countries and the United States who’ve traveled to the conflict zones.”

FBI Holds “Special” Meeting in Juárez to Address ISIS, DHS Not Invited

Judicial Watch

Responding to Judicial Watch’s report earlier this week of ISIS activity along the Mexican border, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) supervisors called a “special” meeting at the U.S. Consulate in Ciudad Juárez.

A high-level intelligence source, who must remain anonymous for safety reasons, confirmed that the meeting was convened specifically to address a press strategy to deny Judicial Watch’s accurate reporting and identify who is providing information to JW. FBI supervisory personnel met with Mexican Army officers and Mexican Federal Police officials, according to JW’s intelligence source. The FBI liaison officers regularly assigned to Mexico were not present at the meeting and conspicuously absent were representatives from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). It’s not clear why DHS did not participate.

Publicly, U.S. and Mexico have denied that Islamic terrorists are operating in the southern border region, but the rapid deployment of FBI brass in the aftermath of JW’s report seems to indicate otherwise. A Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector were among the sources that confirmed to JW that ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas. The base is around eight miles from the U.S. border in an area known as “Anapra” situated just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua.

Another ISIS cell to the west of Ciudad Juárez, in Puerto Palomas, targets the New Mexico towns of Columbus and Deming for easy access to the United States, the same knowledgeable sources confirm. 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 sprawling military installation that houses the US Army’s 1st Armored Division. Muslim prayer rugs were recovered with the documents during the operation.

“Coyotes” engaged in human smuggling – and working for the Juárez Cartel – help move ISIS terrorists through the desert and across the border between Santa Teresa and Sunland Park, New Mexico. To the east of El Paso and Ciudad Juárez, cartel-backed “coyotes” are also smuggling ISIS terrorists through the porous border between Acala and Fort Hancock, Texas. These specific areas were targeted for exploitation by ISIS because of their understaffed municipal and county police forces, and the relative safe-havens the areas provide for the unchecked large-scale drug smuggling that was already ongoing.

Last August JW reported that ISIS, operating from Ciudad Juárez, was planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle borne improvised explosive devices (VBIED). High-level U.S. federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources confirmed then that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border had been issued. Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies were placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning the imminent terrorist threat.

12,509 illegal kids already over border in second wave, just 1 in 6 returned

Free Republic

The next explosion of illegal teen border crossing is in full swing, but just one-in-six are being sent home, with most of the rest settled in the United States, according to new government figures.

The U.S. Border Patrol agency reported that they have seized 12,509 illegals under age 18 since October, making it the second biggest surge in history after last year’s unprecedented movement of unaccompanied youths across the nation’s southern border.

However, when compared to the numbers of illegal kids turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, it is clear that most are being “booked in” to U.S. facilities and then released — not sent home. ICE documents provided to the Washington Examiner shows that ICE is accepting an average of 2,000 a month, meaning that the Border Patrol is returning just one of six kids to their countries, mostly Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras.

Al Qaeda Terrorist Wanted by FBI Crossed Back and Forth Into U.S. From Mexico

Judicial Watch

An Al Qaeda terrorist on the FBI’s most wanted list for years crossed back and forth into the United States from Mexico to meet fellow militant Islamists in Texas and piloted an aircraft into the Cielo Dorado airfield in Anthony, New Mexico, law enforcement sources tell Judicial Watch.

The same Al Qaeda operative helped plan the 2009 bombing of talk-show superstar Oprah Winfrey’s Chicago studios and the iconic Sears Tower (renamed Willis Tower), a story that Judicial Watch broke just last week. His name is Adnan G. El Shukrijumah (also known as “Javier Robles”) and over the weekend he was killed in Pakistan, according to military officials in the Islamic republic.

In 2010 Shukrijumah was indicted in the Eastern District of New York for his role in a terrorist plot to attack targets in the United States—including New York City’s subway system—and the United Kingdom, according the FBI. The plot against New York City’s subway system was directed by senior Al Qaeda leadership in Pakistan, the FBI says, and was also directly related to a scheme by Al Qaeda plotters in Pakistan to use Western operatives to attack a target in the United States.

US Marine Released From Mexico… Our Marine Is Coming Home

Conservative Tribune

Finally, Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, the American Marine who was held in Mexico, is about to be released. According to a family spokesman, a Mexican judge ordered that he be released from prison immediately.

He spent over eight months in prison as his family begged and pleaded with the Obama administration to no avail to work to secure his release.

For many of you who have been following my political blogs, you just may have become aware of my absolute and redundant disparagement for Barack Obama; a repudiation which once led me to writing my article, later turned into a book ‘The Beginning of the End’, wherein I go to great lengths in sharing with the American public my worst fears for what this man [Barack Obama] and his cronies are doing to this great nation of ours, to how this charlatan impostor has transformed America, sinking our country to unfathomable levels never before seen of disarray, chaos and bedlam both here and abroad.

Never before has America been closer to hitting rock-bottom as we are under the presidency of this Obama person; including but not limited to some of the worst presidential specimens in recent history such as was the pitiable Jimmy Carter. Not even this mournful version of a president [Carter], could come close to our present adaption – a decried and deprecated fraud, who calls himself Barack Hussein Obama.

At times, the Obama presidency seems like a Greek tragedy; one riddled with tragic plots based upon unending myths from the oral traditions of archaic epics written by this theater’s greatest authors Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides, notwithstanding that epoch’s plausible lack of such a portentous liar as is our esteemed president. I thought I had seen it all in this presidency. I have seen the unending scandals; the unparalleled controversies, from Obamacare to Benghazi; to the IRS; to a tempestuous expansion of the terrorist ISIL army; to our weakened position as leader of the free world; to our acquiescent world of economic prowess and our deferential writs of passage given to countries such as China and resurgent Russian expansionism under the auspices of Vladimir Putin; I have seen it all. Notwithstanding this epitome of decadency in the greater scope of things, I must, however, turn your attention to those seemingly more insignificant if yet, irretrievably more repugnant happenings in Obama’s disgraceful reign of un-American postures and outright reprehensible legacies.

My dissertation today deals with none other than the saga of Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, spinelessly arrested in Mexico on March 31st, 2014, charged with the unlawful entry into that country while in possession of unauthorized loaded weaponry – a serious violation of Mexican law, for which he is now on trial, albeit the fact that Sgt. Tahmooressi’s crossing of the Mexican border was as innocuous as taking a taking a wrong turn in a poorly marked border-entry road.

Congress Takes Up Case of U.S. ‘War Hero’ Jailed in Mexico, Ignored by Obama

(CNSNews.com) – A House Foreign Affairs subcommittee took up the “extremely important issue” of a U.S. Afghanistan war veteran who’s been held in a Mexican prison for more than six months after taking a wrong turn into Mexico with guns in his car.

Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi says the whole thing was a mistake, but Mexico has so far refused appeals from his mother and even from members of Congress to release him.

In his opening statement on Wednesday, Rep. Matt Salmon (R-Ariz.) said he is “mystified” that President Obama found time to negotiate with the Taliban for the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who walked away from his unit in Afghanistan, but couldn’t find time to “call our ally, the Mexican president, to appeal to him on behalf of our Marine.”

“If we in Congress don’t do everthing in our power to get Sgt. Tahmooressi, an injured war hero, back to the States for treatment, then what are we doing here? Making sure that our combat veterans are taken care of when they return is one of our most honored and sacred obligations.”
