Mexican Drug Smugglers And Jihadists: Working Together?

Last month, brought this news of Iraqis being smuggled across the Mexican border into the United States. And as the PYY regulars may remember, I had a short post with some comments I'd like to revisit.

There are terrorist camps in the Middle East teaching Mexican culture and the Mexican dialect of Spanish, just so they can blend into the Mexican masses that are pouring into the U.S., like there is nothing there to stop them. That's because there isn't anything to stop them. And I fully expect that when we do get hit again, it may well be traced to Middle Eastern terrorists coming across the porous southern border.

This little revelation is certainly not new and may not concern many people, coming from me. But from this essay yesterday in Newsday, it appears more people are thinking about certain aspects of it.

....the cheap-labor lobbyists, terrorists and world-governing globalists are all moving ahead with their various plans. That's the conclusion to be drawn from an alarming story on the front page of yesterday's Washington Times, which informed us that "Islamic extremists embedded in the United States - posing as Hispanic nationals - are partnering with violent Mexican drug gangs to finance terror networks in the Middle East, according to a Drug Enforcement Administration report."

The DEA document, written and stamped "secret" in 2005, continues with these ominous words: "It is very likely that any future 'September 11' type of terrorist event in the United States may be facilitated, wittingly or unwittingly, by drug traffickers operating on both sides of the United States-Mexico border."

The Times article cited, can be found here. It starts off like this:

A ranking House Republican yesterday demanded a hearing based on recent reports that Islamic terrorists embedded in the United States are teaming with Mexican drug cartels to fund terrorism networks overseas.

When I think about all of the time wasted on Capitol Hill this year, conducting investigations into the matters that only have political implications, I wonder why these people cannot see past their partisan agendas long enough to come to the conclusion that we have serious problems that will not go away, without some attention. Just take a look at all of the hearings that show up on a search for hearings on global warming. Better yet, here's what shows up when you type in immigration. And the list goes on, all you have to do is type in the issue of your choice at GPO Access and you get a list of hearings, in which the majority of them address things that can wait. You do not see important issues like jihadists crossing the border.

So, I guess we will all just wait until there's another attack. Maybe when some Congressman or Senator loses someone important to them, we'll get some action. Either that or they'll blame the Executive Branch for not doing more. It's no wonder why, Congressional approval ratings are so low.
