The emperor has no strategy

For months conservative national security analysts have been concerned about both the jihadist threat and the national-security vulnerability created by the Obama administration’s lack of enforcement of immigration laws. It is thus not a surprise to read a statement put out by Judicial Watch, which says in part:

“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 High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to 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.

Intelligence officials have picked up radio talk and chatter indicating that the terrorist groups are going to “carry out an attack on the border,” and that “it’s coming very soon.”

The substance of this Judicial Watch report is confirmed by a document leaked to the media in Texas. In a document released by the Texas Department of Public Safety there is a warning that ISIS is actively promoting and encouraging supporters to take advantage of the porous Texas-Mexico border to carry out terrorist attacks against the US. The Al Qaeda English language online magazine is suggesting targets for Lone Wolf terror attacks. Among those listed are Times Square, Las Vegas and the Air Force Academy.

The document attributes the increased interest in an attack across the border by ISIS and potentially other terrorist organizations to a media story by video journalist James O'Keefe that showed images of him crossing the porous Texas-Mexico border while wearing an Osama bin Laden mask.

In addition to the report, US Border Patrol Agents confirmed that the US Border Patrol agency was indeed taking the threat seriously. A Border Patrol agent in the Laredo Sector is reported to have said that they had credible information that ISIS was attempting to find individuals and groups in Nuevo-Laredo Mexico to assist in gaining entry into the United States.

The administration while not denying the threat says that there are not any specific dates, times or places that have been targeted. Could it be that the President is returning to the White House rather than staying in New York after a fund raiser this weekend because of the threat?

This issue has been widely reported on line but the main stream media have failed to devote any time to it. Is this really helping the people of the country when a threat is not reported for fear of showing that the emperor has no strategy—he even admitted that he had no strategy the other day.
