Judicial Watch: FBI Scrambles After ISIS Report
After reporting earlier this week that ISIS currently has terror cells along just south of the Mexican Border, Judicial Watch reports that the FBI has called a “special” meeting at the U.S. Consulate in Juarez in an attempt to gain control of the narrative:
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.
Judicial Watch notes that the FBI’s rapid response to its report belies public denials from the both the U.S. and Mexican governments that Islamic terrorists are active on the border. As TruthRevolt reported earlier this week, JW provided specific locations of ISIS cells and outlined its use of Juarez Cartel “coyotes,” who make a living smuggling people across the border.
According to JW’s sources, which include a Mexican Federal Police inspector and a Mexican Army field grade officer, one ISIS camp is just a few miles from El Paso, Texas, in an area known as “Anapra” west of Juarez. The other is in Puerto Palomas. JW provides some recent evidence of ISIS activity:
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.
The coyotes working with ISIS, claims JW, are operating between Santa Teresa and Sunland Park, New Mexico, as well as 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.
