An al-Qaeda operative today sits in jail in Brewster, Texas, as a smuggling team run by Hezbollah has been dismantled by the FBI. Terrorists were being smuggled in to conduct attacks on Americans. This operation was broken up, but with our porous border, did others make it in, and are we facing attacks in the near future?

What happened here in Texas demonstrates more than anything else the need for the Mexican border to have a wall, and for troops to man that wall.

Article is here.

Hezbollah Busted in Mexican Smuggling Operation

FBI's Mueller: Hezbollah Busted in Mexican Smuggling Operation

http://www.newsmax.com/archives/ic/2006/3/30/223801.shtml?s=lh

FBI Director Robert Mueller said this week that his agency busted a smuggling ring organized by the terrorist group Hezbollah that had operatives cross the Mexican border to carry out possible terrorist attacks inside the U.S.

"This was an occasion in which Hezbollah operatives were assisting others with some association with Hezbollah in coming to the United States,” Mueller told a House Appropriations subcommittee during a Tuesday hearing on the FBI's budget.

In a stunning revelation, Mueller admitted that Hezbollah had succeeded in smuggling some of its operatives across the border, telling the House committee: "That was an organization that we dismantled and identified those persons who had been smuggled in. And they have been addressed as well.”

Hezbollah was responsible for the single most deadly terrorist attack against the U.S. before 9/11 - the Oct. 1983 bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut, which killed 243 U.S. troops.

In November, an al-Qaida operative who was on the FBI's terrorist watch list was captured near the Mexican border, housed in a Texas jail and turned over to federal agents, according to Rep. John Culberson, R-Texas.

"A confirmed al-Qaida terrorist, an Iraqi national, was held in the Brewster County jail," Rep. Culberson told ABC Radio host Sean Hannity. "He was captured in Mexico. This was within the last six weeks. He was turned over to the FBI."

Anyone want to shut the borders NOW?

What? The Ring was broken up, but no one jailed the Soup Kitchen workers who fed the 'terrorists' who were snuck in by Hezbolla, like Hillary said would happen?! :shock:

People ask me how in the world I could have voted for Pat Buchanan in 2000. The answer is easy. The wall for the Mexican border was his idea, and was part of his platform. People said he was too radical, but history shows he was correct.

Most definitely there will be another attack on American soil, as sad as it is to say so or even think it. The question is will the next attacks be orchestrated with power we are not aware of or a last ditch effort by a crumbling terrorist group?

Better question would be why aren't the people we elected solving the problem? Guess the Hispanic vote trumps homeland security. (Not a slam against Hispanics, but against selfish political cowards).

Though I think certain items could be addressed that would help against another attack I do not believe it is something that could ever be stopped without a bit of luck on the defenders part.

I was talking specifically about the border problem. But you're right, there's no 100% protection overall from terrorism.
