While our politicians vie for the power not to protect our nation, the debacle at our borders continues unabated. By way of the Daily Bulletin comes this little piece that should keep us all from sleeping soundly tonight.
On September 5th, near Mexico, the Border Patrol apprehended a man calling himself Miguel Alfonso Salinas along with three other illegals. Nothing unusual until you find out that Salinas lied about who he was, where he came from and what he was doing. You see, Miguel Alfonso Salinas was actually Ayman Sulmane Kamal, an Egyptian Muslim.
This is not an isolated incident. According to the Border Patrol, in 2005 they apprehended approximately 1.2 million people in the U.S. illegally. That detail is staggering enough, but 165,000 were from countries other than Mexico, and roughly 650 were, from countries of "special interest", like Egypt.
The article also states, that DEA intelligence reports, the link between terrorism and narcotics has been well known since the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. Yet, getting our politicians to address the danger is impossible because most of them won't even acknowledge what is happening along the U.S. border. The intrusions on American soil by the Mexican military is a perfect example.
Inept and ill-informed idiots, like Silvestre Reyes (D-El Paso) head of the House Intelligence Committee, refuse to confront the issues or even allow themselves to become educated as to the dangers to America.
Read the entire article and if you are not deeply troubled and concerned, then you are part of America's problem.
