Terrorists Pose as Immigrants

Islamic extremists fluent in Spanish are entering the United States posing as Hispanic nationals, according to a Drug Enforcement Administration (dea) report. Mexican drug cartels have formed partnerships with terror networks, multiplying the danger posed by illegal immigration.

report says 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 report also warns that “the dea runs the risk of failing to detect or report the entry of terrorists, weapons of mass destruction or portable conventional weapons into the Unites States,” according to the Washington Times.

A law enforcement report from El Paso, Tex., said there are “approximately 20 Arab persons a week utilizing the Travis County Court in Austin to change their names and driver’s licenses from Arabic to Hispanic surnames.”

The Washington Times also obtained a Department of Homeland Security intelligence report that shows “nearly every part of the Border Patrol’s national strategy is failing.” Al Qaeda is actively trying to smuggle its operatives into the U.S. through the porous Mexican border, the report added.

The writing has been on the wall for some time: In 2005, reports warned that illegal immigrants were working in sensitive areas including nuclear facilities, and there has been a well-documented increase in violent Mexican gang activity in the United States. Last year, theTrumpet.com showed there are many routes available to terrorists who wish to enter the U.S.

As the United States fails to win the war on drugs, falls back in the war on terror, and allows the severity of the illegal immigration problem to mushroom, it becomes clear that the curses outlined in Deuteronomy 28:15-68—particularly that of strangers rising up and overwhelming the people—is already in the process of being fulfilled.

Officers Quitting British Intelligence

Britain’s Intelligence Corps has lost one fifth of its officers in the past three years. A large number of upper-level staff members has exited the service in favor of more lucrative positions in the private sector.

The Ministry of Defense said it was facing challenges in its military intelligence staffing. This is a troubling development, since the apparent threat of more terrorist attacks looms ever larger.

The Daily Mail reported that senior officers within the intelligence service were worried that the loss of so many officers is putting under-trained and under-experienced people in jobs for which they are not qualified.

“To sustain what the Intelligence Corps is doing, losing 20 percent of officers is pretty hard,” a
Daily Mail source said. “To some extent they can no longer fill posts that they wish to because they just don’t have enough people; they have to give the jobs to non-specialists.”

A defense spokesman told the Daily Telegraph, “We face challenges in recruiting and retention in specific areas in all the services, not just the army and not just the Intelligence Corps. We are trying hard to resolve them.”

“There are circumstances where some officers may substitute for senior officers,” the
spokesman admitted. “This is done on a case by case basis.”

Threats to Britain are tracking through the middle of a steeply climbing curve. Presently, Islamic terrorism, which has already blasted
London, appears to be the biggest threat to the island nation. However, a unified Europe, soon to be a military powerhouse, may soon prove to be an even greater threat. Whether or not the intelligence service itself is the lynchpin of British defense, a severely understaffed Intelligence Corps and army make the nation much less able to defend itself when the attack comes.
