    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 borne improvised explosive devices (VBIED). High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch 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.

    Specifically, the government sources reveal that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is confirmed to now be operating in Juarez, a famously crime-infested narcotics hotbed situated across from El Paso, Texas. Violent crimes are so rampant in Juarez that the U.S. State Department has issued a number of travel warnings for anyone planning to go there. The last one was issued just a few days ago.

    Apparently the Federal Government along with Ft. Bliss has decided to join all the hype and make unfounded warnings for political reasons. :rolleyes:

    Of course as we have been told on this board none of this is going on, it is all hype, and we should just keep quiet because we do not live on the border.


    Well actually I do not live very far from the border.

    I am not saying that judicial watch is wrong. I don't know. I am in Texas, but pretty far from the border. But my question is, why don't they ever name their sources? Seems like they always put "high ranking official" or something of that nature. If they would be more specific about their source, they would gain more credibility.

    While I think it is a legitimate question, the practice in journalism when speaking to someone off the record is to do just that. Journalists do not have to name their sources even in a court room most of the time.


    I think that another good question is :Why would the source only want to speak off the record?"
