    Partly built cross-border tunnel found in San Diego

    SAN DIEGO, California (AP) -- An incomplete tunnel was found in the same area where investigators recently found one of the longest passages discovered beneath the U.S.-Mexico border, officials said.

    The 3-foot-wide tunnel extended from just south of the border fence in Mexico to a point about 23 feet into the United States, ending at a concrete levee, Border Patrol spokesman Richard Kite said.

    A patrol agent noticed a distortion in the road running along the border fence, and agents digging in the area found the tunnel Thursday, Kite said.

    "It was only about six inches below the asphalt," he said.

    We'll never win this war if we don't close our borders; there is just no urgency to this problem, except in isolated pockets inside the Beltway. I think it might take another 9-11, facilitated by these tunnels, to wake us up. By then, of course, it will be too late.

    One of my nightmare scenarios is the explosion of a dirty bomb in the middle of the heartland. The actual and perceived contamination of farmland would result in an instant devaluation of farmland, instant depopulation of the same (who wants to live on radioactive farms or in towns?), consumer rejection of U.S. agricultural products, and a food shortage worldwide. Agriculture is the foundation of civilization; a strike on agriculture would be a direct attack on civilization itself.

    These tunnels need to be found and shut down!
