The Jihad Threat on the Southern U.S. Border

The web site Policeone.com has a good article on a subject that has come up from time to time but has not received enough attention: Jihadist terrorists operating along America’s border with Mexico.

This is an issue that has been known to US policymakers and officials for several years now. Back in 2006, in testimony before the US Congress, the director of the FBI acknowledged a Hezbollah presence on the southern border:

More recently, Congresswoman Sue Myrick, head of the Counterterrorism Caucus, detailed in the Washington Times about a case currently before a federal court in New York involving a Hezbollah cell in Mexico:

The PoliceOne article, by Doug Wyllie, goes into great detail, especially on the tactical level, about the threat from Jihad on America’s vulnerable southern border (pay especially close attention to the video on the PoliceOne page):
