The More the Merrier!
Some of us have been harping on the border for quite some time. Maybe it’s because I’m an Army brat, or because I have two synapses to rub together, or maybe it’s because I live in a border state.
It doesn’t take an Einstein to state the obvious. I’m sure Colonel Allen West has been aware all along of the natural progression that occurs when enemies who share a common “enemy”, join forces, emboldening them both.
Earlier this week, according to Breitbart, Rep. Ted Poe (R-Tx), a member of the House Judiciary Committee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security, was asked if there is any current interaction between ISIS and Mexican drug cartels. He said “In my opinion, yes there seems to be a talking to each other”(1)
He added, “The drug cartels use the same operational plan as terrorist groups do … They kill their opponents, they behead their opponents, they brag about it and they have operational control of many portions of the southern border of the United States. They’re vicious as some of these other terrorist organizations.”
“We’ve had good intel over the years about al-Qaida, about their efforts to coordinate with, as an example, Mexican cartels…in an effort to try to exploit our southern border” he reported, adding that a terrorist group like ISIS “absolutely” knows about the lack of security on the border.”

Has the general public even though about this:
Former U.S. Attorney Joe DiGenova, who now represents one of the Benghazi whistleblowers, told a Washington radio station Monday that the real scandal in Benghazi is the theft of 400 surface-to-air missiles by some “very ugly people.”
In my opinion the downing of Flight 800 outside of New York under Clinton’s presidency was due to this type of missile and was covered up.
At risk of sounding coarse or vulgar, those who don’t want to see the truth, but prefer to hide their heads in the sand are much like an ostrich. They leave a part of their anatomy out in the open, with nary an eye to see what is coming.
