    Mr. Paredes, I wouldn’t be so quick to dismiss the threat. I respect you and your work. There are plenty of people, though, willing to accuse you of the very same thing as you seem to be accusing Judicial Watch of. I think it’s best to take a cautious approach to the IS (ISIS, ISIL) threat both here and abroad.

    First no one said there were training camps. Prior reports indicated cooperation between the cartel and terrorists, which is quite common. Groups unite for many reason, money is usually a factor.

    Car bombs ? Why cross the border with car bombs, even the terrorists would know it is easier to assemble here than transport. Haven’t you read that the terrorist are planning bubonic plaque warfare? It doesn’t have to be a large scale attack.

    Now if security was reemphasized at FT Bliss and government agencies, doesn’t that give credibility to the reports ?

    Judicial Watch has been correct in the past, so now YOU decided that they release reports as fund raisers? The terrorists have taken to the media and made repeated threats, I suppose they are also doing a fund raiser.

    If you choose to minimize or ridicule the reports, that’s your choice. But, let the rest of us decide for ourselves. We choose to err on the side of caution. I’m sure you are one of those that insist there is no cartel related drug activity in the area, although it is identified by government sources as a transistor point. But then who knows, since the government has massive debt, the reports are only fund raisers.

    Go ahead keep your head buried in the sand, and enjoy the rear entry.

    Sorry to ruin your narrative, ostrich, but security hasn’t been increased at Fort Bliss or anywhere else in El Paso. The threat of ISIS doesn’t exist on the U.S.-Mexican border because the LAST people ISIS would get involved with is a bunch of Santa Muerte-believing, Guadalupe tattoo-wearing, drug-smuggling cartel types. Allah would not approve of any of that, so ISIS would sooner chop the cartel members’ heads off than go into cahoots with them.

    We have not forgotten our history. The Krongard brothers were strategically positioned at the CIA and the Department of State to help create the problem that would be later solved through a massive transfer of wealth from the American Taxpayer to certain interests close to the Administration. We shall always remember that the Embassy in Bagdad and that in Ciudad Juarez wee built at the same time and supervised by the same people at the Department of State (DOS).

    Back in those turbulent years, a “private” army of so called courageous loyal Americans offered to protect our county, they were the Minutemen. They were out to demonstrate that Mexicans were the enemy, and that a private army would be so much more efficient in stopping the enemy. Meantime, Blackwater was lobbing for a contract worth $60 BILLION Dollars to protect the Southern Border, our Border.

    At a particular point during the Iraq war, Turkey found American guns in the hands of criminals. Soon after, Iraqi customs found that the United States Embassy was abusing its diplomatic immunity by smuggling weapons into Iraq and selling them to the Insurgents. Soon after the Iraq conflict was over.

    Ironically, the United States Department of Justice refused to assist Mexico with the identification of the weapons ceased there by the authorities. No serial numbers were provided to Mexico. We believe that the same entity that provided weapons to the Iraqui insurgents also provided weapons to the criminals in Mexico. Their purpose, make a huge amount of money selling illegal weapons “stolen” from the US Government first, and then profiting from selling security services to the US and to foreign entities threatened by the same weapons they sold.

    It is also ironic that these rumors of terrorists come at a time when peace is finally coming to Ciudad Juarez.

    Sadly, not too long ago, our newly elected Freshman Congressman made possible that WE would pay part of the cost of Border Patrol agents posted at the POE to “make sure weapons do not go into Mexico”. The last time I went to visit my Dentist in Juarez I noticed that after I had to wait in line for 15 minutes, pay $3 US Dollars toll, maneuvering into a most dangerous and stupid traffic diversion (who knows what for) there were 8 Border Patrol and ICE Officers having a wonderful chat among themselves paying Zero attention to the traffic mess they created.

    Fishy, had to hold my nose when reading about the “no increase” in security. So when there are extra security people or military at the gates checking IDs and some access to FT Bliss is restricted to non-military, there’s no increase in security?

    Not a keeper, throw you back into the water !

    Yes, increased security at Ft. Bliss and it was before the September 11th anniversary.
