Are ISIS operatives in the US?

It has been long feared and rumored but now it is confirmed by various independent media and counter-terrorism experts, that ISIS operatives may have crossed the southern border of the U.S. and are now operating near Fort Bliss, Texas. The United States Army has even put the base on a heightened security alert. Retired Army Lieut. Gen. Jerry Boykin, former Delta Force commander stated, “This means they’re getting a threat stream. Fort Bliss had to have a clear and present threat.”

Military intelligence and counter-terrorism experts have confirmed that ISIS operatives are working with the drug cartels in Juarez, Mexico. These cartels are supplying the operatives with weapons and smuggling them across the porous U.S. border. There have been numerous reports of Korans and Muslim prayer rugs found at the border near river crossings. An obvious message to the United States that ISIS is here in the States. It is expected that terror attacks will include car bombings in high density areas where casualties would be high.

Intelligence experts have confirmed more than 2,000 Europeans and 100 Americans have joined the terrorist group ISIS in Syria. Because of this, there is also the very real threat that these recruits will also travel to America on commercial airlines. It would be much easier for them to pass through customs with an American or European passport. The U.S. Customs and Border Patrol office has confirmed that there has been an increase in a special designation category called aliens detained from “other than Mexico”  as well as a category called “special interest alien.”

Despite these facts, the Obama administration has not acknowledged the threat of ISIS operatives in the United States. The administration’s spokespersons all seem to say the same thing, that opponents of Obama are trying to heighten the  nation’s fears.
