One of the biggest arguments for closing the swinging door that is stands for our southern border is the threat of terrorist elements infiltrating the US. Lot’s of speculation as to who what and where – at least until now.

Fort Huachuca is the Armed Forces largest intelligence-training center and is located a stone’s throw from the Arizona-Sonoran border. Such a facility would make a temping target for terrorists. We’ve already seen that jihadists are not afraid to contemplate attacking a US military facility (Fort Dix, NJ) so the report that follows is being taken very seriously by the military.

This time producing the necessary personnel and weapons is much easier to do because of the disaster we call border security in this is country.

Fort Huachuca, the nation’s largest intelligence-training center, changed security measures in May after being warned that Islamist terrorists, with the aid of Mexican drug cartels, were planning an attack on the facility.

Fort officials changed security measures after sources warned that possibly 60 Afghan and Iraqi terrorists were to be smuggled into the U.S. through underground tunnels with high-powered weapons to attack the Arizona Army base, according to multiple confidential law enforcement documents obtained by The Washington Times.

“A portion of the operatives were in the United States, with the remainder not yet in the United States,” according to one of the documents, … “The Afghanis and Iraqis shaved their beards so as not to appear to be Middle Easterners.”

According to the FBI advisory, each Middle Easterner paid Mexican drug lords $20,000 “or the equivalent in weapons” for the cartel’s assistance in smuggling them and their weapons through tunnels along the border into the U.S. The weapons would be sent through tunnels that supposedly ended in Arizona and New Mexico, but the Islamist terrorists would be smuggled through Laredo, Texas, and reclaim the weapons later.

A number of the Afghans and Iraqis are already in a safe house in Texas, the FBI advisory said.

And we’re not taking bomb belts and pistols. The weapons being smuggled across the border according to the report are very sophisticated.

According to the source who spoke with DEA intelligence agents, the weapons included two Milan anti-tank missiles, Soviet-made surface-to-air missiles, grenade launchers, long guns and handguns.

“FBI Comment: The surface-to-air missiles may in fact be RPGs,” the advisory stated, adding that the weapons stash in Mexico could include two or three more Milan missiles….Insurgents in Iraq reportedly have used a Milan missile in an attack on a British tank. Iraqi guerrillas also have shot down U.S. helicopters using RPGs, or rocket-propelled grenades.

The source, according to the DEA, is a member of Mexico’s Sinaloa drug cartel. So DEA cautioned the FBI that the information may be a plant to bring the US into a turf fight with the Sinaloa’s competition the Gulf Cartel.

Still, this report brings up again the need for the US to tighten down its border security. One of these days, the report will not only be true, but acted upon.
