Isis Camp Near El Paso, Tx is not New News

Today, Judicial Watch reported that it had confirmed that ISIS has a training camp just on the other side of the border from El Paso, TX:

ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas, according to Judicial Watch sources that include a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector.

While the news is important, it’s not new. Here’s a Fox News report from September, 2014 that seems to mention the same thing (information starts at 2:44).

Some are downplaying the reports today as old news – but it’s not the reporting of the camp that is key – it’s the fact that Judicial Watch found independent confirmation of the camp’s existence.

The report does vaguely detail a joint U.S. – Mexico operation on the camp:

During the course of a joint operation last week, Mexican Army and federal law enforcement officials discovered documents in Arabic and Urdu, as well as “plans” of Fort Bliss – the sprawling military installation that houses the US Army’s 1st Armored Division. Muslim prayer rugs were recovered with the documents during the operation.

The finding of items, but no talk of anyone being detained would seem to leave only two possibilities: either the ISIS folks were gone when the operation hit, or they’ve been dealt with in-secret by the governments of the United States and Mexico.

Rendition, catch-and-release or a missed opportunity?

Judicial Watch has also noted that the FBI put together some meetings to try and deal with the leak that broke the ISIS camp story. Some key folks seem to be missing:

A high-level intelligence source, who must remain anonymous for safety reasons, confirmed that the meeting was convened specifically to address a press strategy to deny Judicial Watch’s accurate reporting and identify who is providing information to JW. FBI supervisory personnel met with Mexican Army officers and Mexican Federal Police officials, according to JW’s intelligence source. The FBI liaison officers regularly assigned to Mexico were not present at the meeting and conspicuously absent were representatives from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). It’s not clear why DHS did not participate.

  1. Living in southern New Mexico, the security of the border is always an important issue except for our illustrious government and the Mexican government. Another myth that a terrorist training camp just across the border exposes is, that Mexico is a friend to the USA. The southern border should be closed, no ifs, ands, and buts. Also with the government we have today, the fact that government’s primary function is the security of it’s citizens has turn out to be a myth. Cowardice throughout our government has left our country in a perilous position. So keep your weapons in fine working order, you’re going to need them sooner rather than later.

  2. It’s not old news if it has not been reported, so I guess it’s news after all.

  3. I live off of I-20 about 5 hours from El Paso and for over a decade I have daily worked to get our border secured. Both State and Federal legislators have heard from me, over & over….I just don’t hear from them….The Bush Administration approved funding for a ‘fence’…we’re still waiting. Janet Napolitano provided ‘tech’ equipment such as…60 miles east of El Paso , where the water is ankle deep the legal crossing ‘gate’ is a 5 foot pole that monitors CARD SWIPES of individuals coming into USA…There is a camera with feed to the El Paso BP unit that monitors ‘legal’ or permitted entry. Entry 20 feet to either side is UNdetected .

    The Midland County Sheriff tells me that regularly over 30% in lock up are illegals & law enforcement is NOT ALLOWED to question the origin of anyone at the scene of an accident or traffic stop. In Wal-Mart you may have to ask several employees for assistance to find one that speaks English.

    F>A.I.R. reported in 2013 that summer jobs for students has declined an average of 10% annually due to uneducated & generally undocumented immigrants filling those positions. This year already Tenn, Ky,& Ga and I believe N>C. have reported that 60-80% of new jobs went to non-citizens ……2008 Utah discovered over 2000 social security number of minor children had been stolen….

    Texas jails and prisons regularly house large percentages of CRIMINAL TRESPASSERS. This includes about 7200 convicted sex offenders. (Obama/Johnson) released over 1000 of them in Texas alone this past fall. EACH DAY criminal trespassers commit OVER 120 (up from 45-55 in 2010) against legal citizens.

    I’m in a rural area a mile off of 1-20 and a block from hwy 158. Personally I have seen the trailer on the hill across from me fill and empty a U-Haul up to a dozen men and pick them back up in a few days. One semi dropped off 2 women with toddler. When I reported it, I was told “Sorry, unless they commit a crime we can’t even knock on the door”….

    Our Borders are like a pus ozzing sore that is like a snake slithering through American streets spreading it’s venom. That is or will soon be on your streets as well. Far too many are sitting on the sideline wringing their hands or simply ignoring the problem. People like me scream and yell….and wonder if anyone hears…or if anyone cares…We need more loud relentless voices. We need this to be a part of every conversation, we need every legislator to be hammered with emails, call and old fashioned letters. We need it NOW, tomorrow maybe too late.

    Washington is inviting ISIS and any other evil to your table and you are on the menu….

    Watch your six and keep your powder dry….
