Fox News: Claims Of Terrorists Crossing The Border

Jason Chaffetz makes “blanket assertions” about people crossing the border with “ties to known terrorist organizations in the Middle East.” Later Chaffetz states they are people with “known ties to a terrorist country” or “known ties from a Middle Eastern country.”

The segment gives no names, no specifics. Not that it’s impossible, but at least give names, dates, specifics, photographs, mug-shots, etc.

  1. When you have thousands of illegal immigrants crossing the border, is it so hard to believe that this could be true? When you have the Secretary of Defense come on TV in front of the U.N. and tell America, “Get ready, they’re coming soon,” it’s time to take notice. Sally Kohn said last week on CNN that according to her sources, “ISIS is not a threat to America.” Really? Does she have some private information she is privy to that the rest of us aren’t? Should we all feel relieved because Sally says we are all safe?

    Numerous intelligence officials (both active and retired) are saying that ISIS is already in Mexico. Are you going to doubt that because you are not being supplied with an aerial photo?

    When President Bush was told that Muslims were planning plane attacks on America, he ignored the warning. See what happened?

    ISIS has already posted plenty of threats on their site and are actively telling their supporters to carry out car bombings in America. What more evidence do you need?

    Sometimes specifics, names and date aren’t available or intelligence officials don’t want to give out that information. Not everyone is like Obama who likes to tip-off the enemy as to what his military strategy will be.

    People who ignore these warnings are the ones who scream the loudest when they come true.

    1. Thank you for your comment.

      These assertions are serious enough that people should have to back them up with names, dates, photographs or other standard information that police have on any any criminal or suspect.

      He says “four individuals who were apprehended at two different stations.” Names, dates? Mugshots? Photos? What terrorist organizations? I can see mugshots and names of criminals on the local news, but Chaffetz can’t produce any more information?

      He did list that 13 were from Syria, 6 from Iraq, 4 from Iran. There are wars going on there are hundreds of thousands of refugees. Were they refugees?

      I’m not saying this can’t happen, but after the missing WMDs, people shouldn’t just bite into this hook, line and sinker. It’s fear mongering – “elect me, I’ll protect you.” Politicians like to throw around these accusations. Usually they say these things on Fox News.

      Lindsey Graham made similar accusations here:

      I could not find the quote from Chuck Hagel.
