US authorities have discovered, what they say is the largest and most sophisticated tunnel under their border with Mexico, one that was used by drug trafficking gangs.

The tunnel, lined with concrete and equipped with ventilation and lights, is one kilometer- (0.62 mile-) long, according to Mexican officials, but their US counterparts say it was only about 727 meters (2,400 feet).

The secret route is cut a staggering 26 meters (85.3 feet) below ground, directly under a heavily protected sector of the frontier and is much larger than the 21 others detected under the border since the September 11, 2001 terror attacks on US soil, US officials said.

Authorities found more than two tons of marijuana in the tunnel that US officials fear could also be used by people smugglers and even terrorists trying to circumvent the border.

"We're very concerned," said Unzueta. "When we find these tunnels, we see that as a vulnerability to our national security."

Well this news Certainly sheds a whole new Light upon the US-Mexican border problems. I am sure that there are people on US side of this Tunnel, who are also apart of this Operaton, and which are getting serious money out of it.

But here is few questions:

1. Who has Built this Tunnel? Was it ONLY the Mexicans?

2. Are there MORE Tunnels such as this one spread across the US-Mexican Border?

3. How much Drugs, People and other Stuff was Smuggled through this Tunnel?

4. Who is all a part of this Smuggling Operation?

Gee, No comments? Why is that? I thought peoepl would be shocked and amazed by this News, for you never know what ALL you can Smuggle inside United States without ANYBODY seeing you through this Tunnels.

OR is it a Tunnel Network?

Really?

Well, what does that mean?

That eveybody knew, but nobody did something about it?

Why all the Minuteman Patrols on the Land then, when the Majority of the Smuggling gets done under ground?

Weird...
