AS to your question...........
The news source they sighted was a reputable one, and there have been others put up on the thread that state the same thing.......
Its not our fault if you dont deem a news agency "credible" just because you dont want to believe it..........thats an issue of denial that you have to work out for yourself........
There is an ever-present threat of terrorist infiltration over the Southwest border. Data indicates that there are hundreds of illegal aliens apprehended entering the United States each year who are from countries known to support terrorism.
Members of Hezbollah have already entered the United States across the Southwest border.
Al-Qaida and other terrorist groups began infiltrating Mexico in the days after 9/11. By 2003, Canadian intelligence officials and Interpol told Mexican President Vincente Fox that al-Qaida had established several cells in Mexico to prepare for the next terrorist attacks
While alarming, this case is hardly unique but rather part of a growing trend among Islamic terrorists to slip into the U.S. through a notoriously vulnerable 2,000-mile stretch.
Additionally, the top Homeland Security official in Texas confirmed that indeed terrorists—with ties to Hezbollah, Hamas and Al Qaeda—have been arrested crossing into the state through the Mexican border.
Islamic terrorists are using the Southwest border as a gateway to the United States.
It also brings to light the increasing frequency with which "Other than Mexican" (OTM) persons from 35 "special interest" countries known by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to harbor Islamic terrorists are illegally entering the United States.
Evidence of Terrorist Ties
Far from basing their ties to terrorism on the OTMs' nation of origin alone, Border Patrol agents have, in many cases, found frightening physical evidence, according to the Committee's report.
"A jacket with patches from countries where al Qa'ida is known to operate was found in Jim Hogg County, Texas by the Border Patrol. The patches on the jacket show an Arabic military badge with one depicting an airplane flying over a building and heading towards a tower, and another showing an image of a lion's head with wings and a parachute emanating from the animal. The bottom of one patch read 'martyr,' 'way to eternal life' or 'way to immortality.'"
In February 2001, Mahmoud Kourani crossed the border from Tijuana in the trunk of a car, eventually settling in Dearborn, Michigan. Kourani, who federal prosecutors claimed had received training in weapons, intelligence, and spy craft in Iran, bribed a Mexican embassy official in Beirut to obtain a visa. Kourani’s brother is known to be Hezbollah’s security chief in southern Lebanon.

thanks. good job. It's nice when someone can back up their claims with actual evidence, not personal attacks, as the OP has done.
