Your government failed you. Those entrusted with protecting you failed you. And I failed you.—Richard Clark, Clinton and Bush Counter-terrorism Advisor, before the 911 CommissionRichard Clark’s plaintive wail before the 911 commission was only a partial admission of guilt for the role that he played over two presidential administrations and his personal failure to help protect the American people from Islamic terrorism on 9/11/2001.
Pro Bush advocates have proudly proclaimed that there hasn’t been another terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11 well there has been now!
Years of un-enforced borders has manifested in the unthinkable. Just as prior to 9/11 no one would have thought terrorist would hijack planes and commit acts of terrorism on American soil, but we should have learned a lesson from our mistakes right?
Wrong! Though the American people have pleaded with the Bush administration and a Democrat Controlled U.S. Congress to enforce the border between Mexico and the United States by wall, fence and/or increased government patrol the American people’s pleads largely have fallen on deaf ears.
This blatant disregard for border security from our government has resulted in a small group of 8 Mexican terrorists crossing over into the United States over the Phoenix Arizona border and assaulting a home with a 50 to 100 round assault rifle attack and killing the resident either on Sunday June 22, 2008 or on Monday June 23, 2008 as reported by Phoenix police. (see here)
This is an outrage. The first terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11 and it is not being reported by the media? Check your sources you would not have known about this incident if you would not have read about it here! (See story)
This Mexican militia or military attack was planned to be a home invasion and murder and it was.
Need I say it again? A Mexican terrorist militia illegally crossed over into America invaded a home and killed an occupant after 50 to 100 assault rifle rounds were spent and no one is up in arms about it?
Allow me to speculate why, first this is an election year and it involves one of the presidential nominee’s home state. Second this nominee has been a proponent of illegal entry into the United States and open borders. And third this story totally destroys the media’s narrative of the poor illegal crossing to make a better life causing no harm to the mean old Americans who would construct a fence to keep him or her out.
Four of the Mexican terrorists were able to elude police officers and sneak back across the border and four were captured.
Information from one of the suspects on McDowell indicated all the suspects are Mexican Military coming into the United States with full tactical gear and police raid shirts to conduct home invasions. According to the same suspect, they were planning on ambushing the officers following them but, didn’t only because they didn’t have any ammunition left.In addition, some of these terrorist where captured when their ammunition gave out but they claimed that their mission included killing police officers that interfered with their plans.

After this story broke there were those who attempt to play it down as a drug related incident between feuding drug cartels that hire some of the Mexican military to do their bidding. That would indicate that the South American drug war has spilled across the border into the United States. update listen here 2:16mins
Even if this is true that doesn’t lessen the danger to Americans, that only increases it! Because Mexican drug cartels are in fact killing all who oppose them in Mexico, they have no fear of government officials or the police.
This is the first terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11 and because it may affect the outcome of the 2008 election the media isn’t covering it and you would not have heard of it if you did not read it here! See police interoffice memos here and here.
This is but another example, in Richard Clark’s words, that our government has failed us.
Countries have gone to war over lesser offenses! Ironically in this case it would be over no fences.
