Re: FEDS Issue Warning About “imminent Terrorist Attack” on United States

thanks, however.... from the source you just linked here:

Quote:
The three-page bulletin, entitled “ISIS Interest on the US Southwest Border” and dated Aug. 28 was released to law enforcement on Thursday.

It notes no known credible homeland threats or specific homeland attack plot has been identified. That assertion was underscored by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, who said Friday that DHS and the FBI are "unaware of any specific, credible threat to the U.S. homeland" from Islamic State.
the article then goes on to say:

Quote:
Despite assurances that no threat to American soil is imminent, the watchdog group Judicial Watch said Friday that Islamic State operatives are in Juarez, just across the border from Texas, and are planning to attack the United States with car bombs.
so, the feds didnt say there is an imminent attack at all. they said the opposite. a conservative watchdog group said there was an 'imminent threat'

Quote:
High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued. Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat.
(source)

...however, this group, in their new release, fails to cite any credible sources, uses only anonymous sources and fails to provide any proof of the 'bulletin' they claim was given. so, there's no real reason to believe that this supposed threat is anything other than propaganda since it is based on no real evidence and contradicts what the feds actual said.

Judicial Watch also gives itself away by adding:

Quote:
These new revelations are bound to impact the current debate about the border crisis and immigration policy.
... at the end, indicating the intent of the entire piece.

Imminent Terrorist Attack Warning By Feds on US Border

AUGUST 29, 2014
Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born improvised explosive devices (VBIED). High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued. Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat.

Specifically, Judicial Watch sources reveal that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is confirmed to now be operating in Juarez, a famously crime-infested narcotics hotbed situated across from El Paso, Texas. Violent crimes are so rampant in Juarez that the U.S. State Department has issued a number of travel warnings for anyone planning to go there. The last one was issued just a few days ago.

Intelligence officials have picked up radio talk and chatter indicating that the terrorist groups are going to “carry out an attack on the border,” according to one JW source. “It’s coming very soon,” according to this high-level source, who clearly identified the groups planning the plots as “ISIS and Al Qaeda.” An attack is so imminent that the commanding general at Ft. Bliss, the U.S. Army post in El Paso, is being briefed, another source confirms. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) did not respond to multiple inquiries from Judicial Watch, both telephonic and in writing, about this information.

The disturbing inside intelligence comes on the heels of news reports revealing that U.S. intelligence has picked up increased chatter among Islamist terror networks approaching the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. While these terrorists reportedly plan their attack just outside the U.S., President Obama admits that “we don’t have a strategy yet” to combat ISIS. “I don’t want to put the cart before the horse,” the commander-in-chief said this week during a White House press briefing. “I think what I’ve seen in some of the news reports suggest that folks are getting a little further ahead of what we’re at than what we currently are.”

The administration has also covered up, or at the very least downplayed, a serious epidemic of crime along the Mexican border even as heavily armed drug cartels have taken over portions of the region. Judicial Watch has reported that the U.S. Border Patrol actually ordered officers to avoid the most crime-infested stretches because they’re “too dangerous” and patrolling them could result in an “international incident” of cross border shooting. In the meantime, who could forget the famous words of Obama’s first Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Napolitano; the southern border is “as secure as it has ever been.”

These new revelations are bound to impact the current debate about the border crisis and immigration policy.
you posted the Judicial Watch article and a Washington Post article talking about the Judicial Watch article (and citing Judicial Watch as it's only source) but no actual proof of a credible threat.

Re: FEDS Issue Warning About “imminent Terrorist Attack” on United States

US Department of Homeland Security(WASHINGTON) -- The Department of Homeland Security issued a statement on Friday in regards to the decision made by the government of the United Kingdom to raise that country's domestic terror threat level to "severe."Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said in the statement that the U.S. government has not received any "specific, credible threat to the U.S. homeland." Still, Johnson noted, militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria have shown the intent and capability to capture American citizens overseas, making them an "active and serious threat."Johnson points out the action that the DHS has taken in recent weeks, including enhanced security at overseas airports and increased tracking of foreign fighters traveling to and from Syria. "Additional security measures" are also under consideration, he said.Johnson expressed deep concern about the ongoing situation in both Iraq and Syria, saying that the DHS will "continue to evaluate and adopt serious and prudent homeland security measures as the situation warrants." Earlier on Friday, the FBI noted that the United Kingdom's decision was not based on a specific threat. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest echoed that sentiment, saying that he didn't "anticipate at this point that there is a plan to change" the U.S. terror threat level.

Re: FEDS Issue Warning About “imminent Terrorist Attack” on United States

Just trying to post what I could find regarding the thread title. I have never considered faux-news as credible. Should have known that unless one of the major news agencies is reporting it, that it is 99% likely spin or fear pandering. Thanks for the correction

Not to worry. Barack Hussein Obama will be working on a strategy as soon as he gets back from his latest fundraiser.
The thing is, our level won't be raised. They could be pounding on the doors of the White House and Obummer would be too busy golfing and fund raising to care. He needs to take lessons from the UK and *gasp* even Putin. At least Putin (as horrible as he is) gets shit done...while still managing to pose shirtless on a horse.

THIS is perfect

Re: FEDS Issue Warning About “imminent Terrorist Attack” on United States

Of course the federal government is not going to publicly say a attack is imminent. As of right now this administration is trying to downplay every threat.
I know America is the best in the world at smoking these attacks out. But our enemies have learned much about how we gather information. And they have learned they cannot trust anyone. So a imminent attack on America may very well be.
But because of the midterm elections, and our President downsizing our military. A long with him pulling out of Iraq against the advisement of many. He is very reluctant to admit he was wrong. During his campaign he boosted about how he ended the Iraq war. And how terrorists were on the run. That we destroyed so much of their infrastructure and command and control.
Weather you agree with the Iraq war or not. It was Obama's job to finish the mission. When all he cared about was ending it before his reelection campaign. And now he is in a very difficult position having pulled out of Iraq. And now facing going right back.
So I don't put much faith in our government giving us a warning. That would be like Obama admitting he is a failure. He sold himself as the man who was going to stop America's provocative policies that make us enemies. Remember all the apologies for America's arrogance, and exceptionalism. The fact that America is being threatened to be attacked because of Obama's policies is a slap to his face.
