Three online reports warn of ISIS involvement south of the border - U.S. officials deny credible threat

While it's nightmarishly plausible - and there have been warnings from the international community to the United States as such, the Department of Homeland Security has denied claims on from a watchdog group that the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) has militants stationed in Juarez, Mexico.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The White House has denied any knowledge of an "imminent" attack by IS against the U.S.

A DHS spokesman told British journalists that "we are aware of absolutely nothing credible to substantiate this claim" made by Judicial Watch, a center-right group. "In Mexico?" the official said. "I haven't seen that at all."

ISIS, a fearsome and deadly terror group that dominates much of Iraq and Syria, now includes some militants with passports from the US and other Western nations, a fact that worries American intelligence agencies.


Shortly before Judicial Watch's report surfaced, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said publicly that his agency and the FBI "are unaware of any specific, credible threat to the U.S. homeland" from IS.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest declared flatly that "the most detailed intelligence assessment that I can offer from here is that there is no evidence or indication right now that [ISIS] is actively plotting to attack the United States homeland. That's true right now."

The crime-ridden Mexican border town opposite El Paso, Texas has become a staging ground for illegal immigrants - including drug cartel members and narcotics smugglers - to enter the U.S. illegally.


Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton in the meantime says that his sources were "golden'" and called the government's insistence "so dishonest . It's a non-denial denial"' he says.

Fitton said, "You could drive a truck bomb through that loophole. DHS has not denied our story."

Judicial Watch claims that ISIS terrorists are "planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born [sic] improvised explosive devices."

The group said a "warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack" had been issued to "agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies," instructing them "to aggressively work all possible leads and sources" to prevent it.

Judicial Watch claimed the commander of Fort Bliss, an Army base in Texas, has been briefed on the situation.


Judicial Watch also claims the commander of Fort Bliss, a U.S. Army base near the Juarez border crossing, has been briefed on the threat.
 
"This is dire," Fitton said. "Look, this needs to be - It's impossible for me to overstate the seriousness of the threat.

"The president calls ISIS a Jayvee terror organization, and now we have a report they're in Juarez, planning attacks with al-Qaeda."

There is widespread unease . The anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks is approaching in less than two weeks.
