Did Al-Qaida Terrorists Cross US-Mexico Border?
At a press conference today, Rep. Sue Myrick (R-N.C.) disclosed that three al-Qaida members were arrested on the US-Mexico border recently.
"Our main concern is, who's in our state? I mean this is a critical issue today. I mean they just arrested down on the border, what a couple of weeks ago, three al Qaeda members who came across from Mexico into the United States. I mean that's a given fact. They were holding them in the jail down there."
Hugh Hewitt, on his radio show and blog, has raised the question of whether this is "a blockbuster story, or a complete urban myth."
I have contacted Rep. Myrick by e-mail asking if the story is true and for more info:
"A t the True ID press conference today (11/9/05) Rep. Myrick said, "...three al Qaeda members who came across from Mexico into the United States. I mean that's a given fact. They were holding them in the jail down there."
What is the source of this information?
If it's a "given fact" and available for dissemination at a press conference, what are the specifics of the case?
Who are the 3 al-Qaida suspects?
Where are they being held?
Where, when, and how did they cross the border?
How were they discovered and captured?
Who made the arrests?
What is the government doing to ascertain their purpose in the US?
Are there any more known suspects in the US?
I write a blog Further Adventures of Indigo Red (http://furtheradventuresofindigored.blogspot.com). I am posting the press conference comments and would appreciate any clarification.
