Cartels may be smuggling Hezbollah across border.
The Islamic nation’s terrorist surrogates may have already formed sleeper cells here in the United States. Rep. Sue Myrick, R-N.C., asserted in a radio interview today she believes it’s possible that Hezbollah, the radical terrorist organization tied to Iran, may be working with Mexican cartels to funnel not only drugs, but also terrorist sleeper agents into the U.S. There have been a couple of arrests in this country relative to people who have had ties to Hezbollah or Iran, and my concern has been with the drug cartels and the gangs that are operating in Mexico,” Myrick said. “There is, what I have been told, a very strong presence there of coordination between the two.”
“We do not know who is in this country, and I really believe because of what is happening, because of the growing presence of Iran, their influence in those areas – and it is a growing presence – that there is just an opportunity for them, with our weak border that we have, to come into our country.”
Myrick explained that she has been asking the Obama administration for years to expand its drug and border investigations to include activities of terrorists funneling through, “but there just hasn’t been any movement whatsoever to get this done.”
“A lot of people think the Iranian threat is thousands of miles away – it’s all about Israel, it’s all about the Middle East, it doesn’t affect the United States,” Klein said. “Yes it does! They could give nuclear capability to Hezbollah, and then we’re talking about suitcase nukes, EMP threat, who knows?”
DEA Administrator Michele M. Leonhart similarly told Fox News, “The dangerous connection between drug trafficking and terrorism cannot be overstated.”
