Hezbollah Across The Border

Given the complete lack of will in Washington to close down America's borders this should come as no surprise-

FBI Director Robert Mueller said this week that his agency busted a smuggling ring organized by the terrorist group Hezbollah that had operatives cross the Mexican border to carry out possible terrorist attacks inside the U.S.

What's worrying is that this may only be one group of many- others could have succeeded when this cell failed. Especially when we consider that the US and Iran may shortly come to blows.

The Iranian government views the Islamic Jihad, the name of Hezbollah's terrorist organization, "as an extension of their state. . . . operational teams could be deployed without a long period of preparation," said Ambassador Henry A. Crumpton, the State Department's coordinator for counterterrorism.

Are they pre-positioning forces for just this possibility?
