Skip to comments.Terror alerts ripple south of U.S. border

The reported sighting of the suspected Al Qaeda operative in the Internet cafe was hard to verify. It was also hard to dismiss.
A witness said she saw Adnan el Shukrijumah, a Saudi native on the FBI (news - web sites)'s terrorist watch list, in the cafe in this Central American capital in May. A photo of Shukrijumah, whose name was linked to the recent terrorism alert in New York, also was identified by the cafe owner, who said the suspect and two companions spoke little Spanish.
This week, the FBI and U.S. consular officials along the Mexico border put out an alert asking people to be on the lookout for Shukrijumah trying to enter U.S. territory.
The possible sighting, which Honduran and U.S. authorities investigated, is one of several alerts and potential threats in recent months that have added to jitters about the possibility of a terrorist attack on the U.S. or its interests from beyond its porous southern border.

That guy is bad news. I hope they get a more recent sighting and that he is still south of the border.
Can anyone post a picture of Adnan el Shukrijumah? Is there a place on FR that posts terrorist's pictures? There should be - Jim Rob are you listening? Thanks.
I'm not a "one issue" voter, but this is my top issue, especially in the post 9/11 world we live in. We may not be able to stop everyone, but can't we make it a bit more of a challenge to cross our borders?
It's not just terrorists that we have to worry about (isn't that enough?!?!). Illegal immigration has adversly affected our work force and our schools and has increased the gang population and control of our prison system, as well as in our cities and small towns.
Notice to our public servants: Get some cajones and Stop This Madness!!!
I ain't buyin'.
I fear that many, many, many Americans will have to die before the government does anything about the border, and maybe not even then.
A lets get him bump.
Don't worry, these are just OTMs and we know that ZERO OTMs are sucessfull in border crashing....go back to the sports page.
Let's see... this terrorist was in Honduras in May..... May, June, July, August and we're just now starting to be on the look out for him? He's easily had time to come here, leave, come back, leave.... many times over.
If an "OTM" that came over the Mexican border engages in a terror attack, GWB has a lot of 'splaing to do... He has virtually ignored the border and immigration laws since he's been in office, until now with November so close...
Yet even as of Wednesday the border is just as open ---- here's a story where they were hauling bales of pot over the border --- only because they dumped them in some woman's lawn did they get discovered. This isn't some remote out-in-the-desert border area but right in town and it's nothing for these people to get over.
Officers were first alerted to one woman's home on McNutt Road, the woman called to say someone had left about a dozen bundles in her backyard The bundles turned out to have contained marijuana. Officers also hauled in more pot while investigating a suspicious activity on Anapra Road.
"Three men were carrying the pot on their persons, having come over from Juarez," said Ofc. Charles Anderson. "We found them loading up the car. But we got the driver -- Heriberto Hernando Torres. He had the keys to the car."
You're absolutely right. Our government no longer cares about American citizens. Let's face it, the more Americans killed and gotten out of the way means more room for illegal Mexicans. But you'd better believe the traitors in DC will be protected.
It's Ws achilles heel, not Iraq or the economy. I don't know why so few pols are willing to take it on. Perhaps because of the vociferous lib-dem bigots and PC crap and ACLU and liberal courts and traitorous pols and... and... oh; now I know why.
When we get hit again, and it's traced to the southern border, he'll be defeated in a landslide or impeached if he wins the election.
I'm 30 miles from the border in Las Cruces, and I'm armed and ready.
This could be any of a number of faculty members at Dartmouth College.
Yeah Asa, when we get "actionable intelligence" on "persons of interest" I'm sure Mr under Secretary's system will be able to pick him up were he to even DARE attempt to benetrate our fortress of Americanism.
