More Americans abducted along Mexico border than in Iraq
LAREDO, Texas This border area is one of the least publicized international crisis zones. More Americans have been kidnapped just in this area than in all of Iraq by Islamic terrorists.
Twenty-six Americans are now officially listed as missing in the Laredo-Nuevo Laredo region of the U.S.-Mexico borderin addition to the more than 400 Mexicans reported to be suffering a similar fate.
The number of American civilians missing or kidnapped in Iraq since the beginning of the war is 23 as of last September, the latest figure released by the State Department.
And then there are the executions.
Unlike Muslim jihadists, enforcers from the feuding Gulf and Sinaloa Mexican drug cartels favor off-camera basement executions and oil-drum burials.
Ive seen these barrels with bodies stuffed into them, said a U.S. law enforcement official, who, like most here, spoke on condition of anonymity. Its horrible, but it is really happening.
First acid is poured in to break up flesh and bone. Then the drum is filled with diesel fuel.
A matchthats all it takes to turn a life into a heap of ashes.
How many of those unaccounted for have already been processed this way? Nobody here knowsor is eager to find out.
The Mexican government has lost control along the border, fumes Rick Flores, the youthful Webb County sheriff.
They had 176 murders in Nuevo Laredo last year, and none of them have been solved. In the first less than six weeks of this year, there were another 27 murders. Again, none solved. At the rate they are going, the death toll will be over 300 by years end.

Law enforcement officials dont believe the gunmen were the much-publicized Los Zetas, members of a U.S.-trained Mexican special forces unit, who deserted in the 1990s to become enforcers for the Gulf Cartel.
We're still fighting in Iraq.
We surrendered to Mexico.
The Fereral government and big business has surrendered. Not the People.
More from article:
And there have been other new arrivals that officials say worry them even more.
Mexico has long had a thriving Middle Eastern community, but there is word it might now be getting new, possibly less benevolent members.
Weve had source intelligence that there are possible terrorist cells making their way into Mexico, who want to learn the language and culture and camouflage themselves as Mexicans, said another law enforcement official, who requested anonymity.
There have been new arrivals of that kind in Nuevo Laredo as well, and we dont know yet whether their business is legitimate.
Did you mispell feral government? ;)
Hey, they won't stand up to Mexico, but they're getting ready for us. They just rehabilitated Jackboot John Magaw and put him in Homeland Insecurity.
Now, who do you suppose they expect him to burn alive in their homes?
ping, for lack of clean words at this time
My gosh!! When are Americans going to get their heads out of their [bleeps] and realize with a demoncratic president these border problems will disappear faster than you can say "Presto-Chango!"
A puzzling incursion, local officials said, was witnessed in the middle of the night 20 miles south of Laredo about a year ago.
About 20 physically well-trained men, all dressed in black with automatic rifles slung over their shoulders, crossed the Rio Grande and headed into the U.S., carrying oversized duffel bags.
They were intercepted by the Border Patrol further down. But to this day, we dont know what was in these bags, one of the officials said. Whatever the cargo, these men appeared to be ready to pick up a major fight to protect it. And thats very unusual for a drug smuggling operation.
A request for information left with the Border Patrol still remains unanswered.
Does "intercepted" equal "arrested"? Does any gov't agency possess the bags?
Build the wall, dot the landscape south of it with Land mines, use drones, Border patrol personnel & the national guard to patrol it and shoot to kill anything that tries to come across it. NOW!!!!
They also left out that......more Americans have been murdered, raped, etc., IN the U.S. by illegal aliens than in all of Iraq also.
That's about all they'd have to do a few times, including some night time ones, and word would spread like wildfire.
You are in serious need of increasing the dosage of your medication.
LOL! Then YOU will be increasing the dosage of YOUR medication. :-)
I imagine that those along the Iraqi border, are probably in groups and much better armed, than those on the Mexican border.
Los dos Laredos Ping!
Please FReepmail me if you want on or off this South Texas/Mexico ping list.
President Bush has been great on most things except for our border.
He has been great on the war on terrorists.
But on the border he is a gross failure.
He acted fast and correct on the 3,000+ people murdered at the world trade center.
He ignores the many rapes, murders and robberies which might be larger than the murders and money loss at the world trade center.
More people are abducted on the border of Mexico than in Iraq!
Start building the fence.
It should be made a felony for Criminals who overstay their visas and Invaders.
I believe we should give amnesty to these poor CRIMINALS or INVADERS.
This should be a 2 week amnesty to get the heck out of our Country.
The ones who ignore this amnesty should be buried in a tent city jail and fined $10,000 or buried elsewhere.
All aiders and abettors of these CRIMINALS or INVADERS should get 1 year in a tent city jail and a $10,000 fine for each CRIMINAL aided.
Those in government should be the first ones charged.
May these girls rest in peace. Worse, these are Texas Mexican Americans that most likely don't speak a word of spanish. Spanglish is the best they can do, if that.
Brenda Cisneros, 23, abducted in September of 2004
The one US agent that does this can "prolly" write a book about it after he gets in trouble with Pres. Bush. He can "prolly" come out on the O'Reilly Factor.
