Skip to comments.FBI's Mueller: Hezbollah Busted in Mexican Smuggling Operation (2006)
Posted on 05/31/2007 7:08:43 PM PDT by SeafoodGumbo
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.
"This was an occasion in which Hezbollah operatives were assisting others with some association with Hezbollah in coming to the United States, Mueller told a House Appropriations subcommittee during a Tuesday hearing on the FBI's budget.
In a stunning revelation, Mueller admitted that Hezbollah had succeeded in smuggling some of its operatives across the border, telling the House committee:
"That was an organization that we dismantled and identified those persons who had been smuggled in. And they have been addressed as well.
Hezbollah was responsible for the single most deadly terrorist attack against the U.S. before 9/11 - the Oct. 1983 bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut, which killed 243 U.S. troops.
In November, an al-Qaida operative who was on the FBI's terrorist watch list was captured near the Mexican border, housed in a Texas jail and turned over to federal agents, according to Rep. John Culberson, R-Texas.
"A confirmed al-Qaida terrorist, an Iraqi national, was held in the Brewster County jail," Rep. Culberson told ABC Radio host Sean Hannity. "He was captured in Mexico. This was within the last six weeks. He was turned over to the FBI."
He said it this week but when did they stop it it.
I DO NOT for one second believe that Bush, Chertoff and many others who are actively working to liquidate America as we have known it didn’t know this immediately.....
Houston, we have a problem.....a big one!
Give em amnesty!
He’s just racist.
“This was an occasion in which Hezbollah operatives were assisting others with some association with Hezbollah in coming to the United States,
Yes, it is a good thing our borders remain wide open, so these good folks would not have to labor too hard to get into the USA....we would not want to keep good terrorists out of our country, now would we??
Hold the press, this wasn’t supposed to come out till
after the Amnesty Bill was passed, then
the reporters are going to tell
everyone how stupid they are to have let illegal immigrants
have free reign in the USA.
Another “duh” moment from the administration.
This is only stunning to anyone who is totally deaf, dumb, and blind with regard to the situation on our Southern border. My only questions is how many such operations are we failing to detect. But then again, I'm surprised its not OK with the Feds since these guys are only coming in to do jobs that Americans just won't do--such as suicide bombing. In fact, I'm amazed the Border Patrol agent that uncovered this didn't get prosecuted--but I'm sure an indictment is forthcoming!
Finally, people are paying attention.

HOW TERRORISTS HAVE INFILTRATED AMERICA
These are just terrorists doing the terror operations that Americans refuse to do!! /s
THIS will mean the death of the Republican party. So much for the fantasy about Republicans being the protectors of America.
Good job Mr. president! Senator Kyl, Graham, Martinez and all the other RINOS who helped shape this abomination of an amnesty bill.
And just think. These Hizb'Allah terrorists would be covered by the amnesty as well, and thus undeportable under the new rules.
"Reform" bill say illegals, don't say mexicans.
Thanks for the ping, Calpernia.
Even this thread shows connections.

There are even excerpts in the Venona files showing a communist cell in Mexico.

Thank you Calpernia.
Yep, and don’t forget Shukrijumah’s connections to MS-13 as well.
This should be no surprise. The border region of Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil are crawling with jihadists fresh from the Middle East.
