Is Hezbollah tunneling into San Diego?

U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick, citing unnamed former intelligence officials, says Hezbollah militants are helping drug cartels in their efforts to dig larger tunnels across the U.S.-Mexico border.

"For their expertise, Hezbollah could be receiving a cut of the drug money," Myrick says in a letter to Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano.

Myrick, a Charlotte Republican, has asked Napolitano to step up investigations of terrorists who might be operating on the border, Washington correspondent Barbara Barrett reports today. Myrick, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, wants Napolitano to convene a task force on the presence of Hezbollah in Mexico.

Homeland Security spokesman Matt Chandler said Tuesday in a prepared statement that the agency will respond directly to Myrick about her request.“At this time, DHS does not have any credible information on terrorist groups operating along the Southwest border,” he said.

In her letter, Myrick writes that former intelligence officials "have pointed to the terrain that makes up our border, especially in the San Diego border sector, as a reason why drug cartels have been partnering with Hezbollah. This terrain is very much like the areas around Israel's borders. As we well know, Hezbollah is extremely skilled in the construction of tunnels."

Why tunnel when they can drive?

Tunneling is more effective, because anytime they try to drive, 10 others jump in the van with them.

So, a girl named Sue knows more about this "problem" than DHS?

Putting Myrick on the "intelligence" committee...whose idea was that?

Seriously, rather than posting quips, spend a little time researching this issue. Be thankful that Sue Myrick is as involved in this issue as she is ... most others in the House and Senate are too politically correct to venture into this reality.

If AZ cops can ID spics from cameljocks they are needed to take back America once commie Bama and Biden are impeached and ousted after Nov even though Bush should have been impeached ousted and executed too since he allowed 20 mill spics in to "do jobs noone else would do" like building 10 million now foreclosed houses and the slackards who lied about their employment then couldnt make monthly house payments not to mention the zcon bankers who rigged up the derivatives.
