A South African woman, Farida Goolam Mohamed Ahmed, was picked up at the McAllen Miller International Airport on July 19, headed to New York. Authorities believe she is a high-level Al Qaeda operative.
Government sources tell FederalNewsRadio.com that capturing this woman could be comparable to the arrest of Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the alleged mastermind of 9/11. It was revealed in court Tuesday that she was on a watch list and had entered the U.S. possibly as many as 250 times.
Gadzooks, man. Our borders are so porous that it takes 250 crossings before we finally catch them? What’s frustrating is that the instant we propose any method of tightening the border, Mexican officials will complain.
We need to get our priorities in order. Stopping Al Qaeda is first, making Mexico happy with the border is second.
