KOLD News 13 out of Tucson, AZ has obtained an FBI urgent report outlining a possible terrorist attack in southern Arizona, naming specifically, Fort Huachuca in Sierra Vista.
The document gives no timetable or explanation of how the threat will be carried out. But does say, “a group of Iraqis may have entered the United States through tunnels from Mexico into Arizona,” and those same “Iraqis are believed to be the ones who will perpetrate the attack on Fort Huachuca.”Lt. Colonel Matthew Garner of the United States Army says, “The military is always a target, I believe.”For security purposes, Lt. Col. Garner wouldn’t tell us what’s been done or what’s being done to stop the threat. But he did say the U.S. Government takes this very seriously. And that Fort Huachuca is fully aware and prepared for anything that comes its way.
The report dates back to May, 2007 and Fort Huachuca hasn’t seen an attack yet, but that doesn’t mean they’re in the clear:
Lt. Col. Garner says, “We operate within that knowing that we are always a target, and then we take all precautions necessary whether it’s a general threat or a specific threat like the one you’re talking about.”According to the report which cites sources and sub sources within the DEA, the Iraqis may currently be located on an “unidentified Indian reservation” in Arizona. The Tohono O’odham nation is one possibility, with more than 2 and half million acres that start near Casa Grande and continue south all the way to the Mexico border. William Bevill says, “The fact that it’s somewhere closer to Tucson makes it more of a concern.
the report says, is an arsenal of weapons already in the United States.They include two Milan–surface to surface, anti-tank missiles; some Soviet made surface to air missiles; and an unspecified number of grenade launchers.
Tucson residents who were interviewed about the threat were clearly disturbed about the situation. One man said:
“I don’t know why we haven’t heard about it sooner, according to Gresham.””It’s pretty scary, our kids are here. This is where we live.”
A local moon-bat, with tin-foil hat firmly in place, offered a different opinion:
Ashleen O’Gaea says, “The administration has given us a lot of convenient information before which has proved to be less than accurate.” O’Gaea says, “Whether that be honest misunderstanding or deliberate deceit is up for debate.”
Of course, if we withheld questionable information and then something did happen, this same woman would be one of the first to cry foul.
Chimpy just can’t win with these people.
UPDATE (November 25):
It looks like the Washington Times has gotten around to covering this.
