ISIL plans an attack on US from Juarez Mexico?

Washington Times:
The federal government believes a terrorist attack at the U.S.-Mexico border is imminent and has put out a bulletin on the matter, a government watchdog group reported Friday.

Judicial Watch released a statement that said Islamic terrorist groups who have infiltrated the city of Ciudad Juarez aim to use car bombs to attack American interests.

“High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued,” the statement read. “Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat.”

High-level sources in the intelligence community told the nonprofit organization that one of the terrorist groups operating out of Ciudad Juarez is the Islamic State, which beheaded American photojournalist James Foley earlier this month. The radical Sunnis, led by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, also control large swathes of Iraq and Syria.

Juarez is across from El Paso, Texas and has been a cartel battleground over distribution corridors like Interstate 10.  There is an army base near El Paso that could also be a target for the Islamic religious bigots.  Getting a vehicle borne explosive device through customs would be a challenge.

Fox News has more on the threat at the Texas border.  Gov. Perry has been warning of an ISIL threat at the border.
