Is There Really an ISIS Camp Miles Away From El Paso, Texas? Mexico Border a Terrorist Haven?

It’s not new news that many in high-ranking positions of our government have already expressed concerns that the United States of America’s overly-porous border with Mexico could make it really easy for terrorists to enter the country. Late last year, Rick Perry actually came out and said to the press that he believes that ISIS is already in the U.S. and could be moving terrorists into welcome to usAmerica regularly. That was one of the first times that anyone really acknowledged it publicly, although many of us that have a little common sense had already came to that conclusion. Of course, there were political reasons for throwing up the red flag about the border. Perry and many others were trying to pressure President Barack Obama and Congress to take aggressive actions to control the border at the time, so throwing some terrorism fear on the whole situation was probably just another fine tactic to lean on the Prez, but regardless, the threat is real, and there is little reason to think that it hasn’t already been used to the enemy’s advantage.
Having said all of that, most people believe that this is a future threat. They believe that it could be a situation like 9/11, where terrorists cross the border and infiltrate our society, waiting for the right moment. Sleeper cells and the like. Few people believed that an organization like ISIS could actually be operating in Mexico just miles from American cities. Well, the folks at Judicial Watch have released information to social media that indicates an actual ISIS camp is just across the border in Mexico, just miles away from El Paso.
As you might imagine, the story caught fire quickly on social media. Common Sense Conspiracy has been analyzing this troubling information, and we want to present a few points about it for our readers. For starters, we always advocate considering the source. Now, the mainstream media has not reported on this story at all. When we say at all, we mean they have neither reported that it is true or made any attempt to discredit it. That in and of itself doesn’t mean much. The mainstream media wouldn’t report this story if it were true anyhow. However, sites like The Blaze and Judicial Watch are notorious extreme right wing websites. They frequently criticize liberals and especially President Obama’s handling of near about anything, and they often use scare tactics such as this to make points and get more visitors with very little respect for what is factual and what is not. Therefore, you can’t really trust these sources, and in a way, they use the fact that their followers want to hear this to help it spread. Then, from there, you have this story passing across Facebook and Twitter feeds literally all over the world, and pretty soon no one is sure if it is true or not.
The reality: unless you want to take a quick trip down south of the border around El Paso and see for yourself, there is just not enough reliable information to confirm this story. Is it possible? You bet. Is it likely? As inept as President Barack Obama has proven to be at many things over the last several years, it is still hard to believe that the United States would allow a known ISIS terrorist camp to be thriving miles from the border. It also stands to reason that the government would know a heck of a lot more about it than Judicial Watch does. If it is there and we ever can factually prove that, then this would be the greatest evidence that a false flag terrorist attack operation is being planned by our government. However, finding factual proof will continue to be the problem, unless someone has a real smoking gun.
