Many U.S. officials fear the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria is planning to attack the United States by crossing the porous southern border with Mexico. Texas Gov. Rick Perry has already warned that the militants probably are lying in wait in some U.S. border towns. Mexico dismisses the talk as “absurd,” but it does so little to police its own border that three Ukrainians with long criminal records easily walked into Texas recently.

Beheading of Journalist Spurs Western Action Against ISIS
August 21, 2014

SITUATION REPORT


The cold-blooded decapitation of an American reporter by a jihadist with a British accent has galvanized the West this week into increasing support in the fight against the terrorist army of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

by Jeremy Bradshaw

A British government report on the Muslim Brotherhood has been delayed because of fears of upsetting Britain’s Gulf allies, which are pressing Britain to outlaw the group.
