Now, comes word that federal agents are being targeted for kidnap/murder plots by Mexican drug cartels. From the Brownsville Herald:
A plot to kidnap and kill two FBI agents on the Texas-Mexico border was announced Friday in a bulletin issued by the agency’s San Antonio office.
According to a copy of the FBI bulletin obtained by The Brownsville Herald, officials said they had received credible information that members of the Gulf Cartel plan to kidnap two agents, take them into Mexico and murder them.
The cartel allegedly has 250 armed men posted near Matamoros, across from Brownsville, according to the bulletin.
And, it further states that several members of the group have valid visas and passports that would allow them to enter the United States quietly and legally.
The FBI requested that all law enforcement remain vigilant until further notice.
Meanwhile, the Department of Homeland Security has dispatched U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers along with Border Patrol agents to provide help at the border…in Iraq.blog comments powered by Disqus
