There is a shooting war going on down in Texas -- and it has nothing to do with Dick Cheney

By Aussiegirl

Phylis Schlafly alerts us to the alarming situation on our porous southern border. Is anybody home? Meanwhile, the administration continues its outlandish policy of appointing cronies to sensitive Homeland Security positions, such as the young, inexperienced, and unqualified Julie Myers, whom you learn about in the quote below. How is it that an administration that is fighting the war on terror with one hand is abdicating its responsibility on the other?

If you don't have access to Texas newspapers or the internet, you may not have heard the sensational news about the enormous cache of weapons just seized in Laredo, Texas. U.S. authorities grabbed two completed Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), materials for making 33 more, military-style grenades, 26 grenade triggers, large quantities of AK-47 and AR-15 assault rifles, 1,280 rounds of ammunition, silencers, machine gun assembly kits, 300 primers, bullet-proof vests, police scanners, sniper scopes, narcotics, and cash.

That sounds like a war is going on in Texas! If bomb-making factories and firearms assembly plants are ordinary day-to-day business in the drug war along our southern border, the American people need to know more about it.

[...] In charge of protecting Americans against this war is 36-year-old Julie Myers, to whom President Bush gave a recess appointment after her Senate confirmation bogged down because of her total lack of law-enforcement experience. Her qualifications are her connections: she is the niece of former Joint Chiefs Chairman Richard Myers and the wife of Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff's chief of staff.
