Will ISIS Strike America's Achilles Heel?
According to the indispensable government watchdog group Judicial Watch, the U.S. government has evidence that the jihadist Islamic State — IS — is present in Juarez, Mexico, across the Rio Grande from El Paso, Texas.
Worse yet, the Texas Department of Public Safety believes there is evidence that IS plans an imminent attack in this country. In light of the latest murderous attack by this organization against an American journalist, Steven Sotloff, among other atrocities, such threats must be taken with the utmost seriousness.
Among the targets national security professionals fear may now be in the jihadis’ crosshairs is America’s exceedingly vulnerable electric grid. A panel discussion being held at the National Press Club in Washington Wednesday afternoon will show how a spate of recent attacks involving sabotage and destruction of property at various electric substations here and elsewhere could be leading indicators of the next 9/11 — one potentially vastly more destructive than the original which occurred thirteen years ago next week.
