There are a lot of unconfirmed reports, mostly from Spanish language news media, that there were three Al Qaeda terrorist members caught trying to get in to the U.S. with fake Colombian passports.
The 3 members of Al Qaeda were all Syrian nationals who had obtained false Colombian passports and attempted to travel to the US. They were arrested after trying to enter Dallas. They had travelled to Colombia by crossing the border from Venezuela into Colombia #Venezuela pic.twitter.com/DuhTqfk03D— CNW (@ConflictsW) January 23, 2020
These are supposed to be copies of the fake passports.
Now, I could see why government officials would be remiss to release details about catching terrorists at the border. ANd it would make sense that Spanish language reports would get this long before English media news outlets could confirm it. On the other hand, I could see this being completely untrue as well.
Here’s a Spanish language report, for those of you who can understand Espanol:
#23Ene EEUU detuvo a 3 supuestos terroristas de Al Qaeda al intentar ingresar a Dallas portando documentos colombianos qué habrían sido suministrados por una red que detectó la Registraduría y que ya investiga la Fiscalía de ese país. Los detenidos habían estado en Venezuela. pic.twitter.com/eQM0wnlSnj— Maibort Petit (@maibortpetit) January 23, 2020
We were tipped off about this story by the inestimable William Amos, who is very hirable, by the way.
