Arizona: a ‘Terrorist Corridor?’<br>

A major threat to homeland security that has lurked uneasily in the back of America’s public consciousness burst into the news last month when the FBI issued a bulletin to the Mexican media and border-area law enforcement to be on the lookout for a suspected al Qaeda terror cell leader who might be trying to sneak into the United States along immigrant smuggling routes.

I’m sure many people had the same reaction I did to the news about “armed and dangerous” terrorism suspect Adnan G. El Shukrijumah: an aggravated lack of surprise. After all, how could our notoriously porous border not be a conduit for terrorists? Why wouldn’t those seeking to attack America be tempted to join the hundreds of thousands already illegally entering from Mexico?
