- Texas Governor Rick Perry's words when asked if he believes ISIS is coming to attack the U.S.
And so it seems that our State Department has now issued yet another
of its many 'travel warnings' for Americans going to Mexico...another
warning to remain ever vigilant as “organized criminal groups” threaten the safety and security of Americans traveling in that country.
"Organized criminal groups" my eye...they're talking about

JERUSALEM – The Israeli military said Sunday that it shot down a drone that entered Israeli-controlled airspace from neighboring Syria, heightening tensions in the volatile Golan Heights.
Military spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said the aircraft apparently belonged to the Syrian military and accidentally crossed over into the Israeli-controlled side of the Golan. It was shot down with a Patriot missile.
"We have repeatedly stated that we will respond to any breach of Israel's sovereignty and will continue to act to maintain safety and security," Lerner said.
The military said the incident occurred near Quneitra, a main crossing point between Syria and the Israeli-controlled Golan.

The three-page bulletin, entitled “ISIS Interest on the US Southwest Border” and dated Aug. 28 was released to law enforcement on Thursday.
“Social media account holders believed to be ISIS militants and propagandists have called for unspecified border operations, or they have sought to raise awareness that illegal entry through Mexico is a viable option,” states the law enforcement bulletin, which is not classified.
It notes no known credible homeland threats or specific homeland attack plot has been identified. That assertion was underscored by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, who said Friday that DHS and the FBI are "unaware of any specific, credible threat to the U.S. homeland" from Islamic State.
