The FBI Director of Puerto Rico, Douglas Leff, is preparing his agents for an attack from ISIS terrorists. “The Islamic terrorists can attack here, and they will,” said Leff during a radio interview with NotiUno 630.
This is the latest in a series of FBI alerts, regarding potential violence on the island of Puerto Rico…
THE FBI CONTRADICTS ITSELF
Director Leff expressed concern that ISIS terrorists could “enter the US through Puerto Rico,” and then “have access to the rest of the United States.”
That does not make any sense.
The US-Mexico border is 1,989 miles long, and the US-Canada border is 1,538 miles long. Together, they amount to over 3,500 miles of permeable border.
An ISIS terrorist can simply walk into the U.S. from either border…whereas in Puerto Rico, the terrorist would still have to get on a plane, show a passport and pass through TSA airport security, in order to enter the U.S.
Director Leff also claimed that Puerto Rico represents a “soft target” for ISIS terrorists who want to hurt the U.S. This also makes no sense, for at least three reasons.
#1. If a terrorist wants to “enter the rest of the US,” he would do so quietly. The last thing he would do is explode bombs in Puerto Rico, and trigger an island-wide manhunt, before boarding the plane to New York.
#2. If a terrorist wants to frighten the US, he will not accomplish this by bombing Puerto Rico 1,500 miles away. He will do it in the US.
#3. Puerto Ricans have themselves been victimized by the US…for the past 118 years. Why would ISIS bomb the victims, and ignore the villains?
AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT FBI AGENDA
The FBI is clearly pursuing another agenda with this “Puerto Rico ISIS alert.”
Given the mounting resentment of an economic takeover of Puerto Rico by a U.S. Financial Control Board, and a looming minimum wage cut to $4.25 while the rest of the U.S. moves towards $15.00, this “ISIS alarm” seems more like a prelude to martial law in Puerto Rico.
The FBI is preparing to clamp down on any dissent or civil disobedience in Puerto Rico…and they are using ISIS as an excuse.
JUST LIKE THE 1950s
This FBI warning is just like the one issued during the 1950s, when Pedro Albizu Campos and the Nationalists were branded as “Communist agents” by the FBI, and by Gov. Luis Muñoz Marín.
Now in 2016, any public demonstration – against the Financial Control Board; NALED fumigation; or the privatization of beaches, schools, electricity and water – may now be branded as “domestic terrorism.” In this way, the First Amendment rights of the demonstrators could be superseded by the Patriot Act, the Homeland Security Act, and the USA Freedom Act.
Any similarities to Public Law 53 (aka the Gag Law, La Ley de la Mordaza) are, of course, purely coincidental.
