    In my hometown of McAllen, of all places... I saw it on the local news first, but I didn't think it was that big of a find.

    Developing... :cool: ;)

    The big question is will she give up the plot and everyone else. Had we applied the screws to Zaccarias Moussaoi we might have stopped 9/11. If she was going to NYC the obvious target would be the Republican convention. Who knows what the method of attack would have been.

    I'm not seeing this reported on any major news site... because it's a bogus story, or because they just haven't picked it up yet. :confused:

    I don't know if they've confirmed whether or not she's actually a person of any significance in the terrorist scene...

    Either way, if you cross the Rio Grande illegally from Mexico, you keep walking past the border patrol checkpoint in Falfurias, not hop on a plane to New York... She obviously planned to get into America so she could take a domestic flight to New York City, which is a high profile city. She wouldn't have gotten far on an international flight, because they screen those like nobody's business, but it makes one wonder how many people, or terrorists have done this: cross the border in a relatively easy place to cross, and hop on a domestic flight to a large city...
