Terrorism in Mexico

Three people associated with the U.S. Consulate office in Ciudad Juarez were killed Saturday in the troubled city, prompting swift condemnation from President Barack Obama.

"The president is deeply saddened and outraged by the news of the brutal murders of three people associated with the United States Consulate General in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico," White House National Security Council spokesman Mike Hammer said in a prepared statement, "including a U.S. citizen employee, her U.S. citizen husband and the husband of a Mexican citizen employee."

On Sunday, the U.S. State Department ordered the evacuation of dependents of U.S. personnel in six U.S. consulates in Mexico.

It's nice Obama noticed. Too bad no one notices that the real terrorist threat we will confront in the next decade comes from across our porous southern border with Mexico.
