While there likely aren’t any posters depicting exotic destinations on the wall, an al-Qaida travel agency operates in Latin America to help terrorists enter the U.S., the 9-11 commission reports.
The revelation was part of the panel’s final report issued Saturday as the commission formally disbanded.
The global terror network operates a travel service that uses human smugglers as tools, reported Agence France-Presse.
“There are uncorroborated law-enforcement reports suggesting that associates of al-Qaida used smugglers in Latin America to travel through the region in 2002, before traveling onward to the United States,” the panel said, without offering specifics.
Though the reference is to 2002, recent news reports indicate a growing concern that Arab terrorists are using the porous southern border to enter the United States.
Though the problem is getting more attention now, WorldNetDaily reported in 2001 that the number of Middle Eastern illegals crossing the southern border was on the rise.
Federal agents said OTMs — border lingo for “other than Mexicans” — were an increasing problem.
