ISIS And Drug Cartels Use Same Operational Plan

"There seems to be at least a talking to each other..."


Representative Ted Poe (R-TX) was a guest on Newmax TV’s America’s Forum on Wednesday when host J.D. Hayworth asked if there is synergy between Mexican drug cartels and groups like ISIS.  Poe is a member of the House Judiciary Committee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security who is knowledgeable on the subject:

“My opinion is yes.  There seems to be at least a talking to each other. How much?  I don’t know.  But they’re using, drug cartels use the same operational plan as terrorist groups do.  They kill their opponents, they behead their opponents, they brag about it and they have operational control of many portions of the southern border of the United States.  Mexico doesn’t.  The United States doesn’t.  Otherwise they wouldn’t be crossing daily with their drugs.  They’re as vicious as some of these other terrorist organizations.  We need to recognize them that this is an organized international crime group.  And we have to deal with them as such.”
