” How secure are U.S. military installations? You would think the answer is: very.
But, as the News 4 Tucson Investigators uncovered, one installation, right here in southern Arizona, continues to face potential outside security risks, and the problem doesn’t seem to be getting any better.
Much of the work that goes on at Fort Huachuca is classified but, as the News 4 Tucson Investigators learned, keeping people who don’t belong there out, proves to be a difficult mission.
Fort Huachuca is home of the U.S. Army Intelligence Center and the U.S. Army Network Enterprise Technology Command. It’s also the site of hundreds of apprehensions of illegal immigrants each year.
Dave Stoddard, a former U.S. Border Patrol supervisor tells the News 4 Tucson Investigators, “I think the average American should be petrified.”
Stoddard knows the area well. He grew up in Cochise county, served in the U.S. Army, and has even testified before Congress about illegal immigration.”
If government can’t even secure it’s own “Classified Military Facility” how are we supposed to have faith in their ability to secure the nation as a whole ? This is nuts . The time to build a real fence that at least offers some sort of deterrent effect is long past . We realize that some of the “mules” and illegals will get through but something must be done . How many terrorists have gained access to our country by taking the overland route from Mexico , we’ll never know , but while the TSA and DHS are making the average American’s travel life a living hell nobody is minding the back door .
This is the type of deterrent commonly found in the border areas , nothing that would give illegals pause , oh no , what our guardians do to protect the people that pay their salaries is to warn them not to go to certain areas of our own country . That’s on a par with the no-go zones that many European nations have allowed to fester and grow in their cities and that are making appearances here in the Dearborn Michigan and upstate NY .
