(Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) On New Year’s Eve, the Homeland Security Department quietly warned its personnel that al Qaeda has begun to recruit and train suicide bombers to carry out a 9/11-like airplane attack on American soil, according to America First Report.
The memo stated that al Qaeda will pursue a suicide bomber attack with new tactics and techniques.
President Joe Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan has managed to cement the Taliban in power, and his tenure could see the resurgence of al Qaeda’s international terrorism.
As DHS issued the warning about an increased terrorism threat, the Biden administration sent at least 150 Federal Air Marshals, who fly onboard aircrafts to monitor for threats, to the US-Mexico border to handle “a surge in irregular migration,” Judicial Watch reported.
The Biden administration began this practice in October and has no plans to stop sending the highly trained FAMs to the southern border.
The Air Marshal National Council has sent letters to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and other federal officials, informing them that dispatching FAMs to the southern border violates the law and puts the nation’s aircrafts at risk.
“We are once again requesting you immediately stop these dangerous and unnecessary deployments and let our FAMs do what the American taxpayers pay them to do, protect and defend our transportation system,” the council wrote in the letter.
FAMs must have a high intellect to detect suspicious criminal or terrorist activity and have excellent aim to subdue threats in confined spaces filled with civilians. Yet, Biden has tasked them with hospital watch, transportation assistance, and security and welfare checks at migrant facilities.
“We have to ask how can you justify sending FAMs to the border in huge numbers, when the border is in your words secure, and there is no emergency?,” the council wrote. “Yet we have major security incidents happening right now affecting our aviation security.”
