One Damn Thing After Another

Not good

U.S. security officials are investigating a recent intelligence report that a group of 25 Chechen terrorists illegally entered the United States from Mexico in July.
The Chechen group is suspected of having links to Islamist terrorists seeking to separate the southern enclave of Chechnya from Russia, according to officials familiar with intelligence reports.
Members of the group, said to be wearing backpacks, secretly traveled to northern Mexico and crossed into a mountainous part of Arizona that is difficult for U.S. border security agents to monitor, said officials speaking on the condition of anonymity.

The only thing encouraging about this report is that it comes from the Washington Times which tends to run with stories other media would want more collaboration on. The rest of the story is just a bad Tom Clancey novel - indeed it was the plot of the last Clancey I read except the nuisance (there, I feel much better) was Arab.
