Judicial Watch, a group founded by Larry Klayman, has always had a tenuous relationship to reality at best, and their latest claim that unnamed sources in Mexico have found an ISIS training camp a few miles from the border in Mexico is looking more and more like total bullshit.
Residents of a small community on the border say an article about an ISIS training camp in the area is nothing more than a “rumor.”…
“We’re all working class people, people who work in factories and construction,” said Sanchez. “We would notice strangers.”
She and other neighbors say outsiders, especially foreigners, stand out.“Right away you can recognize it by the accent,” said Jose Sanchez. “I’m from Zacatecas for example.”…
“I reached out to the Mexican government, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Northern Command,” said Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) in a statement posted on his Facebook page. “None of them have found any evidence, credible or otherwise, that Isis is in Juárez.”
“Our sources are trusted and in the past have proven reliable and correct,” said Jill Ferrell, a spokesperson for Judicial Watch.
See? These completely anonymous people have, according to this far-right group of wingnuts, has proven reliable in the past. Therefore, they don’t need actual evidence for their claims. Damn skeptics, always ruining their fantasies.
