Bomb plot alert at Falcon Dam
[snip]An alleged plot by a Mexican drug cartel to blow up a dam along the Texas border and unleash billions of gallons of water into a region with millions of residents sent American police, federal agents and local disaster officials scrambling last month to thwart such an attack, authorities confirmed Wednesday.
Whether the cartel, which is known to have stolen bulk quantities of gunpowder and dynamite, could have taken down the five-mile-long Falcon Dam may never be known.
But it may have been derailed by a stepped-up presence by the Mexican military, acting in part on intelligence from the U.S. government, sources said.
The warning was based on what the federal government contends were serious and reliable sources and prompted the Homeland Security Department to sound the alarm to first responders all along the South Texas-Mexico border.
Mexicos Zeta cartel was planning to destroy the dam
Gun boat diplomacy needs to be resurrected when dealing with these narco-anarcho-thugs.
Maybe a man made lake that borders Mexico isn't such a good idea anymore and should be drained.
