Maddow Mocks GOP Rep's Warning of ISIS Infiltrating US, Ignores Dem Rep's Warning

ISIS ... in America? ... that's just crazy talk! At least if claimed by a Republican in Congress and heard at MSNBC -- while a House Democrat making a comparably ominous warning is ignored by the same network.

It was all Rachel Maddow could do last night to contain her mirth at the apparently preposterous possibility that suspected ISIS terrorists have been caught at the US-Mexican border, as claimed by Congressman Duncan Hunter, Republican of California.

Maddow reacted as if Hunter suggested that a deranged man armed with a knife could somehow slip through several layers of security at the White House put in place by our mercilessly efficient Secret Service, until he was belatedly tackled well inside by an off-duty agent. Yeah, right, like that could ever happen! Next we'll be hearing wild-eyed claims that Ebola might make the leap from Africa to Europe, and possibly to the United States.

Maddow's mockery stemmed from Hunter's appearance on Greta Van Susteren's Fox News show Tuesday night --

HUNTER: I know that at least 10 ISIS fighters have been caught coming across the Mexican border in Texas. There's nobody talking about it ...

VAN SUSTEREN: How do you know that?

HUNTER: Because I've asked, because I've asked the Border Patrol, Greta. 

VAN SUSTEREN: And the Border Patrol, they just let ISIS, ISIS members, come across the border?

HUNTER: No, they caught them at them at the border, therefore we know that ISIS is coming across the border. If they catch five or 10 of them, then you know there are going to be dozens more that did not get caught.

This struck Maddow as hilarity at its highest --

MADDOW: Greta's like, what?! (makes goofy face, laughs). According to Republican congressman Duncan Hunter, ISIS is in this country! (as if such a thing is remotely possible!). Duncan Hunter says the United States Border Patrol has captured at least 10 ISIS fighters who have come across the southern border (the same one that tens of thousands of illegals have already crossed this year ...) into the United States! Wow! Is that true or is that false? False! False! False! False! You would have heard about it. (As you would if someone fired bullets into the White House ...).

Maddow said her show "reached out" (awww ...) to the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees the Border Patrol, and one of its crack staff of communications specialists put out the following statement --

The suggestion that individuals who have ties to ISIL have been apprehended at the Southwest border is categorically false, and not supported by any credible intelligence or the facts on the ground. DHS continues to have no credible intelligence to suggest that terrorist organizations are actively plotting to cross the southwest border.

Agreed, the notion that the Obama-led Border Patrol might actually catch ISIS terrorists does comes across as far-fetched.
