Former CIA Official Warns of Terrorist Threats, Calls Out Biden Admin

( – A former official of the U.S.’ intelligence agency, the CIA, is sounding warning bells regarding the Biden administration’s laxness at the border, saying that conditions there present opportunities for terrorists to enter the U.S.

Mike Morell, who served as a deputy director for the CIA, said that the administration of President Joe Biden is demonstrating a dangerous “lack of a sense of urgency” regarding the threat of terrorist activity in the U.S.

In an op-ed he penned alongside Graham Allison, a former assistant secretary of the U.S. government’s Defense for Policy and Plans, Morell said that there were parallels between the events that led up to the devastating September 11 terrorist attacks as well as the current political and military climate – especially in the Middle East – caused by Israel’s ongoing war with Hamas and the former’s armed foray into the Gaza strip.

According to Morell, given that the border – along with the agents and other government entities overseeing it – is constantly being overwhelmed by the sheer number of migrants looking to enter the U.S., terrorists can easily exploit the chaos and use one of the many illegal means illegal immigrants use to simply cross into the country.

Both Morell and Allison also pointed to multiple testimonies before Congress made by FBI Director Christopher Wray, where he pointed out the obvious weak point the border crisis creates in the U.S.’ defense. Furthermore, the two national security experts pointed to the hundreds of individuals on the country’s terrorist watchlist who were caught attempting to cross the border.

“It is not difficult to imagine a person, or even a group, with the intent to do harm slipping across a border,” the two men said in their op-ed.

Morell also cited a report released by the Office of the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security that said that there was an urgent need for the government to implement stricter screening protocols for people seeking asylum in the U.S. as well as non-citizens who are seeking to enter the country.
