EL PASO - Virtually every law enforcement agency on both sides of the border is meeting in El Paso today to address a mutual concern:  Border threats.

An exercise is designed  to evaluate international, inter-agency, and intra-agency communication and emergency response capabilities.

The exercise is being held from 11:30 a.m. to noon at the El Paso Border Patrol Station at 9201 Gateway.

Participating agencies include the U.S. Border Patrol, Customs and Border Protection, the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the El Paso Police Department, the El Paso Fire Department, the Red Cross, Emergency Medical Services, and parallel agencies in Juarez.

The experiences gained from this exercise will help improve the unified response to international events along the U.S./Mexico border.

This is about as dumb as inviting the Taliban to a war meeting in the pentagon to discuss offensive measures. When will the U.S. let it sink into their head that most, if not all of the Mexican officials and politicians are on the cartels payroll. Send them a memo and let them know of OUR plans for emergency response situations.

what protection measures are we taking to ensure that we are not disclosing information to the cartel infiltrators working inside these parallel agencies in juarez?
