Neither Syria nor Iraq.

The one you're asking about is still in Mexico.

Or should I say Se.

Sometimes I appreciate difference in opinions more than others. Same-o for 'news':

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/16/us/us-pushes-back-against-warnings-that-isis-plans-to-enter-from-mexico.html?&_r=3 - By MICHAEL S. SCHMIDT - SEPT. 15, 2014

Fox News itself has covered the threats in different ways. After senior administration officials testified at a Senate hearing last week about ISIS, an article on FoxNews.com about the testimony ran under the headline “D.H.S. Confirms ISIS Planning Infiltration of U.S. Southern Border.” An article on Fox News Latino about the same hearing had the headline: “ISIS Terrorists Not Sneaking Over U.S. Southern Border With Mexico, D.H.S. Officials Tell Congress.”

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2014/09/scott-brown-says-president-obama-is-confused-about-isis/ - Sep 23, 2014

“Anyone who turns on the TV these days knows we face challenges to our way of life, radical Islamic terrorists are threatening to cause the collapse of our country. President Obama and Senator [Jeanne] Shaheen seem confused about the nature of the threat, not me,” Brown says into the camera.

“I want to secure the border, keep out the people who would do us harm and restore America’s leadership in the world.”

At a congressional hearing last week, Representative Jeff Duncan, Republican of South Carolina, pushed back strongly against the testimony of Homeland Security Department officials and Mr. O’Rourke, saying they were ignoring a gathering threat.

“Wake up, America,” Mr. Duncan said before storming out of the hearing. “With a porous southern border, we have no idea who’s in our country.

Today Texas Sheriff Gary Painter warned about the possibility that ISIS terrorists could cross the Texas-Mexico border.

Painter told Fox News that close to the border people had foundMuslim clothing” and copies of the Qu’ran. “So we know that there are Muslims that have come across and been smuggled in the United States,” he said.
