The Border Security Game
How the media cover up the real border story
|Glenn Spencer, American Border Patrol -- June 13
Back in 2006, George W. Bush signed the Secure Fence Act to build 700 miles of double-layered fence along the U.S. Mexico border. I didn't believe it for a minute, so American Border Patrol launched Operation B.E.E.F. --- Border Enforcement Evaluation First.
"The American People want to see results control of that border. We need to establish standards metrics and show that they have been achieved." -- Sen. Elizabeth Dole (R-NC) 6/28/2007 - Watch
Operation BEEF involved doing aerial surveillance of the border.
I flew the Cessna TU-206 used for the missions. There were two crewmembers in the aft cabin one on a still camera and one on a HD video camera.
On May 17, 2007, we published a report on one of those missions.
At the bottom of that report it says:
Length of border surveyed: 310 miles [the entire area where construction was taking place]
Steel beam vehicle barriers 51.4 miles
Bollard-style vehicle barriers 28 miles
Single-layered steel people barrier fence 16 miles
Double-layered steel people barrier fence 2 miles
On June 28, 2007, speaking on the Senate floor, Sen. Dole said:
"The Secure Fence Act - 700 miles of fencing to be built, only two miles have been built. And so my strong view is that it's not just promises, it's proof that people want. The American People want to see results, control of our borders. So we need to establish standards, metrics and show that they have been achieved."
Sen. Dole got her information from our Operation BEEF ---- there was no other source.
In 2008, a reporter told me that the key public relations person at CBP, Angela de la Rocha, said American Border Patrol was doing a real service for the American people.
American Border Patrol has been telling the truth about the border for eleven years --- but the mainstream media have, with the exception of Slate Magazine, refused to report on our work --- and that includes a possible solution to the border problem.
What does that tell you?
It tells you that the mainstream media are controlled by people who do not want the border secured. It also tells you that the reporters who work for them are whores.
