VIDEO: Reporter Dressed like Osama Bin Laden Crosses US Border Without Being Stopped


CaptureA flamethrowing American conservative activist raised eyebrows in the U.S. on Monday by releasing a video of himself crossing the Rio Grande River from Mexico into Texas, dressed as the late al-Qaeda terror mastermind Osama bin Laden.

Guerrilla documentarian James O’Keefe’s footage comes at a time when Americans are engaged in a national debate about border security. Tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors from Central America have entered the U.S. illegally in recent months, drawn by a confusing White House policy that appears to offer amnesty for those who make it safely.

In Monday’s video release, O’Keefe focuses on the implications for national security: He illegally crosses into Mexico twice and returns – first in street clothes and again in army fatigues, wearing an Osama bin Laden Halloween mask


  1. How is an “activist” in a Purim (Halloween) costume a threat to national security? For starters, the problems with the border are professional criminal transporting drugs, hardworking immigrant wannabees looking for a job, and little kids fleeing civil disorders. Terrorists aren’t an issue on the southern border (most al Queda are well off financially, and would probably arrive at an airport flying first class so they don’t have to go through customs like the “little” people). Reinactors and clowns are NOT a security issue. The border patrol should focus ons real problems, not publicity stunts.

  2. Excuse me, but who really knows how many al qaeda operatives have sneaked across the border?!
    Also, he is simply trying to draw attention to a porous border- he could have dressed up as uncle moishe for all i care.
    The fact that he wasnt stopped is a threat to national security, because if he could do it, so could you, and so could a drug dealer ( or terrorist for that matter)
