  Border Schmorder, what possible reason would we want to secure our southern border.
WCCO: International: "MANAGUA, Nicaragua (AP) Nicaragua's National Police declared an alert along its borders because of the ``possible presence'' of two suspected members of the al-Qaida terrorist network in Central America, officials said Tuesday.

An Interior Ministry news release identified the two as Ahmad Salim Swaydan, suspected of involvement an April 2002 plot against the U.S. Embassy in Thailand, and a Yemeni man known only as Altuwiti.

A photo of Swaydan released by Nicaraguan authorities matched that of a man on the FBI's most-wanted terrorist list: Sheikh Ahmed Salim Swedan, a 36-year-old Kenyan indicted on Dec. 16, 1998 for alleged involvement in the bombings that year of U.S. embassies in Tanzania and Kenya. The U.S. State Department has offered a reward of up to $5 million for information leading to his arrest.

Nicaragua's Interior Department said it had imposed an ``immigration alert'' at all border posts. But it gave no details about why the alert had been raised."
