Arizona National Guard Overrun At Border By Mexican “Gunmen”, Forced To Retreat

Famous Quotes from International Incident

Arizona National Guard Overrun At Border By Mexican “Gunmen”, Forced To Retreat

The U.S. Border was breached Wednesday night along Arizona’s border with Mexico prompting local residents to flee for their lives.

An Entry Identification Team site was also overrun Wednesday night along Arizona’s border with Mexico.

Original “Mexican Gunmen” Post

According to the (most likely satirical article at The 800lb Gorilla) these Famous Quotes were uttered related to the Incident:

“We Got Wetbacks In The Wire!”
– National Guardsman Sergeant 1st Class Butch Malone

“They were everywhere, man! “We were just minding our own business, playing hearts, and all of a sudden – BOOM! – all hell broke loose. We never even had a chance.”
– Private 1st Class Anthony Davis

An actual news article from a slightly less reliable source appears here:

Gunmen force Guard troops to flee post near border

According to that article the incident occurred in the west desert corridor between Nogales and Lukeville in the vicinity of Sasabe and these famous quotes were reported in that version of the incident.

“We don’t know exactly how many because obviously it took place in the dark.” “Nobody was able to get an accurate count.”
– National Guard Sgt. Edward Balaban

“We don’t know if this was a matter of somebody coming up accidentally on the individuals, coming up intentionally on the individuals, or some sort of a diversion,”
– Rob Daniels – spokesman for the Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector.

The reliability of the second source is somewhat suspect, considering the quality of political coverage normally found there.

Several of these quotes are probably fraudulent or misquotations but we will say no more about that without further investigation.

Perhaps a congressional committee can be appointed?
