You are so right.
I remember a while back, some smuggler, who normally smuggled illegal aliens actually contacted the CIA or FBI or some US agency ( they probably had some "arrangement"), that 5-6 Middle Easterners wanted him to smuggle them into the US, and what got their attention, is that these men said, they wanted to keep something refrigerated in the process -- biological weapons???
There was no follow up on the news. (It was in a legitimate newspaper)
