National Media Ignoring San Diego Report of WMDs In America
Big Journalism ^ | Feb 14, 2011 | Bob McCarty

Posted on 02/14/2011 11:47:55 AM PST by BAW

A U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent in San Diego confirmed that weapons of mass effect (a.k.a., “WMDs”) had been found by U.S. officials, but not at the particular port where he was being interviewed by a reporter from ABC affiliate 10News.com.

The video below aired during the local newscast Feb. 9 and featured this “money quote” from Al Hallor, the assistant port director and CBP officer, during the interview: “At the airport, seaport, at our port of entry we have not this past fiscal year, but our partner agencies have found those things.”

Copy the video links and send them to your Senators and Congressman and demand a response as to what they’re doing about this. Or, call them 24/7 and make the same request. We can’t depend on the media to tell We The People the truth.

I sent the links to over 100 friends and asked them to remove email addresses and to forward it to their address list with the request to pass it on.

If YouTubes can be seen by millions in two days, we can surely pass the truth around and not depend on the Liberal MSM.

LOL, I would imagine what they’ve been doing for the last decade...trying to ignore it. The Congress is full of dead heads. They’re in DC for the parties & perks not to do anything substantive, like running the country. We sent them there too. Its hard to imagine why they, at this late date, would feel any compunction to be accountable to the dead heads that put them there.

Whatever this story is really about, it looks even worse with some PR goon interrupting the asst Director of the Port of San Diego, trying to shut him up.

Seriously bad perception. Immediate whiff of cover-up.

That’s why I hope a presidential run is in the future for Allen West.

I just like the idea of the muslim world knowing America has a president who made a terrorist crap himself.

I wouldn’t get too excited about this. Remember that WMD is a Soviet expression, meaning “Weapons of Mass Destruction”. But this was defined as meaning “something that could kill a lot of people”, specifically, nuclear, biological, or chemical weapons.

Most every country in the world is covered with things that could *potentially* be used as WMDs. A broad assortment of commercial chemicals, any hospital’s pathology lab, used radiological equipment, and much, much more, could be seen as *possibly* being used as weapons.

But a big question is how dirty they are, how effectively they could be used, how hard they are to clean up, and how many people they might hurt.

For example, in past there has been a lot of excitement about the disease anthrax. Practically, about every square foot of soil in the plains States has anthrax in it, from more than a thousand years of buffalo roaming over it. Durable stuff, it can last that long.

However, unless you eat a lot of grass, it is unlikely you will ever get it. Even then, few cows ever do.

Dirty bombs? Basically nuclear material tied to a hunk of explosives that vaporizes it.

Well, the trouble is that long-lived, durable radioactive isotopes are quite heavy. Heavier than lead. So if you blow them up in the air, they come right down in a small area. The lighter isotopes usually don’t last long after they are made, usually under a week or two, and then they decay and are no longer a threat. And finding one with a neutral buoyancy, that would neither go straight up or straight down, is not easy.

The few that might work, like radioactive cesium, are very, very tightly monitored around the world, and very difficult to obtain.

So, all told, just regular routine inspections are enough to keep out any serious efforts.

For example, the time a collector tried to import a functional SCUD missile into the US:

LOL, right, Jug Ears will be all over that. More likely he’ll lecture us on why we should be glad to absorb the attack. After all we deserved it....

I suggest a non-muslim president before that's going to happen.

Weapons of Mass Effect…Puleeze…Renaming something doesn’t make it less dangerous…It only makes the people who should be doing something about it part of the problem, and not a solution!!!

"Don’t forget to stock up on potassium iodide."

Potassium iodide is useless for "dirty bomb" residue. The ONLY thing KI prevents is buildup of radioactive iodine in the thyroid. A dirty bomb is very unlikely to contain any...more likely to have either cesium or cobalt isotopes.
