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

Posted on 02/14/2011 1:03:08 PM PST by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

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.”

Fox News had a segment on Mygan Kelly’s show.

DHS seems to have an effective gag capability on the media for some reason?

If it bleeds it leads.

Since nothing went off and nobody bled, and the dimwits claim there is no “war on terror” then why stop talking about Lady Gaga and Lindsey Lohan.

C’mon now... don’t frighten the people. They might remember that whole dreary story about airplanes and the WTC. /sarcasm

I thought that Breitbart and Drudge were pretty close. Why is Drudge ignoring this story?

Surprisingly, not only did Megyn Kelly include the dirty bomb story, she led with it at the 2:00 PM segment and pointedly observed that only nuclear WMD were being explicitly denied at one point and not chem or bio. That was before the subsequent blanket denial.

It's a sad revelation to finally see that, compared to the Obama administrations "transparency" with the people...

Baghdad Bob was a more credible and believable source of information about what was going on in his country.

Time to stockpile food. And ammo.

Obama: EPIC Fail.

The MSM has become completely unreliable for reporting news and is solely occupied with cheerleading for Obama and the left. That includes omitting anything that makes Obama look bad, which could potentially be an industry unto itself.

Did anyone else notice that WMD’s have a subcatagory now? There are apparently WME’s now. (Weapons of maximum effect)

WMD’s?

That’s not news.

Haven’t you heard about Lady Gaga’s egg?

Wait until one contaminates an urban warren for untold centuries. The media will then blame conservatives - wherever they are for an equal time, if we live that long.

I've been following all these posts this weekend. I was sure I saw the article posted on Drudge but didn't click on it because I had already seen it here. I went back to Drudge later and it was gone.

Did anyone else see it on Drudge briefly or am I just being dyslexic?

Shoot, the MSM still doesn't get that there were WMDs in Iraq.

They just can't connect the dots in their little heads to the satellite images of convoys heading to Jordan to the lack of material found.

"Wait until one contaminates an urban warren for untold centuries."

Not likely. A non-nuclear "dirty bomb" is unlikely to be very efficient in dispersing radioactivity. The particulates formed will fall out quickly, and are among the easier things to detect and clean up.

The only real value in such a device is the "scare factor" associated with the word "nuclear".

You don’t know anything of the sort. You may be thinking 2D when it is entirely possible that one of these things could go off atop a 30 story or higher building. How do you clean up windborne particulate then? I suggest you think a bit more about it.
