UNITED NATIONS A shipment containing 16 kilograms of cocaine was seized last week at the U.N.'s mail intake center, a New York Police Department spokesman said Thursday.
Paul Browne, NYPD's chief spokesman, said the drug was in a white bag evidently masquerading as a diplomatic pouch that raised suspicions when it was being scanned because it was stamped with what looked like a poorly concocted version of the U.N. logo.
Browne said here was no name or address on the shipment sent from Mexico City through Cincinnati.
U.N. security officials called the NYPD and Drug Enforcement Administration, which confirmed the substance inside the shipment intercepted Jan. 16 was cocaine, the police spokesman said.

...guess it could have been anthrax
Sounds like the boys at the UN were getting ready to write up another resolution and were going to party afterwards.
Endemic drug use would go a long way towards explaining some of the UN’s bizarre words and deeds.
Which country did the pouch belong to?
At 16 keys, NO WAY this was the first shipment.
I’m sure there’s a perfectly innocent explanation for this.
WOW!!! 16 kilograms of cocaine could lead to another Global Warming report.
Those dudes at the UN have one hell of a habit.
Simply use the Sandy Berger defense. It works every time.
Sandy Berger... whatever became of that fat thieving pig?
“raised suspicions when it was being scanned because it was stamped with what looked like a poorly concocted version of the U.N. logo.”
Diabolically clever to avert any copyright infringement prosecution....
...guess when a UN worker turns up in the East River we’ll be able to figure it out
He's scurrying around 'K' Street like a rat in the shadows making
millions MILLIONS every year lobbying and selling defense secrets. His new book deal will probably be announced soon.
Isn’t it amazing, all the large drug seizures all over the newspapers since Fast and Furious and the Cartel laundering scandal? This diplomatic pouch virtually jumped on someone’s lap.
My take: It was supposed to be Obama’s fix for the rest of the year. I wonder who was supposed to deliver it to him.
Damn, so THAT’s where I left it.
Little help ?
