    Illegal arms were shipped to Syrian rebels from Libya and this could be the reason Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton lied and claimed the attack on the consulate was the result of a video. Seymour Hirsch published an investigative report stating that there is an addendum to the Senate Intelligence Committee report which explains what the CIA was doing in Benghazi. Our government was shipping arms from Libya through Turkey to Syrian rebels before we realized they were al-Qaida. The reason the government lied was probably to conceal an illegal operation to arm Syrian rebels. Ambassador Stevens was the coordinator....

    South Africa sent a report to the United Nations saying it confiscated a shipment of North Korean tank parts hidden among sacks of rice which were headed for the Republic of Congo in violation of U.N. sanctions. In the report, obtained Thursday by The Associated Press, the South African government said the two containers are currently stored in a state-secured warehouse in Durban while its investigation continues. It estimated the value of the conventional arms at 6 million rand (about $770,000) The shipment's final destination, according to the bill of lading, was the port of Pointe Noire in the Republic...

    WASHINGTON -- Foreign flag vessels, many of shadowy origins, now account for 90 percent of shipping into and out of the United States and could pose a security risk to the country, lawmakers were told Thursday. Of greatest concern is the "flag of convenience" system where ship owners often have no connection to the country under which their ship is registered, witnesses told a House Armed Services Committee panel. This system, said William Schubert, maritime administrator with the Transportation Department, "can inadvertently open the door for criminal and terrorist activity that would be impossible under the U.S. flag registry." "From...

    PANAMA CITY, Panama - These are the only two things known for certain about a wayward shipment of 3,000 AK-47 assault rifles that has created an uproar in at least three countries: (1) The shipment left Nicaragua on Nov. 2 aboard the 200-foot, Panama-flagged tramp steamer Otterloo. (2) It was bound for the Panamanian police. Everything else about the shipment remains a mystery. But the 173-ton arsenal, bought from the Nicaraguan police in a deal that seemed so clean Managua officials had notified the U.S. Embassy, evolved into one of the largest and most daring arms smuggling capers in the...
  • U.S. Tracking Ships in Mediterranean

    BERLIN -- Acting on intelligence gathered by American and allied agencies, the United States is tracking ships that have left ports in Africa and are in the Mediterranean that may be involved in smuggling goods to finance terrorist groups, according to a senior U.S. military officer in Europe. Authorities are now working through technical and legal issues to decide if the ships, which are also suspected of carrying supplies to make weapons of mass destruction, should be boarded at sea or inspected when they try to dock, said the officer, who has been taking part in high-level daily intelligence briefings ...

    (09:40) Report: US knows Karine A was headed for PA It is reportedly clear to the US government that the weapons-laden Karine A vessel captured by Israeli naval commandos over the weekend was destined for the Palestinian Authority. However, the US has refrained from issuing a statement indicating such in order to restrain a potential Israeli military response directed at the PA, American sources told Army Radio. Omar Akawi, captain of the Karine A, said yesterday PA officials were directly involved in the purchase and smuggling of the 50 tons of arms it carried. While US officials say privately they ...

    In less than eight minutes, the operation was over. Israeli naval commandos slid down ropes from air force helicopters and simultaneously climbed up the sides onto a PLO freighter carrying 50 tons of arms and overtook the vessel by complete surprise, without firing a shot. Today at 5:00 PM, the Prime Minister, along with other government and military officials, will display the contents of the ship to foreign diplomats and the press. The operation, code-named “Noah’s Ark,” was carried out early Thursday morning about 500 kilometers (300 miles) south of Israel in the Red Sea. The planning of the operation ...
