Extreme drug smuggling.

May 9, 2014

Smugglers attempting to get illegal drugs across the Mexican border into the United States have begun using exotic and extreme methods. The construction of the new, secure fence along the border has forced them to get smart or lose money.

Some of the methods employed to cross the US/Mexico border include, tunnels, ultra-light aircraft, catapults, ramps, and cranes. Tunnels are dug under the border and can be as long as several miles. They can remain hidden for months, even years until someone tips the Border Patrol.

Ultra-light aircraft fly across the border at low altitudes, usually at night, drop a package of drugs in a field, then return without landing or being detected.

Catapults similar to those used in ancient times to besiege castles are rolled up to the border fence at night and packages of drugs flung across the border to waiting dealers.

Even portable ramps are placed across the fence, then a vehicle is driven across loaded with drugs. Once across the fence the vehicle disappears into the night.

One of the latest methods employs portable cranes to lift cars or trucks loaded with drugs across the fence at night. By the time this is discovered the smugglers are long gone.

The only thing the new fence along the US/Mexico border does is slow the smugglers down. The smugglers learn to innovate quickly to ensure the flow of drugs and money does stop. It takes all the ingenuity and resources of the Border Patrol to keep pace with them and their sometimes bizarre methods of crossing.

Terrorist Cries in Court

Khan at work

Terrorist Khan Mohammed, 38 of Nangarhar Province Afghanistan was sentenced to life in prison in a Washington, DC courtroom today. Khan was convicted of drug trafficking and narco-terrorism charges. 

Seems he was plotting rocket attacks on U.S. military forces and Afghan civilians at Jalalabad airfield in Afghanistan. He was arrested, extradited and put on trial in the United States. He was also importing drugs as part of his jihad. Afghan police testified against him and submitted tape recordings of his attempt to buy missiles from an undercover officer. 

He was unable to obtain the missiles he wanted, otherwise many would have been killed. Testimony in court clearly demonstrated he has an extreme hatred of the United States. 

Now here’s the laughable part. He begged the judge before sentencing to give him one or two years so he could return to his family. He was sobbing as he asked the court to be merciful. Thankfully sense prevailed. The judge turned to Khan after sentencing and told him, “I heard your concerns for your family, but no acceptance of responsibility for your action.” 

Khan will die in prison. A proper death for this Taliban terrorist.
