THE DUBAIANS WOULDN'T HAVE LET IT THROUGH:

Lapses in cargo screening uncovered: Undercover officers reveal the need for even tighter security, after sneaking 'dirty' bomb material into the US. (Alexandra Marks, 3/30/06, The Christian Science Monitor)

All it took were some forged documents to "smuggle" into the US enough nuclear material to make a "dirty" bomb - the kind that mixes radioactive material with conventional explosives to cause extra damage.

In a government sting, US investigators twice managed to slip the illicit materials across America's border, once at a point of entry from Canada and another time from Mexico. And that was after border agents in both instances detected the presence of the nuclear material, but were duped by Nuclear Regulatory Commission documents the investigators had faked.


That's what happens when you don't have the best port management.

Its what happens when the War on Terror is a shallow pretense for world domination.

Heck, the world domination part long predates the WoT. this is just the phase where we extend Anglo-Americanism to the Middle East.

Why bother trying to sneak it in through a port when you can just give it to a couple of Mexicans and have them bring it over the border?
