California Port Closed


The Port of Hueneme in Ventura County, north of Los Angeles is closed due to a possible terrorist threat in the form of a note reading;

""This nitro is for you, Mr. George W. Bush and your Jewish cronies.""

from WaPo

A dock worker at the Port of Hueneme in Ventura County discovered a possible threat written in the cargo hold of a ship carrying bananas from Guatemala, said Will Berg, the port's marketing director.

Federal authorities, including the FBI, and local officials were investigating, Berg said.

About 20 people aboard the ship, a 30,000-ton refrigerated vessel that arrived from the Port of Quetzal in Guatemala, were evacuated, he said. Workers already outside the port were being kept out, though anyone inside was allowed to remain.

This is probably just a cruel (and costly) hoax commited by an angry Guatamalan, but it shows how vulnerable our ports could be if in the wrong hands.

I am not at all surprised by this anti-semitic message.

So, Pres. Bush... Shall we secure our ports and borders now, or not?
