Wasn’t the purpose of the post-911 wars to keep bad people from entering the US?
The US Marines thought so:
“We fight over there, so we don’t have to fight here”
These guys are risking their ass in the War on Terror to keep the US safe? How does this work?
During the War on Terror we have been warned of threats including dirty bombs, anthrax, ISIS, suicide bombers, etc.
2015- If heroin-trafficking cartels are able to move product into Washington State– what prevents the badass terrorists we are supposed to stay scared of from showing up also?
Heroin traffickers show the way-
Heroin traffickers are frequently successful at what they do. If terrorists were just as interested in entering the US- it appears that federal departments and agencies would have no way to stop them.
50 pounds of heroin gets past the US Dept. of Homeland Security and into the Puget Sound area:
BUSTED: 100 pounds of meth, 50 pounds of heroin, 12 people now in police custody
As always- the big law enforcement success story comes with zero reporting or questions from newspeople about why the Dept. of Homeland Security & post-911 security protocols are unable to keep heroin out of the US.

Thanks for your service
Looks like local LE agencies are potentially set up for a conflict of interest- they benefit when heroin is not kept out of the US:
Seattle media: Heroin busts could finance police construction in Snohomish
US Border Patrol, Port Angeles, WA-
Still no justification provided by elected officials or the US Border Patrol for an upgrade in staff requiring a new, $11.9 million, 50 agent facility.
Massing US Border Patrol agents at Port Angeles fails to keep heroin out of town. Frequent updates here.
Question for newspeople:
What role do 1,200-horsepower Border Patrol Interceptor boats play in keeping heroin away from the Olympic Peninsula?
“… their main interaction with the boating public: Boarding boats and checking for ID, getting a “vibe,” as Jeff P. called it, for what’s up.”
If you run a government operation- these are the reporters you want to see on interview day:
Please consider doing a report/asking questions Re: the US Dept. of Homeland Security/CBP & the role they play in keeping heroin out of the Puget Sound area.
Special/Enhanced ID has been required to go have lunch in Canada- then return home- since 2009.
If special ID works to keep bad guys out- how are cartels moving heroin into the Puget Sound area in 2015?
“James said western Washington might as well be the backyard for three Mexican drug cartels.”
On the national scene-
Has anyone ever seen the press question the US Dept. of Homeland Security/CBP on their role in keeping heroin out of the US?
If anyone can find an example in mainstream news- please post in comments.
