#1 Read another that complained they have too few assets in the region to monitor the region, catching only 1/3 of known drug flights--drones, etc. tied up in ME/SAsia. One Palestinian cabbie in USVI was all excited about their growing mosque with all the converts and Muslims coming from "down island"...hop, skip, and jump to mainland by boat or with daily flights to PR and south Florida. Definitely a weak link in border security.

#2 Just think how much heroin and hashish Iranians could bring to a country like Venezuela or even Mexico either in their diplomatic pouches or openly. And you know that with a border with Afghanistan they have access to all the dope they could possible sell. And with Obama refusing to secure our border with Mexico it is coming to a street near you. Not to mention the guns.

#3 Iran also has weekly flights to Caracas, only no one can book a flight.

#4 IMO NOT necessarily un-related ...
* DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > IRAN AND HEZBOLLAH HAVE SA-24 "GRINCHES" [advanced MANPADS], vee Uncle Muammar's former arsenal back in Libyuh.
Sooner or later the USDHS + USDOD should expect to see the super-techy stuff, including NucWeaps, in the hands of MilTerrs = NGOS, Islamist or other, operat in the lower Americas.
* FREEREPUBLIC > [Rep. Peter T. King, R-NY] KING ANNOUNCES HEARING ON IRAN/HEZBOLLAH THREAT TO US HOMELAND.
IMo, the Hearing should analyze the CURREN STATE OF THE "GLOBAL JIHAD" + ISLAMIST NUCLEARIZATION,PROLIFERATION; + any Strategic threat to CONUS-NORAM + US Allies therefrom.
* E.g. TOPIX > ISRAEL + PLIGHT OF MIDDLE EAST CHRISTIANS.
Iff post-"Arab Spring" Egypt + Libyuh + now Syruh is any measure, ISLAMIST-LED "ANTI-TYRANNY/DESPOTISM" NEED NOT BE OR INFER PRO-TOLERANCE OR "NEUTRALITY" VEE NON-MUSLIM MINORITIES.
Similar precept as per GLOBAL ECON MARKETS . i.e. WHAT NEW MARKETS OR ACCESS IS THE ECON, DEBT-BURDENED US GETTING OUT FROM ALL THIS GWOT + OWG-NWO + "GLOBALISM"???
I don't see the Bammer nor GOP-DEMS telling the Teamsters, Longshoremen, etal. Organized Unions that their Members have to go to back to school to learn Robotics, Aviation Piloting-Navigation-Mechanics, Starship = SpaceShip Engineering + Astronomical Sciences, etc.???
