Interview Raises Questions Over Weapons Of Mass Effect In SD
10News investigative reporter Mitch Blacher asked, "Do you ever find things that are dangerous like a chemical agent or a weaponized device?"

"At the airport, seaport, at our port of entry we have not this past fiscal year, but our partner agencies have found those things," said Hallor.

"So, specifically, you're looking for the dirty bomb? You're looking for the nuclear device?" asked Blacher.
"Correct. Weapons of mass effect," Hallor said.
"You ever found one?" asked Blacher.
"Not at this location," Hallor said.
"But they have found them?" asked Blacher.
"Yes," said Hallor.
"You never found one in San Diego though?" Blacher asked.
"I would say at "the port" of San Diego we have not," Hallor said. (quote marks mine)
"Have you found one in San Diego?" Blacher asked.

The interview was interrupted before Hallor was able to answer the question. The Public Affairs Official would only let Hallor talk about the port of SD at this point.

Customs and Border Protection issued this statement after the interview:
CBP has not specifically had any incidents with nuclear devices or nuclear materials at our ports of entry. CBP is an all-threats agency. The purpose of many security measures is to prevent threats from ever materializing by being prepared for them. And, we must be prepared to stop threats in whatever form they do materialize at the border, whether it’s an individual or cargo arriving by land, air, or sea. Regardless of what the contraband or threat is, we’re being smart, evaluating, and focusing in on anything or anyone that is potentially high-risk.We were able to show you first-hand one example of how we evaluate segment risk, inspect, etc. in the cargo environment by air and sea here in San Diego. This is one portion of the CBP mission, and hopefully gives you some examples of how much has evolved in the past decade, with the new technologies we have at our disposal. This, coupled with document requirements at the border, advanced passenger and cargo information, better information sharing, and many other measures help us to secure the border - and each measure doesn’t work individually or in a vacuum, but rather in the layered security that we were able to demonstrate one facet of. raw video link http://www.10news.com/video/26827497/index.html

If you read the article the person being interviewed said nothing has been found and in the video the officer being interviewed said only drugs and illegal stowaways were found.;-)

However that does not mean that it could not happen from what I have read there are a lot of containers that come into the United States ports that go unchecked.

Sorry, I read a different version:

"we (CBP) have not found anything ... but our partner agencies have ..."
You ever found one?" asked Blacher.
"Not at this location," Hallor said. (referring to the port)
"But they have found them?" asked Blacher.
"Yes," said Hallor.
"You never found one in San Diego though?" Blacher asked.
"I would say at "the port" of San Diego we have not," Hallor said. (quote marks mine)
"Have you found one in San Diego?"

Read what you want though, Roger.

So, are we to believe that "they" whomever "they" are found "something" whatever "something" means somewhere but it was not at the Port in San Diego yet the video that was taken was at the Port of San Diego (ships not airplanes in background)?

Let me tyoe this real slowly for you Roger:
A govt employee stated that a partner agnecy has found weapons of mass effect in the the last fiscal year, chemical agents or weponized devices. He could not clarify his remarks as to exactly where the devices were found because he was interrupted by the PAO.

The subsequent CBP statement says only that the CBP has not found nuclear devices or materials at the port of entry. It does not deny that other agencies have found these materials or that CBP may have found these materials at locations other than poe's. It also does not deny that CBP found chemical agents or other devices.

Sometimes what govt agancies don't say is as important as what govt agancies do say.

You should really send in your resume to be Obama's next Press Secretary. You're a natural.
