Underwater Robot Collides with Propeller
Underwater Robot Collides with Propeller During Homeland Security Mission Inspecting Oil Tanker
Demonstrates compelling reasons for not putting divers at risk for inspections
Comment: I did not even know they did this (use remote sub), did you?
"Nearly all of the cargo in the nation's aviation system goes unchecked for explosives"
"The Customs Service physically inspects two percent of imported, and one percent of exported cargo."
By Sea, different number (2003):
"Only about 3 percent of all cargo containers on ships coming into the United States are inspected. "
I'm still not sure what to make of this. I guess if it's already in a container, it has a 1% chance of getting inspected?
Where are those HomeLand defense dollars being spent?
I like a good conspiracy theory as well as anyone... but I suspect the explanation's a lot more benign.
The Coast Guard is now part of DHS. The CG routinely inspects oil tankers for damage that might lead to an oil spill. The article doesn't specify which agency, but that's my guess.
