Coast Guard restricted from activity

MIAMI, FL – Drugs, weapons, illegal aliens all are welcome under a new directive. There is an ongoing, emergency situation with the U.S. Coast Guard, which is now an agency under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

“By directive, starting last Monday, 29 April 2013 (barring emergency calls) Coast Guard District 7, which stretches from the Carolinas to Alabama to Florida, has been restricted from activity. There will be no enforcement patrols of large or small craft allowed in U.S. territorial seas, district-wide,” according to a WDW confidential source.

This directive will mean that, of several hundred craft available, neither the close-in enforcement operations (out to 20-nautical miles) nor the larger, blue water enforcement craft – cutters and the like – are actively engaged in protecting our shoreline. All such operations have ceased; no fuel is to be used to protect the U.S. shores, at least in District 7. All vessels would be confined to port, and personnel would be standing around, passing time onshore. Emergency rescue and limited air operations still continue.

Our confidential source states, “To put a perspective on this: an average Coast Guard small boat, for example, is a light, maneuverable outboard-equipped craft capable of quickly answering calls for detaining, boarding and inspecting vessels close to shore. They look for drugs, human trafficking, and weapons – including nuclear devices – which, incidentally when found are disarmed or turned over to the U.S. Navy bomb disposal units.”
