More Blind Mules

A while back, I talked about Blind Mules, where SENTRI card holders with expedited, supposedly trusted, Customs processing privileges on the southern border, were being targeted by drug smugglers to transport their wares.  I posed the question of whether C-TPAT members might similarly be targeted for nefarious activities.

Apparently, I was correct.  Click on the link below:

Trucker Program Attracts Drug Smugglers

And I was correct before I knew it, because this story came out in 2009.

So, again, is a C-TPAT importer’s ocean container a more attractive target for a terrorist’s dirty bomb?  Are you effectively monitoring your container movement from stuffing location to the pier?
