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:
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?
