Incredible Video: U.S. Coast Guard -vs- Drug Cartels…

USCG Frogmen Rule!  The crew of U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Munro are back in San Diego after running a series of 14 separate drug smuggling vessel interdictions and disruptions off the coasts of Mexico, Central and South America by three Coast Guard cutters between May and July 2019.  WATCH:

U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Munro (WMSL 755) crew members board a self-propelled semi-submersible suspected drug smuggling vessel (SPSS) June 18, 2019, while operating in international waters of the Eastern Pacific Ocean. Purpose-build smuggling vessels like SPSSs are designed to hold large quantities of contraband while evading detection by law enforcement authorities.

As a result of their latest deployment the crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Munro will offload more than 39,000 pounds of cocaine and 933 pounds of marijuana worth a combined estimated $569 million, which was seized in international waters in the Eastern Pacific Ocean. Vice President Mike Pence is scheduled to deliver remarks today at 2:45pm EST -from San Diego- while thanking the crews.

USCG Vice President Pence; James W. Carroll, director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy; Uttam Dhillon, acting administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration; and Vice Adm. Linda Fagan, commander of Coast Guard Pacific Area, are scheduled to visit Munro and give remarks.

Numerous U.S. agencies from the Departments of Defense, Justice and Homeland Security cooperated in the effort to combat transnational organized crime. The Coast Guard, Navy, Customs and Border Protection, FBI, Drug Enforcement Administration, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement, along with allied and international partner agencies, play a role in counter-drug operations.

The fight against drug cartels in the Eastern Pacific requires unity of effort in all phases from detection, monitoring and interdictions, to criminal prosecutions by U.S. Attorneys in districts across the nation.

The Coast Guard increased U.S. and allied presence in the Eastern Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Basin, which are known drug transit zones off of Central and South America, as part of its Western Hemisphere Strategy. During at-sea interdictions, a suspect vessel is initially detected and monitored by allied, military or law enforcement personnel coordinated by Joint Interagency Task Force-South based in Key West, Florida.

The law enforcement phase of counter-smuggling operations in the Eastern Pacific is conducted under the authority of the 11th Coast Guard District, headquartered in Alameda, California. The interdictions, including the actual boarding, are led and conducted by members of the U.S. Coast Guard. (Link)

Due to the distance from land, inadequate tow points and flooding in the engine rooms of the boats, the boats were sunk as a hazard to navigation. U.S. Coast Guard photo

    Don’t want to go all detailed oriented but I must. Frogmen is an older term referring to the US Navy SEALs not USCG. How do I know that? Hubby is a good friend with 1 of the Bull Frogs.

    Use a .50 cal to add a little ventilation into the boat area near the propellor and the boat will stop and slowly sink.

    Until the occupants realize their feet are wet, the boat ain’t going anywhere; they’ll pop their top and hastily boil out of that claustrophobic temporarily floating casket.

    Or the Coast Guard could use a harpoon to impale the silly floating box. The the Coast Guard can rachet the thing alongside.
    That way, the Coast Guard can interdict the silly things without endangering sailors.

    If we defended our land borders half as well as we defend our sea borders – as this video is evidence – then there would be no border crisis. Makes you wonder why the cartels even bother with the sea route when the southern border is essentially wide open. Also makes you wonder why the land is so open relative to the sea.

    Seems like the phrase “No Guts No Glory” would apply to these Coasties. The courage and trust displayed by the whole crew in this interdiction was breath taking.

    Honestly can you imagine driving the cutter and keeping it steady for your brother in arms to leap onto the drug ship?? This crew could teach most people many things about courage, strength and determination!

    God Bless the Coasties and keep them safe. Thank you for protecting our country.

    These guys are Bad A$$, for realz. Part of me does wish however they would not put themselves at risk. I can see one of these blowing up to send a message too. The idea above of 50cal to the rear end or a pound of C4 attached to the underwater side appeals to me.

      RatedProduct- ‘athletes’… ignorant self-centered loudmouths who get paid millions to play a game 😡😠😡. Who have never, ever put their own lives on the line in order to save people regardless of their politics, gender, race, national origin, religion, etc. You will never, ever see me on tv- but as a member of the Coast Guard, over a 20 year career, I put my own life on the line multiple times in order to help save about 1000 people I did not know- because it was the right thing to do 🤗. And yet ignorant, self centered idiots like Rapinoe and Krappernick call me ‘racist, homophobic, mysogynist”, etc. because I strongly support President Trump. They need to shut their mouths and go back to playing games. They would melt if they had to put their own lives on the line for complete strangers- they would never do it.

    The article is in righteous honor of our USCG.

    Have a terrific younger brother-in-law about ready to retire from a career first as an officer with the USCG (graduated from New London) then part 2 of his career winding up as a GS-13 Step 10 government employee contracted to the USCG. His careers have taken him all over NW quartersphere including the Arctic Ocean.

    Thank you Sundance.

    These guys (in the sub) are only a link in a chain. And not one of the important links at that.
    I’m glad they were caught, but I want to see the BIG links (bankers & politicians) interceded in the same way.
    Waiting for the day a bank CEO get a desert eagle shoved in his face while the DEA agent’s
    screaming “Kiss the ground you POS”!. All during a board meeting.
    Broadcast that, than sit back & watch the fur fly.
    $350 BILLION a year (estimated) is generated by the drug trade, yet only certain links are
    targeted by law enforcement. Boils my blood.

      The former U.S. Customs Service Special Agents used to conduct such investigations.
      Not so many now since the USCS S/As were merged into ICE/HSI.

      One of my favorites is the 1998 “Operation Casablanca” initiative which targeted, and caught, dozens of money launderers, including about 16 foreign banks, including Mexican banks.

      The Mexican government was so PO’d that they issued arrest warrants on the USCS S/As who worked the case. The U.S. government weren’t too happy about it either.

      (Background on the investigation is about half way down in this link.)

    Incredible footage of some massive drug seizures.

    Those brave military “Coasties” or tactical law enforcement Coast Guardsmen deserve a medal or recognition of some kind as do many other Coast Guard crew members not shown during other dramatic drug seizures.

    Retired from the Coast Guard in 1997. The smugglers were starting to use the semi submersibles back then (they were so uncommon back then I never saw one) but these new ones are far more advanced. Two of the cutters I served on (the Lipan and the Sitkinak) were based in Key West, so we saw a lot of law enforcement and illegal migrant interdiction action. The mention of the base in Key West brought back a lot of memories 😃😃😃. Big thumbs up to my fellow coasties on a job well done, especially to the one who boarded the semi submersible 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽!!! Super 😃😁😃! He upheld our reputation and tradition of being the ‘rogue navy’ 😎, pirates 😈 with morals and on the right side of the law 🤣! Like other first responders, we run towards danger, not away from it, and for the right reasons. I can imagine what was going through his mind as he banged on the sub’s hatch… “Game over buddy, time to walk the plank!” 🤣🤣🤣!!! Well done 😁😁😁!

    I’m surprised they didn’t find Hunter Biden in the submersible.
